Panel one: Jingles the elf is introducing himself to the readers as he flies over a snow filled Riverdale and extends his arms for the reader to follow him as he prepares to fly downward. All the roofs have snow on them, several small snow man can be seen, and the town has several and various Christmas decorations lit up to help show how beautiful Riverdale is after a December snow.
Jingles: Happy Holidays, Folks.
Jingles: My name is Jingles. I’m one of Santa’s elves you hear about, and when I have time during Christmas Eve after making a few thousand toys, I like to venture into the wonderful town of Riverdale…
Panel two: Jingles is at the windows of The Chocklit Shoppe as Archie is giving Reggie a Christmas present as Reggie examines it as he is obviously not happy at the size of it. Pop Tate has a Christmas tree decorated and several Christmas reefs hanging on the walls. The outside of his tables and counter are decorated with red and green tinsel. Pop Tate is wearing a Santa hat as he is working on wrapping a pizza pan as a Christmas gift for someone.
Jingles: …to visit Archie and his crew since they’re always fun to hang with!
Panel three: Reggie is sticking his tongue out as he has ripped through the wrapping and box and is holding out a green and red sweater with various Christmas tree patterns on it. Archie glares at Reggie and motions like he’s going to punch him. Jingles frowns at Reggie.
Reggie: Yuck! What were you thinking, Andrews?! I wouldn’t be caught dead in this abomination of stitch work mishmash!
Archie: Why don’t you try it on, and we’ll go from there, Reggie!
Jingles: Well, at least of them at any rate--!
Panel one: Jingles goes transparent as he flies into the Chocklit Shop window. Archie and the gang are near the counter. Each one of the crew has four gifts given to them from the others. Only Reggie has opened one of his gifts as he has casually left his gifts on the ground. Betty and Veronica are scolding Reggie as he rolls his eyes as he wads up the sweater into a ball. Jughead is sitting in his stool as he listens while sipping a soda through a straw. Archie lets out his empty pockets as he sadly looks over at Veronica in agreement. Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica all have a similar looking flat gift wrapped with blue wrapping with red R’s on them in their gift pile. Pop Tate almost has the pizza pan decorated as he begins to tape it closed. Pop Tate has small pieces of tape with one end stuck to his chin.
Jingles: Better go invisible to where even children can’t see me…and elvesdrop.
Betty: Reggie Mantle! That’s a horrible thing to say! After all, it’s the though that counts!
Veronica: Exactly, Betty! Besides, you know Archiekins is poor!
Caption: Christmas elf fact: Elves can only be seen by children and teens who believe. Hope you do.
Panel two: Reggie is boasting as he extends his arms as Jingles is flying overhead and shakes his head in disapproval.
Reggie: Hey when you’re the greatest human being alive, you deserve only the best! Because they broke the mold when they made me!
Panel three: Reggie glares over his shoulder as Jughead pokes fun at Reggie to Reggie’s disapproval. Above him, Jingles is trying to hold back from laughing at Reggie.
Jughead: I wouldn’t want to make the same mistake twice either.
Panel four: Reggie is storming out of Chocklit Shop with his gifts after having shoved the wadded up sweater into Jughead’s mouth as the others gather around Jughead as they look on in shock and amazement. Jingles is above trying vainly to fit his fist into his mouth as he can’t understand how Reggie was able to do that. Pop Tate is walking away from his completely wrapped gift as it has a tag reading: To Segarini From: Pop Tate—just because it’s Christmas!!
Reggie: I take it back, Arch. It’s not a bad gift.
Reggie: I think I’ll spend a few hours in the ol’ trophy room and reflect on my grand accomplishments. I’ll open these gifts if I think of it later.
Jingles: Sheesh. Reggie’s ego is bigger than Santa’s bag before the first drop off!
Panel one: Betty is helping Jughead get the sweater out of his mouth as Archie and Veronica each hold their gift from Reggie. It is small and flat with the same wrapping: Blue with red R’s.
Betty: You okay, Juggie?
Jughead: Reggie left so that helps…!
Archie: Hey, anyone else notice how Reggie’s gifts for us look about the same?
Panel two: Archie and the rest of the gang begin to unwrap their gifts from Reggie as Jingles floats overhead to see what Reggie gave everyone.
Panel three: Jughead, Archie, and Veronica groan as they each hold up a picture of Reggie’s face smiling and winking at them. Above them Jingles is slapping his head in disappointment. Betty is examining her picture a bit more as she tilts her head and is surprised by it.
Veronica: How egotistical can one human being get?
Jughead: You’re the expert, Ronnie.
Panel four: Archie is looking over at Betty’s picture of Reggie as it’s the same thing only signed by him reading: TO A GAL WHO HAS A WONDERFUL PAL, REGGIE. Betty is shrugging her shoulders as she blushes as she tries to act humble. Ronnie is standing over Jughead and wiping her hands right after she had stuffed the sweater back into Jughead’s mouth as leans back in his stool, his left arm across the counter as he begins to gather himself back up. Jingles is turning back visible as he flies out of the Chocklit Shop. Pop Tate is back at the counter as he is unwrapping a frying pan with pizza decoration wrap to show it’s from Segarini. On the wrapping is a note: YOU NEED ALL THE HELP…merry Christmas….
Archie: Look who the favorite is!
Betty: Heh. I um…maybe his pen ran out of ink after my picture…?
Panel one: Jingles is full visible as he flies over the head of a mother and father walking their son home after shopping; the mother is carrying two toy bags while the father carries a train set box as the boy looks up and points at Jingles.
Jingles: Sheesh! That guy gets worse and worse every year!
Panel two: Jingles is soaring down towards Reggie’s house as there is a banner across the house reading: THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL IS BEING IN THIS FAMILY. The house is decorated for Christmas with various oversized and bright lights that seem more like they belong in a rock concert light show as several people walking and driving by are blinded by the lights. Two Christmas trees are decorated inbetween the driveway leading to the Mantle home.
Jingles: He’s self-centered, uncaring, egotistical, rude every waking moment…
Panel three: Jingles flies into the mansion as half his body is in a room where a nearby trophy self is full of glistening and polished trophies. Jingles is taken by surprise a what he sees off- panel.
Panel four: Jingles is all the way in as he is sitting in air as he rubs his right hand in his beard as we are in Reggie’s trophy room as it is filled with various golden trophies of different figures such as football, soccer, baseball, smile, and other outrageous awards on several shelves that wrap around the room. Taped to the wall are various A papers. The paper closest to Jingle is a kindergarten drawing of a stick figure Reggie standing on top of the world with a golden star placed on the right hand side of the paper. Along the walls are several fat heads of Reggie and his face as he strikes various poses and different smiles and winks. On a wall is a mirror with a sign above it reading: THE WINNER. In a glass case along the right wall is various family pictures of Reggie and his family as they celebrate various holidays and accomplishments. The only thing not decorated is a window showing the sun beginning to set. In the middle of it all is Reggie in a lazy-boy who has fallen asleep with the Christmas presents from his friends dumped at the right side.
Reggie: …zzzzz—I’m the greatest---zzz…
Jingles: …And even when he sleeps, too--!
Panel five: Jingles is floating over Reggie as he puts his index finger to his lip and squints his left eye as he begins to come up with a plan. Reggie is turning over to his side as he gets even more comfortable.
Reggie: …zzzzz—Better than you, mister world leader--?yep---zzzz…
Jingles: Dreaming, huh?
Panel one: Jingles is shrinking down and going into Reggie’s ear as he prepares to enter Reggie’s dream as the edges of the panel begins to round off.
Jingles: I’ve just come up with a scheme for a rehabilitating dream!
Panel two: A close-up on Reggie as he begins to stir as it is now night out and only a dim light that comes from no where lights the room in Reggie’s dream.
Reggie: Uh…I was having the best dream…
Panel three: It is now night in the trophy room as Reggie stretches his arms and legs as he lets out a yawn. Unnoticed by him are three elf shadows stretching across the wall carrying an empty burlap sack towards him.
Reggie: How did I go from teen president to sugarplum faries..?!
Panel four: Three elves jump at Reggie from behind his lazy-boy with the burlap sack as they are within seconds of capturing him as Reggie turns his head in surprise.
Elf one: There’s the one Big Red wants!
Elf two: Grab’em!!
Reggie: Yikes! At least the sugarplum fairies were kinda cute--!!
Panel five: The three elves are carrying Reggie out as he is thrashing in the burlap sack as the three elves struggling to carry him as one is carrying him by the head, one is under him at his back, and the other has his feet and is nearly lifted off the ground.
Reggie: Yet me out of here, you little munchkins, and I’ll punt you all the way back to Oz!!
Elf three: We’re elves, Buster. Of the toys, not shoe, makin’ variety. And our boss wants a word with ya!
Panel one: The burlap sack is coming off Reggie as he is on the ground on a floor made of wooden planks. On the ground at his hands are various decorated Christmas candy and a doll wearing a Santa hat.
Reggie: I am Reggie Mantle!! I do not deserve this sort of treatment!!
Panel two: Reggie looks up in shock at who he sees. Just behind Reggie are several elves in a jury and Jingles as the prosecutor as he spins a candycane on one finger as he looks on proudly of his dream weaving work.
Off-panel: Ho Ho Ho!! Is that so, Reginald Mantle!?
Panel three: A full shot of the entire courtroom as Santa Claus is in the judge’s podium that stands twelve feet tall over Reggie as Reggie is still sitting on the ground as he looks up at Santa Claus. From Santa’s desk is a large scroll that stretches to the ground. Several elves are serving as juries. Two elves wearing purple sunglasses and a red police hat serve as the bailiffs. Santa’s judge pulpit has several red and green stockings on it. Santa’s judge gavel has a red and white striped handle. Various toys of different types are piled to the side with several toy cars and robot toys activated as they move about the courtroom.
Santa Claus: Well, Santa Claus has been watching you, and Santa will be the judge of that!
Reggie: I plead the 5th!! I’ll plead the 25th if it’ll help!!

Panel one: The setting is Riverdale High as Archie and Jughead are heading to Miss Grundy’s class. Archie has his backpack slung over his shoulder as Jughead is crumpling up a notebook as he’s enraged. Several students along the hall are going into their locker. One student has a giant clown dummy pop out of his locker and acts nonchalant about it while the teens around him jump back. Mr. Adams is serving as hall monitor for the teachers and just rolls his eyes at the display.
Jughead: I can’t stand it Archie! Every time I have gone to Pop’s the last two weeks, that…that Trula Twyst has been their first and taken my sacred seat!
Archie: C’mon, Jugster. Calm down. Lately it’s been girls making you mad instead of the other way around.
Panel two: Archie is smiling as Jughead is beginning to calm down as he takes in deep breaths. Behind Archie and Jughead a legion of paper airplanes are chasing after some teenager wearing an aviator helmet.
Jughead: You’re right. I’ll just relax. Think of lunch today. Forget all about that heinous fiend…
Archie: That’s m’boy!
Panel three: Archie’s positive mood becomes one of upcoming dread as he looks ahead. Jughead is looking past Archie’s shoulder to see.
Jughead: Uh-oh what?
Panel four: A shot of the class room as the seats are filled with the various students save for one seat next to Trula Twyst. Sitting behind are Betty and Veronica as Veronica is leaning a hair care magazine over to share with Betty as Betty begins to fiddle with her ponytail. The cover of the magazine: HAIR STYLE: HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT YOUR PONYTAIL In the back of the room, Reggie is being chased away from Midge by a leering Moose who takes a seat close to her. Chuck is at his seat just doodling on scrap paper. At the door frame, Archie is pointing over to Trula Twyst reluctantly as Jughead is back to being angry as he slams his notebook down. A clock is hanging just above the blackboard as it is just a few seconds until eight.
Archie: Uh-oh that!
Jughead: I can’t believe it!!! She planted her butt on my favorite seat and now she’s branching out!!
Panel one: Archie is slowly beginning to sit in the empty seat next to Trula as Jughead slams his hands down on Trula’s desk as she smirks up at him. Betty and Veronica turn as they turn their attention to Jughead. The clock is even closer to eight.
Jughead: That’s it!! First the Chocklit Shoppe and now here?!
Jughead: No! No! No!
Archie: Jughead, class is about to start…
Panel two: Trula Twyst arrogantly responds to Jughead as Jughead has his fists clenched, his head lowered, and his shoulders raised as he looks like he’s going to explode. More of the students begin to look over towards Jughead; such as Chuck who has stopped doodling.
Trula: Public establishment and public school in a room with no assigned seating.
Trula: I can sit where ever I want.
Panel three: The bell begins to ring as Miss. Grundy walks into the classroom with her satchel and gradebook. Jughead doesn’t pay her any attention as he is still yelling at Trula. Archie is trying to get Jughead’s attention as he points towards Ms. Grundy, but Jughead is too focused on Trula to notice.
