20. "Vinny Shinblind, The Invisible Sex Maniac"
NatLamp didn't have a "slow decline," it just fell off the effin' CLIFF. One day it was mighty, the next it was crap. But the moments of genius? Their "High School Yearbook Parody" STILL stands as one of the greatest pieces of satire of all time. The real "core" stuff...written largely by the same guys who were responsible for "Animal House" still golden.

I don't think I would have had an adolescence without the late, legendary Don Martin in "Mad." Don't think I ever had a single belly laugh over any of the "Dave Berg's Lighter Side Of..." stuff. Loved Mort Drucker's movie parodies. Favorite moment was the "Summer of 42" parody, where the kid's under the blankets humping up and down and yelling war whoops and the Jennifer O'Neil character says "Just think of how much fun it will be when I get in there WITH you..."
