** One ''ScoobyDoo'' segment averts this with the characters in their correct colors and outfits. This is because WarnerBros owns the rights to it. Same goes for DCComics characters.

This show is not to be confused with the FOX sketch show ''Series/{{MADtv}}'', though, according to TheOtherWiki, ''MAD'' is considered an unofficial spin-off of ''Series/MADtv'' (along with ComedyCentral's ''KeyAndPeele''), as both shows were distributed by Warner Bros. Entertainment.

An animated parody show created by WarnerBros Animation, based on the iconic humor magazine ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''. Much like the magazine, ''Mad'' the TV series presents parodies on anything and everything. Each parody is rendered in a different style of animation, and few of the sketches last for more than a minute. Also, you get animated ''ComicStrip/SpyVsSpy'' and Don Martin shorts. Basically, it's either a less [[CrossesTheLineTwice line-crossing]] version of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' with a little bit of ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' or ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' if it stuck to the source material for longer than three seasons, was 15 minutes long, had more animated sketches than live-action sketches, and didn't feel like a [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent rip-off]] of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''Series/InLivingColor''.

It premiered on Creator/CartoonNetwork on September 6, 2010, right after the premiere of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''. It came back for what was intended to be a second season, according to TheOtherWiki, premiering on February 8, 2011. However, it was later re-categorized into Season 1, and the actual second season premiered on August 22, 2011. After four seasons and 103 episodes, ''MAD'' was not renewed for a fifth season.

This show is not to be confused with the FOX sketch show ''Series/{{MADtv}}'', though, according to TheOtherWiki, ''MAD'' is actually the revived and revamped version of that show promised to appear following its 2009 cancellation.

* AdamWesting: The show is starting to take a page from ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' and casting characters with the actor that plays them in other shows, such as Creator/DiedrichBader in many of the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' skits, Music/AndrewWK as himself, Matthew Lillard as [[ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Shaggy]] and Creator/WillFriedle as Lion-LOL in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} ThunderLOLcats]]''.

** "Super '80s" has a scene of Seth Green trying to crash a truck into a train full of 1980s pop culture icons, exclaiming, "If I can't [[WesternAnimation/RobotChicken have the '80s]], no one will!" Later, one of the children refers to {{Music/Madonna}} as the person Music/LadyGaga spent her career copying (then added that RussellBrand stole his act of being a comic weirdo from Weird Al Yankovic.). Also, an interviewee who looks like Michael Ian Black on ''[[ILoveTheExties I Love The '80s]]'' sadly comments that shows like ''I Love The '80s'' count as television. Finally, when the '80s icons go back to where they belong, they fly to [[spoiler: Creator/StevenSpielberg's house, because his career would die without such retro figures as IndianaJones]].