Jughead: You don’t want to sit there!! You’re just taking my seat out of spite!! If you were a serpent, you’d kill over from your own venom in your veins!!
Panel four: Miss. Grundy is trying to get Jughead’s attention as she’s preparing to begin class. Jughead is glaring down at Trula as Trula is now a little less cocky and more concerned that Jughead is still going at her.
Miss. Grundy: Jughead, please take a seat. We need to begin class if we—
Jughead: Of all the females I have to tolerate on a daily basis, you are the most atrocious!! And that’s saying something since you all frustrate me nearly every second!!
Trula: Uh, Juggers…!
Panel four: Miss. Grundy is walking towards Jughead and beginning to place a hand on his shoulder as she is becoming upset with him not listening to her and holding up class. Jughead begins to flay is arms around wildly. Trula is looking on shocked as Archie clenches his jaw in fright and does the “zip it” finger motion with his fingers at his mouth.
Jughead: Don’t you Juggers me!!
Miss. Grundy: Mr. Jones! I have asked you to take a seat! And I will not ask you again!!
Panel one: Jughead turns and scream at the top of his lungs at Misss. Grundy as all the students in the class drop their jaws in shock. Miss. Grundy is taken back
Jughead: AND I’M TELLING YOU TO BE QUIET WOMAN!!!
Miss. Grundy: !!!
Panel two: Jughead goes wide eyed as Jughead realizes what he had just said to Msss. Grundy. All the students in the room look on as they still cannot believe what they have just seen and heard.
Panel three: Jughead smiles vainly and crosses his legs with his right shoe toe rubbing against the ground inoffensively. Jughead is wiping his brow with his left hand and his right hand is at his side shaking nervously as Miss. Grundy glares at Jughead as her hands are at her hips.
Jughead: Umm…err…eee…let me finish…
Jughead: I mean… And I’m telling you to be…quiet whoa man— becauseI need to go take a seat for class to start…!
Panel four: Miss. Grundy has Jughead by the back of his shirt as he is dragging him across the ground as she storms out of the classroom with a distressed Jughead who lets his entire body go limp as he awaits his fate. Trula exhauls as she looks on while Archie looks over and glares at Trula. Everyone else is still looking on. One student is standing up, with his right arm over his chest as he acts like he’ll never see Jughead again as he begins to cry.
Ms. Grundy: Let me help you! I know the perfect seat for you! The chair just in front of Principal Weatherbee’s desk!
Jughead: I know, I know, right beside the guillotine.
Panel one: A shot of the Principal office door as Mr. Svenson is using his waxer on a nearby wall to get it sparkling clean as he strains to hold it up and move it about. In a locker, just peeping out the kid with the aviator helmet looks on as the paper air planes seem to be circling around the hall to find him.
Inside the office: Forsythe Pendleton Jones the third, I am disappointed in you!
Panel two: Mr. Weatherbee is sitting at his desk with his hands folded as he looks sternly at Jughead. Jughead is slumped and has his chin in his hands as he is still concerned about being sent to the principal office and what awaits. On Mr. Weatherbee’s desk, are several pack of cards built like castle. Mr. Weatherbee’s desk plate has his name plus several bees carved into it. Mr. Weatherbee has a large folder on his desk that reads: Finance: Accidents involving/caused by Archie Andrews.
Mr. Weatherbee: Do I expect tardies? From you, yes. Eating in class? Definitely.
Jughead: And I haven’t disappointed yet.
Panel three: Mr. Weatherbee stands up and leans over towards Jughead, accidentally knocking down his card castle as he bangs his fist across his desk. This startles Jughead as he stands up straight and is in full alert mode.
Mr. Weatherbee: But being disrespectful to any member of the faculty is inexcusable!
Panel four: Jughead begins to talks as Mr. Weatherbee moves to the right side of his desk as Miss. Philips, carrying large folder, begins to come into the office but stops as she waits for Mr. Weatherbee to acknowledge her if it is okay for her to interrupt. On the floor, the cards have landed in a perfect solitary game set up.
Jughead: But I can make an excuse! It’s that Trula Twyst! She provoked me into a random act of insanity!!
Panel five: Mr. Weatherbee is talking as Jughead feigns surprise and points at his own chest with both thumbs in a “what, me” expression and body language. Mr. Weatherbee is motioning that it’s okay for Miss Philips to enter his office while he is dealing with Jughead.
Mr. Weatherbee: Jughead, it’s not just Trula. In faculty meetings, you and your aversion for the female gender has been brought up by several teachers.
Mr. Weatherbee: Not to mention the long line of female students who have seen Ms. Burble the last few weeks.
Panel one: Jughead is more confident as he tries to flim-flam his way out of this predicament as Miss. Philips accidentally bumps into Jughead, causing his hat to move to his left side ever so slightly. Miss. Philips looks down apologetically at Jughead.
Jughead: Sir, women talk, and girls gossip, but I assure you that I have no problem with—
Miss. Philips: Oops. Sorry, Jughead.
Panel two: Jughead jumps out of his chair and points a finger at Miss. Philips as Miss. Philips glares at him. Mr. Weatherbee begins to try and intervene as he has a worried expression on his face. Miss. Philips is wadding the large folder and the papers it contains into one giant paper ball in her outrage.
Jughead: Yeah, you females are always sorry when it’s too late to make a difference!
Miss. Philips: What?!
Panel three: Miss. Philips is storming out of the office as Mr. Weatherbee begins to stare a hole into Jughead. Jughead is holding up five fingers as he looks away without much to say for his actions and words. Miss. Philips is throwing the giant paper wad into a near by trash bin.
Jughead: So…how about we go best three out of five?
Panel four: Jughead is biting his nails as he is worried about his fate as Mr. Weatherbee has a finger at his lips and his eyes roll to his left as he begins to think of an inventive way to discipline Jughead.
Mr. Weatherbee: I was thinking more along the lines of three to five weeks suspension…
Jughead: My parents wouldn’t let me last a week with that line of thinking!!
Panel five: Mr. Weatherbee smiles at Jughead as he reaches into his pocket and pulls out a card as Jughead looks on befuddled.
Mr. Weatherbee: …But I remembered talking with an old colleague recently who may just be able to help you with your problem.
Panel six: A look over Jughead’s shoulder as he is holding the card in his hand as it reads: Dr. Winston Preston: Teen Anger Management. Making Teens Slightly Less Hateful With A Few Kind Words! The card has a stick figure of a teenage boy with a backward ballcap looking happy.

Panel one: Jughead is eating at the kitchen table with his family as the table is stacked with food from chicken, various pies, a roast, cakes, a roast and a stack of pancakes. Naturally, Jughead has the most on his plate of all the items listed. Jellybean, in her high chair, is right next to him as she is fiddling around with mashed potatoes and peas with her spoon and fork. Mr. Jones has pancakes, toast and a glass of orange juice as his breakfast. Mrs. Jones has a cup of coffee, a pancake, and cereal. Mr. Jones is reading a newspaper that has only one article WATCH KEVIN KELLER. Mrs. Jones is talking with Jughead as she seems thrilled about her news.
Jughead: Wow. Great breakfast, Mom. Finally got enough desert for my breakfast!
Mrs. Jones: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and what better way to celebrate that the entire family is going on a cruise to—
Off-panel: WRAP! WRAP IT UP!
Panel two: Suddenly a man dressed like a director (wearing a red beret, sunglasses, a red and black sweater, and kakis) is yelling into a megaphone as the Jones family turns towards him. The walls in the kitchen begin to shift and slant as if they are being moved away from the family.
Director: THAT’S IT! CUT! STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING, YOU’RE NO LONGER GETTING PAID!!
Director: JUGHEAD HAS BEEN CANCELED!!!
Panel three: A top angle view as we can see that we are in a film studio as the walls of the kitchen are being carried away by several workers. The director is talking with Mr. and Mrs. Jones as they are both unhappy with what is going on. Jughead is looking on in shock as two crew members are carrying away the kitchen table from him. Jellybean is undoing her tied up hair as her eyebrows are furrowed and her cheeks are puffed up in rage. In the background of the studio, we can see a set for Katy Keene being set up as another director is going over what to do with Katy and her supporting actors. Also there is a snack table where Chuck, Dilton, Trula are at.
Mr. Jones: Canceled?! I actually have real daughters going into college this year! Yale! I need this job!
Mrs. Jones: Forget you! What about me! I do NOT want to go back to the soaps!
Jughead: Um…what is going on?
Panel one: Jughead turns in his chair to watch his parents storm off the remainder of the set as the entire Jones house is being moved away. In the background of the studio, a guy wearing a Cosmos, The happy martian costume is skipping along with a line of kids wear the exact same Cosmo, The Happy Martian T-shirts and wearing Cosmo hats. Jellybean is climbing off her high chair.
Mr. Jones: I have a contract!
Director: Look, bud, the show’s got the reviews, but not enough views. It has to go! The studio plans on expanding Kevin Keller to a full hour.
Panel two: Jughead is standing up as a worker is taking his chair as he looks over at Jellybean has her arms folded at her chest as she glares off into the distance as a worker is carrying her high chair over his shoulders.
Jughead: Okay, Jellybean, I think that reality has done a flip and gone wonkers on us.
Panel two: Jellybean turns and yells at Jughead as Jughead is caught by surprise.
Jellybean: I ain’t yer sister, mac! Not even pretend no more!
Panel three: Jellybean is storming off as she pushes past two interns carrying coffee, causing the drinks to spill on the ground as several angry producers look on. Jughead is scratching his head as he looks on in confusion with his hat tilted to his left.
Jellybean: So I ain’t gotta put up wit’ your methodical like acting like none no more neither!
Panel four: Everything has now been removed as Jughead is a barren area of the studio as producers, writers, and various directors and staff rush around him, like a rock in the river. A camera man has lost control of fork lift as he chasing after a panicked actor dressed like Indiana Jones.
Jughead: My life is a show? My parents aren’t my parents? Jellybean can talk—well not grammatically well--?
Jughead: WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!
Panel one: Jughead licks his lips as he looks over at the snack table as Chuck and Dilton are talking with one another as they talk with each other and don’t notice Jughead. Trula is at the table as she is drinking a glass of water.
Jughead: I think a bite or two will recharge my brain so I can figure out what’s going on!
Panel two: Jughead is skipping towards the snack table as Dilton and Chuck are continuing their conversation before they make room for Jughead.
Dilton: So I’m only getting a limited series, but I think it could get picked up for more episodes…
Chuck: Dilt, m’man, I thought the same thing with mine, but I’m just the occasional friend for Archie or—
Jughead: Pardon gents.
Panel three: Jughead looks over his shoulders as Dilton and Chuck look back at Jughead and whisper as they walk away.
Dilton whispering: Poor guy. He’s so immersed in his character…
Chuck whispering: Yeah, can you believe anyone would wear that hat outside of the studio?
Panel four: Jughead is adjusting his hat as he is about at the snack table as a depressed Trula is deep in thought.
Jughead: This is weird. Real weird—and I’m already a unique and peculiar type guy as is!
Panel one: Jughead is getting a piece of cake as he talks with Trula, who looks like she is about to cry.
Trula: It was…it was nice working with you.
Jughead: Not for me it wasn’t.
Panel two: Jughead puts his plate down as he tries to regain himself and points an accusing finger at Trula as Trula responds in bewilderment.
Jughead: Ah-ha! Now I get it! This is all your doing! You got everyone to go along and got Mr. Lodge to set this up!
Trula: What? Mr. Lodge is just a character and…
Panel three: Trula begins to pull her hair off to reveal that it’s just a wig as she really has short blond hair. Jughead looks on in complete shock and has his hands holding down his hair just so it won’t come off as he lets the piece of cake with a giant bite out of it fall to the floor.
Trula: Sigh. The producers have gone over this with your for years. Why should I bother playing amateur psychologist when I’m fired from even acting like one from now on?
Panel four: Trula hands her curly haired red wig to Jughead as Jughead takes it hesitantly in both hands as he holds it away from his chest as his eyes are wide and his face is pale. Trula is leaving as tear rolls down her right face cheek.
Trula: Look, I don’t have a previous series to go back to and no one’s talked to me and I don’t think they will…so I’m just going to leave now.
Panel five: Trula is gone as Jughead looks at the wig as he begins to regain his senses.
Panel six: Jughead drops the wig and jumps away in pure fright. In the background, Wilbur is being carried off by four security guards as he twists and protests. On the ground is a sign that reads: GIVE WILBUR ANOTHER CHANCE!!
Panel one: Jughead is eating a cupcake as he is watching a group of writers at a table writing on their laptops. One of the writers’ laptop screens has: ARCHIE LIKES BETTY. ARCHIE LIKES VERONICA. ARCHIE FALLS DOWN. REGGIE MAKES JOKE. The other writer is just playing solitaire as he looks over and gives the other writer a thumbs up.
