Although a staunch proponent for an asexual Jughead Jones, the actor who portrays him on Riverdale, Cole Sprouse, now finds his character in a blossoming relationship with Betty Cooper, Archie’s girl next door. Brought together in their search for Jason Blossom’s killer and leaning on one another in their times of need, Jughead and Betty are now a couple.
During a recent visit to the Riverdale set, reporters spoke with Sprouse about his take on Jughead’s relationship with Betty.
“It’s important to remember that though Betty and Archie when they were younger were kind of this cute couple, Jughead, Betty and Archie were the three childhood friends. So Betty knows Jughead probably just as well as Archie does in certain ways and she is also this sort of nostalgic force of what was once morally just. I do believe Jughead is just absolutely obsessed with what was once Riverdale, and Betty represents this morality and purity that he associates to this more Peter Pan-like childhood version of Riverdale. He finds great comfort in that, and becomes easily accessible and resonates with him.”
Question is, will Jughead’s idealized sense of Betty and her representation of the Riverdale of old be shattered as season one winds toward the finale? Only time will tell.

Saturday Morning Cartoons That Could Make Successful Movies
If the Smurfs or Transformers movies have taught us anything, old Saturday morning cartoons are the new grade-A meat for the movie studios. Cartoons can be turned into animated movies, just look at the success of the Spongebob Squarepants movies, but they can also make successful live-action adaptations. Well, with Power Rangers coming out soon, an idea so silly it might as well have been a Saturday morning cartoon it’s time for studio execs to take a look at some of these hidden classics. There’s clearly a lot of money to be made adapting beloved children franchises.
I want to point out a key word to all of you guys in case you get mad at my list. I don’t necessarily know if all of these cartoons could make good movies, but I’m pretty sure they could turn a profit and be considered successful. Some of these can be enjoyable and they’re ones you might not necessarily expect. If I forgot about your favorite Saturday morning cartoon, head to the comment section and let me know!
