Finished watching the rest of ARCHIE'S WEIRD MYSTERIES. Towards the end of the series there are a couple of 3-episode story arcs, one with Veronica getting a sunstone pendant and thinking that she's The Ender, destined to save the world by preventing the Eternal Night of the Vampires. This introduced a character named Scarlet Hellsing, who also appeared in some issues of the comic book series based on the animated series. The other 3-episode arc involves a time-travelling villain named Vinnie Wells, who steals a time-device invented by Dilton (don't ask how, but Vinnie's whole motivation stems from a desire to mooch money to buy nachos). The final episode of the 3 also features a time-travelling adult Archie Andrews, and a wilderness scout (in the year 1699) named Bob Montana who found (and thus founded) Riverdale (with some help from time-travelling Archie), as well as an homage to the very first Archie story where a 12 year-old Archie tries to show off by balancing on top of his bicycle seat, and meets Betty for the first time. Without a doubt, this was the best-written episode of the entire series. I almost expected Marshal January McAndrews of the Time Police to show up to help put an end to Vinnie's chrono-meddling. It very much felt like a plot from Jughead's Time Police, mixed with a little of the multiverse stuff from Life With Archie magazine.

Since then I've been going back and forth (one disc at a time) between the original SABRINA THE TEEN-AGE WITCH (1969, Filmation) and THE GROOVIE GOOLIES, which was an additional half-hour program created to expand Sabrina's show into an hour-long block when it spun off from THE ARCHIE COMEDY HOUR where it first appeared, in the same way that The Archie Comedy Hour was an expansion of the earlier half-hour THE ARCHIE SHOW (1968). On DVD, the shows were released at different times by different companies, each as a 3-disc set (16 half-hour episodes per series). As with the Archie cartoons appearing on The Archie Comedy Hour, SABRINA AND THE GROOVIE GOOLIES re-ran the earlier Sabrina animated episodes from The Archie Comedy Hour, while adding the new Groovie Goolies cartoon episodes (in which Sabrina also appears, but as a distinctly minor supporting character). The weird thing is, although the Goolies were an original creation of the Filmation Studios writers and animators, the copyright is still in the name of Archie Comic Publications (1970), which makes it odd to me that ACP never ever used the characters (not even once) in their comics. For some reason, Filmation felt that it was necessary to hyphenate the word "teen-age" in the title of Sabrina's cartoon, as opposed to the more common spelling "teenage". One of the songs from the Groovie Goolies was "Chick-A-Boom" which was later re-recorded by Dick Monda, who did the songs for the entire series, under the pseudonym "Daddy Dewdrop" and became a big hit (although now mostly forgotten, as are most one-hit wonders).