Jughead: That does read like a typical day for Arch…
Panel two: Jughead turns around as Archie runs towards him.
Archie: Hey! I just heard the news about your show!
Jughead: Hear anything about my mental breakdown?
Panel three: Archie puts an arm around Jughead’s shoulder as he begins to lead him away from the writers as each one is now typing using only a finger at a time with one writer furious that an animated paperclip is on the screen.
Archie: Look amigo, you had a good run. Hey when you spin off from the flag ship, the boat will stay afloat for awhile, but it’ll leak eventually.
Panel four: Archie is continuing to act arrogant as Jughead turns his head as he sees Reggie wheeling a child around and skipping along as he does so. Jughead turns his head to see Reggie as he looks on incredulously.
Archie: I mean, you had to know that no matter how hard you put yourself into the character, it had no legs, right?
Jughead: I walk just fine. I just don’t like moving in general.
Panel five: Jughead is walking away as Archie begins to text on his cellphone. Reggie has stopped and is being nice as he hands the kid a piece of cake and a balloon as he reacts like he scored a game winning touchdown after seeing the child smile as he jumps up in the air. Jughead’s head is swimming as he dimly walks away.
Archie: For old times sake, I’ll see if I can get you back on my show a bit more.
Jughead: Archie is Reggie, Reggie is nice…
Jughead: It’s like throwing a twilight zone into the outer limits!
« on: November 18, 2012, 05:46:11 PM »
Panel one: Jughead, while sipping a soda drink through a straw, is walking into Dilton’s lab in the basement of Dilton’s house. There are various high tech computers around, one computer has a screen reading: YELLOW + BLUE = GREEN. The screen next to it reads: DUH. Dilton is at his lab table which has various wrenches, screws, high tech parts scattered about as what he I working on is being hidden by his slumped over body. Dilton has goggles over his glasses as a small mechanical bird is carrying a small banner that reads: WASN’T PROGRAMMED ANGRY, I DOWNLOADED IT!!
Jughead: Dilton, came over as soon as I napped and got a quick drink or two…
Jughead: You wanted to show me something?
Dilton: Indeed, Jughead. I want to show you my latest invention. It will change the world as we know it!
Panel two: Jughead shudders as he has a thought balloon of the world blowing up as a Martian in his small space craft throws his Earth voucher out the window of his ship in disgust.
Jughead: Gulp. And I’ve just adjusted myself to living in a round, glued together world!
Panel three: Dilton shows Jughead a hat that looks very much like his own, only with an extra green button that seems to have a small antenna sticking out of it. On Dilton’s work bench is a standard mouse trap, a mouse trap that is high tech, and the beginning of another mouse trap that looks to be even bigger and more high tech than the last.
Dilton: Here it is!
Jughead: Wow. Next you can reinvent the wheel. Or knit me a new sweater.
Panel one: Dilton is smiling off Jughead’s joke as he holds the hat upward and motions towards the antenna. Jughead adjusts his hat as he smirks at Dilton.
Dilton: Haw Haw.
Dilton: No, this is not an commonplace hat—
Jughead: So I’ve been told.
Panel two: Jughead looks at the hat as Dilton holds it up to his face.
Dilton: This is my Truth Hat!
Panel three: Jughead takes off his hat and puts on Dilton’s Truth Hat as Dilton proudly goes over his hat as he folds his shoulders and closes his eyes and explains his invention. The mechanical bird now has a new banner reading: THE FIRE INSIDE COMES FROM ME BEING MADE FROM A TOASTER.
Dilton: Once placed on top of the head, my Truth Hat will be able to pick up specific brain waves containing the indication of lies or fallacies.
Panel four: Dilton is proud of himself as he imagines himself as a judge as he bangs a hammer down on his work table like he were a judge. A robotic mouse is standing over the remands of the mouse traps as he raises a fist in the air in victory and glory. Jughead roll his eyes as he lies in response.
Dilton: Think about it, Jughead! Truth will prevail! The benefit in the judicial system will be swift and immediately! Presume they may, but my hat will divulge the guilty from the innocent.
Jughead: That’s great, Dilt.
Panel five: The green button on the Truth Hat lights up as the hat speaks as Jughead rolls his eyes upwards as he’s taken by surprise that the Truth Hat actually works. Dilton’s face is red as he begins to pick up various tools.
Truth Hat: Liar! Jughead thinks it’s stupid and pointless like most of your other inventions.
Dilton: By Einstein’s seldom used comb…!!
Panel six: Jughead is racing out of the basement of the Doily house as several wrenches, small robots, and hammers are zooming just over his head as he heads for the hills. The robot bird follows behind with a new banner reading: LIES ARE COAL THAT FUEL THE FURNANCE OF RAGE!!
Jughead: Y’know, to make peace with the resident mad scientist—I’ll give this hat a test drive!
Panel one: Jughead is walking along the street to the Chocklit Shoppe as he has his hands in his pockets and thinks to himself. A dog walker with a pack of dogs is being dragged across the street as Jughead is too deep in thought to pay him any mind. The mechanical bird is flying over Jughead’s head unnoticed with a banner reading: YEAH. I DON’T DO MUCH ELSE. Archie and Veronica are running up to Jughead as he doesn’t notice them.
Jughead thinking: No big deal. How hard can it be not to tell even a thimble worth of a fib?
Panel two: Archie is in front of Jughead as Veronica glares at him as she waits impatiently for Archie to ask Jughead about money he owes him as Archie sticks his hand out for Jughead to repay him. Jughead looks over at the reader as tugs at his shirt with his index finger and begins to sweat.
Archie: Jughead! Me and Ronnie had plans on going to movies, but I’m a little short on greenbacks, and you did promise to repay more for the money I lent you last week!
Panel three: Jughead waves off Archie as he smiles and puts on a front of ignorance as Veronica folds her arms and shakes her head as she’s not buying. Archie on the other hand seems to believe him.
Jughead: I’d like to help you and our richie rich gal pal here…
Veronica: Yeah right.
Jughead: But with all the heating bills going up this winter, my parents slashed me allowance to the point Honest Abe is clean shaven on my few pennies!
Panel four: Veronica and Archie both glare at Jughead as Jughead eyes upward as the Truth Hat tattles on him.
Truth Hat: Liar! Jughead has the money to repay you, but he never intended to.
Panel five: Jughead is looking up at the Truth Hat on his head as Archie is going into Jughead’s jean pockets and pulling out several dollar bills as Veronica looks on with a smirk.
Jughead: No one likes a tattle-tale!
Archie: I do!
Panel one: Jughead is nudging at the Truth Hat with his knuckles as if threatening to punch it as Archie and Veronica look at the hat as Archie sticks the money into his own pockets.
Veronica: That hat of yours may be bad fashion, but I will say it’s honest.
Archie: Yeah, Jug. What’s up with the talkative headwear?
Panel two: Jughead has calmed down as he talks with Archie and Veronica as he asks dismissive about the Truth Hat.
Jughead: Aw, Dilton created this hat to be able to tell when someone is lying and to spill the beans on them.
Archie: And that’s a bad thing?
Panel three: Jughead waves off Archie’s thought as Veronica glares at Jughead and Archie is befuddled by Jughead’s statement.
Jughead: I’ve always found that lies make people happy, and the truth makes them mad.
Panel four: Veronica turns away from Jughead as she is upset with Jughead as Archie tries to calm her down.
Veronica: I especially know all about that from all the snide remarks and wisecracks you make about me all the time!
Panel five: Nearly the same shot only with Archie now closer to Veronica and Jughead happily making a wise crack to make Veronica slightly madder as her right eye tenses.
Jughead: Hey, when you’re speaking on someone as shallow as you, the truth flows like the mighty Mississippi!
Panel six: Jughead’s eyes bulge as the Truth Hat tattles on him again. Veronica and Archie’s eyes light up in awe and surprise at what they hear.
Truth Hat: Liar! Jughead really likes you, but he pretends that he doesn’t!
Panel one: Veronica turns around all smiles and her eyes gleaming as Archie takes a step back and Jughead begins to back away as an overjoyed Veronica approaches him. People passing by look over at the teenagers.
Veronica: Really? You’ve always liked me?
Jughead: No! I’ve meant everything I’ve ever said about you!! Especially you being a snob!!
Panel two: Jughead glares up at the hat as it tattles on him again.
Truth Hat: Liar! In fact, Jughead has always been impressed that you enrolled in Riverdale High instead of a prep school or…
Jughead: We don’t need specifics!!
Panel three: Veronica is hugging Jughead as Jughead tries to vainly shove her off of him. Betty is walking up and approaching Archie who doesn’t know if he should be amused or jealous as he scratches his head and smiles slightly.
Veronica: That’s the sweetest thing you’ve ever said to me!
Jughead: I didn’t say it! Lemme Go!!
Panel four: Betty is talking with Archie as Archie continues to look on in amusement.
Betty: Hi, Archie.
Betty: Um, is Ron confused or put her eye lens in backwards or something?
Panel five: Archie is pointing at Jughead as he is running around in a circle as Veronica happily chases after her.
Veronica: …And you don’t think my eyes are cold as ice.
Jughead: I do!!
Truth Hat: Liar! Jughead thinks your eyes are fine.

Panel one: The setting is Pickens Park. Trula Twyst is standing by a hot dog cart as the hot dog cart bender is giving some six year old kid a two foot long hot dog as he holds out both arms to grab it. Trula is looking at her watch as she waits patiently.
Trula Twyst: It is just past one, the wind is carrying the smell of hot dogs in a northwestern degree at 2 mph…
Panel two: Trula sees Jughead walking along a path with Archie as Jughead blissfully is sniffing the air. Trula looks on as everything is happening as she summerized. The small boy is holding the hot dog up and is taking it down by giant bites as the hot dog tender looks on in awe.
Trula Twyst: Do I know that nose.
Panel three: Jughead notices Trula as Trula is confidently walking towards him and Archie. Jughead is dismayed while Archie jokes with Jughead.
Archie: Looks like you’re Trula’s tracking device is at full capacity, huh, Jughead?
Panel four: Jughead zooms past Trula, taking her by surprise as she raises both eyebrows as her hair is blown back. Jughead leaves a trail of dust behind him as Archie jumps back.
Jughead: Let’s see if her tracking device is any match for my warp drive!!
Panel one: Trula looks on in awe with Archie as they watch Jughead streak across the park, zooming past several people, leaping over people having a picnic while grabbing a chicken drumstick from someone and circling around several trees before continuing to run away.
Archie: He’s first at the lunch line for a reason.
Panel two: Trula begins to run after Jughead as Archie has turned his attention to two attractive female joggers who wave at him.
Trula: If he thinks he can run away from me like that, he’s got another thing coming!
Panel three: Jughead is in heavily forested area as he looks around nervously.
Jughead: I think I got a good head start on her…but I’ve seen locations like this in horror movies that never bode well for the innocent.
Panel four: Jughead turns his head in surprise as he hears Trula’s voice.
Trula off-panel: Y-you (huff puff) just…wait…!
Panel five: A completely exhausted and fatigued weakly runs towards Jughead. Her face is red cheeked and beading with sweat, she is breathing heavily, and her hair is a mess. Jughead looks on as he happily notes the situation.
Trula: …there…! Right (huuufff huff) there…!!!
Panel one: Jughead has his chest pushed out as he looks on happily as Trula Twyst is bent over in front of him trying to catch her breath after running as fast as she could after Jughead.
Jughead: Trula, why it doth seem that you are a wee bit out of shape.
Panel two: Trula glares up at Jughead as she is sucking in air as Jughead pats her on her back as he soaks in the situation and the advantage he has over Trula.
Jughead: Hey! Don’t give me that look! All criminal masterminds have henchmen do their leg work for a reason!
Panel three: Jughead zooms away from Trula as he mockingly motions for her to follow. Trula’s hair is kicked up by the back draft of Jughead’s running speed.
Jughead: Tell you what, I’ll wait for you at the other end of the park!
Panel four: Trula begins to jog as she is now carrying her high heel shoes in one hand and is taking breaths in and out as she vainly tries to catch up with Jughead. Archie and the female joggers are running past Trula. Archie is in between the two and he is skipping along happily
Trula : I hope he trips over a tortoise and a hare mistakes his nose for a carrot!!
Panel one: Jughead is drinking a soda in a Styrofoam cup as he is lying on a park bench happily enjoying the day as a penguin and a line of ducks walk past him. By the bench is a litter bin. The bin is filled with Styrofoam cups, supplied by Jughead.
Jughead: Summersault cola! Refreshing energy boost that makes my taste buds go topsy turvy!
Panel two: Jughead looks down the path as Trula looks like she is about to collapse as she vainly keeps running to catch up with Jughead. Jughead is throwing the cup away in the nearby trash bin.
Jughead: I’d almost admire her determination if I didn’t detest the rest of her.
Panel three: Jughead looks up as Trula’s arms hang loosely and she is about to give way it seems as beads of sweat are pouring from her face.
