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

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.

First Look: The Hub's The Aquabats! Super Show Returns For Season 2

When we last left our heroes The Aquabats, the rock n' roll superheroes had just saved the world — but were propelled deep into space. Now, as The Hub's The Aquabats! Super Show returns for a second season, the band is back on Earth and received as heroes.

"It's not revealed how they make it back to earth, but we'd love to explore that later," says executive producer Christian Jacobs, whose alter ego, MC Bat Commander, is the de facto leader of The Aquabats. "With the loss of Super Magic Power Man, played by 'Weird Al' Yankovic, the earth is happy to have us back. The Aquabats are still five goofballs, but now there are these huge expectations for them to perform. They've got the weight of the world on their shoulders."

The Aquabats have come a long way, from their start as an early 1990s Orange County, Calif., band to the stars of their own TV show. (Jacobs is also one of the creators of the preschool sensation Yo Gabba Gabba!). "The fact that The Aquabats! Super Show is out and people are responding to it well and kids like it too, not just thirtysomething dads, it's really gratifying," he says.

"Weird Al" Dares to Look Stupid in "Perform This Way" Video

The video for "Weird Al" Yankovic's much-discussed Lady Gaga parody "Perform This Way" has at last arrived and it's ... kind of unnecessary? True to Al's form, the visuals are literal translations of his lyrics, but skewering someone as outlandish as Lady Gaga feels like shooting fish in an egg. We don't need Weird Al to tell us that Lady Gaga wears silly things, and then show us how silly they are by wearing them himself. Most of us have functioning eyeballs and were able to take in the intentional spectacle of the meat dress or police-tape outfit the first time around...
