Speaking of Comic Book ads...

Between reading the posts about buying stuff from the back of comic books, and thinking about the impending demise of Hostess Twinkies, Cup Cakes, and Ho Hos, etc, my mind wandered back to Hostess ads that ran in comic books back in the 1970's. If I remember correctly, an example might be that the Joker was planning a bank robbery and Batman and Robin would distract and capture him with Twinkies. (A totally made up scenario, but you get the idea.) Am I remembering correctly? Does anyone have any examples to share? Also, I seem to remember ads featuring cartoon versions of athletes such as Johnny Bench and/ or Pete Rose... were these ads for Hostess, as well, or some other company?