Trula: weezzz weezzz
Jughead: What, is that some sort of new language?
Panel four: Jughead sits up and gives Trula room to sit on the bench. Trula practically collapse on the bench as she has her head tilted just over the bench and her arms stretched along the top.
Jughead: Take a seat. You’ve earned it.
Trula: huff huff huff puff!
Panel one: Jughead is stretching his legs as Trula weakly looks over at him as she is still trying to get her wind back and cool off.
Jughead: You’re brain is a little too busy telling your lungs to breath in and out fresh air, so I’ll just run things down for you:
Panel two: Jughead begins to run in place as Trula snarls at him.
Jughead: I’m the hare, you’re the tortoise. And this little hare can eat and sleep all he wants because we’re not racing. We’re playing keep away.
Panel three: Jughead points at Trula as Trula turns away, not liking that what Jughead is saying is true.
Jughead: Go ahead and plan where I’ll be and wait. For every one step of yours, I’m taking twenty!
Trula: Hmph. You’re mistaking cowardice for intelligence.
Panel four: Jughead turns his head to his right to see Ethel waving and blowing kisses at him as she is running at him from a good distance away.
Panel five: Jughead is zooming off again as Trula jumps off the bench as Ethel is zooming down the hill.
Jughead: And she actually can match me step for step!
Trula: Get back here!! We’re not finished, Forsythe Pendleton Jones the third!!
Panel one: Trula looks towards Ethel as Ethel is running straight at Trula at full steam ahead.
Trula: …I now sympathize with roadkill.
Panel two: Trula bends his waist and shields herself with her arms as she prepares to get run down. Ethel stops on her heels just inches from Trula.
Ethel: Oh. Hi, Trula!
Panel three: Trula straightens up and brushes herself off as Ethel kindly talks with her. In the sky the penguin, now using a hand glider, is flying in the lead of a V formation with the ducks from earlier
Ethel: A great day in the park, huh? Bright shiny day and Jughead Jones playing hard to get.
Trula: Oh, it’s been just wonderful, Ethel.
Panel four: Trula begins to chase after Jughead again as Ethel cups her chin as she wonders what is going on.
Trula: Now, if you’ll pardon me, I’m going to catch Juggers and break his kneecaps for him!

Panel one: Archie is talking with Betty as they are walking home with their backpacks over their shoulders at around four o’clock. They are on a sidewalk along a very vacant area of Riverdale. Reggie is in the background scheming as he is looking back at a house on a hill. The house at the top of the hill seems to have been abandoned and run down; the land is barren with small patches of dead grass and a few trees that have lost all their leaves that add to the eerie atmosphere of the house. At the end of the hill is badly rusted, unhinged gate.
Betty: So, Archie, you think you can come to help out with the Halloween Fest at Riverdale High tonight?
Archie: Sorry, Betty, but Veronica asked me to go to her dad’s Halloween party. It’s the best time of the year for me, since Mr. Lodge will pretend I’m someone else for the night.
Archie: Say, what about Jughead?
Panel two: Betty is waving goodbye to Archie as Archie waves back. Inside of a front section on Betty’s backpack, her cellphone begins to ring as the ring tone is “Sugar, Sugar”
Betty: I already asked him. Turns out he’s going to be taking a few of his neighborhood kids trick-or-treating this year.
Archie: Really? I need to go home and tell Mom to go buy five more bags of candy!
Betty: Have her spread the word to my mom! I still have to go see Farmer McDaniels about the miniature pumpkins he’s willing to donate for tonight!
Backpack: sugar, sugar….!
Panel three: Archie is smiling as he watches Betty walk along as she is talking on her cellphone. A wind blows several dead leaves as they scatter across the sidewalk.
Betty: Not counting the cute guys.!
Archie: It’s not Christmas, but Halloween has a way of making sure everyone has a fun time.
Panel four: A shot over Archie’s shoulder as he looks across the street to see Reggie looking at the haunted house on the hill and rubbing his hands together as he schemes.
Archie: Then again, Reggie Mantle’s fun is usually someone else’s displeasure!
Reggie: Reggie: Now that’s a thought…
Panel one: Archie is walking home as he sees Veronica in a Cadillac car beginning to pull out the of Cooper driveway. She is just under a tree as dead leaves begin to fall into the backseat leaf by leaf.
Veronica: Hello, Archikins!
Panel two: Archie walks up to Veronica as Veronica flips her hair. Even more leaves are beginning to fall into the Cadillac as it seems to be piling up. Archie has small hearts over his eyes as he is in his love glaze. In the passenger side is five bags with the name COSTLY COSTUMES as the label and a red and black stripe scarf lying next to the bags.
Archie: What are you doing here, Gorgeous? Shouldn’t you be getting ready for the party?
Veronica: I’ve already got my costume ready, but I needed to borrow something of Betty’s to complete the ensemble
Panel three: Archie is happily picturing Veronica dressed as Cleopatra kissing him dressed as a Pharaoh. Veronica smiles mischievously as she pats her bag. The leaves keep falling from the tree and her backseat now has a giant pile of leaves that is nearly overflowing.
Veronica: Archie, I should tell you, that I’m going to be wearing a—different type of costume.
Archie: Why reroute the Nile?
Panel four: Veronica is zooming off as the leaves stream out of her car and Archie takes the full blast of them as he nearly falls over as he shields his head with his arms and twists his body as if he were trying to protect himself while in a sandstorm.
Veronica: Because it only flows in one direction, that’s why!
Panel one: Archie shaking his entire body as he tries to get all the orange, red, and brown fall leaves off of him and his backpack. Several are stuck in his hair forming a hat almost. He is knee deep in a leaf pile as he raises his right foot out of the pile; his shoe laces are now untied.
Archie: Wow! I can’t wait for that party!
Panel two: Archie is doing a bit of a two step as he walks up his drive way, as he almost trips on his shoe strings that have become untied.
Archie: Just me and the most beautiful girl that’s going to be there dancing and—
Panel three: Archie is bending over to tie his shoes as he talks with himself and seems concerned about what Reggie is up to.
Archie: But still…
Archie: Last time I saw Reggie rub his hands like that, Jughead had to get his stomach pumped because of scented wax fruit!
Panel four: Archie is standing up as he has his eyes closed, has his arms spread to his side as he motions away with his hands as if he’s trying to compel his curiosity to go away.
Archie: No! No! No!
Archie: Archie Andrews, you are going to battle your curiosity and you are not going to get caught up in whatever Reggie is going to do tonight! You got that?!
Panel five: It is a full moon night as Reggie, carrying a large old faded out Halloween bag, is walking down from the hill where the haunted house rests as Archie jumps out of nowhere in front of Reggie and points an accusing finger at him. Reggie is startled as he nearly drops the large candy bag with overflowing sweets.
Caption: Later that night/ Curiosity 1, Archie’s common sense 0.
Archie: AHA! I caught you in the act!
Panel one: Archie is scolding Reggie while standing in Reggie’s way as Reggie motions for him to move.
Reggie: Caught me what? Taking candy kids left in front of a stupid old house that no one lives in besides a fictional ghost boy who’s too lazy to get out of his grave and get his own candy?!
Archie: How do you know he doesn’t get out of his grave!?
Panel two: Reggie is laughing at Archie as Archie blushes.
Reggie: HAAA HAAA HAA!!! YOU ACTUALLY THINK THERE’S A GHOST?! AAAHHHAAA!!! THAT’S RICH LIKE I AM!!
Panel three: Archie is sticking his chest out as he tries to stand up to Reggie and keep face. Reggie motions back towards the house.
Archie: How do you know there isn’t, Reggie!?
Reggie: Well, there’s one way to find out, Freckles. Why don’t you spend Halloween Night in the old Jeter house?
Panel four: Archie is getting angry and going red face as he glares over at Reggie who is just behind him with the candy bag on the street and is acting like a chicken plucking up candy like a chicken would seeds. A kid dressed as a bird walks along with his parent as he tilts his head in confusion.
Archie: That’s stupid! I don’t want to waste time in an old house! Besides, I promised Veronica that---
Reggie: BAWK! BAWK BAWK!
Archie: Oh yeah, Chicken Little?! Well, I’ll show you--!!
Panel five: A terrified Archie is in the living room of the haunted home as everything is covered in dust and cobwebs and everything is eerie looking. Wallpaper is faded and peeling of the wall. The wooden floor has several hole and various spiders and rodents are about. A breeze blows through a broken window and sways the tattered curtains about. Over right corner of the panel is a cobweb that has writing: I WISH THERE WAS A PIG TO READ THIS!
Caption: A few seconds later/ Reggie 1 Archie -18.
Archie: …I’ll show you the dumbest human being in all of Riverdale.
Panel one: Archie is closing his eyes as he is trying to calm himself down. As he walks, he is about to walk right into a giant spider web that could cover him whole. On the massive cobweb is writing above it reading: I SPENT A LOT OF TIME ON THIS.
Archie: Okay, Arch, okay…
Archie: You just spend a few hours in this nice, quant house and then you can go about the rest of your life.
Panel two: Archie walks into the giant cobweb as he begins to twist about, only making it worse. A spider on a spider web above has written on a new cobweb hanging from the ceiling: I WORKED MY BUTT OFF TO MAKE THAT!! The spider seems to be shaking all of its legs at Archie in anger.
Archie: It’s in my hair!!
Panel three: Archie is taking a step as the board under him begins to tilt up slightly. Archie is trying to get the spider web out of his face as he continues to thrash about blindly.
Archie: It’s in my eyes! It’s up my nose---!
Archie: Yuck---!! It’s in my mouth…!!
Panel four: The board rises up and smacks Archie right across the face as his eyes bulge out from pain.
Panel five: Archie falls on his back with his arms full extended and his legs sticking straight up in the air as he’s still covered in the cobweb. Archie has a red print across his face where the loose board smacked him.
Archie: While I’m thinking of it, I’ll call Veronica and tell her I won’t be making her party…

Panel one: Reggie, Betty, and Archie are walking home from school as they pass by an open gate leading to a haunted house on a hill as several elementary kids are racing up the hill with a piece of candy each. The landscape around the house is barren with thin branchy trees that make it seem something you’d see in a horror movie. Reggie and Archie are wearing their Riverdale jackets and Betty is wearing a typical green jacket with a hood. A swirling wind blows several brown and red leaves at the feet of the gang. One elementary girl is motioning for the other kids to go to the house. Archie and Betty smile at the kids while Reggie rolls his eyes.
Girl: C’mon, let’s hurry and give Johnny his candy!
Betty: Aw, isn’t that cute?
Reggie: Are you telling me kids are still doing that?
Panel two: Archie is talking with Reggie as Reggie waves him off in disgust.
Archie: Aw, lay off, Reg. It’s a Riverdale tradition.
Reggie: Yeah, kids are traditionally wasting time and money when they leave a piece of candy at that broken down hovel.
Panel three: Betty points to the haunted house as Reggie motions for Betty to stop as Archie seems content to listen as he obviously likes the story.
Betty: There’s nothing wrong with being part of a Halloween tradition. In fact at the Halloween Fest tonight, I plan on telling the story of Little Johnny Jeter…
Panel one: A black and white panel of a small boy wearing a typical ghost sheet style costume and waving a large empty trick-or-treat bag while he happily skips out of his home—the haunted house only not in ruins like it is now.
Caption: Little Johnny Jeter loved Halloween of all days. He’d wear the same costume each and every year…
Panel two: A black and white panel still as Little Johnny Jeter has a full trick-or-treat bag that is nearly as big as him in both of his arms as he happily skips back inside his home.
Caption: …And every year little Johnny would collect the most candy out of all the children in Riverdale.
Panel three: A black and white shot of a ghost costume lying on the a wooden floor where it looks like the ghost is sad by the way it’s crumpled and Johnny’s empty Halloween bag lying right next to it .
Caption: One Halloween, Little Johnny Jeter got sick and never got better—
Panel four: Back to the present. A shot of children from earlier putting candy in Johnny’s Halloween bag, which is now old and faded, just outside the front door of the haunted house. Archie and the rest of the gang are in the background as Betty is pointing towards them.
Betty: So all the children in Riverdale left a piece of candy for him.
Betty: Now, as the legend goes, if you don’t leave one piece of candy at the door of Little Johnny, his ghost will come to your house and trick-or-treat!
Panel one: Reggie is feigning being afraid as he hides behind a not amused Archie. Betty has her hands at her hips as she glares at Reggie.
Reggie: Yikes! Whatever shall I do when the little sickly ghost boy interrupts my monster movie marathon when he comes for his candy--!!
Panel two: Reggie motions at the house as the Elementary kids are coming back down the hill and out the gate. The Elementary girl from before glares at Reggie.
Reggie: Look, there was never a Johnny Jeter. It’s just some stupid story that even stupider kids believe!
