The film begins with a scene from the story (before the credits). The newspaper announces a vacation. Alvin visits and shows his education. Mr. Beasley delivers the mail in spite of difficulties. J. C. Dithers wants his vacation; Dagwood resigns. His coworkers give him a briefcase for his vacation! Will Dagwood go fishing? Will Blondie's sister come to visit? Will Blondie take Dagwood's job? Will the fishing trip have complications? The milkman uses a horse to pull his cart. [There is a serious undertone to the comic talk.] Dithers makes the deal in Washington, so Blondie will buy that property. There is music and dancing. You've got to see that comic dance routine! "Start packing!" There is another misunderstanding. Who else would mess up a deal like Dagwood? And so there is a happy ending.
While the characters are from the comic strip the stories seem to be created in Hollywood. The success of this series shows that it was appreciated by the audience. This could be due to its dealing with ordinary life.
In "Blondie Meets the Boss" Dagwood has quit his job since Mr. Dithers wants him to cancel his vacation. Blondie goes to try and get his job back and Dithers gives her the job instead of Dagwood. Dagwood now has to play home-maker! Eventually this all leads to a nightclub where Blondie's sister Dot is going to be in a jitterbug dancing contest that Dagwood accidently gets caught up in in the films funniest slapstick moment. This really was one of the strongest entries in the series. Lot's of laughs and good, innocent golden age fun.
