This lush Davis piece shows us what NBC's fall 1965 lineup looked like:

Was this in an issue of MAD? Because I don't recall ever seeing this...

I don't know where the piece is from, but my blind guess would be the 1965 Fall Preview issue of TV Guide. It could also be an NBC-commissioned ad. It's 50/50 as to whether Jack Davis was even with MAD when he drew the above piece-- he left with Kurtzman in 1956, and returned sometime in 1965. Wherever it's from, though, it looks great.

Hey!

Although it is totally different, this piece reminds me of the cover art Norman Mingo did for the wraparound cover of MAD #35.

Stunning! I forgot how beautiful full colour Davis art was. Depressing to think this was 45 years ago though...

The illustration is from the 1965/66 Fall Preview issue of TV Guide (September 11-17, 1965). It is an NBC ad that consists of three double page spreads. The small size doesn't do it justice!

According to the book "The Art of Jack Davis", the NBC ad was the first work he did in TV Guide. The checklist says that it was a fold out, but it isn't in my copy. Through July of '85 it lists art for 66 issues--at least 23 covers.
