In retrospect, TV's animated ARCHIE from Filmation is pretty bad with annoying music, ancient gags and memorably bad voice-casting that included Dallas McKennon as Arch and Howard Morris as Jughead. In the tradition of THE MONKEES, the former producer of that series had songs recorded, this time by an anonymous studio group that couldn't argue with him. The group included Ron Dante and Andy Kim and with songs inserted in each and every episode, the novelty album release seen here sold well, even generating a minor hit with the bubble gummy "Bang-Shang-A-Lang." "Sugar, Sugar," however, from the second (of four I believe) albums, became a massive worldwide hit and beat out the Beatles to be the biggest selling record of the year in the year of Woodstock!
The show itself is cringe-worthy to me these days.
