Announcing ... the addition of the Archies!

Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and gang have been favorites of BRB for many years. And now, with the publishing of the new BRBTV Report on the "Archie's Weird Mysteries" animated TV show, BRBTV happily welcomes the Archie Comics realm into its family of coverage.

Archie Andrews and his friends have been around for more than 60 years and have been a beloved American icon, holding fast to many good, honest values, as well as man good, honest fans! For decades, we've watched the often-awkward but always lovable Archie bumble his way into the hearts of girl-next-door Betty Cooper and self-involved-rich-chick Veronica Lodge. Their soda-built-for-three at Pop Tate's Chok'Lit Shoppe is the stuff of legends! And with the human eating machine Jughead Jones, the conceited prankster Reggie Mantle, big-lug Moose Mason, spindly Big Ethel and brainy Dilton Doiley, we've always had so much to enjoy in the Archies lore over the years. In 1999, DiC Entertainment released on PAX-TV the newest incarnation of Archies lore, the "Archie's Weird Mysteries" TV show. This animated series, following in a long line of Archie cartoons beginning in the 1960s, added a sort of "X-Files" slant to the teen gang. Each episode saw them investigating paranormal phenomena, with the fun tagline, "Things are getting weird in Riverdale."

BRBTV takes a close look at the "Archie's Weird Mysteries" TV show with its brand-new forum, the BRBTV Report. Not a book like the BRBTV reference book series, the BRBTV Report is a magazine-length feature story, journalistic in nature and complete with all sorts of fun facts about the show and its characters. "Archie's Weird Mysteries: A BRBTV Report" is the first of what will be a series of BRBTV Reports, debuting in the Amazon Shorts program.

BRBTV is happy to bring this fun feature to you, and we hope that this BRBTV Report, along with the Reports that follow, will help you enjoy even more what we believe are entertaining, valuable and worthwhile TV shows in our pop culture. We welcome your feedback, and even your own reminiscing about Archie and the gang(!), in the comments forum of this blog, or at
