characters battling foes with tasty Hostess snacks! These were among
the funniest and most imaginative ads ever

all the work but they don't get any Hostess snacks?
Aquaman and the Space Capsule - Once again the porpoises are
doing all the work. Shame on you Aquaman.
Aquaman in Dirty Beach-Dirty beaches,
underwater creatures and twinkies. Looks like a job for Aquaman!
Aquaman in the Ice Age - Watch Aquaman
battle a living iceberg. Personally I think this ad would have been
better for Hostess Snoballs but that is just me.
in Pirate's Gold - If you are looking for cool pirates, look
elsewhere. Sorry, no Jack Sparrow.

always thought when Mera was away from Aquaman, she was hanging out with

Betty Crocker and others. OK, they really are not in it, but they

dog suit. Very sad day in Batman's career.
