About this Item

32p., lightly browned, wraps, 8.5x11 inches. Centerfold is very good but lightly browned. Yes, the Disney doublespread. No attribution in the plate. At first, contemplating the awesome mastery of Disney line, the general assurance of composition, we thought it was Carl Barks lettin' go a little. But no, Wallace Wood pinxit. Krassner comments editorially that "The first free-lance article I ever sold was to Mad magazine a dozen years ago. It was illustrated by Wally Wood. Now Wally has completed the cycle with his after-Disney orgy." // In the lower left corner Minnie is doing it missionary style with Goofy, she's pillowed on a cash register and currency litters their mattress. Mickey is shooting up; that's about as conventional as this ensemble gets. Find about 60 characters, all Disney, all diddling or defecating. This cataloguer remembers a Haight Ashbury kitchen wall adorned with the centerfold (May 1967 was onset of The Summer of Love), and walls in other pads, other townlets, must have claimed many more. // Coincidentally another exceedingly famous Realist parody appears this issue, "The Parts Left Out of the Kennedy Book," which lampoons the Jackie/Bobbie suit brought against official William Manchester, to force him to omit material he was at first assured was OK. In the Krassner reprise we learn why it was that the hole in JFK's neck was small in Dallas, large in DC, it has rather a lot to do with LBJ, and Krassner didn't think it up by himself. See issue 75, p.13, it was Marvin Garson's idea (his openness of mind perhaps affected by marriage to Barbara Garson, who had already published the accusatory "MacBird"), Krassner then boiling down Marvin's five pages to usable form.
