Actually, this is slightly funnier than Robot Chicken because the limitations they have on context doesn't allow them as many chances for lazy writing as Robot Chicken has.

Wait wait is this a kid's show? Does that mean most kid's parents let them see avatar?

Caminante Nocturno - 2010-09-19

The parents of most kid let them watch Avatar.

fatatty - 2010-09-19

Really? 3 crapping your pants jokes in your first episode? That's just lazy.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2010-09-19

It's mostly shit jokes. I don't know how old you think I am, but I still manage to have a bowel movement from time to time.

kingofthenothing - 2010-09-19

I think the thought process goes something like this:

"See, it's funny because they say 'I think I just crapped myself', when they know full god damn well they just crapped themselves."

a flaming monkey - 2010-09-19

...Mad still exists?

dead_cat - 2010-09-19

This is some kind of new level of unfunny shit. I didn't even laugh once -- and it's not like I have standards or anything.

dead_cat - 2010-09-19

Also who the fuck is Justin Beiber.

kingofthenothing - 2010-09-19

he's the new Harry Potter or something.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2010-09-20

I think he's Gary Coleman's replacement.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2010-09-20

also this is excruciating

blood_visions - 2010-09-19

in it's defense, this is about the level of humor you'd find in a mad magazine. It's also only a little worse than the sketch show. That being said, I'll be surprised if it makes it to episode 5

The Townleybomb - 2010-09-19

wait, they have another show now? Is the first one done? I thought that was still on. How about "Married with Children"? I sort of assumed that was gone, but if this is back, maybe that's back too? I don't have cable, sorry.

fluffy - 2010-09-19

Yeah pretty much just as funny as the actual magazine.

FABIO - 2010-09-19

If you really want a gut punch, try reading a recent issue of MAD. Time Warner bought them out after Gaines kicked the bucket and turned it into exactly what he spent his life preventing. It's entirely a force of marketing now, full of extreme ads and jokes so heavily reliant on focus group pop culture reference it's like reading the storyboard to the next Aaron Seltzer movie.

Despite half the magazine being ads now, for some reason the price jumped from .50 to .50 in less than five years.

Cube - 2010-09-19

Yeah it really went to hell after Gaines died. We had a local version of MAD, but it lasted only a couple of years after Gaines' death, because there didn't seem to be any material that made sense anymore.

cognitivedissonance - 2010-09-19

Part of it is that T/W wanted a slightly lower demographic than the one they had, which meant cutting out anything that the average Time Warner executive believes boys under the age of 12 would know about. They actually have a MAD Jr. now, which is merely a saucier Highlights for Children.

It's a shame, because MAD was the most interesting when it was slightly above my head, and I was forced to go figure out what was supposed to be funny, then I'd go watch whatever movie they referenced, come back to the magazine, discover the joke wasn't very funny after all, and go to Cracked and read the latest Toothpaste Tube People comic and laugh my ass off.

Corman's Inferno - 2010-09-19

Actually, MAD's last gasp was when they tried to reboot the magazine and make it more like the Harvey Kurtzman era aroung '97 or '98. That lasted, oh, about three years, then TW decided to go in the opposite direction. At least Bill Wray got to do Monroe.

5 because it's true to the MAD I remember - lame gags, Sergio Aragones, and Spy Vs. Spy.

FABIO - 2010-09-19

Sergio Aragones has been the only good thing about MAD for 10 years.

Cena_mark - 2010-09-19

Jake Smelly? Avaturd? I should be on this show's writing staff.

Toenails - 2010-09-19

Stars for agreement.

Syd Midnight - 2010-09-20

Haha Cena Mark has never read a MAD magazine

SolRo - 2010-09-19

Written by a panel of Halo players?

American Standard - 2010-09-19

Wow. Pretty awful.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2010-09-19

Having no reputation worth defending here, I'll admit that I sort of liked it. I also enjoy garbage pail kids.

Caminante Nocturno - 2010-09-19

The cards, or the movie?

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2010-09-19

There a Garbage Pail Kids MOVIE? Awesome!

themilkshark - 2010-09-19

I grew up on Cracked and Mad Magazine, bought my first Cracked because they spoofed Child's Play 2 when I was in 2nd grade. I got into Mad when I was a little older and much preferred Alfred E's publication.

I like this new Mad show because it has no bad sketch comedy, it appears that they're hiring animators right out of college and you get a sweet mixed bag of animated jokey shit. I'll suffer through an almost unfunny movie parody to watch Spy vs. Spy in full motion.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2010-09-19

I think I was 33 when I actually saw Child's Play 2 in the theater. I must be old enough to be your grandfather...

...but FUCK YEAH, Spy vs. Spy!

Corman's Inferno - 2010-09-19

This is so much better than the LIVE-ACTION Spy Vs. Spy movie they had planned. It's reportedly one of the worst unproduced scripts ever.

FABIO - 2010-09-19

The sketch comedy show had spy vs spy too =\

Spit Spingola - 2010-09-19

This got really grating but it is at least as good as Robot Chicken. Five for unexpected Devo and nostalgia for Sergio Arigones, Don Martin, and Spy vs. Spy.

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown - 2010-09-19

Don Martin has been dead for a decade.

Godard's Drinking Problem - 2010-09-19

I liked the throwaway bits that weren't shitty pop culture references. So, two stars for twenty seconds.

Syd Midnight - 2010-09-20

I couldn't get past the first skit because it reminds me of acting out a MAD magazine movie parody and realizing that Mort Drucker's art was the only funny thing about them.

FABIO - 2010-09-20

This....this is worse than Robot Chicken

Seris - 2010-09-20

This is like shitty newgrounds video bad.

FABIO - 2010-09-21

The newgrounds Avatar spoof was actually funnier than this =(

Rape Van Winkle - 2010-09-21

This was really bad.
