MAD has been around since the 1950's. In the late 60's and early 70's, it was actually looked upon as controversial. Kids and teens loved it, parents really didn't. I'll explain the things you can find in here.
The MAD Students Hate Book: 4 pages of stuff that you most likely hate.
Funniest Part: "Don't you hate...finding out that the kid that you copied those test answers from is even dumber than you are?"
Rating: 7 out of 10
School Supplies Unlimited Wholesale Catalogue: School supplies for your school that will make your children as miserable as possible.
Funniest Part: MADDENING COPY MACHINE lowers student grade averages by cleverly smudging key words in quiz questions. Mechanism is equipped with irregular ink dribbler, automatic stencil ripper, cockeyed paper feeder and other illegibility devices not normally found on copiers in this price range.
When Corporate Sponsorship of Public Schools Goes Too Far!: When there are too many price cuts in a school, you have to depend on big name companies to give you your supplies.
Funniest Part: Some Extinct Organisms; Wooly Mammoth, Saber-Toothed Tiger, Dodo Bird, Mom and Pop Small Corner Hardware Store.
The Lighter Side of..School (Part 1): The Lighter Side of... segment by Dave Berg. (MAD fans will know what that is.)
Kid's Mother: Hi, there! How were things at school today?Read more ›
But I remember that the MAD's of the 70s and 80s tackled issues like Nixon and Watergate, The Sexual Revolution, Women's Lib, Gorbachev and his silly birthmark, the Gary Sex scandal, and Iran-Contra. This was biting stuff that stuck it to the man or whoever else was in charge. It was the print version of the attitude of founder William Gaines (creator of EC classics like Weird Science and The Vault of Horror.) Gaines saw first hand what happened when government got involved in your business from the aftermath of the 1950s comics scare and created MAD as a way to skewer the traditonal (and often flawed) American Way of life.
The MAD Student Survival Guide is a strange mixture of classic Gaines and the modern DC versions of the title. Dave Berg's 'The Lighter Side Of...' is featured throghout the book as are Drawn Out Dramas, those great tiny cartoons by Sergio Aragones. Classic MAD artists like Al Jaffee and Don Martin are featured too. But the majority of the features in the book is the modern day drivel that MAD is now known for. Though a feature about the types of lunches packed by mom, that featured an up-and-coming Amanda Conner, was a delight.Read more ›
i was expecting this to be more inline with some of the other offerings such as Mad about Superheroes or Mad about the 80's. this is instead a very small, thin book.
its kinda confusing because mad has such a large library and could have easily filled a book 10 times this size.
its barely a book, its more of a pamplet.
"telling it like it is"...influence great minds like film critic Roger Ebert..Jim Morrison...If you don't like public school, private school...
the "establishment" then READ MAD so you can ask the better questions and put your teachers on the spot...(unless they also
