Jeff of Siftin reports that Hostess Pudding Pies have returned. Think Hostess Fruit Pies, only with chocolate or vanilla pudding filling. Jeff found only choco-filled ones. (Web searches make it appear that the pies have been back for a while, but I sure haven't seen them in Seattle stores.)
They don't, however, look as good as the chocolate-coated, vanilla cream-filled Pudding Pies depicted in this 1980s commercial. Nice clothes, Dweebie Eighties Kids. And who doesn't want to smack the obnoxious sister?
Also, do not confuse them with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pudding Pies. That is a whole different kettle of radioactive nuclear pudding on the half-shell.
Jeff also has an awesome roundup of ABC's Saturday morning kids' TV lineup for 1974. "Korg: 70,000 B.C."? Who in the what, now? I not only don't remember watching that show, but I don't remember ever even hearing about it. I bet there was a lot of grunting and wearing of animal skins, though. And I also bet any on-location shooting was filmed at Vasquez Rocks. (All the little chicks with the crimson lips are goin' Vasquez Rocks! Vasquez Rocks!)
