Premise: The high-school high jinks of Bob Montana's comic-strip characters played out in this cartoon, the first of many adaptations. The Riverdale gang aired nearly continuously on CBS (under five other titles including `The U.S. of Archie') until 1976. In 1977, they took up residence on NBC as part of the `New Archie Sabrina Hour,' which begat the brief `The Bang-Shang Lalapalooza Show.' They resurfaced on NBC as preteens in 1987's `The New Archies', and then as adults in a live-action 1990 TV-movie.
