Cartoon Network goes MAD with Clifford-Field, Big Time Rushmore

Later tonight, at 8:30pm, Cartoon Network will be going MAD once again. What’s in store for us this week? The Mayans predicted the end of the world in the year 2012, but they never predicted a big red dog that would eat New York City. Touche, Alfred E. Neuman. Additionally, watch as America gets ready for the hottest new band — of former presidents! As if that weren’t enough, there’s a few spots from Spy vs. Spy, as well as special guest appearances by the magazine’s iconic Alfred E. Neuman and secret footage of rejected Pokemon Pocket Monsters! Warner Bros. made sure there’s plenty to laugh at in tonight’s episode, Clifford-Field/Big Time Rushmore. Check out the previews!

The action starts at 8:30pm tonight (September 13th) with replays available through out the week on Cartoon Network, from our pals at Warner Bros. Entertainment and E.C. Publications.

Cartoon Network goes MAD on Monday and again tonight

Nearly 60 years ago, Harvey Kurtzman and William Gaines launched MAD, a comic book magazine hybrid that lampooned and spooofed every movie, TV show, politician, and celebrity they could cram into the pages, typically starring their own iconic creation, Alfred E. Neuman. The famous satire center has found a new home on Cartoon Network, with a series created by Kevin Shinick and Mark Marek, and produced by DC Entertainment (of DC Comics relation) and Warner Bros. Animation. The toon features a collection of short animated parodies and spoofs, as well as classic MAD staples, like Spy versus Spy. The series premiered on Monday, but will repeat this Wednesday for those that missed it. The episode, “Avaturds, CSiCarly” will air at 9:15pm Wednesday evening, and again at 9:45pm on Thursday evening. Then look out for new episodes every Monday at 8:30pm, right after Regular Show.
