Aha! Caught You Kids With Snoopy Again! (Comic Ads #43)

Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.

I'd have loved one of these as a kid. As it was, I had a plain old electric toothbrush at some point, and I thought that was something special. Once again: remember that video games were not a common thing when I was a kid. An electric toothbrush took batteries or had to be plugged in, and whee! They did the brushing for you! Sweet! Eventually, parents kind of get tired of the noise they make though, and they "wear out" and disappear. At least, that's what I was told.

Whatever the case, here's a bunch of pictures of the Snoopy Power Toothbrush, and a cool Batman & Robin electric toothbrush set that came up in my search for Snoopy pics:

I swear, I really did try to not "go there" with this one, but come on now! That Batman and Robin version? Like, did someone not think it perhaps looks a little inappropriate? :P

There no left-handed child this time but the hand grasping Snoopy on top is.

(and I hate when they showcase something as being cordless in the adverts.)

@lykopis: They show the cord running to the doghouse, or cleverly hide it with word balloons. Yeah, the Batman/Robin one is a little strange. The thing that made me want to "go there" with this one was the title: "Aha! Caught you kids with Snoopy again!" Wth? Leave Snoopy alone! That's just nasty!

k -- I legitimately laughed out loud!

I don't know if I should be disappointed with myself or proud I didn't catch that.

Edited by cbishop

@lykopis: I think you should feel a little of both. ;)

@lykopis:

You nasty. Batman`s clearly touching Robins lower back.

Though...does look slighty homoerotic...

Posted by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: He is touching the lower back, but so low it's almost the butt. It does look weird.

Wisdom, you speak.

@lykopis:

You know that you`re wrong, and just don`t want to admit it. I know you.

Edited by cbishop

@lykopis: @kfhrfdu_89_76k: I think you're both wrong. The Bat-hand on Robin is not the most disturbing thing about this picture. It's the cord. From the back, it clearly goes into Robin's left leg, but from the front it looks like...

Not really. You have a filthy mind Cbish. Go get baptised, will ya? = P

Edited by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I beg your pardon- I didn't say anything dirty about it. I trailed off and you made your own assumptions. ...And I was baptised long ago :P

I fell to your trap. Soon, very soon...

YOU`LL FALL TO ONE OF MINE.

@lykopis:

Ah now, look what a bloody mess ya made! I`ll have ye beaten fer this!

Wait, it`s your screen. I don`t give a damn.

@cbishop:

Then you should be mildly suprised, EX.

Actually, it would be really surprising. None of my ex's ever claimed to like comics, and the only one who ever lived overseas was in London, not Finland. ;)

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

Yeah, that`s all just a ruse...we found ourselves another geek who writes all that stuff, for a payment. Coincidentally, he IS from Finland.

But anyway, wanted you to know, lover. Because right now, were draining your bank accounts of the meager amounts of cash they hold, as we type this. We also posted some "slightly" embarrassing stuff of you, all over the net. Including Youtube.

And soon we will evacuate ourselves to a habitable planet that other humans know nothing about. Then we shall continue to spread our priceless pandemonium across the galaxies! We are the Exquisitely Evil Exes!

THIHIHIHIHIHHIHHHIHIHIHIHIHIHHIHIHHIIIIIH!!!!!

Edited by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Your story gets thinner and thinner. Any true ex would know that:

  • It would cost them more to plan to steal my cash than they would get back.
  • Embarrassing photos/videos of me do not exist.
  • And of course, the Exquisitely Evil Exes need three more members before they have enough crew to pilot that ship, and I've (apparently) become chaste for the sake of the rest of the galaxy.

;)

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

We have a secret multi billionair financer, we take your money just to make your life more difficult, there ARE embarrassing photos of you and we hired a space ship crew. Oh yeah! Go exes!

(Embarrassing dance moves.)

Posted by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: lol...even I want to see these embarrassing photos. It'd be like seeing Bigfoot and a Yeti play chess.

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

Very "smart" of you to pretend they don`t exist.

Edited by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I never said they don't exist. I've just never seen them play chess. ;)

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

Because the lack the skills to-

Wait a moment.

...

Yeti just told us that what we said was racist. We apologise.

Posted by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: <begins setting up chess board> Can someone call Bigfoot in, please?

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

Bigfoot and Yeti don`t know how to play Chess. I was saying that before Yeti rudely blocked me.

Posted by cbishop

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Well...that's...disappointing. Considering how they've managed to elude conclusive human contact for so long, I was sure that they were highly intelligent creatures capable of mastering the game of chess.

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

It`s a surprising world.
