DVD Review: MAD Season 1 Part 2

I think every kid growing up gets introduced to Mad at some point. What's better is reliving the craziness that has brought the magazine to the small screen on Cartoon Network.  And now, getting to watch MAD Season 1 Part 2 on DVD was a blast that I'll be able to watch over and over again!

Mad consists of almost two and a half hours of in your face cartoon sketch comedy mashups blending the style of Mad with the likes of our favorite superheroes, the latest blockbuster movies, pop stars and whatever else is hot at the moment. No one is safe from Mad!

What is included on the DVD is 13 parody episodes that are completely hilarious. You have mashups between Pokemon and Jurassic Park, the WWE meets ER = "WWER" (yes, you  just saw that), The Muppets meet Limitless, Thor meeting Donkey Kong and a lot more! How they come up with this I don't know but would like to see the process! It has to be lots of fun to come up with animated craziness like this!

The animation is great and fun and really entertaining.  It's a mixture of puppetry, stop motion animation, claymation, cut and crops and good old fashioned animation and more. One staple that is also included in each short is "Spy Versus Spy" and Mad wouldn't be Mad without these two going at it! It's always fun watching these two black and white birds trying to out do one another.

Bottom line is if you enjoy watching Mad on Cartoon Network then pick up this DVD now. You get almost two and a half hours of these great animated parody shorts that are hilarious! It released on January 17th. 3.5/5
