Mad Magazine, founded by editor Harvey Kurtzman and publisher Willian Gaines (1952), had originated as a comic book that took a satirical look at the media and cultural landscape of the 20th Century. During the 1990's MADtv was developed as an American sketch comedy television series which licenses the name and logo of Mad launching it's first episode on October 14, 1995. Other than animated Spy vs. Spy and Don Martin cartoon shorts with images of Alfred E. Neuman, the show has no other association with the humor magazine.
MADtv recently took a satirical look at 'Snuggle Bear', the cute and lovable little mascot from Snuggle Fabric Softener and what could potentially happen if you found yourself face-to-face with a talking bear who magically appears in your laundry room.
