Editorial Reviews

MAD, the new animated sketch-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation, is inspired by the iconic MAD magazine, a twisted mix of humor and animation styles pulls back the curtain and exposes the sordid truth behind movies, TV shows, games and ~ of course ~ curtains! Classic MAD icons are featured, as well as a barrage of pop culture parodies and punch lines.

4.0 out of 5 stars What, Me Worry? October 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A TV show from the self-described "biggest producers of garbage on the planet"? On DVD? Yep.

MAD premiered on Cartoon Network last year to mixed reactions. The younger folk seem to like it well enough, the snooty late-teens and nostalgic twenty-somethings turn up their noses, and the older folk just scratch their heads and say "MAD magazine is still around? Huh." In a nutshell, I would dare to describe it as "Robot Chicken for a PG audience". Animated sketch comedy that parodies and mashes up every facet of pop culture that might be relevant to today's cartoon-watching crowd.

And in my opinion, it works. What we're presented with here is a high-octane stream of movie riffs, kids' cartoon parodies, Internet memes, gross-out jokes, and quirky little bumps between segments (some of which are produced by the legendary Sergio Aragones himself!). The mash-ups range from up-to-date (CSiCarly, Avaturd, I Love You Iron Man, etc) to cross-generational (2012 Dalmatians, Malcolm In The Middle-Earth, Grey's In Anime, etc), and cover dozens of sub-genres in between.

If you remember reading MAD magazine as a kid (and haven't been keeping up with what kids are reading and watching these days) you may be "too old" to get this show. Some things will still make you chuckle, but unless you're familiar with Hannah Montana, Twilight, and Justin freaking Bieber, you'll miss at least 50% of the jokes present here. Though you'll probably still enjoy the Spy vs Spy shorts. Classic stuff.

For a DVD release, this works well enough. Half of the show's first season (13 11-minute segments) is present, picture and audio are fine, but no special features. And interestingly enough, no advertisements.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I got MAD February 15, 2012
Format:DVD
I've been a fan of MAD magazine since I can remember. Since the Seventies sometime, and I even still subscribe to the magazine. I have a young child in the house who loves to watch all of the latest shows for kids, and this show came on one day and caught my attention and from that day on I've been hooked.

Each episode is like an animated version of the magazine. You get the movie and TV show spoofs, the celebrity parodies, lampooned commercials, and other animated segments such as Spy vs Spy, Sergio Aragones clips, and Don Martin gags. It's all there and more in great 11 minute episodes. The voice talent cast is excellent as well and really adds a lot to the jokes being presented. In fact, some of the gags based on pop culture and celebrity icons that I am not very familar with are still hilarious just to hear the zany voices blather on!

If you are looking for some silly entertainment to lighten up your mood and give you some good hearty laughs then you'll be glad that you got MAD.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's MAD funny! December 1, 2012
Format:DVD
I actually don't own this dvd [at least not now] so I can't comment on the dvd's quality. I do record and watch it on tv or buy episodes off of iTunes for my iPad so I can watch it anywhere. This is a skit comedy show that makes fun of movies, tv shows and celebrities. It even makes fun of itself. It is based on the humour magazine, MAD. I haven't read it, so I can't compare this to that or MADtv. There seem to mixed opinions about this show, but I think it's funny just for how silly it is. I also think that it's a show that kids and adults can enjoy. There are lot of sketches that parody movies and shows that most kids won't be familiar with, but you don't have to be familiar with said movies or shows to enjoy the skits. Although, the skits might have spoilers for the movies or shows they parody, so if you don't want spoilers for said movies or shows, then you'll want to watch them before seeing the skits. There are also short funny scenes, Spy vs. Spy [about two spies always trying to outwit each other], and fake commercials. This dvd has 13 11-minute episodes. The Season One Part Two dvd has the same amount of episodes. I wanted to write that here so that no one thinks they're getting 13 half hour episodes. So if you're looking for a funny cartoon, I would recommend this. Although, as I've said before, there seem to be mixed opinions about this show, so you may want to check out a few episodes before deciding whether or not to get this.
