Archie Andrews
Teenage Situation Comedy (1943 - 53)

Archie AndrewsArchie Andrews was a direct spin-off of the popular teenage comic strip created by Bob Montana. Radio was successful with many comic characters, so putting another popular comic "on radio" was a natural. This show was one of the first wanting to win a teenage audience by doing a situation comedy show completely for them, and with them in the audience at the broadcasts.

Blondie was a flapper, and Dagwood was a racoon-coated collegiate back in the roaring 20's, but Archie and his pals continued success was very much an outgrowth of the post WWII baby boom. It was the classic American suburban kid with his pals, at home and especially, at school. All the well-known characters of the comic book are here in the radio adventures: Archie, his best pal, Jughead, Veronica, nemesis Reggie, and Betty - who is in and out of love with Archie, almost on a daily basis. Of course, Archie's parents are on the scene, and we can't forget dreaded Mr. Weatherbee, Archie's High School Principal.The show was done "before a live audience" as they say in today's sit-coms, and the teenagers who thronged the show were excited and boisterous, to say the least. The kids still love Archie Comics, and Archie and all his friends are still going strong after all these yearsArchie the Comic

Our Miss Brooks isa radio situation comedy filled with High School hijinks. For more family comedy fun,please see Blondie, Aldrich Family, Ozzie and Harriet, The Harold Peary Show, Life of Riley, and The Phil Harris and Alice Faye Show.
