Gone and ForgottenWeen Presents ... PUMPERNIK

It's horror in an Archie vein with this pick, Captain Pumpernik, from Archie's Mad House. Yeah. He really caught on, did Pumpernik. Remember how you used to tell your mom that you'd positively die if you didn't get a Pumpernik lunchbox? Remember the Pumpernik balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? Oh yeah ... Pumpernikamania...

So all that stuff they say about drug use in the Sixties is apparently true.

Aw, don't knock the li'l guy. I'm sure it likewise sucks on toast to read today, but I'm forever hunting a one-shot back-up feature called "Batty." Batty was a ugly little bat dressed like a certain popular TV camp-humor show (think Adam West as drawn by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth). Batty was always out to perform some grand criminal act, but accidentally saving the day, much to his chagrin. His sidekick was a mug-faced hornet (green, of course).

I can't remember what comic it appeared in, unfortunately (Gold Key? Dell?) nor why it haunts me so. The search continuesHOLY CRAP, YOU'RE BACK YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY
