The comic strip Blondie was created by cartoonist Chic Young who drew
the strip until his death in 1973, when
creative control passed to his son
Dean Young, who continues to write the strip.

The success of the strip, distributed by King Features Syndicate, led to
the long-running Blondie film series (1938–1950) and the popular Blondie
radio program (1939–1950).
