Sugar Sugar by The Arches with lyrics
"Sugar, Sugar" is one of 16 animated music segments created to be shown on "The Archie Comedy Hour" on CBS-TV in 1969, and the song is included on The Archies' 2nd album, "Everything's Archie," also released in 1969. The single was released in 1969, backed with "Melody Hill," and quickly rose to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for 4 weeks, giving The Archies their first gold record ("Jingle Jangle" was their second gold record), and becoming the #1 song for 1969 according to Billboard magazine. While this music segment was originally created for broadcast on "The Archie Comedy Hour" in 1969, it also made it's way to the CBS-TV prime-time special "Archie's Sugar, Sugar - Jingle Jangle Show" in 1970, which was mostly a repeat of the earlier CBS-TV prime-time special "Archie And His New Pals" from 1969 with both music clips thrown in at the end. This clip was also broadcast on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1969. At this time, this music segment is only 1 of 4 music segments from "The Archie Comedy Hour" that have been found. The other found music segments are "Jingle Jangle," "You Know I Love You," and "Get On The Line". The other 12 music segments from this show are still missing and feared forever lost. The music segments from "The Archie Show" and "Archie's Funhouse" still survive. Only the segments from "Comedy Hour" are missing. For anyone interested, these are the "Comedy Hour" music segments that are still missing... "Melody Hill," "Bicycles, Roller Skates & You," "Hot Dog," "Inside Out - Upside Down," "Everything's Alright," "She's Putting Me Through Changes," "Whoopee Tie Ai A," "Nursery Rhyme," "Get On The Line (without the credits from "Archie & His New Pals)," "Senorita Rita," "Look Before You Leap," "Sugar And Spice," and "Archie's Party." If memory serves (it's been over 40 years), neither "Justine" nor "Who's Your Baby?" were ever made into animated segments for "Comedy Hour". This music clip was included in the "Archie's Funhouse" DVD boxset from Genius Products. While it was not a clip broadcast on "Archie's Funhouse", the boxset included some content from "The Archie Comedy Hour" as well. This music segment, along with the rest of the original Archies' cartoon material from Filmation, is currently owned by Classic Media, formerly Entertainment Rights. "Archie" is owned by Archie Comic Publications, Inc.
