* I don't normally show submissions for names if Mad has already done a parody, as is the case with The Faketrix from issue #384. But I don't get submissions from Pakistan everyday, so I'm making an exception for Saad!

**Michele's submission would be way too long by Mad standards and it's also no where near the actual title, but it struck me funny for some reason.

***Tasmin made a good case for including this TV show (though it violates my terms of use and makes my little world collapse in on itself).

****Frank says this is what eventually became the first Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I'm not going to argue with him on this one. You don't want to get into it with Trekkies.

Submissions go through a screening process on my site. The art of coming up with a Mad-like Movie Title depends on a few guidelines. Study some of the best titles Mad's done over the years and you'll notice:
1)Titles contain an element of commentary about the movie: usually that it's a bad movie.
2)Simply changing a word into something new with no regard for satire or comic effect is not very funny. So "Smellvenger" isn't a very good replacement for "Avenger." Mad words like "Yecch" and "Ecch" are acceptable.
3)Some element of rhyme or close similarity is employed.
4)The best titles make you work to figure out their implications. Examples: "It's Depends Day" for "Independence Day" or "Five Easy Pages" for "Five Easy Pieces"

So you see, making a Mad-like Movie Title is not an easy task.
