* FollowTheLeader: Franchise/ArchieComics knew a good setup when they had one. A story about a redheaded hero being fought over by a blonde and a brunette, while having a brunette rival and a quirky, dark-haired best friend.
** The comic itself underwent many [[ReTool retools]] in response to pop-culture trends. In 1968, due to the popularity of ''LaughIn'', the comic became a ''Laugh-In'' clone, even using catchphrases directly borrowed from the show.

Following {{Creator/Filmation}}'s success with ''WesternAnimation/TheArchieShow'' in 1968, Creator/HannaBarbera sought to develop its own Archie property. Since ''The Archie Show'' also produced a number of hit records by The Archies, ArchieComics revamped the ''Josie'' property to support similar crossover possibilities. Josie became the headliner of a band, Valerie, a new girl at school, was introduced as that band's new bassist, and Josie's series was retitled ''Josie and the Pussycats'' in late 1969. The animated ''WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussycats'' debuted in September of 1970.

''Josie and the Pussycats'' is the eventual title of a long-running ArchieComics feature starring the redheaded Josie. Josie was originally created by Archie mainstay Dan [=DeCarlo=] as the star of a proposed newspaper comic strip. She instead ended up becoming an ''Archie'' spinoff character, debuting in ''Archie's Pals and Gals'' #23 (Winter 1962-1963) shortly before getting her own title, ''She's Josie''.
