Happy 78th wedding anniversary to Blondie and Dagwood

On February 17, 1933, Blondie Boopadoop and Dagwood Bumstead were married despite the protests of Dagwood's rich industrialist family. After getting disowned for marrying "beneath his class", Blondie and Dagwood settled down into domestic bliss with the arrival of son Alexander in 1934 and daughter Cookie in 1941.
