The Adventures of TaunTaun / Everybody Loves Rayman is the 23rd episode of MAD Season 2, and the 49th overall episode of MAD.

Steven Spielberg translated a popular European comic book into... the Adventures of Tintin: the Secret of the Unicorn. Sadly, MAD used a cheaper translator and misinterpreted it as... The Adventures of TaunTaun! You get what you pay for.

— Announcer from The Adventures of TaunTaun
