If you are expecting Teen aged adventures from Archie and friends, be aware that this a cross between The Archies (Sugar, Sugar) and Scooby doo. All the episodes are featuring supernatural beings or events. Aired in 1999-2000, it casts the usual bunch of High school kids, but it does not have the a joke per story approach. Betty, Reggie and the others are always mixed up in some Sci-fi plot. It was as refreshing as surprisung... Animation and sounds are simpleto keep it close to the originals. Each episode has a little "morale" attached to it (required by thr networks). It is just plain FUN !!!!
Fans of secondary characthers such as Midge, Moose or Big Ethel have to know that they appear only once or twice in the course of 40 episodes. Dilton will be there on and off. Authors are grabbing ideas from various Horror/Sci-fi movies and brings them to life with Archie and his friends (Ex : VEronica becomes the 50-feet woman).
To beef up the DVDs, you are served a few episodes of the Sabrina and the "Mona the Vampire" cartoon. So even with the cons, this complete set is as irresistible as Archie and friends.
