Item 580: MAD magazine
Category: Press
Description: UK edition of MAD magazine issue #319 (November 1988), featuring a spoof of the series. Running joke implies Vincent has canine (rather than feline) characteristics. In a bit of irony, the last frame introduces ALF (from the series of the same name), which competed in the same Friday time slot as Beauty and the Beast.
