R.I.P. James Gandolfini, Actor

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

We were saddened by the death of James Gandolfini, whose performance as Tony Soprano inspired many MAD articles over the years. Today we present a Celebrity Snap of the actor (posing with MAD artist Ray Alma), as well as our parody of The Sopranos by Arnie Kogen and Mort Drucker. It first appeared in MAD #389, January 2000. 

Modern Family -- Emmy Winner, MAD Satire Loser!

Modern Family was the big winner in last night’s Emmy telecast, collecting five awards. But we’ll see how long their euphoria lasts once they realize we’ve posted the opening splash from our spoof of their little show. Written by Arnie Kogen and illustrated by Tom Richmond, the takeoff originally appeared in MAD #509. And for those of you who are about to comment and say we’re only doing this so we can be associated with a winner – good call!
