Cartoon Network's MAD Doubles the Funny for 100th Episode Celebration

MAD

To celebrate its 100th episode, MAD is getting "Super"-sized. The animated sketch-comedy series features a parody of the Superman blockbuster Man of Steel in Monday's double-sized show (Nov. 11 at 8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network). Producer Kevin Shinick recruited Weird Al Yankovic and Henry Winkler to voice Superman and his father, Jor-El, respectively in the sketch, which takes a playful jab at the film's controversial violence.

The network gave Shinick 22-minutes to play with — twice the Emmy-nominated show's typical episode length — and he's stuffed it with a variety of pop-culture parodies and comedy bits. The featured musical sketch, "The Worst Show Ever," is inspired by a certain boy band. "It's One Direction's take on having to watch MAD," Shinick says, emphasizing his series' self-deprecating attitude. Yankovic will voice the band's manager.

TV Guide Magazine's 60 Greatest Cartoons of All Time

The Simpsons

Of all the fantastical things TV brings into our lives, nothing indulges the imagination quite like cartoons.

In short, we just can't help being drawn to them. In honor of TV Guide Magazine's 60th anniversary, we present our list of the best and, often quite literally, the brightest:

Futurama Signs Off With Its Latest Series Finale

Futurama

The Futurama producers have plenty of experience writing series finales. After all, Wednesday's episode marks the fourth time they've thought they were bringing their outrageous animated sci-fi comedy to a close. Originally canceled by Fox back in 2003, the show later gained new life (and fans) with a series of DVD movies before Comedy Central resurrected the show in 2010. Producers thought their new home would last just one season, so they prepared for another ending. Now, two years later, here they are, signing off again. And this time it's for good. Probably.

Usain Bolt Gets Set to Strike at the World Track & Field Championships

Usain Bolt

It's been a rough summer for track and field, with drug scandals and injuries taking several players out of contention for the IAAF World Championships. But the sport's biggest name, Usain Bolt, is on his marks for this year's edition of the biennial event, August 10—18 in Moscow (airing daily on Universal Sports and NBC, see full schedule below).

The six-time Olympic gold medalist got off to a shaky start this season with a June loss to American Justin Gatlin at an invitational meet in Rome. NBC/Universal Sports analyst Ato Boldon cites other commitments for diluting the Jamaican's training, but he's confident Bolt will step up. "When it's time for a championship," Boldon says, "his management locks out a period of time, really the only time of the year, when he can have really good consistent and continuous training."
