The Ghoulies are officially coming to Riverdale! All Archieverse nerds rejoice! Just in case you haven’t been watching Gingerdale, That Hashtag Show’s Riverdale after show, we mentioned back in the beginning of season 2 that they would be making an appearance.
If you remember, back when Jughead started going to Southside High, Tony Topaz warned him of their rival gang.
“Here in the cafetorium, Ghoulies sit over there. Rival gang, drug dealers, street racers, rumors of cannibalism. Don’t ask.” – Toni Topaz
But, who are they really? In the Archieverse the Groovie Goolies were a spin off of Sabrina The Teenage Witch (which was a spinoff of the Archie Show).The Goolies are a group of classic horror-film monsters residing at Horrible Hall (a haunted boarding house for monsters) who sing pop-songs each episodes. However, I don’t think that’s the version of the Goolies we’ll be getting on Riverdale, but I think it’s a safe bet to say there will be nods to names.With the Black Hood storyline, hopefully, wrapping up it seems like the Rival Ghoulie Gang is a natural turning point for Season 3 next villain.
What do you think? Are you ready for the Ghoulies? Do you wish they were more like the Groovey Goolies? Make sure to comment below and let me know!
