Archie's TV Funnies
In this edition, the Archie gang are at a TV control center where they bring popular newspaper comic strips to life via animation. The strips featured and their creators:
- Dick Tracy (Chester Gould)
- The Captain & The Kids (Rudolph Dirks)
- Nancy (Ernie Bushmiller)
- Moon Mullins (Frank Willard)
- The Dropouts (Howard Post)
- Alley Oop (V.T. Hamlin)
- Broom Hilda (Russell Myers)
- Smokey Stover (Bill Holman)
- Emmy Lou (Marty Links)
Voices of the comic strip stars include June Foray, John Irwin, Jayne Haime and Alan Oppenheimer.
A recurring storyline with the Archies in covering a story for their station was used in between the comics features. Several of these comic strips would be animated again in 1980 for Filmation's NBC show The Fabulous Funnies. Three features had been previously animated--Dick Tracy (UPA, 1961), Nancy (Terrytoons, 1942), and The Captain & The Kids (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1939). A two-episode pilot for Moon Mullins was produced by Cambria studios (makers of Clutch Cargo) but it never developed into a series.
