Another day, another five issues of MAD.
Enjoy with relish and BUMP if you're reading!
(only three more issues until Sergio)
(two more issues until Sergio)
(only one more issue until Sergio)
...and here it is, and here's Sergio!
Internet connection goofed, sorry.
I get how most of the parody names work (Short Mort = Little Joe Cartwright, Ox = Hoss Cartwright) and "Turner Cartwheel" is a pun rather then completely corresponding to the Ben Cartwright name, but how does Yves work for Adam Cartwright?
Press F to pay respects. http://www.madmagazine.com/blog/2017/07/28/rip-stan-hart-mad-writer

Stan Hart, a 38-year-veteran for Mad, has passed away. A utility writer that also wrote for television on the Bob Newhart and Carol Burnett shows with Larry Siegel, Stan was a gifted and pointed writer for many Mad satires, including movie parodies of The Sound of Music, Catch-22, Serpico, Barry Lyndon (!), Marathon Man, Ordinary People, ET, Dirty Dancing, Groundhog Day, and The Green Mile; as well as TV satires of The Fugitive, M*A*S*H, Barney Miller, Taxi, and Seinfeld.
Condolences to his son Chris (himself a writer for Mad) can be sent to [email protected] Meanwhile, please enjoy reading Stan's material for the rest of this marathon.
