''Rupert's Weird Mysteries'' Title by CCB-18 ''Rupert's Weird Mysteries'' Title by CCB-18
After uploading most of my various Rupert/Archie show parodies, I came up with a parody of the last cartoon series Archie did (I think, I don't count Riverdale as it's not meant for kids); Archie's Weird Mysteries.

Face it, Rupert's adventures are a lot like AWM; travelling through time and space, visiting strange and magic lands, finding mystic treasures, meeting aliens and tackling bad guys from poachers to naughty goblins along the way...and he was only 10 years old(!)

PLOT
Rupert's a bit older now from when the Nelvana series left him, preferably in his early teens, and he's writing for Nutwood's local newspaper (he was possibly looking for a job and a travelling reporter took interest in one of his stories, I'm not sure), but soon Rupert was writing his adventures down for a column in the newspaper - course, no one outside of Nutwood (aside from a few of Rupert's non-Nutwood friends, like the Pirates of Rocky Bay, Captain Binacle and even Francis of Sandy Bay) believed them to be real. But before long, Rupert ran out of stories and looked like he was in danger of loosing his job...

...but then very mysterious things began to happen in Nutwood (and only in Nutwood, mind you...maybe just as far as the edge of Nutchester or even wherever Rupert goes) and soon Rupert's article is saved as he solves these mysteries and everything is back to normal as it can in Nutwood, with Rupert signing off on his column each time "...in a little village called Nutwood".

(Though while some of these mysteries are based on the ones Archie encountered, Rupert won't be dealing with Giant Cockroaches, Mutant Bees, Alien Potatoes, evil dream-based girls, sewer monsters, virus-endued computer games, obsessed-enchanted transport and the like. More likely he'll be tackling mysteries based on the stories in his annuals that never got televised in the cartoon series)

NOTE: This was the closest text I could find using my MS Publisher programme to make it resemble the AWM title page. I know it doesn't look the same, but it was the best I could do....

What about a Scooby-Doo parody?

I remember Rupert Bear as well. Yes, one series of his featured a barracuda, a mermaid, two sharks and King Neptune (probably) in one episode and pirates in another (episode not series) while another series featured this tune:

I suppose Rupert's also like a Western, animal, junior Sinbad because of his adventures.

Yes to the former link. It ran for 5 Seasons, but was made in America (probably to give it a certain twist on it, like Disney did with Winnie-the-Pooh as his stories weren't as familiar to the Americans as they were to the British).

The second one was English-made, and used images and the couplets from the actual Rupert annual stories.
