Series Disc -- The Adventures of Archie Andrews
[SERIES-0001]
$5.00

For the first full-series disc, it was almost inevitable we'd do The Adventures of Archie Andrews, having been such good friends with Hal "Harlan" Stone, who performed the role of Jughead for almost a decade.

Archibald "Archie" Andrews, created in 1941 by Bob Montana, appears in an American comic book series published by Archie Comics. This radio series, The Adventures of Archie Andrews, was a direct spin-off of the comic strip. Originally heard on radio on a fifteen-minute daily show on the Blue Network on May 31, 1943 which lasted about four months, the show switched to Mutual for five months or so in 1944, and then after a year's absence returned to NBC from 1945 until September 5, 1953. All of the existing episodes are from the NBC period, and frankly for a show that ran about eight years, there are precious few of those episodes that survived. While a typical Saturday teen comedy, the character of Archie is so much a part of the culture that it rises above its station in our hearts and minds. We know these characters so well, it's almost like a visit with family. Ok, maybe the wacky family down the block, but still...

The episodes on this disk star Bob Hastings as the irrepressible Archie Andrews, and Harlan "Hal" Stone as the laconic Jughead Jones; Rosemary Rice and Gloria Mann complete the teen cast as Betty and Veronica - only the first episode here should have Doris Grundy as Betty and Charlie Mullen as Archie. The "formula" is common to wholesome yet funny situation comedies...there's a misunderstanding or a problem, everyone joins in to help, and pandemonium ensues. No matter how serious or grown-up you believe yourself to be, you simply can not help but get caught up in the silliness, so it's perfect for listening when you need a smile at the end of a particularly difficult or stress-filled day.

Since so much has been written about this series, I'm going to give the last word to my friend Hal Stone who wrote the definitive book on the subject, Aw...Relax, Archie! Relax!"

From the moment that the entire cast was assembled for our first "Archie" rehearsal, it was obvious that it was going to be a very pleasant experience. Being the youngest (at 13+), I was definitely made to feel like one of the "grown ups" and treated with respect and warmth by my fellow cast members. That same camaraderie existed between all the regular cast members and the program's writer, Carl Jampel, as well as the many directors we had over the program's nine-year lifespan...The bottom line: Everyone was a seasoned "pro."
