In 1930 Chic Young drew his first Blondie cartoon, about a carefree flapper girl named Blondie Boopadoop who lived it up like the liberated woman she was ... until 1933, when she married the dopey Dagwood Bumstead. Dagwood has been slaving away for his awful boss Mr. Dithers ever since, as Blondie plays the role of the loving wife. They've been happily married, oversize sandwiches and all, for 77 years and counting.
