A MAD Tribute to the Original Batmobile

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

The original 1966 Batmobile used in the Adam West television series sold at auction recently for a whopping $4.6 million — very good news for the current owner of Burgess Meredith’s penguin-shaped submarine. We pay tribute to the sale with the cover and first page of our Batman spoof from MAD #105.

R.I.P. Ron Palillo, TV’s Horshack

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

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.
