Daffy Duck: Protector of All Birds and Lover of Hostess Cupcakes

Hostess knows how to wheel and deal to get the top celebs to endorse its products. In today’s ad we are treated to a new twist in the ongoing battle between the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Enter Daffy Duck, who, tired of tangling with the Bug Bunny decides to move out to the desert to sort out his life.

While out on one of his daily walks he stumbles upon his fellow bird about to get eaten and decides to tangle with the coyote…with extreme prejudice. A quick stick of dynamite later and the Road Runner is free to Beep another day. Both duck and coyote share a delicious Hostess Cupcake at the end and all is right with the world. Bonus Notes: Check out the classic Captain Cupcake packaging and what’s with the talking Road Runner??


Trivia buffs know this is not the first time that the Coyote caught the Roadrunner. Of course nothing ever actually works out for ol’ Wile Ethelbert Coyote.
