Never met Mort Drucker, but as a MAD fan throughout my childhood, his name loomed as large as any super star of the 70’s. The man shaped my sense of humor and my worldview. Thank you, Mort, for the laughs and also for always giving me something to look forward to as a kid! https://t.co/XKn3pmjRw1

It felt like we had really made it when we were brutally mocked in the pages of @MADmagazine! Truly a career highlight & when it came to spot-on, uncanny caricature, there was no finer artist than Mort Drucker. Simply the best…by far. #RIPpic.twitter.com/8J7Cshch0t

“His illustrations of celebrities for Mad magazine’s movie and television satires inspired countless cartoonists. Actors, politicians and others knew they had made it when he drew them.” https://t.co/ZvpwIlblcz

RIP, Mort Drucker, whose caricatures revealed as much as they ridiculed. In your memory, we will continue to satirize even in dark times, and laugh like Idiots while doing it. https://t.co/n8RWodU1Nz

Farewell to another architect of our childhoods. A TV show or movie didn't truly "rate" until it was caricatured by this genuis. RIP Mort Drucker. https://t.co/74nGavg2XM

A friend of Mort Drucker’s, cartoonist John Reiner, emails me: “I’m sorry to say that Mort passed away last night. I saw him last Friday-he was having trouble breathing- Was not the Coronavirus as he was quarantined for weeks with no other outside contact….

RIP Mort Drucker, absolute genius artist for MAD Magazine.
As a kid I used to absolutely luxuriate in his detailed parodies / caricatures from movies. In fact it's how I got to know a lot of films long before seeing them. Such an amazing talent!!https://t.co/JNMx6dOZlv

He was so key in making Mad the greatest popular culture, politics, entertainment satire magazine in history.
