  • Vegan Jughead: Ms. Grundy would have been a total surprise but it turned out she wasn't really Ms. Grundy so I can let that go.  Killing Moose after barely seeing him last year and Midge after she was in literally one episode (and barely in it, at that) seems ridiculous.

  • DeCarlo Rules: For a character franchise that's been running for 75+ years, ARCHIE really has a pretty small cast of regulars. Apart from the core 5 and the other 6 already mentioned, there's Cheryl & Jason and Kevin... and (filed under "extended supporting players") the teachers and parents. That's pretty much it. 14 teen characters and their parents & teachers. Sabrina and Josie and their supporting casts coexist in Riverdale, but they're really their own separate franchises. If your murder victims turn out to be Jinx Malloy and Cricket O'Dell, there's not much drama in it, beyond a shrug.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Why Moose and Midge? Good question... let me know if you can think of any other ongoing characters who are more expendable, but still well-known. I guess the other likely candidates would be Dilton and Ethel, or Chuck and Nancy. I guess you could come up with a short list of other names, but are they really that well-known? Ms. Grundy was a total surprise!

  • CAPalace: Seriously though why are Moose and Midge like one of the first people to die whenever they are in the horror stories line and now Riverdale lol

  • Tuxedo Mark: I recently watched Geek House's reaction to the episode. They're very amateur. They often leave in false starts and farting around before the actual intro. Joey often struggles with the episode title, like he can't just look it up before they start recording. Joey has to announce that he's putting the video into full screen and then does a countdown. Cut all of that stuff out! In the new review, he and his wife didn't react at all to Moose and Midge being killed. It soon became apparent that they didn't even know it was Moose and Midge! Joey referred to them as the "drug addicts".

  • JonInIowaCity: I'm not saying that they're dead, but they're not listed as appearing in any future episodes in IMBD, while other minor characters are.

  • Vegan Jughead: I don't think Moose and Midge are dead.  I hope not.  It's one thing to kill Jason Blossom.  Killing two characters who have been around for 68 years is something else entirely.

Archie and Varsity Jackets
« on: April 07, 2017, 03:38:54 PM »
Richie Cunningham often wore a varsity jacket on Happy Days.  However, I do not think Archie ever wore a varsity jacket in the 1950s, although they certainly existed at that time.  When was the first time Archie wore a varsity jacket.  I am thinking it is not until at least the 1970s, maybe even the 1980s.

They used to be "Varsity Sweaters.

Jackets came later.

Archie was still wearing the sweater with the R on it well into the 1980s.  I did find what looks like it may be a letter jacket on the cover of Archie at Riverdale High #70 from 1980.  It's got the R on it at least.  There may very well have been earlier appearances, but I just did a cursory glance at the covers of a few titles.

He's had it (jacket or sweater, doesn't matter) sometime in the 2000s, or even the 2010s, hasn't he?  I could have sworn, somewhere. Of course it's not consistent or anything, it's just a whenever-type thing, right?

The Varsity sweater has been a mainstay on covers since Archie #1.  I can't think of many instances of his wearing a Varsity jacket.  Glad Rusty found one example.

Here's another example from Archie Giant Series #601 - October 1989

Wasn't that sweater/vest thing he wore in the 50s considered a varsity sweater?

  I was only referring to varsity jackets.  I knew about the varsity sweater.
