Indexer Notes

This story was made to coincide with Archie becoming a public company: it's an attempt to give readers "a chance to get in on the world of Archie" by telling them about the Archie merchandising push and encouraging them to invest in the company.

Many of the marketing campaigns mentioned in this story didn't last long, or never happened at all, a victim of contraction in the comic book business and the cancellation of the Archie TV cartoons. In particular, Archie mentions several television projects that were pitched to the networks but never produced, including a prime-time comedy/musical Archie TV series and cartoons based on "That Wilkin Boy," "Madhouse Glads," and "Li'l Jinx."

In this printing the only credit is Harry Lucey, all other credits from the index of the original printing.

Synopsis
The male members of The Archies get their draft notices just before their big peace rally. Their hippie friend Clyde urges them to burn their draft cards, but Archie explains that though they oppose the war, breaking the law and rioting won't bring about social change. At the peace rally, Archie delivers the message that if the new generation works together, it can solve America's problems ("bigotry, pollution, and a senseless war") without violence.
Reprints
Keywords
draft; hippie; Vietnam War

Indexer Notes

The final caption, which says that The Archies "are still a year away from being drafted but this is the way it would have happened," leaves it ambiguous as to whether this is an "imaginary" story or not.

A rare example of Archie expressing political views, both against the Vietnam War and against violent protests.

The title of the story comes from a song released by The Archies on the album "Sunshine," one of the most serious and ambitious songs by the group. It was a hit overseas but failed to catch on in America. The final panel has the group singing the actual song, though with the word "God" changed to "got."

Incorrectly listed as originally appearing in Life With Archie #93.

Genre

Characters

Synopsis
When Betty and Ronnie comment on how lazy Betty's cat Caramel is, Caramel reveals that she has the ability to talk to them (but only while they're still small children). Caramel tells them the story of her life: she had three kittens and lived with them in an old abandoned house. When the house was destroyed, the four cats set off on a journey across America, where Caramel found homes for each of her children -- and almost lost her own life in the process.
Reprints

Indexer Notes

As Caramel promises in the story itself, this is the only time Caramel ever talks to anyone.

The story is also an example of how Bolling changed the designs depending on the type of story: while the girls are drawn in a cartoony style, Caramel is drawn more realistically than usual, and the adults are drawn in a realistic style.
