Picture Season Episode number Episode name Reference
Mad fold-in.png
Mad fold-in 2.png
4 80 "Marge in Chains" Tattoo Annie shows her MAD fold-in tattoo. The fold-in also says Alfred E. Newman's famous quote "what, me worry?".
6 104 "Bart of Darkness" Bart relaxes by reading an issue of "Mad" and laughs with an episode of "The Lighter Side of... Hippies".
7 140 "Team Homer" Bart gets into trouble at school after wearing a "down with homework" shirt from MAD Magazine Special Edition.
Alfred E. Neuman.png 9 179 "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" While visiting New York City Bart sneaks away to visit the head quarters of "Mad Magazine". He asks the receptionist whether he is in "Mad's" office, whereupon the woman gives him a snarky answer, in reference to the regular Mad series "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions". Bart interprets her answer as a joke, but the receptionist informs him that "certain things are done seriously around here". When a disappointed Bart is about to leave "Mad"'s mascot Alfred E. Neuman pops up. He makes reference to "Mad" characters Kaputnik (from "The Lighter Side") and Fonebone (from Don Martin's comics). Behind him several running gags from "Mad" can be seen, including a Don Martin-esque character, Kaputnik, the white Spy from "Spy vs. Spy" and the airship.
9 182 "Treehouse of Horror VIII" The second segment, which is a parody of the movie "The Fly" (1958), has the title "Fly vs. Fly", which is a pun on the "Mad" comic strip "Spy vs. Spy".
12 262 "New Kids on the Blecch" The title is a reference to the word "Blecch", which is a running gag in "Mad Magazine". In the episode itself The Party Posse gets spoofed in an issue of "Mad Magazine", which angers their manager so much that he bombs their office in New York. The artists are shown thinking up a parody title for their spoof of the TV series "Everybody Loves Raymond" and after a long night of debating find nothing better than "Everybody Hates Raymond" (in reality the "Mad" spoof of this series was "Everybody Loathes Raymond"). After being bombed none of the "Mad" artists are phazed by the explosion. One of them even claims to feel "better". This is a reference to the fact that many "Mad" covers feature Alfred E. Neuman turning a situation upside down.
20 438 "Father Knows Worst" Otto bought an Alfred E. Neuman model kit with interchangeable arms from Crafty Art's Art & Crafts in order to disguise his buying glue for other purposes. He then threw it in the bin.
Not Mad Magazine.png 21 463 "The Bob Next Door" Bart finds a copy of a magazine called Not Mad Magazine on Sideshow Bob's desk. Both the title as the character on the cover spoof Mad and their mascot Alfred E. Neuman.
