Issue #36 - Nursery News



And while we're on this never-ending topic, this must have been mentioned before...
There hardly ever appears to be any writing credits. Are we to assume Feldstein (and Kurtzman in his time) wrote everything? Why not credit writers like the artists?

and does the "FF" stand for yet another Frank Kelly Freas signature or possible Frank Frazetta?

Nursery News could be George Woodbridge.

Nursery News is indeed by Woodbridge; text is by Frank Jacobs (revealed by the Totally MAD CD set)...

however, Totally Mad is less help with the Top Ten Bomb Song hits. Assuming it's not Frank Frazetta 01.gif 01.gif , the tonality of the clouds behind the mushroom cloud does look like Freas - although can't think why he'd leave out the K. I seem to recall reading somewhere that Meglin wrote this, but pls don't quote...

Re: Wiseman, he also drew 'The Underworld around us' in MAD '#29

Frank (Jacobs),
Is that you in this up-to-date Shakespeare from #37, and who drew all the heads?

You know what's weird? The hipster slang of the 1950s came and went out of fashion so fast, I actually have more trouble getting through that version than the original Shakespeare.

Didn't someone say that John Putnam did the art around 'up to date Shakespeare'?

Drucker, definitely, on Mike Malice

#39 artist? Kinda looks like C.C. Beall (this issue's cover artist)


and artist for these "photos" from the Neuman High School paper?


This has to be Frank Jacobs' writing, but is it ever safe to assume?

I especially like "dude'll" and "poodle."
There's also another Shakespeare Up To Date page that must be Frank's doing.

TV SWLTS is by Joe Orlando (text by E Nelson Bridwell)

Next one is uncredited. Choose from Wood / clarke / freas / berg / orlando / woodbridge (in masthead)

MAD Dogs is Jacobs (as well as FKF :0)

That football image looks a bit like Jaffee's style when he does wash work.

Dave,
I'll take your word for TV SWLTS and Mad Dogs...
Source?
Discriminating Mad minds need to know.
Any word on Jacobs and the Shakespeare articles?
Thanks,
Doug

All revelations come via the Totally MAD CD set unless otherwise specified.

Shakespeare up-to-date is written by Paul Laikin. I still think the pix are drawn by Putnam, but can't recall where I heard it.

I see what Ignatz means about Jaffee, but I'm thinking that it's more Freas. For some reason, the "stiffness" of the de-bagging pic reminds me of someone, but can't think who.

Dave,
I've been using the CDs for years but never narrowed the search by author until you made it obvious. One thing not so obvious to me is if there's a way to work in reverse. Say I want to know the author of the Shakespeare article, how would the result for Paul Laikin come up?
Thanks for all the interest.
Doug
