Mad TV (season 5)

The 6th season of Mad TV aired from September 23, 2000, to June 23, 2001, with 30 episodes.

Summary[edit]

Mad TV began its 6th season with several cast changes. Pat Kilbane and Phil LaMarr left the show at the end of the 5th season. Returning repertory players Alex Borstein, Mo Collins, Michael McDonald, Will Sasso, Aries Spears, Nicole Sullivan, and Debra Wilson were joined by Nelson Ascencio (a featured player from last season) and newcomer Christian Duguay. Andrew Daly, Dannah Feinglass, Jeff Richards, and Stephnie Weir were added as featured players.

Cast members reprised many of their well-known characters and schticks. Alex Borstein and Will Sasso interviewed celebrities at red-carpet events, while Sasso performed celebrity impersonations of Robert De Niro and Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. Mo Collins appeared as Doreen Larkin, Trina Moss, Lorraine Swanson, and Liz Whitman-Goldfarb. Debra Wilson and Aries Spears appeared frequently as Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

The cast also added several new characters. Michael McDonald portrayed the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man (later named Mofaz the next season), an irritable American immigrant who uses pop culture references to illustrate his family's shortcomings. Stephnie Weir played Dot Goddard, a 7-year-old girl whose intelligence pales next to her twin sister, Karen (Alex Borstein), a child genius who has written several books, found cures for diseases and planned NASA expeditions. Michael McDonald and Mo Collins played Dot's parents, who treasure Karen but despise Dot. Stephnie Weir also unveiled the characters Mrs. Campbell, a curious old lady, and Dr. Kylie, an immature, party-loving doctor. Season 5 guests Seth Green and Susan Sarandon returned periodically during season 6.

Christian Duguay impersonated Jay Leno, President George W. Bush, and *NSYNC member Joey Fatone. Duguay also played hyperactive preteen Edward and Loopgarue of "Loopgarue & Hulahoop," with Mo Collins as Hulahoop.

Jeff Richards soon left Mad TV but later appeared on Saturday Night Live (making Richards the first Mad TV cast member to cross over to its rival show, Saturday Night Live), where he became well known for his "Drunk Girl" character during his three-year tenure on SNL. Nelson Ascencio, Dannah Feinglass, and Nicole Sullivan also left Mad TV at the end of season 6.

Five additional episodes meant to be aired during the 6th season did not air and ended up airing as leftover episodes for season 7.

Opening montage[edit]

The Mad TV logo appears and the theme song begins. Each member of the repertory cast, followed by the featured cast, is introduced alphabetically. The screen is divided into three live-action clips of each cast member performing recurring characters and celebrity impersonations during the introductions. When the last featured cast member is introduced, the music stops and the title sequence ends with the phrase "You are now watching Mad TV."
