2.0 out of 5 stars where's sugar sugar? June 20 2010
By Cheryl TOP 100 REVIEWER
Overall, this series just isn't as good as I remember (way back when). I loved the music, and there's still plenty of it (and it's worthwhile), but where's the Sugar Sugar theme song? (I don't understand how they could put out this dvd set without the Archies' signature song.) As for bonus material, there is an interview featurette with producer Lou Scheimer and he even refers to the Archies' massive hit as well as Jingle Jangle, (but neither appear on this set which is ironically called "The Complete Series"). That big disappointment aside, there are also "jukebox" features on both discs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Vintage Archie Cartoons Nov. 2 2011
By Tango and Cash TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I bought this without having watched a minute of the original show, and simply due to my kids being big Archie fans. We were not disappointed, and this series is as close as you can get to recreating the comic books and digests in animated form. Plus, there are truly kitsch segments like the "Dance of the Week" and the Archie's singing their latest tune, both of which are classic late-60's gems.

There are a few niggles that took a star off, such as Veronica's "Southern Belle" voice, and the near-absence of some popular characters (Moose appears only a few times), including the total absence of others like Midge, but overall, I highly recommend this for fans of the comics. My kids absolutely love it, and have played the DVDs so many times the case has started to fall apart.

Just skip the horrible Archie's Funhouse Season 2 fiasco (which is where "Sugar Sugar" and other hits aired BTW), and move right onto the Sabrina spinoff.

Fun cartoon to add live to the comic books. I was a HUGE Archie comic book collector as a kid and it's fun to see the gang act out some of my fave stories. I always appreciate when reviews have the episode list so here's what this collection offers:

The added distraction/The disappearing act
A hard day's knight/beauty is only fur deep
Anchors away/Jughead's double
The Circus/The prize winner
Flying Saucers/Field trip (aka the picnic)
The Marathon/Way out like west
Hot rod dog/Snow business
A chimp off the old block/Who's afraid of Reggie Wolf
Kids day/Jughead 'Sampson' Jones
Rocket Rock/Par one
Groovie Ghosts/P.C.F hot dog
Surf-bored/The computer
The old sea dog/Jughead's Girl
Dilton's folly/Lodge's Dept. Store
Privatre eye Jughead/Reggie's Cousin
Strike tree/The cat next door
The Jones' farm/Veronica's veil

5.0 out of 5 stars The Archie Show July 12 2014
By Denise TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is so much fun to see The Archie Show again. It is so “young, happy and peppy”.
I am very happy I bought this DVD.
The DVD is brand new and I had not problems whatsoever with any of the episodes... and Amazon delivers their products so rapidly, the next step will be an arm getting out of your computer to give you the product... like in the cartoons :)
