Just For Fun / Ideas For MAD Sketches

Go To

The Cartoon Network show MAD featured 2 special sketches in every episode. There were 2 types of special sketches:

  1. Sketches that took the titles of 2 works, or characters or other things to do with said works, and combined them to create a Punny Name. (For example, Avenger Time, My Little War Horse, Wreck-It Gandalf, and so on.)

  2. Less commonly, there were sketches that just took the title of one work and added an insulting word. (For example, Trans-bore-mers, Kung-Fu Blander.)

On the show's Wild Mass Guessing page, tropers created several of their own ideas for MAD sketches, so many, in fact, that we decided to create a separate page specifically for the purpose of creating these Punny Names! Keep in mind that, since the show has been cancelled, we're most likely not going to see any of these on TV.

Don't be put off by the fact that most of these titles are Type 1. You can do a Type 2 title if you want, it's just that we like Type 1 more because it involves more creative wordplay than Type 2.

Though it may not seem like it at times, the show MAD was aimed at kids. For this reason, and because we try to keep This Very Wiki in general family-friendly, please try to avoid family-unfriendly examples.

If you want (though it's only optional), you can add a little summary of what would happen in this sketch, if it was made.


    open/close all folders 

Note: Media-crossovers will most likely appear in the folder of the respective namespace that comes first alphabetically. So, an example combining an Anime work and a Western Animation will be in the Anime and Manga folder. The exceptions are when the example combines a Manga with a media work coming before "M", as it will still be under Anime & Manga, and any crossovers with Comics, Franchises, Music, Real Life, Video Games, and the miscellaneous games. If these media types crossover, go alphabetically. Given it is namespace-based, this is why Live Action Television is listed as "Series."
