The New Archie and Sabrina Hour

$104.00

The New Archie and Sabrina Hour is the seventh and final animated series featuring Archie Comics characters under the Filmation banner. The series premiered on NBC in September, rebroadcasting segments from The Archie Show, as well as brand-new segments featuring Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Fred Silverman, who had ordered The Archie Show for CBS in 1968, had just taken over as head of programming for NBC, and was hoping that the show would jumpstart NBC’s Saturday morning lineup, just as The Archie Show had done for CBS. The show’s format featured three segments per episode: a 15-minute one, a 30-minute one, and another 15-minute one—with the segments separated by songs and the first segment invariably featuring and emphasizing Sabrina.

Low ratings caused the hourlong format to be shelved by October. The show was retooled, then divided into separate 30-minute shows: Archie’s Bang Shang Lollapalooza Show featured Archie’s Gang solving mysteries around Riverdale, while Superwitch featured Sabrina solving mysteries using her powers; each show featured one song per episode. The low ratings continued, however, and all three shows were gone by the spring of 1978—thus ending the Archie Comics/Filmation partnership.

Product Availability

Please note that a product being listed on our website does not necessarily mean it is in stock and readily available for order. Our catalog is built as a reference for our customers, while we do our best to sync our in-stock items on our website. The items that are not released yet, or not out on DVD / Blu-ray are indeed unavailable, and that is what we would tell our customers if the requests ever come in.

Our aim is to build a comprehensive listing of movies and TV shows available to date.

Since, we do not take payments online at this time, there is 0% risk in placing order for movies you like on our website. Our representative will get in touch with the customer with the availability of the items when an order is placed.

Notice and Takedown policy

Best Effort Policy

Should an item be unavailable, we would inform you if it was possible to provide an on-Demand DVD-R version of the requested item, but we offer no guarantees. Many DVD stores now offer MOD service, and so do we to keep a competitive edge. We would not make any profit out of such sale. The price of the items would only cover the operational / raw material / shipping costs; and would be sold for personal use only.

Processing

Our processing time is 1-2 days for in-stock items for domestic orders. For MOD requests, processing time could be up to 1 week on average. We do our best to fulfill orders as quickly as we can.
