Storyline

Meet Archie Andrews, ace reporter for the Riverdale High School student paper. Weirdness is his beat. It all starts the day the local TV station plays a twelve-hour monster movie marathon, followed by a trivia contest. Archie should have known something was wrong when Jughead actually wins! It turns out the TV station has been invaded by a body-snatching space spud. When the bad guys are supernatural, all bets are off. Archie faces his greatest challenge yet when Riverdale is invaded by a gang of hungry vampires. Things come to a chilling climax at Veronica's Halloween party as Reggie, Betty, Jughead and Archie are turned into vampires, one by one - until only Veronica is left to save the world! But can she do it without messing up her hair or breaking a nail... ? Written by heartbreak_king-2

Archie Andrews is a chick magnet, and a reporter for the Riverdale High School, Student Paper. He seems to encounter odd things all the time, and writes about his weird experiences for the school paper. It commences with a twelve hour monster movie marathon. Archie's best pal Jughead who is a drone when it comes to T.V, wins a trivia contest, but little does he know the T.V station has been taken over by an invasion of body snatching potatoes! When the rest of the gang succumbs to these potatoes, they turn into vampires of sorts, and Archie must uncover the mystery before it's too late

I loved this show as a teenager, and revisiting it after so many years brought back many happy memories. I was obsessed with anything Archie related, and discovered this T.V show. This episode is a tribute of sorts to The Invasion of The Body Snatchers, only with a bit of a creative twist. I was really impressed by the innovativeness of this episode. I'm not sure if this is suitable for kids. It has some creepy situations for a cartoon. This is on You-Tube, so if you are pining to revisit your childhood with this show like I did, I would definitely recommend it.

8/10
