Archie's TV Funnies is a Saturday morning cartoon animated series produced by Filmation which appeared on CBS from September 11, 1971, to September 1, 1973.[1] The series starred Bob Montana's Archie characters, including Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Jughead Jones.

Archie's TV Funnies is the fourth incarnation of the Archie cartoon shows, which began in 1968 as The Archie Show and was then retitled The Archie Comedy Hour in 1969 and Archie's Funhouse in 1970.[2]

This was the first show in the popular series to move away from the series' earlier successful formula of comedic segments and musical segments performed by The Archies musical group. Archie's TV Funnies would each week feature Archie Andrews and his friends running a local television station (which bore a close resemblance to the Filmation studios) which would feature short animated adaptations of several classic newspaper comic strips. A typical episode would start with one of the gang reporting on a story that was occurring in Riverdale that day, then several of the animated strips would be shown to the viewing audience as the reporter continued to report the story, and the episode would then conclude with the entire gang appearing at the end of the story. Although the series ran on CBS for two years, it was replaced in 1973 with Everything's Archie which returned the series to its more familiar format.

Some of the above featured comic strips were later adapted again as part of Fabulous Funnies, another Filmation production.
