Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

Batman and Twinkieless Gotham City

This is clearly the Adam West version of Batman in the Hostess ads.  I can practically hear Burgess Meredith’s “wak-wak-wak” as the Penguin announces his fiendish plan to hypnotize Twinkie delivery men.

Anyone have stats on which character appeared in the most Hostess ads?  Right now, from what I’ve managed to collect over the past couple months, Batman is running away with it, though Spider-Man and the Hulk aren’t far behind.

About briandettmann

Brian Dettmann started collecting comics in the summer of 1984 when he and a friend stopped by the Waldenbooks and Paper Tiger bookstores in the Fox River Mall in Oshkosh, WI. Despite moving to comic/civilization deprived eastern Vermont a couple months later, the two issues purchased that day led to a lifetime of reading and collecting comics (not to mention spending untold amounts of money). Now in his early-40s Brian lives in north Texas with his (unbelievably patient) wife, three (non-comic reading) children and varying amounts of dogs. He still reads comics, but doesn’t consider himself much of a collector anymore. Brian has been writing and drawing comics almost as long as he’s been reading them. His current strip, “Kids ‘n Dogs,” premiered February 2008 in The Chronicle, a great weekly newspaper published in Glens Falls, NY, where it can be read (nearly) every Thursday.
