The MAD Magazine show set for the dusk period between Cartoon Network/Adult Swim debuted last night, and the LA Times has an interview with the producers and clips and so on:
Really, if you’re going to try and duplicate or capture the flavor of Mad, you’re going to want it to be an animated series, because we have so many great artists from Sergio [Aragonés] to Don Martin, “Spy vs. Spy,” Al Jaffee, all these great artists that you want to bring to life. And the great thing about our show, I think, is that we have the actual guys. Sergio is working on our show, contributing stuff. Mark and I have talked about this before. It’s such a blessing to have these guys on the show. It’s not only a blessing, it’s a validation. I feel that they’re on board, and this truly is Mad. It may have taken a while to get here, but I don’t care how we got here. The point is, we’re here.
We missed the premiere, but this still of puppy bombs makes us sorry we did.
