Canceled Too Soon #206 | Mad TV (1974)

It was best of times, it was the maddest of times! 

Decades before MAD TV became a hit live-action sketch comedy series, the beloved satirical magazine made a pilot episode for an animated sketch comedy series, which brought the cartoons from the pages to life!  It eventually aired as THE MAD MAGAZINE TV SPECIAL, and nobody seemed to notice. 

Was the original version of MAD TV, made by "The Usual Gang of Idiots"... CANCELED TOO SOON?  

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are about to find out!l

  1. You do know that the "Give it a listen!" is linked to the Brave New World page on Canceled Too Soon and not the MAD TV page, right?
