Dagwood gets in trouble with bookies and winds up in jail. Bank manager Samuel Breckinridge comes to his rescue to thank Dagwood for getting compulsive gambler Mrs. Breckinridge out of the casino just before the police raid.
Dagwood (Arthur Lake) comes home to find the police waiting for him. Someone has forged Dagwood's signature on a check. But as it turns out, Dagwood wrote the check him to get paid back. Now you know why they call him Dagwood. Blondie (Penny Singleton) sure is upset. Alvin (Danny Mummert) drops by and lets Blondie know he heard the argument all the way in his house. Baby Dumpling (Larry Simms) and Alvin begin to use slang, much to the disapproval of Blondie. Dagwood buys a show dog that causes havoc in the Bumstead house. This film does not use the early previews, but the theme song is used this time. The mailman in the film hides up in the tree and we all know why. William Frawley plays a dog owner. This role was 10 years before the "I Love Lucy" tv series. This film is a bit unpleasant at times. Too much serious Bumstead arguing and yelling. Bad writing and directing. But you might like this one if you are a dog lover. The next film in the series is BLONDIE GOES TO COLLEGE.
