growing up reading mad gives you a different look on the world and this guide through the world of TV through the eyes of mad is probably better than the programes themselves, with all the TV classics and a few new ones will suit all old and new mad devoties alike...

Superb! 10 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great synopsis of the past 30 years of TV history as seen through the warped minds of MAD. I owned some of these issues in the 70's but it was nice to see that some of the gang hadn't lost their touch into the eighties and nineties. If you like this you'll love MAD about the seventies. They both bring back fond and funny memories.

Great 31 July 2001
By Rebecca Benchetrit - Published on
Format: Paperback
Who else could send us to our graves laughing in delight other than Mad? Answer : Nobody. The boys are ate it again, with these classic spoofs of all our favorite sitcoms, soap operas and cartoons. My personal favoirtes are : When Seasame street joins the vast political right wing and the spoof on Kung-Fu (Kung Fool). You really can't go wrong with mad, aside from Calvin and Hobbes's creator and writer Bill Watterson, these guys are the only ones who can make me laugh out loud while reading the gags. If your new to MAD then this is the perfect place to start, even though I'm too young to have seen all the shows that are in this book I still get a kick out of reading them and you will too. I reccomend getting this one first, before checking out the other books MAD has to offer. This is the perfect gift for anyone at anytime, so cheer them up and make 'em laugh to death!

A very good book by MAD, not great though. 6 July 2001
By "icebreakeribs" - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book! Worth buying, yes I believe so. This is much better than tha MAD About the Movies because it has more flavor and has better comics about the TV world in MAD's perspective. I really like this book, but it doesn't compare to some of the five star work MAD has done with such books as MAD's Bathroom Companion and MAD's Half-Wit & Wisdom of Alfred E. Neumann. If you like TV and Movie spoofs, and you can relate to a lot of them, than this is one to buy! If you are just looking for a laugh, this would be a good book to have, but not before some of the others!
