Blondie

Blondie (also known as The New Blondie) is an American sitcom that aired on CBS during the 1968-1969 television season.  The series is an updated version of the 1957 TV series that was based on the comic strip of the same name.  The series stars Will Hutchins as Dagwood Bumstead and Jim Backusas his boss Mr. Dithers, and featured child character actress Pamelyn Ferdin as the Bumstead’s daughter, and character actor Bryan O’Byrne as the hapless mailman, always getting run over by Dagwood hurrying out the door, late for work..

 

The series is known for its opening theme, which featured the comic strip characters in animated form before transforming into the actors playing the characters.  Like the 1957 version, which lasted only one season, this version of the series lasted a total of 13 weeks before being canceled.
