So many of Harvey Kurtzman's early MAD parodies hold up pretty well even today and remain hilarious, even if not perceived as being as cutting edge as they originally were. One notable exception is this one, a story that simultaneously lampoons fifties TV tropes such as Senate hearings, game shows and wrestling with a skewering of anti-communist (and anti-comics?) crusaders. It is, of course, hilarious...but more so if one has a scorecard identifying all the real people being parodied within. Today's readers, for the most part, would be completely lost.
