Danny DeVito won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of snarky dispatcher Louie DePalma in the legendary ABC sitcom Taxi. Here he is with co-stars Andy Kaufman and Judd Hirsch in the MAD spoof "Taxing," illustrated by Angelo Torres and written by Stan Hart for MAD #212 (January '80).

One of Mort Drucker's earliest Danny DeVito illustrations came in the mini-spoof "The Fool of the Nile," bundled with "Young Sureschlock Homely" in a Dick DeBartolo-written six-pager for MAD #263 (June '86).

Danny DeVito in "Dreary John," a parody of the Judd Hirsch sitcom "Dear John." It appeared in MAD #288 (July 1989), and was written by Dick DeBartolo. Stan Hart wrote MAD's parody of the Danny DeVito/Arnold Schwarzenegger hit Twins ("Twinge," MAD #288, July '89 - the same issue as "Dreary John"!). For several years afterwards, Hart and the other MAD writers liberally sprinkled Twins jokes in their other movie parodies, including this scene from Hart's parody of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, illustrated by Jack Davis.

And here's one of Rick Tulka's rare Danny DeVito illustrations, in the Dennis Snee-penned "MAD's Para-Persons" (which identified DeVito as a "para-midget"). The article originally ran in MAD #308 (January '92), only half a year before DeVito appeared as The Penguin in Batman Returns (spoofed by Stan Hart and Mort Drucker as "Buttman Returns" in MAD #314, September '92).
