Mad Magazine #354 (Alfred E. Newman as Jabba Cover)

February 26, 2010

Mad Magazine of course has a long history of parodying Star Wars, and this issue from 1997 is no different. It has Alfred E. Newman as Jabba the Hutt on the cover, and a couple of things featuring Jabba inside.

The first one is in a section entitled “Updating Star Wars for the Future” which was based on the idea of George Lucas updating the original trilogy in the form of the (then) soon to released “special editions.” This is one of their suggested improvements:

The second appearance of Jabba is in the “Star Wars Playsets You May Have Missed” section. I for one would certainly buy a “Jabba the Hutt’s Bathroom” playset. 😉 Click the image for a larger version.

    WOW, what a nostagia trip that is. I used to love the MAD magazine. You had to look everywhere for the jokes. Great Artwork.
