  • DeCarlo Rules: Thanks, VJ. I did not know of Penny Peabody. If they're going to reprint Little Archie, I wish they'd reprint the longer, better (pre-1965) ones by Bolling. It seems like the longer stories allowed Bolling to create something more interesting out of LA, but there seems like some taboo against reprinting them in the digests.

  • Vegan Jughead: Penny Peabody was the girlfriend of Fangs Fogarty, the bully in the Little Archie comics.  I know you don't love those and even if you did read a lot of them, she's barely in them.  Really obscure.  Real Ms Grundy is dead I think.  This one stole her identity if I remember correctly.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...and if Ms. Grundy wasn't Ms. Grundy, then who was she, and where is the real Ms. Grundy?

  • Vegan Jughead: Hey but who needs Moose and Midge when you can have such prominent characters as Penny Peabody and Toni Topaz on the show?
    October 22, 2017, 10:30:03 AM
  • 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.
    October 21, 2017, 08:31:51 AM
  • 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.
    October 21, 2017, 07:12:39 AM
  • 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
    October 20, 2017, 12:36:49 PM
  • 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".

  • Vegan Jughead: Oh, wow, that sucks.
    October 20, 2017, 09:21:57 AM
  • 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.
    October 20, 2017, 08:53:10 AM
  • 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.

HOT DOG prototype - in 1964?
« on: April 15, 2016, 06:11:34 AM »
I was struck, when browsing through some old cover images from issues of LAUGH, to see these covers featuring shaggy white dogs bearing an amazing resemblance to Hot Dog. The actual Hog Dog (as named) didn't appear until plans got underway for Filmation's The Archie Show,  which first aired in 1968. These covers from LAUGH are dated May and July of 1964, respectively.

There was a dog who looked like Hot Dog in one of the '40s stories, he was Archie's new dog.

I remember Archie having a dog in the 1940s stories, but I don't remember it being a big, shaggy white dog that looked like Hot Dog. Do you have an image of the dog you're thinking of?

If I find it again I'll post it, it was probably an image from the old forum.  :(

Archie had a Hot Dog-esque dog named Bonaparte for one story in Archie Comics #33. He even made the cover of Archie Archives #10! Archie's other dog Oscar, who appeared in a number of Sahle-era stories, did not bear a resemblance to Hot Dog.

Just the one story? Was he Hot Dog-like in any other way (thought balloons, lazy, glutton for food), or just in appearance?

As far as I can tell, he only appeared in one story. No other Hot Dog-like characteristics aside from his appearance.

He does look a lot like Hot Dog though, allowing for the 1940s style of drawing.

He was kind of like Hot Dog by causing a lot of trouble but I guess that's like all dogs.

I just came across this Oscar dog. I had never heard of him before.

Oscar first appeared in some of the early 1940s comic book stories.

Actually, Hot Dog used to be Archie's dog before he was Jughead's. I recall a story like that, though I can't find it yet. Anyone else remember it?

PEP #224. "Father Knows Beast".  I haven't come across a reprint in several years.

I was noticing how, while he's generally still recognizable, there's quite a bit of variation between the different classic Archie artists as far as how they draw Hot Dog. The original Filmation-designed character has a pretty distinctive look, but after a short while in the comics, it seems like few Archie artists bothered to reference that design for their model when drawing Hot Dog. In more recent stories in particular, I noticed that Fernando Ruiz' version of Hot Dog seems less fat than the version typical of other artists, though he's still a big dog.
