Did You Know?


Inspired by his son's love of Archie comic books, Don Kirshner met with that organization, Filmation (the television animation company) and CBS-TV and pitched his idea. The Archie Show debuted on CBS in September, 1968. While Kirshner and others contend that The Archies' million-selling 1969 single "Sugar, Sugar" was originally written for the Monkees, record producer/songwriter Jeff Barry is quite firm in his statement that he and singer Andy Kim wrote the song specifically for the Archies, shortly after The Archie Show debuted.

Classic Cartoon of the Early 70s!
29 November 2000 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Anyone who ever read an Archie comic will enjoy The Archie Comedy Hour cartoon show. It ran for several years in different formats. The best format was when they had two segments about Archie and the gang with a song and a dance-of-the-week sandwiched in between. The animation may seem primitive today but back then, no one complained. The content avoided important issues and wrapped things up with a safe sitcom-like bow but that was part of the fun. It did not contain any of the violence and mean spirited-ness that is sometimes found in the Archie comics (i.e. the cartoon Big Moose is dumb but very gentle rather than brutal like he so often was in the comics) The music that the Archies played was pretty cool. Who can forget the hit "Sugar Sugar"? Oddly, Hot Dog, who was usually a background player in the comics, plays a much bigger part in the cartoon. Not only that, he has a voice as well (that is, his thoughts can be heard) The show changed many times over the years. He even dances with the gang during the musical numbers. The worst idea was when they made "US of Archie" to celebrate the Bicentennial. While it's unlikely that The Archie Comedy Hour" would be too popular with today's kids, it's great fun for anyone who grew up in the 70s and sang along with the show's opening theme. ("Hey Jughead, where are you?")
