Arnaldo De León Chávez #518 (December 2012)
JJ Brent I am the proud owner of the original art to that gag. Caldwell's first appearance too. (As an artist)

Brian Katcher Don't stop, these are great.
Demetrius Dillard Hey, it's Al Feldstein!
Arnaldo De León Chávez Al Feldstein? Hahaha
Adam Cooke Hey, it's Napoleon Dynamite! (Seriously, that was my actual reaction the first time I saw the back cover of MAD #212.)
Gary Land Don't ever stop!
Fangarius Genoa What, you worry?!
Jay Ashmore Don't stop! This is the best thing on Facebook!
Jay Ashmore My dad gave me his Mads from '59 to '72 when I was about 9. I devoured and destroyed them, but I never saw most of the ads they were taking off. You are doing very good work here my friend.
Mike Slaubaugh Stop it!
Mike Slaubaugh (just kidding!)
Ivy Dennett Thorpe I remember this Mad spoof too. Two years later I went to college and knew exactly what they were making fun of. ;-)
Annie Gaines Ashton Please don't stop, Doug! These are wonderful!
Anthony Barkdoll how are you finding the originals?
Doug GilfordTuesday, February 21st, 2017 at 2:51pm
Demetrius Dillard I have this paperback!
Demetrius Dillard Happy birthday!

Demetrius Dillard I first saw this in A Golden Trashery Of Mad.
Doug GilfordWednesday, February 22nd, 2017 at 7:34am
David Robinson Meglin and DeFuccio in the MAD version...
Jerry Moore And ...
Demetrius Dillard If memory serves, this was Nick Meglin's first appearance in a Mad ad parody.
Doug GilfordWednesday, February 22nd, 2017 at 9:36am
Demetrius Dillard This was reprinted in both A Golden Trashery Of Mad and Mad About The Fifties!

David Judovin Poor Tricky Dick.
Jerry Moore Woody gem!
Doug GilfordTuesday, February 21st, 2017 at 11:20am
David Judovin Love the ads.
Fangarius Genoa What's funny I remember the original phone book back in the 70s.
Anthony Barkdoll Wait I missed that one. What issue was it in?
Christopher Black Always loved Jack Rickard's work.

Ivy Dennett Thorpe Doug, when that issue of Mad came out in 1976 I laughed. I recognised the cover of the phone book from the Washington DC phone book, which had the same art on its covers. I went on a school trip to Washington before the issue came out, and I saw the phone book in our hotel room. I thought the Mad spoof was of the Washington phone book, hence the "political directory". I didn't know the art was also used on the New York phone book. I think the Washington phone book only used page 2 on the front cover- I remember it ending with the telephone of the future. I can't find the cover of the Washington phone book from 1975, but I have found the art also used on the cover of a Jersey Bell phone book. I suppose that many cities along with Manhattan and Washington used the design. The Miami phone book from Southern Bell didn't. http://www.spyralsearchsales.com/i/Book%20Covers/Phillipsburg1976.png
Doug Gilford And I think Norman Rockwell had an influence on the design.

Arnaldo De León Chávez
Mike Smith OH NO!!!
Arnaldo De León Chávez This must be the COOLEST (pun intended) ad parody ever made!
Jason LevineTuesday, February 21st, 2017 at 5:44am
Mike Slaubaugh Metal magazine display rack?
Ed Norris Good thing. You would have paid more. :-)
Alan Bernstein Exactly what I'm looking for as well.

Fangarius Genoa Always loved these ad parodies, the one I do recall were the ones from 'If ads really told the truth department.' Like the one they did for Diet Pepsi..

Ivy Dennett Thorpe I find it hysterically funny that the Tea Council had to try to persuade Americans in ads and TV spots to drink tea! Here in the UK tea is an obsession. That said, one of the current campaigns for Twinings tea pushes the idea that tea is the pathway to a better nicer world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yJRwH6MAv8
Bernd EngelMonday, February 20th, 2017 at 8:17am
David Fliss Bought and still got the issue!
Charlie Kadau The issue and certificate were offered as asubscription premium a few years back. More than 100 were offered. The eBay seller is extrapolating and exxagerating the issue's story to the point of misinforming and scamming potential buyers. If you have an extra $200, I can get you a rare, misprinted "MAAD" cover, btw!
Joe BlevinsFriday, February 17th, 2017 at 5:45pm
Joe Blevins Just three I couldn't recognize:
Jamie Sweet John Hughes in the middle.
Joe Blevins Awesome! Two to go. The one at the top left is killing me, because I'm sure he's someone incredibly famous and respected.
Jamie Sweet And top right with sunglasses isn't Billy Wilder, it's Akira Kurosawa.
Jamie Sweet Top left I'm going with Bernardo Bertolucci.
Raj Kaup Third, Jonathan Demme...
Jamie Sweet Excellent, good call.
Arnaldo De León Chávez GREAT...These "Spot the celebs" are a real treat!
Demetrius Dillard I remember this article!
Demetrius Dillard Funny, I didn't spot Martin Scorsese or Stanley Kubrick.
Jamie Sweet Scorsese is bottom left.
Ivy Dennett Thorpe This reminds me of a terrible movie called "Copying Beethoven" I saw with my husband. Ed Harris kept saying "Anna Holtz!" with a thick accent. "Anna Holtz!" has become of our catchphrases for making each other laugh. So is Copying Beethoven cinema or a movie?
Demetrius Dillard It's strange. to see Edward Scissorhands in this double-page spread, but not the film's director, the eccentric Tim Burton.
