Ah, for the 'good old days' when the youngsters considered Mad Magazine to be the height of wit and wisdom both. Still, there are wildly funny cartoons contained within the pages of Mad Magazine, even 50 years later. ( )

This collection of satire from Mad Magazine derived from the 1960s evokes memories for those of us who were fans at the time. I bought every issue (I only wish I'd had the foresight to retain them) and these articles and drawing let me relive those days. I can only guess what these must seem like to someone unfamiliar with the magazine, more especially to someone who was born after the sixties. What would really be a great book would be an annotated collection of MAD through the years! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0316334189, Paperback)

When American kids of a certain vintage--Bill Clinton, for example, but not Bob Dole--put down their childish things, they picked up MAD magazine. It didn't leave their hands until adulthood hit, and maybe after. The magazine ain't what it used to be, so it's easy to forget how keen it once was. MAD About the Sixties is a long-overdue collection of material from that seminal humor magazine's salad days. It's a welcome reminder that when MAD was good, it was very, very good: it featured solid writing coupled with great art, month after month. The movie and television parodies ("Bats-Man," "Star Blech") are sure to be a hit, whether you saw the originals the first time around or as reruns. While it helps to have lived through the era--particularly for the ad parodies--there's enough generic daffiness in MAD About the Sixties to satisfy the reader who never saw Wings, much less Paul McCartney's other band.