Panel three: The kids are leaving in a huff as the girl is sticking her tongue out at Reggie. Archie is talking with Reggie as Betty nods in agreement with the girl’s response towards Reggie.
Archie: If you live in a house made of glass, you shouldn’t throw rocks.
Reggie: Yeah, I know. You do it in someone else’s house.
Panel four: Archie and Betty leave Reggie as Reggie glares at them.
Archie: Make with the jokes, but when you were a kid, you were right with everyone else believing in that ghost story and walking up that hill just the same.
Panel one: Reggie watches as Betty and Archie part ways and wave goodbye to one another. Reggie has hands cupped over his mouth as he shouts at them.
Reggie: Yeah, well…at least I stopped believing in ghosts, the toothfairy, and Santa Claus when I got older!
Panel two: Reggie looks over his shoulder; his eyes are rolled to his left as he is thinking.
Reggie: If I felt like it, I’d go up that stupid hill tonight and take the candy to prove the superstitious yahoos wrong…
Panel three: Reggie is rubbing his hands together as he is planning to carry out his thought as he smirks to himself and his eyes turn shifty and beady. Behind him the wind is blowing more heavily as the gate begins to swing wildly and several more dead leaves are blown in the air. Behind Reggie we can see that Archie is glaring at Reggie suspiciously.
Reggie: Now that’s a thought…
Panel one: Reggie is walking up the hill on Halloween night as he is approaching the house and the large Halloween bag filled with candy that is left on the door step.
Reggie: Wow! And I thought we were in a recession! Poor people can complain and yet leave out this much candy to waste!
Panel two: Reggie smirks as he bends down to grab the Halloween bag as he chuckles to himself.
Reggie: Or should I have said, “would have been wasted”?
Panel three: Reggie turns to leave as he is startled by a kid wearing an old ghost costume looking up at him. The boy is wearing an old dirty sheet style ghost costume with a black marker used for the eyes and mouth and looks to be around seven or eight.
Reggie: Yipe! Where’d you come from?
Panel four: A shot of behind the ghost boy as Reggie happily displays the Halloween bag. The ghost boy is looking at the Halloween bag and reaching up for it.
Reggie: Oh wait. I get it! You’re supposed to be “Little Johnny Jeter”.
Reggie: Well, JJ, Reggie Mantle here is going to take this big bag full of treats home to check your candy to see if it’s safe!
Panel five: Reggie begins to run down the hill as the ghost boy tilts his head to his right and looks on from on top of the hill.
Reggie: You just come over to my house and come and get it back!
Reggie: HA HA HA!

Panel one: Veronica is in a costume shop section of a mall called COSTLY COSTUMES as she is holding up an Egyptian princess costume. Behind her is a pile of various types of princess costumes that have not met Veronica’s approval. Two teen girls climb over the stack as they continue on their way. Veronica has her cellphone balanced on her right shoulder as she talks to Betty.
Veronica: Bettykins, it’s a shame you can’t go to The Lodge Halloween Party. With all of daddy’s business friends and their family gathering, it’s normally very boring for me.
Cellphone: Not counting the cute guys!
Veronica: When you’re as beautiful as myself, you don’t bother counting.
Panel two: Veronica is listening to the phone as she eyes her Cleopatra costume and seems to be having second doubts about it. One of the teen girls has sunk into the pile of costumes as the other one frantically runs away.
Cellphone: I really am sorry, Ronnie, but it is my idea and a few teachers and some of the gang are going to be there to help me.
Cellphone: But I know you’ll look good as every in your Cleopatra costume. Catch up with you later.
Panel three: Veronica drops the costume to the ground as she begins to think and puts her cellphone away. Two teen boys are helping the teen girl out of the costume pile as she is now wearing a Snow White looking costume.
Veronica: Come to think, I always do dress up like Cleopatra or a princess. It might be costumes for Halloween, but it is still a fashion rut.
Panel one: Veronica is looking over at a teenage girl who is buying a Bride of Frankenstein costume complete with make-up, bolts, and the giant Marge Simpson type hair wig.
Veronica: It must be nice to just let all common fashion sense go and just parade out as something hideous once in a while.
Panel two: Veronica’s eyes light up and she smiles ear-to-ear as she raises her index finger to signal a revelation.
Veronica: Say! Why can’t I!? I mean, it is Halloween! Being ghastly and gruesome is all the rage tonight!
Panel three: Veronica slams her fist into her open palm as she happily exclaims to herself. A girl dressed like a witch is looking at a display case of brooms as she pulls out the handle to see the straw ends.
Veronica: I’ll do it! For once, Veronica Lodge will be hideous!
Panel four: Veronica begins to flip through a display of eye balls, hockey masks, and werewolf gloves. The teenager dressed like a witch looks surprised when she pulls out a mop.
Veronica: It will be a true challenge! It’s not hard to amplify perfection, but it takes true skill to make the most beautiful girl in Riverdale into the most gruesome!
Veronica: I need to call Betty back and see if I can borrow that scarf of hers…!!
Panel one: Veronica has her costume and Halloween accessories in a single costume bag with the name: COSTLY COSTUMES as she is walking out of the shop and into the rest of the Riverdale Mall. Behind Veronica we can see the teenager dressed like a witch decides to just go with the witch costume and the mop as the cashier examines the mop and doesn’t understand why.
Veronica: I can’t wait to see Archikins face when he arrives and sees me so hideous.
Panel two: Veronica is talking as a very tall man in his late forties with a very short, round man around the same age and carrying two bags of costumes bumps into her as she was talking to herself.
Veronica: Hm. It might just make Archie appreciate me a bit more when he sees the worst case scenario and—
Panel three: Veronica is yelling to the two men as the fat one seems sorry, but the tall one isn’t at all. The short man is trying to apologize, but tall man is pulling him away. The teenage girl dressed like Snow White is being escorted by the two teenage boys while her friend looks on enviously.
Veronica: Hey! Watch where I’m standing!!
Fat man: Sorry!
Tall man: No we’re not!!
Panel four: The tall man looks back and shakes a fist at Veronica as Veronica responds in kind as everyone looks on. The fat man tries to pull his friend away to avoid unwanted attention. In the background next to Veronica, a crowd of people have gathered to watch the disturbance.
Tall Man: You stupid brat! You act like you own the mall!!
Veronica: I might as well! I practically buy everything in it!!
Panel five: The two men are driving away in a beat up brow car that has the bumper half off, the rearview mirror hanging on barely, and the windshield is slightly cracked and the passenger side of the car is duct taped on several areas.
Wittely: Marvin, you shouldn’t get upset like that. You’re blood pressure…
Marvin: Shaddup, Wittely!!
Panel one: Marvin turns to Wittely and argues against his point as Wittely shrugs his shoulders as he drives. Marvin has the two costume bags in his lap. We can see various fast food bags, wrappers, and fast food cups littering the car. Marvin is motioning with his hands like he is grabbing onto something and pulling it towards him.
Marvin: Anyway, one little annoyance won’t ruin my plans. Once we—The Sure-Handed Robbers—steal from all those rich folks at the Lodge shindig!
Wittely: I thought we we’re called The Cowardly Robbers now?
Panel two: Marvin is talking as all around him is a flashback of when the two, dressed like robbers, have passed out from fright after climbing in a window after some kid wearing a monster costume looks over them in confusion as the parents call the police. Inside the house are various Halloween decorations. By the two unconscious robbers are a jewelry box and a burglar bag filled with various items like a DVD player and a computer.
Marvin: We were the best. No home, no matter the income or security, was safe from us—
Marvin: --Until we broke into that stupid house on Halloween and some kid caught us off guard!
Panel three: Wittely is shaking as Marvin elbows him, causing the car to veer slightly.
Wittely: What a scary little monster! I was glad to be in jail so it couldn’t get me!
Panel four: Marvin smirks as he slowly begins to look inside the costume bags as he goes back to enjoying his evil plan.
Marvin: Don’t worry. With this job we’ll be able to go buy us a beach on Hawaii where Halloween is outlawed.
Marvin: With these caterer get ups you got we—
Panel five: A shot of the car driving through the streets of Riverdale and outside the Chocklit Shoppe as Raj and Sandi turn their heads to the car as they hear Marvin yelling.
Marvin: Black masks? !!Striped shirts!! These are burglar costumes!!!
Wittely: Couldn’t we just tell them we’re the caterers dressed up for Halloween…?
Panel one: Veronica is in her room as she has five costume bags and Betty’s scarf on her bed. She also has a picture of monsters that look like Quasimodo, Jason Vorhees, Freddy Krueger. There is also a picture of Jughead.
Veronica: There. I have everything gathered, plus I have the proper inspiration.
Panel two: Veronica holds up the picture of Jughead as she shivers uncontrollably.
Panel three: Mr. Lodge sticks his head in Veronica’s room to see what she’s up to. Mr. Lodge is wearing a golden crown.
Mr. Lodge: Veronica, your mother tells me you plan on a different type of costume…?
Veronica: Yes, Daddykins. I thought I might just try some dreadful monster costume this year for a change.
Mr. Lodge: I see…
Panel four: Mr. Lodge begins to close the door back as Veronica holds out Betty’s scarf and twists here face in disgust.
Mr. Lodge: Well, the party has started for an hour now. Please hurry or you’ll miss it.
Veronica: Yuck. I might be too afraid to show my face.
Panel five: Mr. Lodge can now be seen dressed like a king as he walks down the hall. As he goes by, an open window has a grappling hook attached to it as he doesn’t seem to notice as the rope is being stretched.
Mr. Lodge: Heh. She’s making a decent attempt at it; I’ll give my little princess that.
Mr. Lodge: I wonder where she acquired such a horrendous scarf…?

Panel one: Betty Cooper, wearing a Little Red Riding Hood costume, is talking on her cellphone as she is preparing to go into the Riverdale gymnasium as several kids in costumes (one dressed like a power ranger, a princess, and an Olympic gold medalist with way too many medals on his neck) run past her. On the double doors of the gymnasium are cut ups of a black cat and a green ghost. Above the door is a banner, in orange and black writing: RIVERDALE HIGH HALLOWEEN FEST
Betty: Yeah, Ronnie, sure, you can borrow my scarf—but it’s not coud enough to—oh, it’s part of your costume…?
Betty: Well, sure. Just go over to my house and pick it up.
Panel two: Betty is beginning to go inside as she is about finished with her call. As she is about to enter, a ghost boy, wearing a dirty sheet with eyes and mouth made out of a black marker, walks into the room as he has his arm over his eyes as if he here looking for someone. Betty has a thought balloon of Veronica in her Cleopatra costume showing off the red and black striped scarf as it obviously doesn’t belong.
Betty: Well, I guess Veronica could make it work…
Panel three: A big panel of all the gym as we can see several stations have been set up with various kids in costumes and their parents walking around or staying at a station. One station (The Jack-o-Lantern carving station) is two tables with Moose and Midge, dressed as Tarzan and Jane, with several small pumpkins stacked behind them with several kids dressed like farmers and scarecrows wheeling another pile of small pumpkins in a wagon right behind them. They already have a line with Midge getting the most and Moose only having the ghost boy as they wait for everyone to begin. Another section is Nancy, dressed like a pop singer, at a station with several backgrounds (The inside of the haunted house, a graveyard, and a darkened sky with an orange moon shaped like a jack-o-latern.) hung up and she has a canvas and her water colors as she begins to paint. A small girl dressed like a witch is getting drawn with the night background as several kids (dressed like a dog, the phantom of the opera, and a zombie) wait on. A snack table is prepared with Miss Beazley dressed like a sailor. The items on the table appear to be black apples, jell-o with plastic eyes in it, orange and black cupcakes with bat and pumpkin figures on various individual cupcakes, and orange punch. A group of kids dressed like the café staff at Jughead’s Diner look as the kid dressed like Mr. Bones look at his jell-o with the eyes in disgust. Ms Grundy and Ms. Petra Lauriette (dressed like Gandalf the white and a witch wearing black garb and a black pointy hat) look on.
Betty: But right now, I’ve gotta help keep the Riverdale High Halloween Fest from getting out of control!!
Panel one: Betty is walking over to Ms. Grundy and Ms. Lauriette as Ms. Grundy waves her staff to signal hello. Ms. Lauriette tips her glasses as she looks back at a group of boys who have small hearts over their eyes. The three boys are dressed like the three stooges. Behind them are three girls dressed like princesses as they glare at them.
Betty: Wow! I can’t believe how well we’re doing! We have more kids in here then on the streets.
Panel two: Ms. Grundy is talking with Betty as Ms. Lauriette walks towards them as she chuckles to herself as she sees the three princesses grab their respective stooge kid by the ear and lead him away as the stooge kids each jump on one leg as they are pulled along.
Ms. Grundy: This was a great idea you had, Betty. Having a safe place for parents to take their kids on Halloween and to teach them important Halloween safety tips in a safe, fun environment.
