Description

Note: Month and year shown on front cover – a rule-proving exception until much later in the life of the British version: presumably adapted direct from the US MAD cover.

16 – 23: Is This Your Life? (TV spoof of This Is Your Life from MAD #24) - Another surprisingly-long remnant from the Kurtzman era. In the text, “Raoul Phedwards” (US TV personality Ralph Edwards) has been replaced by “Andrew Hemans” (British counterpart Eamonn Andrews); regrettably, the likenesses in the drawings are based on Edwards, making the name change superfluous.
The British Department head, YOUR LIFE IN THEIR HANDS, follows the name of a BBC TV medical documentary series of 1958-64.
