  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie - World of Archie #68 has a word balloon on the cover. I don't know if you could call it a gag, though. There's really no joke in "C'mon, Ronnie! The water's great!", other than proving once again that Archie doesn't comprehend the difference between the fashions Veronica wears to show off, and the suits she wears to actually get wet.

Maybe Betty had more hair back then or it was permed to make it poof out more so you could see it on both sides. It almost looks like she just tied the top half of her hair with a ribbon and the left the bottom half down.

PS -- I  just want to know why Betty gets criticized in the photo as having an inaccurate hairstyle, while Archie and Veronica, whose hairstyles are just as (if not more so) inaccurate, just get a free pass and no one's saying 'boo' about it.

Okay -- I just watched over a minute or so of that episode of Riverdale on YouTube. I guess I can say I enjoyed the first 30 seconds or so of that scene, before it went all David Lynch on me, so I don't feel compelled to watch any more of it.

I'm fine with watching Twin Peaks or The Walking Dead or something like that, and also enjoy traditional Archie Comics, because I can enjoy different things that are totally different. Just like I can enjoy candy, and something totally different like teriyaki. They aren't "2 great tastes that taste great together", though.

Doesn't look anything like Veronica's hair in 1950s stories. Maybe like some later hairstyle of Veronica's.

And it's consistent thereafter.

Not really. She seemed to switch between that and pigtails around the late 1990s / early 2000s (and maybe earlier; not sure) and also sometimes just plain wore her hair down (albeit rarely).

I meant for the 1950s, which seemed to be the point about which people were confused here. So in answer to the question "True or False: Betty had a ponytail in the 1950s"?, the correct answer is both True (she had a ponytail from 1957-1959), and False (she did not have a ponytail from 1950-1956).

I don't know when the scenes in the photos are imagined to be taking place, but I can assure you it's not the 1940s. The answer to whether the photos are accurate to the fashion of pre-1957 or 1957-onwards would be dependent on a single key visual clue in the photos -- Jughead's sneakers, which are Converse All-Stars. If he's wearing low-cut Oxford style Converse All-Stars, that would place the photos as from 1957 or later, because 1957 was the first year in which Converse manufactured the low-cut version of those sneakers. Prior to that all Converse All-Stars were hi-tops. I honestly can't tell from the photos, as it seems like Jughead's pants are obscuring a view of where the shoes are cut at the ankle.


  I'm a big fan of Converse All Stars and have been wearing them for many years.  Jughead is clearly not wearing Converse All Stars ("Chucks") in that photograph.  You can tell by the design on the toe cap and also the back heel area.  Those are PF Flyers.  Also, I doubt very much that Jughead wore sneakers in any 1950s Archie Comic (unless he was in gym class or actually engaged in a sport of some kind).

True about Jughead not wearing sneakers in the 1950s stories, but that's the sort of detail I'd be willing to let pass for a television adaptation. I'll take your word on the PF Flyers. I was merely seeking something concrete in the photo to pin down the intended time frame, but I suppose you could also argue that since the photo is referencing a dream sequence of Jughead's, nothing about it is necessarily accurate to begin with regarding any specific year.
