Michael J. Fox famously told Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show that he knew he had made it "when Mort Drucker drew my head" in MAD Magazine. Here is Fox's first appearance in the Larry Siegel-penned Family Ties spoof, which originally ran in MAD #252 (January '85).
Great Scott! The only MAD cover featuring Back To The Future co-stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd was created by the legendary Jack Davis for MAD #260 (January '55 - oops, '86).
MAD legends Will Elder and Harvey Kurtzman sent up Michael J. Fox and four other mid-'80s celebrities (some of which remained MAD targets for several decades!) in this back-cover feature for MAD #269 (March '87), "MAD's Celebrity Madballs," written by J. Prete (who 'dat?).
Artist Sam Viviano and writer Arnie Kogen slipped Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd into the opening splash (and, later, the jumbo-sized final panel) for MAD's legendary Pulp Fiction spoof. "Plot Friction" originally ran in MAD #335 (June '95).
Here's a surprise appearance for Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd in the final panel of MAD's Star Trek: First Contact parody. Writer Dick DeBartolo and artist Paul Coker teamed up for "Star Blecchh: Worst Contact," which originally ran in MAD #352 (December '96).
Having already caricatured him in MAD's parodies of Family Ties and the first two Back To The Future films, Mort Drucker took a crack at mid-thirties Michael J. Fox, who played the deputy to Barry Bostwick's fictional New York mayor in ABC's Spin City. Josh Gordon wrote "Spit City" for MAD #355 (March '97). Fox would later go on to write the foreword for the "MAD's Greatest Artists: Mort Drucker" anthology.
