Trivia / Josie and the Pussycats


  • Executive Meddling: Valerie owes her entire existence to this. As the comic was about to be retooled into one about a traveling band, Pepper was dropped from the comic at the request of higher-ups due to being too similar to student protesters and activists at the time. Valerie was then introduced, and the rest is history.
  • Follow the Leader:
    • Archie Comics 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 retools in response to pop-culture trends. In 1968, due to the popularity of Laugh In, the comic became a Laugh-In clone, even using catchphrases directly borrowed from the show.
