Not to mention the fact that though Archie's world isn't 100% realistic, it could easily be replicated in a life action kids show. Heck, not even that hard picturing the opening credits to the show over an Archie Gang song now. I don't know who would want it though, which is actually the problem of an Archie Cartoon Show.

Hey, you're right. Archie is a tweencom and always has been. Heck, it even has another key similarity in that it was always aimed at younger kids than the high school kids it portrays.
Okay though I'm not saying that Archie isn't still popular or anything considering it and it's series are still running strong, it isn't even the most sold Archie comic nowadays. The heyday of Archie has long since past and really, the only chance I see it getting a series (cartoon or life action) is if someone was interested in making a movie based off the Archie license, and that itself became popular enough to warrant extending the franchise. Otherwise I see it just being relegated to continue selling comics. These aren't the days of the 60's or 90's when people were more interested in making cartoon shows off of even moderatley popular franchises. You have to even have a lot of Nostalgia value or staying power or a strong franchise build to get cartoon shows if you aren't pushing an original idea now.
