YES!! I used to love it.

I did not see this show (the only American channel I get is CNN News), but I remember very well some famous European shows, which were a success, some time ago, like, for instance, "Spitting Image" and "Le Bêbête Show":

Marianne, It was a magazine back in the 50's...I was not an avid reader but I liked the puns and jokes. My mom used to laugh at things in it I was probably too naive to understand. I do remember reading the Spy vs Spy but not specifics.

Okay, so it is still around?? I haven't had one since the 50's. Haven't even looked for it since then. So I am a recluse...not by choice. 

Oh, and Marianne, it seems to me I do remember hearing of a television program about MAD some time ago but never watched it.

@ Marianne,

You can see all the previous Mad magazine covers here:

Wow - I thought that there was also a corresponding TV show ...


Well, in this case, I'll have to refer to "Le canard enchaîné"

"Nebelspalter"

or "Eulenspiegel":

Lol - thank you for the info, Ladyhorse.

Yes, I checked in the meantime, here in Continental Europe, we have also quite a few satirical magazines (see above).

Alfred E. Neuman?

I thought he quit this website.  :D

Rooster, I did not even know Mad Magazine was still around! I used to read it as far back as the 1950's..."What, me worry?"
