DAG – Proving that he'll watch nearly anything in the pursuit of the occasional comic nugget, Aaron Neathery sits through all 28 of the Blondie Columbia features and writes to tell about it. The Blondie flicks were, like the Bowery Boys features, fare that often showed up in low-traffic timeslots on local teevee stations during my wasted youth. Remember catching a few back in the day, but I can't say they were especially memorable but for the presence of Penny Singleton, already cemented in my Boomer brain as the voice of Jane Jetson. Still, Aaron's piqued my curiosity about the series' big musical entry, Blondie Goes Latin, wherein, "The Bumsteads sing . . . dance . . . and make the wild waves wilder . . ." Yeah, when I think Latin Passion, I think Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead . . .
