Meet the New Archies! -- Artwork by Stuffed Animal

You know about my friend Stuffed Animal and his original Archie Comics-inspired cartoons. He has been expanding his personal brand to include the Archies while moving beyond the Archies, if you get what I mean.

It seems like Bree Spellman has grown beyond her "teenage witch" years and has created Witch Queen Recording Studios. Among Witch Queen's major projects was the soundtrack to "Say Goodbye to Riverdale."


Did I mention "Say Goodbye to Riverdale"? It turns out that a movie musical about the Archies was written based on Betty's own biography! You need to check out the movie poster and the movie casting:


Reviews were mixed about the script itself, but the music was well received.

That prompted Bree Spellman to reach out to Alexander Cabot to initiate a nationwide search for the New Archies! Can you imagine Bree, Salem the Cat, and Nero doing their best imitations of Simon Cowell?? You have got to check this out:


Hard choices were made and eventually the New Archies were picked: Garcy BriseƱo on guitar!  Donna Dante on bass!  Frankie Fujiyama on drums!  Mal Hypster on tambourine!  Toby Maxx on sax!  Rikki Ninja on keyboards!  Lead vocals by Donna, Garcy and Mal!  Managed by Alexander Cabot!  Produced by Sabrina at Witch Queen Recording Studios!



I guess Nero was totally behind Donna Dante and insisted on her inclusion within the band. Who knew that my poodle has so much power??

I look forward to learning more about the New Archies! Thanks Stuffed Animal!

Jon,

Thanks for sharing the continuing Archies saga with your blog patrons . . . you know, Nero is a major mover and shaker in the 2030s. It's no exaggeration to say that he is the Simon Cowell of that era, although Salem the Cat is much nastier at auditions than Nero is. Still, if puppy doesn't like the way you sing, you WILL get teeth marks on your legs.
