"Blondie" (also known as "The New Blondie") is short-lived 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.

ynopsis

"Blondie" starred Will Hutchins and Patricia Harty as the Bumsteads, with Jim Backus playing Mr. Dithers alongside his real life wife Henny Backus, who played Cora Dithers. The series is also known for its opening scene, which featured the comic strip characters in animated form before transforming into the actors playing the characters. Like the 1957 version, this one would also be short-lived due to competition on Thursday nights lasting only 13 episodes.

This version of the series, which was jointly produced by CBS Productions, King Features Syndicate and Kayro Productions, ran from September 26, 1968 to January 9, 1969.
