A Dumb Trivia Question For Tuesday

We all know that in Archie Comics, Archie's best pal is a slightly eccentric character known as Jughead Jones. The publishers of these comics have officially given him a real name, though only his mother ever uses it in the comic strips. What is Jughead's real name? It is every bit as eccentric as he is.

My grandfather owned a carryout and he had a whole rack of magazines and comic books. I would go down to his store, grab Richie Rich, Archie and Spiderman and read for HOURS on the cases of bottled pop in the stockroom! LOL

ebyjo and ab5sy: It is Forsythe Pendleton Jones.

lp you can download that song at http://www.archiecomics.com/pops_shop/pops_shop.html

As an aside
Mr Weatherbee's first name is Waldo and Miss Grundy's first name is Geraldine. Big Moose's last name is Mason (to my knowledge he has not been given a "real" name) and "his girl" Midge's last name is Klump. To my knowledge, Big Ethel does not appear to have been given a last name.

Shoprat-I am pretty positive that he was Forsythe Pendleton Jones III, because his dad was named Forsythe Pendleton Jones Jr.

Big Ethel did have a last name, it was Ethel Muggs, unless they changed it.

ebyjo I am not questioning you in fact I acknowledged you were right and ab5sy were right (though he had a typo). It's just that I never read the names of Jughead's parents anywhere (or Reggie's parents for that matter) so I was unaware of it.

Thanks for the info on Ethel.

Jughead's mom was Gladys. She had the same nose as him!!! Real "olive oil" looking woman...very thin.

Archie's parents were named Fred and Mary Andrews. I never remember reading about Reggie's mom. His dad's name was Ricky Mantle.

Sorry, I just read them a lot!!! LOL.
