A nutty collection of items from Mad magazine. For awhile back in the early 1960s, I was a real addict. Since then, the passion cooled, but I have always appreciated the offbeat humor of this publication.

Included: a selection poking fun at "THe Shadow," featuring Lamont Shadowskeedeeboomboom and Margo Pain. Another takeoff, this time on Fearless Fosdick, entitled "Fozless Fooznick." Or (*groan*), "Shermlock Shomes in The Hound of the Basketballs."

Anyhow, a bit goofy, but an interesting look back

I suppose all the boys in grade school liked Mad Magazine, just as they would later like, although many would try to suppress this, Playboy. We would read the things like adults would read People, another publication emphasizing pictures and requiring familiarity with the popular culture.

These old Mad books are actually quite interesting from an historical perspective by this point in time.

The gossip part so thoroughly confused me. The poking fun at the army stuff was timeless.
