"I got the new Archie's Funhouse dvds in the mail today from Amazon (I had them sent overnight)...and they do feature the first appearance of Sabrina The Teenage Witch on TV as she has her first day at Riverdale! The first appearance of Sabrina is on the bonus TV special "Archie & His New Pals" which is on the third dvd in the set. Also included on the third disc are bonus Funhouse epsodes which were originally on "The Archie Comedy Hour" and they also feature a few guest appearances by Sabrina & her aunts & Salem The Cat!! The other two dvds in the set feature the regular Funhouse episodes which were basically comical silliness with Archie & the gang but lots of FUN!!They also include Jukebox which is a selection of music videos by The Archies including the music video of the Archies hit "Sugar Sugar" which ALSO featured Sabrina in the music video running a kissing booth and performing all sorts of neat magic on the guys as the song "Sugar Sugar" plays!I love this set and I cant wait until they release "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" next month on DVD!! Its something I have been waiting a long time for.The picture quality on this set as it was on the last Archie set released last year is really good. Im very happy with it. Also there is a documentry with the voice of The Archies included on the third dvd in the set as well....Pick it up!! If you loved Archie cartoons in the 70's or Sabrina The Teenage Witch cartoons in the 70's I think you will love these!!!"
Not what I expected

"What I failed to remember was that each year "The Archies" shows changed a lot. I was hoping to get some cartoons that maintained a story. Or even I enjoyed the year when Archie had Dick Tracy, Broom Hilda and other cartoons on. This particular season had neither. It was basically Laugh-In with the Archie characters. While these little skits that appear may of been funny at the time...today they appear as a bunch of dated short gags. I played the first episode for my daughter and even she lost interest before one episode was done. I wish I would picked the volume with Archie on the cover or even the Sabrina edition. Previous reviewers give the 5 stars and I write this review to give you a different view point. What you get here that may be a plus to some is you get more music from the Archies....myself I wanted the cartoons. This was a purchase I regret making even at less that $20."
Yes, it Is a Fun House

"Archie's version of "Laugh-in" is a whole series of episodes with rapid-fire one-liners. All tastefully done by the way, no dirt humor here. The video is sharp and clear and so is the audio.
The Archies perform three songs per episode which honestly don't have the high production quality of their earlier songs, but they're not bad at all. "Love Vibrations" however is a classic. I think one thing missing from this set is an audio CD of the show's songs. You know this collector will snap it up.
The bonus feature featuring Ron Dante is worth the price. He leaves no question unanswered about how he became "Archie" for Don Kirshner's music machine. The Archies' music was just as good as anyone's during this time of the late 60's and early 70's. They had top-notch session musicians, singers, and producers. Jeff Barry was their main songwriter and producer and yes, ladies & gentlemen, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. One mistake I noticed was the transpositioning of the names Jeff Barry and Andy Kim when they were superimposed over their images. Jeff is on the screen's left, Andy is on the right.
