Al Jaffee rocks. I always loved "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions". There is a video by Beck (I think) that does the fold-in thing. Anyone know what song it is?
Anyway, Saber...Hockey, Ford Mustangs, graphics, Indy? We're a match made in heaven. I wonder if Don Martin ever drew Indy?

Mad goes from 12 to 4 issues a year after #500 in April. It was at 8 a year from 1959-1993. Mad Kids and Mad Classics are cancelled.

Thanks Stoo! I hear Mad Classics #22 from July 2008 reprints MAD's Do-It-Yourself "Indiana Jones" Sequel. Anyone have it? For scenarios like,
Quote:
Indiana Jones-makes fun of-a small Oriental boy-on the Merv Griffen show-when an evil holy man viciously snaps his suspenders.-Using his gun,-he beats up a man twice his size-but gets hit on the head.-Since the movie is almost over,-Indy gets the treasure, the girl and a painful rash-The End (Until next sequel!).

Don't forget, Mad TV also got canned.

"One of the greatest film trilogies ever"? Could have fooled me, the way they trashed the other three movies!

My best friend and I were ten when that issue was published, and we were sitting in the elementary school cafeteria choking down our lunches--I would often trade my eskimo pie for his ham and bagel sandwich--and we were laughing like...mad...at the parody. Twenty-eight years ago.

This news is a couple months old now but they're bringing back MAD to bi-monthly status this Summer (I think the DC Comics restructuring and the upcoming MAD Animated series on Adult Swim helped):

Here's a Harrison Ford/Indy caricature on Tom Richmond's blog too:

Bought Absolutely Mad (50 years on 1 DVD-Rom) and can view the trilogy in color, but can only print or take screenshots. I'm not sure if it's in color here.

Nice one, Moedred. I can't believe Indy gets the only billing on the front cover. Gotta love Alfred as the boulder!

I'm not too sure where I found it but it’s an old black & white MAD Raiders parody!

Good ol' Jack Davis. I like the darts in Indy's hat and the flying tooth! Would be nice to see the whole picture to read what they're saying. Thanks for posting, Col. Detritch.

You can read the whole article here: http://moedred.livejournal.com/3186.html

Our very own Moedred has it up on his livejournal.
And, yes. Jack Davis was the best artist for Mad in my opinion. Loved his work for EC as well.

Here's what Indy probably looked like when he was spying on the Reds.

I remember the Cracked magazine Raiders/Temple parodies had some great art that actually mirrored the look of the cast without treading caricature territory. In fact,stupid puns aside,I actually used to view the magazine, (collector's edition #65 Movie Satires,1986,if you want to check it out) as a comic book companion to the movie,even drawing some of the panels minus the silly stuff. I'd be greatly indebted to anyone who has this and can post a few panels,as I lost mine many years ago.

Ask and you shall receive..thanks, JuniorJones. Admittedly I'm not on here often...so I was surprised to see so many magazine articles posted that I've wanted to read for awhile. Great thread!

What is parody, and what is homage? I've been pondering what to include on the Literature page. The obvious entries:

Mad in the 1980's
Mad in the 2000's
Cracked
Crazy

But then we drift into references and self-promotion: Ren and Stimpy, Muppets, Looney Tunes, etc. So what belongs? (Believe it or not, Cherry Poptart's "Oklahoma Smith and the Lost Temple of The Doomed Raiders" meets the preliminary qualifications... )
