1966 "Mad" Lost In Space spoof



Heaven knows, "Lost In Space" was infinitely deserving of being lampooned, and Mad magazine does a good job of it. This spot-on spoof, scanned from my copy of issue 104, published July of 1966, came out while the show was still in first-run. Writer Dick De Bartolo accurately parodies the show's constantly-repeating situations, and artist Mort Drucker nails the charicatures; in all, it's truly funny!

Oh, man... heh, heh, heh... (snort) oh, that was good.
