Charlton Heston channels his Moses role in The Ten Commandments for this scene in "The Milking Of The Planet That Went Ape." Written by Arnie Kogen, illustrated by Mort Drucker and originally appearing in MAD #157 (March '73)
Artist Mort Drucker and writer Dick DeBartolo zinged Charlton Heston's role in Airport '75 for the satire "Airplot '75," which originally ran in MAD #176 (July '75).
Ava Gardner (who once threatened to sue MAD over the Kurtzman-Davis parody "The Barefoot No-Countessa!") and Charlton Heston bicker in the splash panel for "Mirthquake," the Angelo Torres-Dick DeBartolo parody of the 1974 disaster flick Earthquake.
Even Tom Bunk got a crack at Charlton Heston via the latter's appearance in the Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick True Lies. Stan Hart wrote "UnTrue Spies," which originally ran in MAD #335 (February '95).
Although he had made several appearances in MAD movie satires over the previous quarter-century, Charlton Heston was so delighted by this Scott Bricher depiction for MAD #377 (January '99) that he contacted the MAD offices in gratitude, later announcing in a Letters and Tomatoes Dep't submission that he was thrilled to have made "at least the BACK cover" of MAD.
