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.
