Synopsis
On the planet Venus, a Venusian named Herbnik invents the BaBongos, and plays music that is unacceptable to his people. He decides to leave Venus and travels to Earth, where Little Archie saves his life by getting him a drink of ammonia. Little Archie then sets up a meeting between Herbnik and the talented talent agent Mr. Greenback Klutchum, who turns Herbnik into an Earth-wide musical star. But when humans start copying Herbnik's music, Earthlings reject him in favor of musicians who look like them. He returns to Venus where his singing makes him acceptable again.

Indexer Notes

A combination of science-fiction and satire of the music business. Herbnik's musical downfall is an obvious reference to the copying of African-American music by white performers in the late '50s.

Little Archie has to make a speech in class about the history of Riverdale, but he can't find out anything interesting about the town, either from a book or from other people.

But that night, when he and Spotty go for a walk past Carson's Creek, a strange but friendly old man appears to tell Little Archie some fascinating facts about what that creek has meant to Riverdale and America -- and he even throws in a bit of juicy gossip.
