Twinkie Town Tales, if renewed seems about to expire. I have not factored in whether or not the new amendment to the copyright law, of life plus 70 impacts on this. Without taking any professional responsibility for this, The second one and all copyrights from about that time are in the public domain. A bit of applied research would reassure you. Infringement costs in money and pain.
