in Order of Appearance in Regular Issues

back to Features List
Pictures sent to Mad (or taken by the staff) of celebrities who made it into the letters pages over the years.
Are they a celebrity? Are they in the letters section? Is the person holding a Mad or appearing with someone Mad? Then they're probably on this list!

(NOTE: Celebrity photos used in 2-Question Interviews are here; if a celebrity was seen in a photo but not interviewed, they're on this page!)
(NOTE: A section dealing with Mad References in the Media is in the works, so some of these listings may end up there!)
