Mad #126 (Albert Feldstein) - Who Needs You Issue - April 1969

Norman Mingo drew Alfred E. Neuman as Uncle Sam on the cover of this issue.  Mingo pays tribute to the classic art of James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960) by using part of his name in the cover signature.  Flagg served as an artist for Life and Judge.  His iconic army recruitment poster was drawn in 1917.

Don Martin was in fine form with three novelty shop vignettes and one about the world's stickiest pasta.  [JAM 12/7/2009]

Look for Steve Canyon on page 24.

Reader Neil Wahlert found Dick DeBartolo and Sergio Aragones in "The Lighter Side of American Tourists."

The air traffic controller has a cuckoo clock (page 25) and Mrs. Robinson left her telephone number on page 48.
