I just read on Mark Evanier‘s blog that longtime MAD writer Lou Silverstone passed away this past Monday, March 16th at age 90. I never met or worked with him, he having left MAD in the early 90’s and going over to Cracked to write and eventually become an editor there, But I always enjoyed his work on MAD‘s TV parodies. He teamed up a few times with Mort Drucker and especially often with Angelo Torres on many, many classic MAD spoofs. Some of my favorites were “Bats-Man”, “Clodumbo”, “Miami Price” and “The Greatest American Zero”.
So long, Lou. Thanks for the many laughs!
