DeCarlo Rules: Plus the "Sixty Magical Stories" TP. About time they showed a little love for classic Sabrina, apart from Chilling Adventures...

Tuxedo Mark: I'm not impressed with the artwork. If they're going to revive Archie's Weird Mysteries, they should at least have the characters dress in their outfits from the show and make Archie's convertible red. Are those supposed to be Veronica and Jughead?

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.
