CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

Each week for the rest of the year, we'll be posting excerpts from the essays Frank Jacobs wrote for our 60th Anniversary book, Totally Mad: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity.
We are proud to announce the third installment of our popular book series, MAD’s Greatest Artists — this one celebrating the legendary Mort Drucker, universally acclaimed as one of the greatest humorous illustrators and caricaturists of all time. It always struck us as odd that a man of Mort’s immense talent would work for us, but we’re glad he does! This book is a rich compilation of Mort’s MAD work from the past five decades, including movie parodies, TV spoofs, and satirical jabs at eight presidents!
Here's the splash from "The Yellow Mile", our parody of The Green Mile starring Michael Clarke Duncan. Click to make it bigger.
Dallas is back! Massively popular in the 1980s, the nighttime soap is returning to television tonight, continuing the epic story of the wealthy Ewing family and all of the drama that comes with their 1% lifestyle. What better way to catch up on the saga than with MAD's 1981 parody, "Dullus"?
That's Kathryn Joosten on the far right, as featured in "The Worst Wing", our parody of The West Wing, from MAD #402, February 2001.
