King Ding Dong

    1994 pog premium of King Ding Dong -- called "King Ding Don" here for some reason. He was the Hostess Ding Dongs mascot in the past.

      How many other Hostess pogs did they make, any idea?? I'd love to see more!

      Jason -- They made pogs of 5 different characters -- King Ding Dong, Twinkie The Kid, Fruit Pie The Magician, Captain Cupcake and Chauncey Choco-dile.

      The first set had different colored backgrounds like the one shown here. The second set had the same images but with white backgrounds and messages for the kids like "Stay in school."

      If they made a pog of Happy Ho Ho, I've never seen or heard of it. As far as I know there were just those 5 characters.

      I have a set of the colored background pogs. I'll scan in the rest for another day.

      Groovy!

      Can't wait to see the rest. And thanks for sharing the information.

      No Happy Ho-Ho. Sad.

      Brings to mind a mid-90's Simpsons quote that I always liked. I believe that Milhouse had Bart's soul and traded it for comic books and an ALF pog. Milhouse's quote:

      "ALF is back... in POGGGGG form."
