It hasn’t been a good year for the former cast members of the classic TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter. In January, actor Robert Hegyes (Juan Epstein) died. And today we’ve learned of the passing of Ron Palillo (Arnold Horshack). Once again we present the front cover of MAD #189 which featured Welcome Back, Klodder (that’s Palillo in the lower left hand corner) and our entire satire of the show as well.
Here’s the cover of MAD #189 and the opening splash of the Welcome Back, Kotter spoof in the same issue, both featuring Robert Hegyes as Juan Epstein.
