Here's Crazy's usual attempt at what the next big hit movie would be in advance so that the movie would be out in time for their cover and the movie to come out simultaneously. Although the cover by Bob Larkin parodies The Wiz in this issue from March 1979, there's nothing about the movie inside. Parody of the Dewar's Scotch magazine ads. Parody of the original Battlestar Galactica by Murad Gumen Tony Tallarico Rich Man, Poor Man was a popular TV movie, so it only makes sense the title would be exploited for this article drawn by David Wenzel Randy Epley, now a stand-up comic, wrote a few articles for Crazy, though he says “I wrote mostly for Cracked. I came to New York from Ohio during The Summer of Sam, so that shows how old I am. I started doing stand-up and got a job writing at Cracked doing photo-captions like I was doing through this guy Joe Catalano. For a lot of my Crazy articles, I would do a few drawings to show what I wanted as well.”
One such thing was this parody of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas drawn by Ron Zalme.

Similar to a very ominous New Yorker cover years ago.
