Of course you realize THIS means WAR!

Did someone say GWAR?



No. Nobody said "GWAR." Now put that thing away, before you put somebody's eye out.

For the record, my opinion:

Mike is better than Joel.
Frank was the funniest Mad.
Bill was the best Crow.
Thank the Lord that Kevin became Tom Servo.

I concur, for the most part. Mike was better in the theater than Joel, simply due to Joel's laconic delivery. However, I like Joel's host segments better for the same reason. It always felt to me like Mike was performing, whereas Joel felt more natural. Frank was definitely the funniest Mad, but I'd still take Dr F alone over Pearl, Bobo and Brain Guy. They were funny, but the concept got too forced. I prefer Bill's Crow as well, simply because he developed a more distinct personality. Bill's Crow was short-tempered, easily frustrated, and inexplicably horny, all of which = funny. And I think everyone can agree that Josh's Servo sucked. Also thank the Lord that Kevin eventually grew out of mimicking Josh's Servo voice and began to use his own.

I liked Josh's Servo. Granted, his mad scientist persona was grating beyond all boundaries that humor will allow.... but I always liked his Servo. Whenever I watch a KTMA or Season One, he seems to get the lion's share of the laughs from me. I'm not taking any knock at Kevin, as nobody can argue that he is the definitive Servo... but I thought Josh could have taken the character in a good direction had he stuck around.

Huh. I've always found him overbearing and his timing awkward. You can't really criticize anything from those early years too much, though.

I find the Mike episodes funnier but I don't know if that means that Mike himself is funnier. As the show went on, the jokes and riffs got more polished and funnier, I think that if Joel had stayed he would have seemed funnier just because the material was.
As for Servo, you can't beat Kevin. I liked Trace's goofier Crow, but I thought Bill's more mature voice fit better with Mike and Tom. Plus Bill just nails the sarcasm. I didn't like Pearl in season 7 but I thought she was great in the SciFi era, As much as I loved Bobo and Brain Guy, Frank will always be my favorite henchman.

The bots seemed to mature after Mike took over... I don't know if it was because of Joel leaving or just because the show itself was getting older. It went from Joel explaining death to the bots to "Mike, this is called 'kissing'. Maybe you can try it some day." Personally I prefer the Mike episodes immensely.

I don't hate Gypsy, but I never felt that she added anything to the show. Plus, you really have to strain to understand what she's saying sometimes, whether it was Jim or Pat voicing her.
