Sunday Funnies: "Family's Feud" by Howard Nostrand

Admit it, Groove-ophiles--if you had a TV back in the mid-to-late 70s, you were addicted to Family Feud. That Richard Dawson-hosted Match Game spin-off took the game show world by storm, lasting well into the 80s, and rising again, and again, phoenix-like decade after decade. If you have GSN, you no doubt realize that the original version is the bomb-diggety. Dawson, smooching every lady contestant in sight, thumbs in his vest-pockets, doing his best to be nice when he really wanted to bop some of those nutty contestants is unlike any other game show ever. Naturally, The Feud was a pop-phenomenon, which means that our fave humor mags poked fun at it in their pages. Howard Nostrand's "Family's Feud" from Cracked #154 (cover-dated October 1978) looks great and does a fine job of skewering the sillier aspects of that classic show. On your mark! Let's start..."The Family's Feud"!
