Book Description

Oct. 30 2012
For the past six decades (that's 60 years-we did the math so you don't have to) MAD Magazine has keenly observed the American landscape and promptly made fun of everything in sight. Unwavering in their commitment to high quality stupidity, MAD's legendary artists and writers, long known as "The Usual Gang of Idiots," have brilliantly satirized politics, celebrities, sports, media, cultural trends, and more.

Totally MAD (originally titled The New American Cookbook until cooler heads prevailed) is the ultimate collection of MAD's most idiotic material, including such classics as Spy vs. Spy, The MAD Fold-in, A MAD Look At..., The Lighter Side of, Horrifying Clichés and The Shadow Knows, plus modern MAD classics including The MAD Strip Club and The Fundalini Pages.

Whether you grew up with MAD in the 50s, 60s, or 70s, reading it with a flashlight under the covers so your parents wouldn't catch you, or in the 80s, 90s and beyond, reading it while watching the MADtv sketch comedy show or the more recent animated series on the Cartoon Network, this book will bring back fond memories and also provide a great introduction to MAD for new readers. Then again, maybe not.

Includes "The Soul of MAD," 12 classic cover prints, ten featuring Alfred E. Neuman, MAD's gap-toothed grinning idiot mascot. These beautiful reproductions are suitable for framing or wrapping fish.

3.0 out of 5 stars good book could have been better Dec 10 2012

This is an oversized coffee table book that offers a very thorough glimpse into the history of this iconic title. It contains a mixed assortment of stories and spoofs that have made this such a long lasting brand. My only criticism is that fact that there are a lot of spoofs and parodies that for some reason were reprinted in a difficult size to read. The full sized reprints were great, why couldn't the entire book be reprinted in such a manner? Regardless I did find the book a good value.

It's been a great 60 years for MAD magazine! I love seeing all the front covers for these past 60 years, many examples of those wonderful movie and television show satires. I recommend the book to all the fans (who may sometimes have to put on their glasses to read the smaller prints but eh... we're not getting any younger either!)
