Rare Treats: Archie & His New Pals (1969)

As CBS upgraded The Archie Show to The Archie Comedy Hour for a second season of teenage hijinks at Riverdale High, the network thought it best to give the gang a primetime forum.

Archie & His New Pals, fittingly sponsored by Pals vitamins for kids, hasn't seen the light of day since its initial broadcast in September 1969. It also marks the debut of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, who is making her debut at Riverdale High......

Of course, we've showcased "Get on the Line" before. Now, you get the whole enchilada. I guess it seems appropriate that, with Election Day right around the corner, Moose besting Reggie for Student Council President might be a harbinger of things to come.

Rating: B.
