Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Sugar, Sugar (1969)

A few months back, I posted a clip of Ron Dante, the singing voice behind Archie Andrews, performing The Archies' lone #1 hit, "Sugar, Sugar". Now, let's return to 1969 for the original video, taken from an episode of The Archie Comedy Hour. The gang's working the Riverdale Carnival until it's time to play. Principal Waldo Weatherbee introduces the band, and Archie (Dallas McKennon, Daniel Boone) queues up "Sugar, Sugar".

The cool part to this clip, uploaded by Windsorbear, is seeing Sabrina's kisses turn Reggie into a frog and Archie into a rabbit, if but for a short time.
