British MAD 1989
Here's more of the British edition of MAD and the MAD-ese of its overseas contributors. This time parodying Tomorrow's World and Blue Peter
Here are some examples of the shows being parodied.
This is trying to be the one-pagers similar to Don Martin, except that I don't get this, and this time it's not a language barrier. Is the convict now one of the shooters? If so, the artist didn't execute it well.
Anyone know if this was in the American Mad?

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
