Archie's Funhouse -- Archie tries to use a soda pop machine, only to get everything except something to drink: hot dogs, alarm clocks, and even "Reggie in a Bottle."
Archie's Funhouse -- Archie tries out a talking photo machine, but the results are hardly to his liking. Outside the Fun House, Professor Jughead gives a skiing lesson, and later tries to elude Big Ethel as she attempts to capture him with "the old tiger-pit trick."
Archie's Funhouse -- While Jughead performs a running gag with a fire hose (which looks more like a rope!), Mr. Weatherby demonstrates how to pitch a pup tent, a painting of a kite springs to life, and Reggie dreams of being a fearless elephant hunter.
Archie's Funhouse -- Archies paints his jalopy with the "help" of Jughead's new high-powered (and low-functioning) spray gun. Reggie shows off his ski-jumping skills to an unimpressed Veronica.
Archie's Funhouse -- It's Laurel and Hardy redux, as Archie and Moose try to deliver a balky piano up a steep hill. Later, Archie films an old-fashioned melodramatic movie, with Betty tied to the tracks by Reggie, and Jughead running the train--without brakes.

Ahhhhhh, the good ol'days!, 11 April 2003
Author: (cfc_can@yahoo.com) from Toronto, Ontario

This was one of the first cartoon shows I ever saw and it is one of the few which I can still remember 30 years later. It was quite inventive for it's time. The Archies were already familiar fixtures on the Saturday morning circuit when this began. It basically took the characters and transplanted them into a Laugh-In/Saturday Night Live (well, a G-rated form that is) type of show. There were lots of one-liners, 1-3 minute sketches and recurring characters, like say, several segments in which Big Ethel would demonstrate a foolproof method to snag Jughead as he walked by, but naturally, Ethel would inevitably fall victim to the Wily Coyote syndrome. There were also frequent songs on the show which were presented in a style which may well have inspired the MTV station. These songs (from "The Giant Juke Box")were a bit deeper than the typical Archies bubblegum selections. Some of their songs dealt with racism ("We're One Big Family") and environmental pollution ("Mr.Factory"). All in all, a fun show that was fast paced, creative and sometimes topical, yet inoffensive (as all 70s cartoons were!). Hope it comes on video soon!
