If you've got the urge to spend your money, take a look at tonight's Stupid Comics!!

  1. Ah yes, the Hostess ads, where DC and Marvel's finest took on such fearsome foes as the Phoomie Goonies and Ralph G. Fake the Legal Eagle.

    I do remember Chip Away. I think Kenner took Michelangelo's remark "the sculpture is under that marble block, I just have to carve till I find it" quite literally. There is a modern variant on Chip Away, where you just drop the block into water and it fizzes away to reveal the toy (but it removes the "pretend you sculpted it" conceit).

  2. I didn't get to try a Twinkie until at least twenty years after I stopped reading these comics when I visited the US.

    It was not worth the wait.
