Casper and the Boo Keepers (Hostess Ads #56)

On a site dedicated to making a wiki history of all things comics, comics ads should not be forgotten. Especially the ads for Hostess Fruit Pies, Twinkies, and other snacks. Starting in 1975, Marvel and DC heroes (and the Harvey characters!) spent seven years throwing Hostess snacks at a bizarre line of villains to stop their crimes. Although many of the villains were completely silly, they were created specifically for these ads, and in many cases, not even the names have been used again, since the ads stopped in mid-1982.

So I thought I'd show an ad here, and make a list of the comics I find it in, as I run across them. This list features: Casper and the Boo Keepers. This one wasn't on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page. I scanned it myself, which is why the scan is so much larger than usual. It's added to the page now.

Having falling behind on his boos, the Boo Keepers berate Ghostlee about his performance. Casper overhears him saying Hostess Fruit Pies make him want to hoo-ray instead of boo. The Boo Keepers scoff, but Casper challenges them to try it. Soon all the ghosts are hoo-raying, instead of boo-ing.
