We all have fond memories of reading about Archie Andrews and the gang. We’re entranced by his ever faithful friend Jughead, his torn affections between nice girl Betty and rich Veronica, and of course his trouble maker pal, Reggie. Their misadventures filled many comic digests that we all grew up reading. Recently, there has been a resurgence in Riverdale popularity. The CW currently has their own take on the lives of the Riverdale gang in the aptly named “Riverdale“. Although a great show in its own right, storylines may be a little more adult than the original comics. A teen drama fully stocked with affairs, drugs, and a family of corrupt redheads, CW’s Riverdale is sure to have you biting your nails and pining for Jughead.
For the kids and the kid inside, we have stumbled across a series we can’t get enough of: Archie’s Weird Mysteries. This 40 episode animated series features all the fun of the Archie comics and follows them as they become their own paranormal sleuths.
From The DVD box: “Things are getting weird in Riverdale, home of all-American boy and high school newspaper reporter, Archie Andrews. Ever since an experiment in the high school physics lab went awry, Riverdale has become a magnet for the stuff of which “B-Movies” are made of. A swamp creature has taken up residence in the old swimming hole. Frankenstein’s monster is hanging out on Lover’s Lane. Mad Scientists, werewolves, vampires, giant ants,UFO’s and zombies are invading Riverdale. It is thrills, chills, and a whole lot of laughs. Join Archie and his pals as they do their best to unravel Archie’s Weird Mysteries”.
