Back a few months ago I wrote a post about a brightening future for MAD, citing that I knew about a few endeavors on the horizon that boded well for introducing MAD to a whole new audience, but couldn’t talk about quite yet.
Yesterday’s announcement of a new MAD animated series on the Cartoon Network was one of the things I was referring to. I can’t say more because the details about the production of the show and how it will incorporate MAD features is still confidential.
Regardless the announcement is great news for MAD. I’ll share more as I am allowed. Here is the part of the official press release that concerns the MAD show:
MAD: Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and using the iconic MAD magazine, published by DC Comics, as inspiration, MAD is an animated sketch-comedy series utilizing a chaotic mix of animation styles and twisted humor to pull back the curtain and expose the truth behind movies, TV shows, games, pop culture and, of course, curtains! Classic MAD magazine characters and features such as Alfred E. Neuman and Spy vs. Spy pop up, and no subject matter or individual will be safe from MAD‘s barrage of parodies and sketches. ¬¨‚Ä†In the end, viewers won’t get even, they’ll just get MAD! ¬¨‚Ä†Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. ¬¨‚Ä†Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and Mark Marek (KaBlam! The Andy Milonakis Show) are the producers.
