Ninety-eight-year-old cartoonist Al Jaffee, whose work has appeared in every issue of Mad magazine save one, is perhaps best known for inventing the “fold-in” — the publication’s back cover feature that reveals a surprise message and image once the page is folded. In 2016, Jaffee made history when he was recognized as the cartoonist with the longest active career, which landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records. Jaffee’s career as a cartoonist spans over 75 years, 60 years working for Mad. Jaffe’s two best-known comics series, “Mad’s Fold-In” (1964) and “Snappy Answers To Stupid Questions” (1965) are among the oldest features in Mad.
