Archie's Weird Mysteries is an American animated children's television program, based on the successful Archie comics. The series premise revolves around a Riverdale High physics lab gone awry, making the town of Riverdale a "magnet" for B-movie style monsters.
The show is distributed as meeting the FCC's educational and informational children's programming ("E/I") requirements, and is used by commercial stations in the United States to meet this guideline. Produced by DIC Entertainment, the show was initially shown mornings on the PAX network, often with infomercial bookending the program. The following season, its repeats were syndicated to television stations throughout the US, as a way to comply with mandatory E/I regulations.
The theme song was written and performed by Mike Piccirillo. Musical underscore composers were Mike Piccirillo and Jean-Michel Guirao. The Riverdale vampires story arc episodes were put together and released on VHS as Archie and the Riverdale Vampires.
An ashcan comic book tie-in also titled Archie's Weird Mysteries was published in 1999, leading to an on-going, regular-sized series (also titled Archie's Weird Mysteries) in February 2000. "Weird" was dropped from the title with issue 25 (signaling the end of the tie-in with the TV show) and the series was canceled with issue 34 after 10 issues of doing straight mystery stories with no supernatural or science-fiction components.
