Unfortunately, someone got the bright idea to fiddle with the "top-rated kid's cartoon", and in quite bizarre fashion, switched it from a cartoon segment format into a Laugh-In clone - with no stories at all, just stupid one-liners and sight gags that even pre-schoolers would find lame. My kids were incredibly disappointed in the retooled show, and have not touched the Archie's Funhouse DVD set since (while watching The Archie Show S1 until the DVD case fell apart). The *only* good thing about this entire "Funhouse" set is that it includes the Sabrina intro TV movie, which the kids and I enjoyed - as it is an actual story with dialogue and a plot.
Why the hugely-successful Archie Show switched to a Laugh-In format for Season 2 is a question that will plague me forever, and it is no surprise that this lame-duck series dropped off the ratings chart and was quickly cancelled afterwards. No series in my memory has fallen off so drastically in so short a time - Archie went from #1 to cancelled in just one year!

The Archies perform three songs per episode which honestly don't have the high production quality of their earlier songs, but they're not bad at all. "Love Vibrations" however is a classic. I think one thing missing from this set is an audio CD of the show's songs. You know this collector will snap it up.
The bonus feature featuring Ron Dante is worth the price. He leaves no question unanswered about how he became "Archie" for Don Kirshner's music machine. The Archies' music was just as good as anyone's during this time of the late 60's and early 70's. They had top-notch session musicians, singers, and producers. Jeff Barry was their main songwriter and producer and yes, ladies & gentlemen, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. One mistake I noticed was the transpositioning of the names Jeff Barry and Andy Kim when they were superimposed over their images. Jeff is on the screen's left, Andy is on the right.

"The Archie Show" was a cool, animated cartoon tv series on Saturday morning television for children. . It was based upon the teenagers who went to Riverdale High School. Archie is the nice red-head guy. Jughead is the tall, skinny best friend of Archie's who wears a hat made into a crown. Jughead loves to eat. Veronica is the brunette with a southern accent. Betty is the blond. She is in love with Archie and writes tall-tales in her diary.
Archie comes out on stage in the theater and welcomes the excited children in the seats. Reggie is up to his practical jokes on Archie. Jughead is trying to keep his cool, but, here comes Big Ethel. Actually Ethel is skinny and a farm girl. She loves Jughead and chases after him.
After Archie and his friends entertain you and make you laugh, they will treat you to 3 songs. In the first episode, "Love Vibrations" "Falling in Love is Fun", "Im Just Your Puppet on a String".
Each episode is full of jokes and fun and you always get 3 songs.
All 23 episodes are wholesome and pre-teens love the show. If you are an adult, you might catch herself singing some of the songs to yourself in the kitchen.
