  • Trivia

    • William allowed the name of MAD magazine to be attached to the 1980 Warner Brothers film "Up the Academy," but when the movie turned out to be a flop, he paid Warner to remove all references to the magazine from all future prints and even gave ticket refunds to for complaint letters from fans. This has since changed in the years since his death, as tv showings and the DVD for the film now have restored them, obviously due to Time Warner now owning MAD Magazine.
