Today in Comics History, March 26: Happy birthday, Duncan Hines!

Born on this day in 1880: restaurant/hotel and food critic and founder of the baked goods company that would eventually give us, even through today, boxed Duncan Hines cake and dessert mixes!

from "Recommended by Huncan Dines" in From here to Insanity (1955 series) #12 (Charlton, October 1955), pencils and inks by Carl Hubbell

Mister Hines didn't appear in many comic books, but I'm including him in my birthday posts because I like cake.

Duncan Hines appears on To Tell the Truth (Goodson-Todman Productions/CBS, September 10, 1957), hosted by Bud "Superman" Collyer

Happy birthday, D.H.! We chipped in together and bought you a pizza, because we couldn't think of a different food to serve at a birthday party.

I see a wafer-thin mint in someone’s future…
