Storyline

Archie appears on stage in front of a theater full of (live-action) kids each week and introduces his Fun House and the star of the show, the Giant Jukebox. The Archie gang gives its audience crazy blackout gags, outrageous puns and wacky jokes. The regular segments are "How to Catch a Man" with Big Ethel, "Thunderbolt Theatre" and "Giant Jukebox Jokes." Semi-regular features include "The Early Early Show," "Betty's Diary," "The Big, Big World of Sports" with Coach Cleats, an inept trapeze act with Reggie and Moose; and more. Each episode has three songs performed by The Archies. Written by J. Spurlin

Neil Brian Goldberg wrote the 32 famous Giant Jukebox songs
2 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I notice the raves about the great songs and messages in the 32 Giant Jukebox songs from Archies Funhouse, but nowhere is the unsung creator of these songs mentioned, so here it is: Mr Factory - We're One Big Family - Love Vibrations - Love Went Round The World - Sweet Saturday Night - Comes The Sun - La La La La Love - The Big Boat - Little By Little, and many others, were all written, arranged, and produced by Neil Brian Goldberg. I knew him. Mr Factory was the first ecology song to make major airwaves, and the other great songs were the first positive messages on kids TV. Thanks for allowing me to let people know the story behind these songs. (Jeff Barry wrote Sugar Sugar, but called in Neil to write and produce all of the Giant Jukebox songs.)
