Tuxedo Mark: And there hasn't been a novel (probably the cheapest thing to create) in over a year.

Tuxedo Mark: They might not think it's something that'll make them any money. Heck, their new original graphic novel, The Riverdale Diaries 2: Starring Veronica, isn't exactly setting the charts on fire (in any format).

DeCarlo Rules: You'd think consumers could at least get some kind of ARCHIE 80th Anniversary Special (and I don't mean reprints). It's practically criminal. Can you imagine Marvel or DC letting their 80th Anniversary slide by without some one-shot celebrating it?

DeCarlo Rules: Yet another variation on Little Archie, like The New Archies. It;s never an animated version of the basic classic Archie, high school sitcom.

Tuxedo Mark: There was that aborted animated series, "It's Archie", which would have been made by the same group that did the latest Sabrina animated series. It would have featured the gang in elementary school.

DeCarlo Rules: Right -- I was thinking specifically of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie... the core group. But when you said "Riverdale" it made me think that an animated spinoff of the TV series is actually the greater likelihood now, not some comedy-based show.

Tuxedo Mark: Well, there was "Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch" last decade. Or did you mean something based in Riverdale?

DeCarlo Rules: I can hardly believe there hasn't been an another Archie-based animated series in 20 years, since the 1999-2000 Archie's Weird Mysteries.

Archie's Weird Mysteries Cartoon

This is a great cartoon.  The animation is very well done.  However, I was very disappointed to discover that the DVD does not include closed captioning.  This is particularly difficult to understand b/c the cartoon must have been closed captioned when it first aired in 1999.  Why wouldn't these DVDs be closed captioned?

I believe closed captioning is done by the network and is not on the original master tapes. This was evident back in 1989 with cartoons like Captain N: The Game Master. NBC airings were closed captioned; later syndication airings weren't.

Probably because it's a Mill Creek Entertainment product. They are legendarily low-budget, no-frills on all their DVD releases.
