Note on Harvey Kurtzman:
All uncredited material of which the artist is not immediately obvious is listed here under his name. He wrote them all anyway.
This is doubtful in some cases, like the article on William Gaines and the "Special Announcements" in the last issue (Nr. 23).
Also, the "Mad Mumblings" letters to the editor may have been partly real—who could tell by now?.

A note on Al Feldstein
This is as good a place as any, maybe better than most, to say "KUDOS!" to Al Feldstein, who took over as editor after Kurtzman left; and under whose editorship MAD grew really popular. I'm convinced Harvey couldn't have stuck it out for all that time, especially not being handicapped the way Feldstein was. For example, after Paramount took over, MAD spoofs on Paramount movies were out. Such childishness!