Betty: I couldn’t have done it without my friends and you and Ms. Lauriette agreeing to sponsor the event!
Panel three: Ms. Lauriette is walking up to Betty and strikes a pose as she recites her quote as Ms. Grundy and Betty look on. A parent with two kids dressed like rabbits hop along.
Ms. Lauriette: “The witches fly across the sky, The owls go, ‘Who? Who? Who?’ The black cats yowl And green ghosts howl, "Scary Halloween to you!"
Panel four: Ms. Lauriette tips her hat as Ms. Grundy strokes her fake, long beard as Betty begins to walk around the gymnasium and heads for the pumpkin carving table as Moose and Midge begin to carve jack-o-lantern for kids. Moose is concentrating hard as Midge is much more lax in her approach.
Ms. Lauriette: So why can’t a teacher or two haunt the night a bit?
Ms. Grundy: And it’s nice to look at future students of mine. You just go around and help us keep everything going smoothly.
Betty: Will do!
Panel one: Midge is talking to her long line of kids as she begins to work on her jack-o-lantern as Moose is hard at work for the ghost boy who tilts his head as he watches.
Midge: …And remember when you do this at home to have a parent or adult help and to cut away from yourself.
Betty: Midge, Moose! How is the Lil’ Jack-o-lantern carving going?
Panel two: Midge turns the jack-o-lantern around to the kid as it looks horrible with the nose and eyes too close together. Moose also turns his around as the ghost boy waves his arms in the air happily as his jack—o-lantern as it is done perfectly.
Moose: Duh, hiya Betty.
Midge: Hi, Betty. Everything’s going well.
Midge: Farmer McDaniels donating these small pumpkins and Moosie and me teaching the kids how to carve a jack-o-lantern safely was a really good idea.
Panel three: The ghost boy happily skips along with his jack-o-lantern as the kids in Midge’s line look at the jack-o-lantern Moose made. Moose and Midge turn to talk to Betty as Betty shrugs her shoulders.
Moose: Say, Betty. Where’s Arch?
Betty: Sigh. He already promised Veronica to be her date for the Lodge Halloween Party…
Panel four: Betty is walking off as Moose waves bye. Midge looks straight ahead and is shocked to see nothing in front of her as the kids have all left.
Betty: …But Reggie challenged him to stay in the old Jeter house for a few hours.
Moose: That’s not too bright with dat ghost livin’ there.
Panel five: A shot over Betty’s shoulder as she waves her arm as she shrugs and tilts her head to her left shoulder. We can see that all the kids have gone to Moose as Midge stands up and glares at Moose. Moose holds up Midge’s jack-o-lantern and gives it a thumbs up to try and calm her down. Several kids in line give it a thumbs down. The ghost boy is following Betty with his jack-o-lantern as Betty hasn’t noticed.
Betty: There will be a ghost living there if he’s still there when Veronica hunts him down!
Betty: You two keep up the good work!
Panel one: Betty is walking over to Nancy as Nancy is sitting on a stool as she’s doing a water color drawing of a kid as a zombie with the graveyard background. The ghost boy is at Betty’s side as he looks at his costume and seems to be comparing it to the zombie boy’s.
Betty: Wow. This was a great idea you came up with, Nancy!
Panel two: Nancy is turning to talk with Betty as she puts the finishing touches on the zombie boy’s picture as she’s done the picture to be very cartoony.
Nancy: Thanks, Betts, but I can’t take all the credit. Chuck was telling me how he was planning to do caricatures for trick-or-treaters tonight…
Betty: ...And you thought you‘d borrow the idea?
Panel three: Nancy rips the page off her canvas and gives it to the zombie boy as his parents, both dressed like zombies, look on and wait for him.
Nancy: Of course.
Panel four: A group of kids dressed like Scooby Doo and the gang are at the haunted house background. A boy dressed as a dog with black make-up over his nose is Scooby. The zombie family walk away all like zombies as the ghost boy looks on. Betty is leaving Nancy as Nancy is mixing colors and has three brushes in her mouth as she starts drawing.
Betty: Just tell me if you run out of colors. Mr. Svenson said the art class has saved up more than enough over the years.
Nancy: Zoinks and jinkies!
Panel one: Betty is walking along as she turns her head to see that the ghost boy is following her. The ghost boy has one arm holding the jack-o-lantern as he waves hello with his free hand. Betty plays along as she pretends to be afraid. In the background, a vampire boy with a plastic bat on a stick is chasing a girl dressed like a baseball player.
Betty: Yikes, It looks like I’m being followed by a g-g-ghost!
Panel two: Betty kneels down and pats the ghost boy on the head. The ghost boy motions like a referee would a missed field goal as he shows he doesn’t mean Betty any harm.
Betty: Oh, but I shouldn’t be afraid of a cute ghost like you?
Panel three: Betty is talking with the ghost boy as the ghost boy seems overjoyed with the idea. Behind Betty, the girl dressed like a baseball player now has a baseball bat and is chasing after the vampire boy.
Betty: You don’t look like you’ve tricked or treated yet.
Betty: Say, my friend Veronica Lodge and her family always gives out the most and best treats. She’s just on the other side of Riverdale, the biggest house seen from outer space!
Panel four: Betty stands up to look for the ghost kid’s parents.
Betty: Now, where are your parents so I can give them—
Panel five: Betty turns around to see that the ghost boy has vanished
Betty: What, could he actually be a…? Was he a…?
Panel six: Betty waves off the notion. In the background the vampire boy and baseball girl are holding hands with their bat on a stick and baseball back over their left shoulder. The vampire boy has a lump on his head.
Betty: You’ve got to lay off the horror flicks and candy corn, Betty Cooper!!

Panel one: Mrs. Jones is in bed sick as she has a box of handkerchiefs, some wadded up and used on the bed, as she talks with Jughead, who is dressed like Zorro is halfway seen from the doorway as he reaches back to pick something up off the ground. On a nearby dresser is a dehumidifier pointed directly at Mrs. Jones.
Mrs. Jones: Snff Snff. Thank you, Jughead for taking Jellybean and a few of neighborhood kids trick or treating this year
Jughead: Not a problem. Archie and the rest of the gang are off doing their own thing tonight…
Panel two: Jughead is holding up Jellybean as she is dressed to look like a boy as she is wearing a baseball cap, a red shirt and overalls and has a mustache on as Jughead happily showcases Jellybean to Mrs. Jones.
Jughead: …And I can’t say no to going around and getting free candy with my “little brother”.
Panel three: Mrs. Jones sits up in bed as she frowns and blows her nose at the same time. Jughead hugs Jellybean as he defends her costume. Jellybean is stroking her mustache as she laughs.
Mrs. Jones: Do you have to dress Jellybean like a boy every Halloween night?
Jughead: Have I ever brought up how you completely did the opposite of what I wanted during a single one of Jellybean’s birthdays?
Panel one: Jughead is carrying Jellybean as Jellybean is carrying a small Halloween bag. Jughead is talking with her as she listens intently.
Jughead: Jellybean, Halloween is a very good time for us Joneses. We get to go out and ask for all the free candy we could want without anyone accusing us of being mooches.
Jughead: Well, unless we’re dressed like bums…
Panel two: Jughead is walking into the living room as three kids in costume are waiting for him. One is a boy dressed like biker tiger and showing off a rubber samurai sword, another is a girl wearing pizza costume with pizza make-up on her exposed face, and other is a robot made out of grey spray painted cardboard.
Tiger Biker boy: Grrr! I’m a Nuclear Samurai Tiger Biker, and I’m going to eat you, pizza!
Pizza Girl: Yipe! Someone help me!
Robot Boy: Beep Beep. I’ll save you living baked dough female.
Panel three: Jughead is yelling attention as if her were a sergeant.
Jughead: Troops! Ten-hut!
Panel four: The kids all stand before Jughead in attention as they hold their Halloween bags. Jellybean, still being held by Jughead, also salutes Jughead. Jughead puts a finger on his nose as he nods approvingly at how well his “troops” are disciplined. Jughead is looking over a the reader with a smile and look that says, “I’ve got this.”
Kids: Yes, sir! Big Kid Jughead Sir!
Panel one: Jughead is pacing back and forth as the kids look up at him wide-eyed as they become inspired.
Jughead: Troops, I know that this is the first trick-or-treating away from our street, but do not fret. I am a veteran of Halloween after serving many terms.
Jughead: Sometimes more than one term in a year.
Panel two: Jughead is looking down at the kids as he feigns sternness.
Jughead: With me at command, I will guide you to the best houses. I will fill your candy bags full of sugary treats. I will probably eat a great number of those treats….
Jughead: Now what are the rules we discussed earlier?
Panel three: The Robot Boy is acting like he is scanning the room.
Robot Boy: Beep Beep. Look both ways before crossing the street. Beep Beep.
Panel four: Pizza Girl is answering as she cups her hands and looks cute as a button.
Pizza Girl: Stay together so we don’t get separated because other kids and groups will be trick-r-treatin’ too.
Panel five: The Tiger Biker answers as he slashes the air with his samurai sword.
Tiger Biker: And be sure to check our candy before we eat it. Grrr.
Panel six: Jughead opens the door as watches as the kids march out in a single file line with their Halloween bags at their chest, stretched open. Jellybean, still in Jughead’s arms, moves about like she is marching on thin air.
Jughead: Onward, troops! For we own the night!
Panel one: Jughead is leading the kids to Ethel’s house as several other groups of kids are leaving. The Mugg house has several multi-colored ghosts chasing various mult-colored skeletons wearing Jughead’s hat hanging on trees and cut outs stuck on the doors and windows. The kids are dressed like various power rangers incarnations. A group of kids dressed like farmers and scarecrows, are passing by with a wagon of small pumpkins as they are in a hurry and dropping several pumpkins as they rush ahead. The kids seem to have candy in their bags already and the tiger biker and robot are holding Jellybean’s hand as they help her walk across the street. In the sky is a full moon.
Jughead: Okay, kids, we’ve gotten our street complete, now we go outside our parameter and the first people we should visit are the bigger candy givers.
Panel two: Jughead is knocking on the door for the kids as he looks back and talks with them.
Jughead: Oh. I almost forgot. Some people put details in their costumes that can be a little scary, but just remember-- it’s only costumes.
Panel three: The door is open as Ethel, dressed like Archie is standing in front of Jughead with a giant bowl of candy. Ethel is wearing the traditional Archie Riverdale vest, wearing an orange wig, and has drawn on freckles. Jughead looks on in fright.
Ethel: Jughead! How nice to see you! Want to give your best friend in the world a kiss?
Panel four: Jughead pulls out his sword and slashes an imaginary J in the air as the Tiger Biker leaps out in front of Jughead. The Robot Boy and Pizza Girl look on as Jellybean is confused as she has a thought balloon of Archie and Ethel as Archie as she’s trying to tell the difference between the two.
Jughead: Just give us the candy, doppelganger!!
Tiger Biker: Yeah! All the candy!! GRRR!
Panel one: Jughead and the kids are preparing to cross a street as Jughead stops them to look both ways. Jughead is back to carrying Jellybean.
Jughead: What do we do?
Kids: Look both ways before crossing the street!
Panel two: An old beat down brown car drives by with two middle age men inside wearing robber masks as they speed off leaving tire treads on the street as they move. The driver is short and fat, while the other is tall and lean.
Panel three: The Pizza Girl is tugging on Jughead’s cape to get his attention as they approach a new house. Several kids dressed like cops of various generations chase after the car.
Pizza Girl: Jughead, shouldn’t we call the police ‘bout the bank robbers?
Panel four: Jughead is knocking on the door as he talks with the Pizza Girl and eases her mind and waves off the notion that the people driving the car were bank robbers.
Jughead: Oh those guys in the car? Don’t worry. It’s Halloween. Everyone is wearing a costume; it’s not the same as the real person.
Panel five: The door begins to open as the kids hold out their bags and scream Trick-or-Treat.
Panel six: Trula Twyst standing by the doorway wearing a devil costume, complete with horns as Jughead glares at her.
Jughead: Of course there are a few exceptions to the rule....!
Trula Twyst: My,my. Juggers and his little Jugaroos.
Panel one: Trula pats Jellybean on the head as she bends down and smiles at the kids. Jughead waves his arms like Robby The Robot would in his “Danger! Danger! Danger!” mode.
Trula: Such wonderful costumes!
Robot: Beep Beep. Thanks.
Jughead: Careful, kids! This is how evil lures you in. She’s not even hiding her true form this time!
Panel two: Trula is dropping apples in each of the bags as the kids look on happily.
Trula: Here you go.
Panel three: Jughead is glaring at Trula as Trula smirks at him and is reaching into her costume pocket for something.
Jughead: What’s the big idea? Your mom gives out fun sized coco bars every year!
Trula: I did the Halloween shopping this year, and I wanted to give children a healthy alternate choice.
