Today's image comes straight from Warner Bros. You may remember years ago there was a magazine called Mad. The magazine spoofed a variety of different forms of pop culture. You may thought that it wasn't around anymore, but it is still going strong. As it turns out, the magazine has spawned an animated sketch show. It is similar to the idea of Robot Chicken, but not entirely stop-motion, and made for kids. A new episode airs tonight on Cartoon Network and Batman will make an appearance. Check it out tonight at 8:30pm.
