Even better news for your Friday afternoon is that we have an early look at a sequence from the upcoming episode that’s sure to have you laughing your way into the the weekend. The creative team over at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is taking aim at the classic “Archie” comics and their characters in this clip, with the added twist that comes courtesy of The CW’s Riverdale.

Of course, Archie / Riverdale isn’t the only pop culture icon on tap for Season 9. Parodies of other cartoon favorites like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Smurfs, Peppa Pig (!), Mulan, Captain Planet and more will also be arriving this season. The midseason premiere of Robot Chicken arrives this Sunday at 11:30pm on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, but you can get a glimpse of the insanity to come with our clip.