Jughead: Why don’t you choose to move to an alternate country!?
Panel four: Trula, smiling wickedly, is showing Jughead an apple core as he points at himself.
Trula: Apple core.
Trula: Who’s your friend?
Panel five: The kids are sitting on the porch eating as Trula throws the apple core at Jughead as it splatters across his face. Jellybean happily has taken a bite out of her apple and holds it up.
Tiger Biker: Apples are grrrreeat!!!
Pizza Girl: I’ll give this to my teacher tomorrow.
Robot: Beep Beep. I’ll give this to my doctor to keep him away.

Panel one: Jughead is in the attic of his house looking through various old boxes full of antique pictures, one of which looks like a baker in his mid-forties proudly holding up a cake. The baker is very round with a fat face and red face cheeks. Other items include an old dough roller, old pots, and an old beat up cookie sheet. Jughead eyes an old time soda bottle with the cap twisted on that seems to have a drop of soda left in it. The attic is a mess with various holiday decorations and old clothes scattered about.
Jughead: And here I was thinking my parents making me clean up the attic wouldn’t be worth it…
Jughead: That soda bottle has a single drop left in it!!
Panel two: Jughead begins to turn the bottle cap.
Jughead: Eh, one little drop nearly forty years past the expiration date shouldn’t hurt anyone.
Panel three: Very small shot of Jughead taking off the bottle cap.
Panel four: A large gust of wind, like a hurricane, erupts from the bottle as Jughead is nearly knocked off his feet from the power. His hat is nearly blown off his head. The wind seems to just swirl around the attic as it blows coats, boxes, and various other items and clothing around.
Jughead: Yikes!! Then again, I did have to have my stomach pumped after I took a bite out of a four month old burger I found in the storm gutters!!
Panel one: Jughead closes his eyes as the wind seems to keep coming. The room is getting colder as Jughead’s breath can be seen in the air and the window just behind Jughead is beginning to frost up. Various items are lying on the ground, including the old dough roller.
Jughead: I heard of making a twister with water and two soda bottles taped together, but this is out of the science fair and into the Twilight Zone!!
Panel two: The power coming from the soda bottle dies down as Jughead arms lower. Jughead looks down at the bottle in confusion. The dough roller is beginning to roll back and forth as the wind dies down and items begin to fall all over the attic.
Jughead: Looks like the soda’s going flat…!!
Panel three: Jughead lets the empty bottle fall to the ground as he wipes his brow in relief.
Jughead: I’m glad that’s over…
Panel four: Jughead looks around the attic to see that everything is a mess with various clothes, coats, shoes, boxes, and various holiday decorations scattered and tangle all around the attic.
Jughead: I’m not so much glad about this.
Panel one: Jughead is bending over to pick up old newspapers and stuff them into a box. The window behind him is still frosted over as Jughead angrily works. Behind him the dough roller is following right behind him.
Jughead: That was weird even for a unique individual like myself…
Panel two: Jughead is now struggling to untangle Christmas lights from two yard gnomes as the dough roller is now standing on its end all alone. One yard gnome has a chef hat on it’s pointy red hat. The window that is frosted over now has a game of tic-tac-toe just finished with X winning diagonally.
Jughead: That window over there must be cracked and the autumn wind actually came in like a raider or whatever that soccer quote is.
Panel three: Jughead has the lights untangled and putting them in the box as Jughead begins to turn around as the dough roller is now being tapped on the floor just behind him.
TAP…TAP TAP TAP TAP
Jughead: Two bits!!
Panel four: Jughead turns around as the dough roller is now on the ground as if nothing happened.
Jughead: Funny with ears like mine, I know I heard something…
Panel five: Jughead is scratching his head as he holds up the dough roller. Unbeknownst to him from behind his back, the chef’s hat seems to be floating and leaving the attic.
Jughead: Y’know, you’d think there would have been an electronic one of these by now.
Panel one: Jughead is climbing down from the attic as he is dirty, his clothes wrinkled, and seems to be on his last legs as yets out a hard yawn.
Jughead: YAAWWNN. That took hours after I took one or two naps.
Panel two: Jughead turns to hear his mother calling for him.
Mrs. Jones off-panel: JUGHEAD!!! KITCHEN!!! NOW!!!
Jughead: Yikes! The Boss!! And she sounds ticked!!
Panel three: Jughead begins to rush into the kitchen as he licks his lips. Just outside the door frame is a hand print made in flour.
Jughead: Normally, I’d be where she isn’t, but sounds like she’s in the kitchen and I could go for …
Panel four: Jughead enters the kitchen as he finds that all the food has been eaten. The refrigerator door is open to see that everything has been eaten with only empty wrappers and turned over milk bottles remain. The floor is littered with ham and chicken bones, broken egg shells, and empty soda cans. The cabinet doors are wide open to see empty boxes of rice, cereal, and various other food items. In the corner, a mouse is unhappily looking at a mouse trap where the cheese has already been eaten. Mrs. Jones extends both her arms at the kitchen as she glares at Jughead. Jughead is confused as to what happened. Along the floor are various flour footprints and on the walls and table are flour hand prints. On the walls are alternate flour foot and hand prints like someone walked or crawled on the wall up to the ceiling.
Jughead: … a quick bite to eat…?
Mrs. Jones: Oh, you were quick, but not too subtle!!
Panel one: Jughead is kicking at a drumstick bone on the floor as Mrs. Jones begins to yell at Jughead.
Mrs. Jones: Oh, there is no pardon for you! You ate every crumb, morsel, and speck of food in the entire house!!
Panel two: Jughead puts his hands at his chest as he backs away from his mother who is stomping towards him. Jughead backs himself towards a wall.
Jughead: Hey, I didn’t do this! I was busy doing housework!
Panel three: Mrs. Jones stares at Jughead suspiciously as Jughead thinks about what he just said to himself.
Panel four: Jughead shrugs his shoulders and rolls his eyes as he knows he has no chance of convincing him mom of his innocence. Mrs. Jones has her arms crossed and is tapping her feet.
Jughead: Yeah, If I could get you to believe that, I’ve got a unicorn tied to a tree in Brooklyn I might interest you in….
Panel five: Mrs. Jones points a finger at Jughead as Jughead has a trash bag and is beginning to pick up egg shells and empty potato chip bags as he begins to begrudgingly clean up. Jughead’s stomach is beginning to rumble as Jughead looks like he is having hunger pains. Behind Mrs. Jones an invisible force, unseen by Jughead and Mrs. Jones, is taking a bite out of an apple.
Mrs. Jones: You’re cleaning this mess up while I make a list of groceries you are going to go get!! And don’t even think about helping yourself to even a nibble!!
Jughead: I wouldn’t mind if I were guilty this time—since I wouldn’t be starving right now!!!
Panel one: Jughead is walking outside as Hot Dog greets him in just outside the door. Jughead is looking over a very long list of groceries to buy. Jughead has some money in one hand as he sadly reads the list.
Jughead: Sheesh, she’s got the price and tax rate so I can’t even skim two quarters for a small bag of chips!
Panel two: Jughead looks down at Hot Dog as Hot Dog tilts his head in confusion.
Jughead: Say, H.D., you wouldn’t happen to notice anything peculiar going on at the homestead, have you?
Panel three: Hot Dog looks past Jughead as the living room door is still open as a giant wind blows and the TV and couch are levitating upside down in the air. Various pictures are being juggled in the air by an unseen force. Hot Dog’s fur and ears are standing up end as his eyes stick out in fright like the old time cartoons.
Hot Dog: !!!
Panel four: Hot Dog is running down the street as Jughead scratches the bottom of his chin and squints with one eye as he is pondering the meaning of Hot Dog’s actions.
Jughead: I guess that would be a “yes”.

Jughead in Return of the Glutton!!
Panel one: Jughead looking at bulletin board just in front of the General Pickens statue as he reads one of the many flyers that reads: 25th McDavid Pie Eating Contest. Another flyer is about Betty Cooper: Babysitter. Another is: REGGIE MANTLE: AWESOME. Another is an advertisement for BAKE A CAKE: YOU EAT WHAT YOU MAKE. Jughead pats his stomach as he licks his lips at the thought of the pie eating contest. Lying on the ground is a penguin reading a magazine titled: GLIDERS AIR. A man accidentally bopping his dog on the head with a Frisbee is staring flabbergasted at the penguin.
Jughead: Well, old friend. Looks like we’ll have all the sweet tasty pies we can eat in just another week.
Jughead’s stomach: Get me a candy bar until then!
Panel two: Jughead stays in place as an enormous round shadow engulfs him. The penguin is raising a fist at the cause of the shadow as its light is being blocked out.
Off-panel: Enjoy the few pies you can manage to munch because the sweet taste of victory will belong to—
Panel three: A shot of Gregory “The Glutton” Gorgey as he is eating six slim jims and a folded up pizza with a giant bite taken out of it. He is drinking a two liter bottle of soda with a giant orange looping straw as he stands before Jughead and gloats.
The Glutton: --Gregory “The Glutton” Gorgey!!!
Panel one: Jughead has his hands in his pockets as he leans back and forth on the ball of his heels, not seeming to pay The Glutton any attention. The Glutton has finished off his food and is taking a giant sip out of his two liter soda, scrunching up the bottle, as he glares at Jughead. The penguin is ripping out a section of the magazine.
The Glutton: I can tell you’re scared. Truth stings, don’t it?
Panel two: Jughead shrugs his shoulders as he doesn’t look like he could care one way or the other. The Glutton extends his arms in agitation as he lets the slim jim wrappers and the empty two liter bottle fall to the ground. The penguin is waddling off as it motions with its arms like it were actually flying. In one flipper, it has the page of magazine it ripped out.
Jughead: I’m more worried about burning my lips on freshly baked pies. Not that really stings.
The Glutton: WHAT?!
Panel three: Jughead is bent down and picking up the garbage that The Glutton had dropped. The Glutton is using his thumbs to point at himself as he begins to brag.
The Glutton: Hah! You’re just trying to psyche me out!! Playing weak mind games!!
The Glutton: You may have won every contest so far, but the law of average says that I have to win one eventually!!!
Panel four: Jughead is throwing the garbage into a nearby trashcan as The Glutton tilts his head in confusion. In the background, the dog owner from earlier is treed up a tree by his pet, now sporting a bump on his noggin.
Jughead: It’s hard to get an average when you think about how numbers are endless…
Panel five: The Glutton’s face is red with rage and his stomach seems to be acting like a water balloon filled with boiling water as it waves violently as Jughead walks away.
Jughead: But that would involve a “pi” you don’t know much about.
The Glutton: GRRRRR!!!
Panel one: The Glutton is stomping his feet as several people standing next to him fall because of the mini-quake he creates. A gopher and a mole are evacuating a hole as they shield their head. The mole
The Glutton: I can’t stand that Jughead Jones!!!
Panel two: The Glutton, biting on his shirt collar, is walking away as several people are still dazed on the ground. The mole is running around blindly as the gopher tries to catch up to him.
The Glutton: Always with the retorts, always thinking he’s funny—always eating more than me!!
Panel three: The Glutton is looking over at the bulletin board as he begins to study the various fliers on it.
The Glutton: If I can’t use my teeth to beat him, I’ll use my brain!
Panel four: The Glutton’s eyes light up as he spots a flyer that gives him an idea.
The Glutton: Now that’s what I’m munching about…!!
Panel one: Jughead is walking outside of his house as an envelope is left on his porch. Jughead waves goodbye to his parents as he plans on going to the pie eating contest. In the sky, a penguin using a hang glider is taking the lead in a V formation of ducks.
Caption: Day of the McDavid Pie Eating contest.
Jughead: Later, Pops, Mom, Jellybean, gotta get my slice of the pie!
Mrs. Jones: Don’t you mean as many pies as you can get?
Panel two: Jughead looks down and notices the envelope.
Jughead: The mailman’s getting a tad lazy this Saturday morn.
Panel three: Jughead’s eyes light up as he looks at a blue and red coupon.
Jughead: Wow! A special delivery I can sink my teeth into!!
Panel four: Jughead looks at the coupon as it reads: MAKE YOUR OWN SPECIAL CAKE AT BAKE A CAKE.
Jughead: Wow!! I can make my own cake at Bake a Cake—for free?!
Panel five: Jughead happily skips off as he salivates at scrumptious cake he is going to have. The Glutton is hiding behind a small bush that does not even come close to hiding him. But Jughead is so in high spirits, he doesn’t pay attention.
Jughead: More flavors than the rainbow has colors and more layers than an onion--that's the cake for me!!
The Glutton: Heh Heh.
Panel six: The Glutton looks on from the street as Jughead zooms ahead as he is racing to fill his stomach.
The Glutton: Let’s see how much pie you can eat when I make sure you’re stuffed like a Thanksgiving Day turkey!!

Panel one: Mr. Andrews is dragging Archie along a street near several diners with various tables and seats outside. One person is complaining to a waiter about a fly in his soup.
