The New Archies is an American animated television series produced by DiC Entertainment, based upon the characters by Archie Comics. The series, originally produced for NBC's Saturday morning schedule and broadcast in 1987, depicted the characters of Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Jughead Jones, Reggie Mantle, and other students of Riverdale High School as pre-teens in junior high.
Archie produced an identically named and themed comic book series that ran alongside the animated series.
In the series, Veronica uses the dialect of an archetypal valley girl. In the animated series produced by Filmation and the radio show, she had a southern accent. Dilton Doiley did not appear on The New Archies, and was replaced by an African American child named Eugene. Eugene's girlfriend Amani was also introduced in The New Archies, as was Archie's dog, Red.
