  • show Description
  • The most recent attempt to bring Archie to the small screen, this show revolved around a school newspaper column written by Archie, appropriately dubbed the title of the show. As Archie writes about the mysteries of the universe, weird things keep happening in Riverdale, and it's up to the gang to solve each dillema as it happens. The show's cast, discluding the regular adults, is mainly limited to the primary five Archie characters (being Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, and Reggie Mantle), and employs Dilton Doiley whenever there is need for the help of a genius. Other Archie teens who made appearances on this show were Moose Mason, Ethel Muggs, and making their first appearances (finally!) on any Archie show, Midge Klump, Chuck Clayton, and Nancy Harris.moreless

    • n/a: n/a
      The agents X and Y are obvious references to X-Files and Men In Black. Their names are just like the naming scheme from MIB and at one point they use a neuralyzer (bright flash) type device to distract Archie while they sneak away from him. The fact that one agent is female and the other male makes it similar to X-Files but more importantly in the scene where the agents capture Jughead you can hear a parody of the X-Files theme music playing in the background.

    • Spider-man The metallic arms that Dr. Arachnid have sticking out of his back are similar to the ones used by the Spider-man villian, Doc Octopus.

    • Nightmare On Elm Street The girls getting attacked in their dreams is a reference to the 1984 horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street.

    • E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial When the alien is found, Betty refers to the movie when suggesting they hide it from federal agents. E.T. was a 1982 movie about a young boy finding an alien and his attempts to help the alien return home.

    • The New Archies This episode bears many similaities to an episode of The New Archies series titled "Incredible Shrinking Archie". Like this episode, Archie and Jughead are shrunken and struggle to find a means to return to normal size before the effects are permanent.

    • 2001: A Space Odyssey:

      The Stanley 9000 is a parody to the HAL 9000, the evil computer that tried to kill all the people on a spaceship in the sci-fi film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
