The cartoon Sabrina was a not much of a cartoon even when it first came out. This was clearly another "Archie" product, in fact Sabrina started appearing in the "Archie" cartoons for a few weeks before Sabrina came out on her own. The standards in 1970-71 weren't real high, but we (my brother and I, Saturday Morning Cartoon aficionados of the highest order at 8 and 10 years old) always recognized the "Archie" cartoons as clearly second or third rate. It was clearly recognized as such, because after a short run on late Saturday mornings, it switched to the Sunday morning "filler" slot. Sabrina herself was OK, but the associated characters were pretty annoying. I can tell you that Aunt Zelda looks A LOT better in real life (AKA live action Sabrina) than on this cartoon!
The stories were typically witless, with no imagination and painfully loud and blatantly fake laugh track thoughtfully telling you which were the funny parts. There was no other way to tell! Quickly spun off were the "Groovy Ghoulies", an assortment of Munsters rejects related (in some undefined way) to Sabrina. This actually lasted longer than the Sabrina show itself. I guess they never bothered to look up the meaning of the word "ghoul".
Not the worst of it's era, but "Hot Wheels" was more entertaining, and "Scooby-Doo" looks like "Masterpiece Theater" in comparison.
