Archie Andrews - Dallas McKennon
 
Archie and his friends had already enjoyed twenty-seven years of popularity in comic book form by the time they made it to Saturday morning television. The various Archies series (nine over the course of twenty years) mixed quick, Laugh-In inspired comic sketches with adventures and pop music.

After the 1974-76 flop The U.S. of Archie, NBC decided to bring the vibrant fun back to the formerly powerful Archie series. The hour-long The New Archie/Sabrina Hour combined segments from earlier seasons of CBS The Archies and Sabrina, both Archie Comics properties.

This package lasted only a few months before NBC split them up into the half-hour formatted Sabrina, Super Witch and Archie's Bang-Shang Lalapalooza Show. Each of these series also lasted only a few months, and Archie and friends left Saturday morning for a ten-year dry spell. The gang from Riverdale High finally returned in 1987 with The New Archies.
