Drucker is survived by his wife, Barbara Hellerman, daughters Laurie Bachner and Melanie Amsterdam, and three grandchildren.
Starting in the ’60s, every issue of Mad contained comic-paneled parodies of current movies in theaters. By the end of his career in 2008, Drucker had illustrated more than half of the parodies.
Fan favorites include 1963’s “East Side Story,” a spoof of “West Side Story,” and a 1986 gag of Woody Allen’s “Hannah and Her Sisters.”
Early on, the Long Island-based Drucker had to keep a library of magazine clippings and promotional stills because movie studios didn’t want him goofing on their productions and wouldn’t send him press kits. Eventually, though, when Mad fanatics entered positions of power in Hollywood, they became more willing to provide material.
The once-dubious honors ceased to be so dubious. Voight was photographed reading the issue that made fun of his flick. Jerry Seinfeld called his Drucker-drawn cover — in which he’s looking down on Alfred E. Neuman and saying, “Helloooo Neuman” — “the greatest thing that ever happened to me.”
