Appearances of Howie Mandel in MAD
MAD Magazine #274 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Cast your eyes to the central portion of this glorious Sam Viviano mob shot featuring the casts of NBC hit dramas St. Elsewhere and Hill Street Blues and you'll find Howie "Wayne Fiscus" Mandel, rubber glove and all. Viviano illustrated the gag as part of the Mike Snider-penned "Stuff We Didn't Get To See On TV For One Reason Or Another," which originally ran in MAD #274 (October '87).
MAD Magazine #281 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Howie Mandel as Wayne Fiscus and Sagan Lewis as Jackie Wade introduce themselves to MAD readers in the two-page splash for MAD's St. Elsewhere parody, "St. Healthscare." Written by Frank Jacobs and illustrated by Mort Drucker, "St. Healthscare" originally ran in MAD #281 (September '88) - which arrived on newsstands two months after the series actually left the airwaves.
MAD Magazine #466 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
Hermann Mejia caricatured Howie Mandel in his mid-2000s' role as host of the NBC game show Deal Or No Deal twice in a three-issue span, shortly after the show became a surprise hit.. Game show veteran Dick DeBartolo served up "Howdy Mundane" as the host of "Dull Or Not Dull" for MAD #466 (June '06). Three issues later (#469, September '06), Arnie Kogen slipped Mandel and his Deal Or No Deal briefcases into MAD's Mission: Impossible 3 spoof, "Mission: Implausible 3."

Sam Sisco's caricature of Howie Mandel - alongside America's Got Talent co-judges Howard Stern and Sharon Osbourne - accompanied Matt Lassen's gags for his contribution to The Fundalini Pages of MAD #517 (October '12).
MAD Magazine #528 • USA • 1st Edition - New York
It's nice to be able to blend in some of MAD's newer artists for these birthday celebrations, so I'm pleased to present John Kerschbaum's Howie Mandel caricature from a recent update of the "Six Degrees of Separation Between Anyone and Anything" format. Noting that Howie Mandel is "a famous U.S. judge" (like the late Antonin Scalia) and "is bald, wears an earring and hates germs" (like Mr. Clean), this contribution to The Fundalini Pages of MAD #528 (August '14) was written by Stan Sinberg.
