Cartoonist Mort Drucker, 91

COD: he was 91

One of the guys responsible for Mad Magazine in its heyday, it's nostalgic just looking at the guy's style of drawing.

It was the only thing we could get that pointed out the stupid shit in the world that nobody else would admit seeing. It validated what we saw and occasionally caused a forehead slap pointing out something we hadn't noticed but would add to your toolbag of critical thinking. That popular internet hook, "you'll never see ____ the same way again", was a Mad guiding principle.

A fantastic caricaturist; never any moments of "wait who's that supposed to be?"

RIP Mort; RIP MAD.

Re:MAD
As a kid I noticed there were two types of kids on the playground; kids who read MAD and kids who read CRACKED.

For our Brits

Tim Brooke-Taylor, 79

COD: Coronavirus

I loved The Goodies when I was there as a young 'un; I was 14, and that might have been exactly the right age to encounter them. Their silliness was charming and their wild sped-up slapstick camera effects were hilarity. There was something adorable about them.

I hadn't heard that. Poor old Tim.

He was also great in 'I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again' with John Cleese amongst others, and a long running panellist on 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue' both on the radio.

I've got all The Goodies DVDs. Time to bring them out again for another viewing.

RIP TB-T.

They never really exported The Goodies to the US, and I have just watched "Kung Fu Kapers" and I can see why. It's about the ancient Lancastrian martial art of Ecky Thump, in which black puddings are the secret weapon, black braces are awarded in addition to black belts, and comically large flat caps are awarded to grand masters. It may just be too British for any audience... the silliness always translates perfectly though.

By strange coincidence, I was talking to Dad about that very episode just minutes ago.

I don't think that it would have travelled well though.
