The entire Archie’s Weird Mysteries series was released on DVD.
For those of you unfamiliar with Archie’s Weird Mysteries, the show is basically about a campy cast of characters not unlike the one from Saved by the Bell…
…stuck in a small town that doubles as the Hellmouth-happy Sunnydale…
...fighting B-movie monsters all the while.
Just replace “killer klowns” with “parasitic potatoes,” and you have the plot of the first-ever AWM episode.
Yeah. It’s that epic!
This show originally aired back in 1999-2000. Before then, the only thing I was obsessed with more than Archie comics was supernatural horror, so you better bet I faithfully watched a cartoon that managed to splice both obsessions. More than a decade later, having learned that the entire series—forty episodes in all—was getting a DVD release at long last, you better bet even more that I snatched myself up a copy so I can relive this gem of a cartoon anytime I please.
