Storyline

Archie appears on stage in front of a theater full of (live-action) kids each week and introduces his Fun House and the star of the show, the Giant Jukebox. The Archie gang gives its audience crazy blackout gags, outrageous puns and wacky jokes. The regular segments are "How to Catch a Man" with Big Ethel, "Thunderbolt Theatre" and "Giant Jukebox Jokes." Semi-regular features include "The Early Early Show," "Betty's Diary," "The Big, Big World of Sports" with Coach Cleats, an inept trapeze act with Reggie and Moose; and more. Each episode has three songs performed by The Archies. Written by J. Spurlin

Ahhhhhh, the good ol'days!
11 April 2003 | by cfc_canSee all my reviews

This was one of the first cartoon shows I ever saw and it is one of the few which I can still remember 30 years later. It was quite inventive for it's time. The Archies were already familiar fixtures on the Saturday morning circuit when this began. It basically took the characters and transplanted them into a Laugh-In/Saturday Night Live (well, a G-rated form that is) type of show. There were lots of one-liners, 1-3 minute sketches and recurring characters, like say, several segments in which Big Ethel would demonstrate a foolproof method to snag Jughead as he walked by, but naturally, Ethel would inevitably fall victim to the Wily Coyote syndrome. There were also frequent songs on the show which were presented in a style which may well have inspired the MTV station. These songs (from "The Giant Juke Box")were a bit deeper than the typical Archies bubblegum selections. Some of their songs dealt with racism ("We're One Big Family") and environmental pollution ("Mr.Factory"). All in all, a fun show that was fast paced, creative and sometimes topical, yet inoffensive (as all 70s cartoons were!). Hope it comes on video soon!