Mr. Andrews: Archie! Archie! Hurry up or we’ll miss him!!
Archie: I’ll be missing an arm if you keep pulling!!
Panel two: Archie is walking behind his dad as his dad is looking through the outside tables in one of the street diners. Archie is rubbing his shoulder and moving his arm across his chest as he tries to regain feeling in it. Mr. Andrews is as giddy as a school kid at a new toy as several diners look at him like he’s nuts. The waiter is holding up a spider-web as a spider is descending into the soup.
Archie: Who are we looking for, dad?
Mr. Andrews: My co-worker at the office called me and told me that my favorite western star growing up was visiting Riverdale!!
Panel three: Mr. Andrews pointing ahead.
Mr. Andrews: There!
Panel four: We look to see a man who looks like Clint Eastwood as he is glaring at an empty chair. Flint Northwood is wearing a dirty white cowboy hat, an old brown trench coat and cowboy boots as he is drinking a root beer float. The table next to him has two empty seats. Flint’s table has four chairs: One next to Flint, the other next to the empty chair. On the table in front of the empty chair, is cup full of water with a straw facing the chair. Every time Flint talks his teeth are clenched.
Mr. Andrews: Bimbo, Surly, The Pale Horse Rider, Howdy Bates, and the Man Known By No Name—
Mr. Andrews: FLINT NORTHWOOD!!!
Panel one: Archie is scratching his head as he doesn’t see what’s so great about Flint Northwood as Mr. Andrews ignores him and rushes over to see Flint Northwood. As he runs, he bumps into a waiter carrying pitcher of water on a tray as it begins to fall on a man. Flint has his cowboy hat over his eyes.
Archie: The guy in that movie about the old car?
Mr. Andrews: He’s more than just that! He’s rode horses!!
Panel two: Mr. Andrews is standing next to Flint Northwood as Flint doesn’t acknowledge him as he takes a sip of his root beer. Mr. Andrews is trying to hold his excitement, but failing. Archie is following after his dad in the background and accidentally bumps into another waiter carrying a pitcher of water on a tray as the water falls backwards onto someone sitting.
Mr. Andrews: Mr. Northwood, pardner…er, sir. Sir. I grew up watching your shows and movies! I make sure my family watches five of your movies each and every week!
Panel three: Archie is apologizing as he turns and continues on. The two waiters are angry and the drenched diners look like they could strangle Archie and his dad. Flint Northwood puts his drink down and looks ahead sternly, not acknowledging Mr. Andrews by looking at him. Mr. Andrews leaps up in joy.
Flint Northwood: A man shouldn’t stand about when an open chair is right in front of him.
Panel four: Archie is heading towards the seat next to Northwood as his dad takes the seat closest to Northwood. Mr. Andrews introduces Archie as Archie waves hello at Flint Northwood. Flint eyes Archie.
Mr. Andrews: Mr. Northwood this is my boy, Archie.
Archie: Hello, sir. My dad quotes you all the time.
Panel five: Archie stops as he’s about to sit down in the empty chair next to Flint when Flint glares at him with cold blue eyes and gnashing teeth.
Panel six: Archie moves away from the seat and looks confused as no one is in it. Flint takes another sip from his root beer float.
Flint Northwood: Not that chair. Can’t you see someone’s in it?
Panel one: Archie scratches his head as he questions Flint about someone sitting in the empty chair. Flint rolls his eyes towards Archie. Mr. Andrews slams his hands down on the table as he reprimands Archie for daring to question Flint Northwood. Mr. Andrews slams the table so hard, that a waiter carrying water is startled and tips his water on the person sitting at the next table behind Mr. Andrews. The glass of water in front of the empty chair, unnoticed by everyone, is being stirred using its straw by an unseen presence.
Archie: I don’t mean to be disrespectful…but there’s no one sitting in that chair.
Mr. Andrews: Archie! Don’t be disrespectful at all!!
Panel two: Flint Northwood glares at Archie as Archie begins to back away. Behind Archie another waiter is carrying water as a person sitting at the table behind Archie sees him coming.
Flint Northwood: You seem like a spunky boy, punk.
Panel three: Archie bumps into the waiter just behind him, but the person sitting has an umbrella out and stops the water from landing on him.
Flint Northwood: Well, are you spunky. Well, are you, spunky punk?!!
Archie: No! No! I hate spunk!!
Panel four: Archie takes the other empty seat as a waiter leaves menus for the three. The straw in the water is now back to where it was before. Flint nods in approval at Archie’s decision as Mr. Andrews vehemently apologies to Flint Northwood.
Archie: I’ll sit here, if that’s okay…
Mr. Andrews: I apologize! I swear he didn’t get his sass from me! It has to be his mother!!

Panel one: Jughead is in his room as he is lying on his bed looking up at the ceiling as he has tried to fall asleep but can’t. Scattered along his bed are various Mega Man and Sonic The Hedgehog comics.
Jughead: Sigh. I guess after eighteen hours, I just can’t squeeze out a two hour nap.
Panel two: Jughead looks over the left side of his bed where we see several empty dishes with various food stains and a few chicken bones on the ground. Jughead pats his stomach complacently.
Jughead: And I’ve reached my quota of food for the next few hours.
Panel three: Jughead jumps out of bed as he slips on his shoes. Out a window, we can see a bird carrying a carrot wrapped in a note.
Jughead: As much as I don’t like moving and having to be active…
Jughead: I hate being absolutely bored even more.
Panel one: Jughead is entering is in the living room as no one else is around.
Jughead: Where is everyone?
Panel two: Jughead snaps his fingers as he remembers.
Jughead: Oh yeah!
Jughead: Mom and Pops took Jellybean to see great aunt Lenore today! They’ll be gone for the rest of the afternoon.
Panel three: Jughead is sitting on the sofa as he is unimpressed by the TV shows he is clicking to.
TV: Now to follow the adventures of The Rabbit Man of Ken-
TV: Hey, actors who can’t find work acting doing things that other people do—
TV: Follow the life of a kid who just eats, sleeps, and mooches off of friends in—
Panel four: Jughead drops the remote over his shoulder as it lands on the sofa as Jughead begins to walk towards a window.
Jughead: I’d rather read a book than watch a TV show like that!
Panel five: Jughead looks out the window to see Hot Dog’s empty dog house. Coming out of a rabbit hole nearby is a battalion of bunnies wearing camouflage face paint crawling across the yard like they were going under a barbwire fence. One rabbit is wearing a military helmet with a carrot sticker on it as he motions for his bunny battalion to continue. A bunny wearing a surgeon’s mask sticks its head out of the hole and motions at his wrist to tell them they have to hurry with whatever they are planning to do. The bird from earlier is preparing to pick up the surgeon bunny.
Jughead: Rats. Looks like Hot Dog’s already went out with his wagging tailed friends.
Panel six: Jughead leaves his house as he walks down his drive way. Behind Jughead, Sgt. Carrot is motioning for his bunny battalion to move out as they begin to hop in a single file line and salute.
Jughead: That’s actually not a bad idea to hang out with friends when you’re bored. Especially when hijinks galore happen with you best bud.
Panel one: Jughead is knocking on the door of the Andrews’ house as he straightens his hat and prepares for whatever misadventure is to come. Behind Jughead one of the bunny’s has a pair of binoculars as he is scoping the area.
Jughead: I wonder what misadventure Archie has today: accidentally super gluing his socks to his shoes, saving Mr. Lodge from kidnappers, needing saving from Ronnie…
Panel two: Mrs. Andrews opens the door and greets Jughead.
Mrs. Andrews: Oh, good afternoon, Jughead.
Jughead: Mrs. A. One of few females who makes me pause and thinks that the entire guy-girl relationship might have merits.
Panel three: Jughead looks over Mrs. Andrews shoulder as he peeks to see if Archie has gotten himself into any trouble. Mrs. Andrews is blushing from Jughead’s compliment.
Mrs. Andrews. And for a girl-hater per excel lance, you can say the sweetest things.
Jughead: Momentary lapses in better judgment.
Jughead: Say, what’s our boy Archie gotten himself into for today?
Panel four: Mrs. Andrews points at the empty car space in the drive way as Jughead looks on. The rest of the bunny battalion are peeking their heads out from inside the car garage.
Mrs. Andrews: Oh, him and his father went fishing a few hours ago.
Panel four: Jughead puts his hands in his pockets as he sadly walks away as Mrs. Andrews closes the door. Behind Jughead, the bunny with binoculars is looking upwards as a grappling line is coming out of nowhere and going nowhere off panel as Sgt. Carrot and the rest of the Bunny Battalion zip off-panel.
Jughead: Sigh. A guy can’t wait over half the day for a friend to wake up before he decides to head off with a loved one…?
Jughead: Guess I gotta go a bit further if I’m going to find any excitement for the day.
Panel one: Jughead looks over at Betty’s house as he cheers up. Sgt. Carrot is talking with Betty’s cat Carmel. Sgt. Bunny is sticking out his leg and pointing at it as Carmel tilts her head in confusion. Behind Sgt. Carrot the rest of the Bunny Battalion are hard at work. Several bunnies are weaving a small basket and another tired rabbit is trying to blow up a small hot air balloon all by himself.
Jughead: Wait, that doesn’t sound like me and I don’t have to go far when Betty lives right next door.
Panel two: Jughead is at the Betty Cooper house as Mr. Cooper answers.
Jughead: Hello, Mr. Cooper. I thought maybe I could see Betty.
Panel three: Mr. Cooper stares at Jughead in surprise.
Panel four: Jughead waves off Mr. Cooper’s thought process as Mr. Cooper lets out a sigh of relief.
Jughead: Oh. Don’t worry, I don’t want to ask her out, I’m just bored and wanted to talk with someone.
Mr. Cooper: Wheew. What a relief…!!
Panel five: Mr. Cooper explains that Betty isn’t home as Jughead begins to inquire why Betty didn’t tell him about her day.
Mr. Cooper: Well, I’m sorry, but Betty and Veronica just finished their cake for the county bake contest in Greendale and won’t be bake for hours.
Jughead: Wait, Betty was entering a cooking contest and didn’t tell me about it?
Panel six: Mr. Cooper talks with Jughead as Jughead sadly waves goodbye. Behind Jughead, one of the bunny’s somehow gets his foot tangled in a rope for a small hot air balloon as the rest of the bunny battalion try to keep him from floating away as they clutch at his ears. Sgt. Carrot face palms at the sight of his troops.
Mr. Cooper: Wouldn’t you have just eaten it?
Jughead: Sigh, yeah….and wacky shenanigans would have followed.
Panel one: Jughead is walking along a suburban street as it seems like it’s only him out. In a small hot air balloon floating just behind Jughead, Sgt Carrot is pointing ahead of Jughead and is rubbing two carrots together to signal his rabbit soldiers.
Jughead: Archie’s not around, Betty’s gone…and she took Ronnie with her so I don’t even have an excuse to even go to the Lodges now…
Panel two: Jughead looks over to see Jinx Malloy who is happily skipping along as he is wearing a necklace under his shirt. For once no calamities are happening around him. In the bushes behind Jinx, several small eyes and long rabbit ears are peering at him. Sgt. Carrot has dropped a rope as he is climbing down the hot air balloon.
Jughead: Say, Jinx Malloy! He just walks around and misadventures happen!
Panel three: Jughead runs up to Jinx as he has his arms over his head, his body bent down and looking over his right shoulder to see if a plane or something else is going to fall out of the sky.
Jinx: Hey, Jughead!
Jughead: Hello, Jinx. Say, don’t mean to pry, but I’ve noticed that you’re taking an afternoon stroll and Riverdale is still standing…
Panel four: Jinx proudly pulls out his lucky rabbit foot as Jughead raises an eyebrow in disbelief. Behind Jinx, Sgt.Carrot is glaring at him as the rest of the bunny battalion begins to hop out of the bushes to stand behind Sgt. Carrot.
Jinx: I know! I just bought this lucky rabbit’s foot and not one bad thing has happened!!
Panel five: Jughead begins to question Jinx as Jinx begins to twirl the rabbit’s foot around.
Jughead: So no accidents, mishaps, perils, bad ju-ju, calamities, mishaps, hoodoos, or slight armageddons?
Jinx: Not a trial or error for me today!
Panel six: Jughead forlornly walks away as Jinx turns around in fright to see Sgt. Carrot motioning with his knee and leg that’s he’s going to break something. The rest of the bunny battalion is beginning to leap at Jinx.
Jughead: Well, I guess bad things can’t happen to a guy all the time.

I've never really liked any of the Jughead voices I've heard in cartoons (Haven't seen New Archies) and I never could figure out who, when I read my digests, should be Jughead's voice in my head. Then I realized Drake Bell is perfect.
His voice can be funny and it's weird, but it's not so absurd like I've heard before. It really works.
Any one else agree?
