The squares can keep their Time, Life, Newsweek & Black Tail magazines because Bananas, Hot Dog! & Dynamite are too exciting for any of them anyhow. Bananas was largely written by Jovial Bob Stine (aka R.L. Stine of Goosebumps fame) with cartoons by my hero John Holmstrom. Hot Dog! i can't find ANY information about! What's the deal? Dynamite! was a kid's guide to the tamer & lamer pop culture of the 70s & early 80s. They were all published by Scholastic.
