I bought The U.S. of Archie by Peter Pan Records, c. 1975 from my local antique mall.


I always wondered what the guys at Filmation were thinking with that one. I mean sure, for about a year and half the whole country was going crazy with "bicentennial fever" or whatever you want to call it, and the U.S. government was marketing the flag-waving patriotic celebration concept like nobpdy's business.

Still, you had to figure the hard-headed business guys in TV production knew how these things work, and that those animated shows were only profitable to the extent that you could get the maximum amount of mileage out of them as reruns. Naturally after the bicentennial was over anything tied in with it was going to seem stale and dated, so... what were they thinking? Kids were only going to put up with an "educational" Archie show about U.S. history as long as the bicentennial fever raged on. And indeed, the U.S. of Archie had nothing like the shelf-life of the Filmation Archie cartoons that had come before it (except for maybe TV Funnies, another odd mismatch of two disparate ideas, which also didn't play well in reruns).

That makes merchandise items specifically spawned by The U.S. of Archie incarnation exceptionally rare. Got (or know of) any items specifically merchandised from Archie's T.V. Funnies?

I bought a batch of comics from the 1950s that includes:


13 of the 14 Tom Corbett Space Cadet comics
all 4 Rocky Jones Space Ranger comics
11 Mystery in Space comics
35 Strange Adventures comics

I haven't, but, as I'm always looking (and discovering merchandise I've never seen before), I'll keep you posted!  :)

I won an auction for books 3-10 of the Archie Riverdale High series by Mike Pellowski.  I already had two of the books, but needed the rest.  I still need the first two books and there was a special as well.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there on the series, but I think there were only the 11 books.

If/when you get around to reading those, a comparison between the original novels and the "New Look Archie" digest comic adaptations (also written by Pellowski under a pseudonym) would be interesting. What was left out/added or changed (besides the titles) in the decade or more between the two versions?

I got Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest #270 & B & V Jumbo Comics Digest #267 & Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #296 at Unique.

I bought a full set recently on eBay, and, yes, everything I've come across online, indicates there were only 11 books.

That's a great series. Lots of stories written by Bob Bolling and Kathleen Webb, mostly with art by Doug Crane. Most (maybe all?) of the stories are told from the 1st-person perspective, so you really get a peek into Betty's mind to see how she thinks. I snap these up whenever I come across them (which isn't often, unfortunately, so I have nowhere near a complete run).

Question is, why hasn't there been a trade paperback collection of Betty's Diary in the "Archie Comics Presents" series (or of Veronica or Jughead, for that matter)? ACP drives me nuts sometimes.
