Trivia / Blondie

Comic strip
  • Defictionalization: Very large sandwiches are now known as "Dagwoods" in some parts of the United States. (Including this very wiki!)
  • Milestone Celebration: The 75th anniversary of the strip, which involved a Massive Multiplayer Crossover of various other comic strips.
  • Outlived Its Creator: Chic Young died in 1973, but Blondie keeps on chugging along.
  • Recycled Script: Not surprising for such a long runner. Examples include a strip where the Bumsteads and the Woodleys couldn't agree on what movie to go and see and going to rent a video instead didn't solve the problem, and one where in an earlier version, Blondie could not get herself to overcome her revulsion toward a statuette that Dagwood had bought and which was recycled at least twice with Dagwood having a similar reaction to Blondie's new hairstyle.
