Archie's Fun House

Show Summary

Archie's Funhouse was a Saturday morning cartoon show that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1973. The show was the sequel to the previous season's one-hour Archie Saturday morning series "The Archie Comedy Hour" (which was one of the biggest hits for the 1969-1970 Saturday morning season). "Archie's Funhouse", of course, featured Archie and his pals (Jughead, Reggie, Veronica, Betty, Hot Dog and others) as on-stage hosts of skits, jokes, and music. The program also had live-action kids as the audience for the show, responding to the antics of the Archie gang. Actually, the concept from the show came from 2 segments that were first shown on the previous season's "The Archie Comedy Hour". They were the "Funhouse" and "Side Show" segments. On "Archie's Funhouse", these segments featured puns, jokes, and skits. For these segments, Filmation Studios hired writers from the hit NBC primetime show "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" (the show that inspired these segments) to write for these segments. In addition, the show also featured "The Giant Jukebox", playing hit songs from The Archies. There were 3 song segments per show with on-stage performances by The Archies. Hit songs included "Sunshine", "Love Vibrations", and "Comes The Sun". "Archie's Funhouse" started off as a one-hour show on Saturday mornings from 1970 to 1971, then it was trimmed to a half-hour shown on Sunday mornings from 1972 to 1973.moreless
