A few episodes made their way to Archie compilation DVDs just after the turn of the century and then the complete series was released in 2012. After a while on the shelves at Walmart, the discs were discontinued and resale prices swelled, peaking around the release of Netflix's "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina." A year later, Universal has finally gotten around to reissuing the set.
Sabrina and Salem are riding a broomstick across the new cover, but the DVDs include the same menus and transfers as the 2012 discs, which came out just before everything started getting HD-scanned. I'm not sure if the discs are overcompressed or if it's a result of the PAL transfer (I suspect it's a little of both), but there's a motion-blur whenever the characters are engaged in action. Otherwise, it's a perfectly adequate transfer, with a generally clear picture and pitchy mono sound in both English and Espanol. The character voices are a little off, but it's because the PAL version runs at a different frame rate, which speeds everything up very slightly.
Episodes are available to view as standalones or with a "Play All" selection that jams them all into a three-and-a-half-hour binge, compounding the compression issue. The main menu redundantly wails the theme song, the episode lists skip the titles of the second shorts, and the only extras are the first episode of "The Archie and Sabrina Surprise Package" and a gallery of production art. It's bizarre that they didn't include the primetime special "Archie and His New Pals," which set up the show's concept, but I suppose they wanted you to purchase a separate Archie set to see that bonus feature.
On one hand, it's nice to see that the show's back in circulation at an affordable price. On the other, it's an underwhelming release in an era of HD.
I was very disappointed that he wasn't on the rest of the series.
Archie and the gang are mainly on it and the groovy ghoulies take over almost all of the last disc.
Harvey's only a hit and miss basically on disc 1.
It shouldn't be called Sabrina the teenage witch if it's mainly about Archie and the gang and the groovy ghoulies.
Don't get me wrong, I like the Archie's, but this isn't their show.
I got annoyed with the Groovy Ghoulies.
It's like they were constantly experimenting on characters to put on the show.
Harvey shows up more often in the comics. :(
Harvey is one of my favorite characters.
I don't recommend it for Harvey fans unless you want to mainly be disappointed.
Sabrina made her first appearance in the ARCHIE'S MADHOUSE comic series and gained a fair amount of popularity, eventually spawning her own comic book. Filmation brought Sabrina to animation in the prime-time special ARCHIE AND HIS NEW PALS, and eventually spun off her own series after showcasing her as part of THE ARCHIE COMEDY HOUR. The resulting cartoons depict Sabrina as a resident of Riverdale and a student at Riverdale High, accompanied in her adventures by her boyfriend Harvey and her friends Spencer and Ophelia (who respectively serve Jughead and Betty functions to Harvey's Archie).
However, as our title says, Sabrina IS a witch, and therefore must keep her magical abilities a secret from the Riverdale denizens. Though witches are expected to hex people, the good-natured Sabrina often uses her powers in attempts to help others or solve problems, usually with disastrous results. Most of the plots revolve around Sabrina's attempts to juggle her witchly studies and her teenage life, featuring her magical cat Salem and her two aunts, the cantankerous Hilda and the kindhearted Zelda. There is also Cousin Ambrose, a sophisticated, somewhat bon-vivant warlock who is more sympathetic to Sabrina's teenhood and occasionally aids her in her adventures, serving as a mixture of the Dr. Bombay and Uncle Arthur characters from BEWITCHED. The ARCHIES crew makes regular appearances, with Reggie continuously (and unsuccessfully) trying to out Sabrina as a witch to the rest of the gang.
And of course, there are the GROOVIE GOOLIES. Yep, this set not only has all of the Sabrina episodes from her own series, but ALSO the episodes in which everyone's favorite gang of maladroit monsters made their FIRST appearances. Mixing the Goolies, the Archies and Sabrina together creates a special blend of comic chaos, and these episodes do not disappoint. As a special feature, the set includes the first episode of THE ARCHIE AND SABRINA SURPRISE PACKAGE, in which Archie, Sabrina and the gang work together to solve a mystery at Riverdale. (Will this series be a future DVD release? Only time will tell.)
The set is colorfully packaged, though not in a clear slipcase like the other ARCHIES releases, and the artwork is of the usual excellent standard. The episodes appear to be sourced from the best materials, showing clear pictures and few signs of aging. The DVD holder is a bit difficult to operate at first (the first two discs are overlapped, placing the click-tabs on the sides rather than in the middle), so examine carefully rather than tear into it.
Pick up this set if you're an ARCHIES or SABRINA fan, and pair it with the GROOVIE GOOLIES set for the right mix of supernatural Saturday-Morning silliness. You'll see her tug her ear... and you'll see your blues disappear. Count on it.
