A Eulogy for MadTV

It was announced yesterday that MadTV is to be canceled at the end of its 14th season. Let's be honest, most of the time MadTV blew. But every once in a while they came out with a completely hilarious sketch. So, a look back at some of our favorites. Videos after the jump.

"John Madden Popcorn Popper Commercial" - The start of Frank Caliendo's hilarious Madden impersonation.

"When Babies Attack" - Perfect send-up of all those terrible (mostly Fox) prime-time "When [Insert random noun] Attacks" shows.


"Kenny Rogers Jackass" - Single Greatest Line in all of TV history: "I'm Kenny Rogers and this is the bat-fetcher trick with my teeth." There was a whole series of MadTV Kenny Rogers spoofs (see here) but "Kenny Rogers Jackass" tops them all.


"Lorraine Takes Dance Lessons" - Think of Mo Collins' Lorraine Swanson as the cracked out version of SNL's Church Lady. 


"Stuart at the Therapist" - "Stuart, what does mamma say?"
