The magazine also spun off an off-Broadway hit (Lemmings), a series of popular record albums, a radio show (The National Lampoon Radio Hour), several hardcover books (the most successful of which was a faux high school yearbook), and a line of motion pictures, most famously Animal House in 1978. One National Lampoon movie, National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), spawned a series of several sequels, including National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985), National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure (2003). 1997's Vegas Vacation was not released under the National Lampoon imprimatur.

Circulation peak

The Lampoon's commercial heyday was roughly 1973-75, with its national circulation peaking at 1,000,096 copies sold of a single October 1974 issue. The Lampoon's 1974 monthly average was 830,000. Former Lampoon editor Tony Hendra's book Going Too Far includes a series of precise circulation figures.

While the magazine was considered by many to be at its creative zenith during this time, it should also be noted that the publishing industry's newsstand sales were excellent during this period. The Lampoon's circulation height coincided with sales peaks for various other magazines such as Mad, Playboy, and TV Guide.


1975 to the end of the magazine

Most fans consider the glory days to have ended in 1975, when the three founders took advantage of a $7.5 million dollar buyout in their contracts. Also, some of the magazine's contributors left to join the NBC comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL) around the same time, notably O'Donoghue and Anne Beatts. Even so, the magazine still made money and continued to be produced on a monthly schedule throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, although the magazine was on an increasingly shaky financial footing from the mid-1980s on. Beginning in November 1986, the magazine was published only every other month. This article is about the television network. ... This article is about the American television series. ...

In 1989, the magazine was acquired in a hostile takeover by a business partnership headed by actor Tim Matheson, who had initially gained fame by portraying 'Otter' in the 1978 film National Lampoon's Animal House. During Matheson's tenure he instituted a policy banning frontal nudity in the magazine; frequent full-frontal female nudity had previously been a staple of National Lampoon's style of humor. Facing mounting debts, Matheson sold National Lampoon magazine to J2 Communications in 1991 in order to avoid bankruptcy. J2 was previously known for marketing Tim Conway's "Dorf" videos. Tim Matheson, an American actor, was born Timothy Lewis Matthieson on December 31, 1947, in Glendale, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. ...

Throughout the 1990s, the number of issues per year declined precipitously. After an attempt to return to monthly publication throughout most of 1991 (nine issues were produced that year), only two issues were released in 1992. This was followed by one issue in 1993, five in 1994, and three in 1995. For the last three years of its existence, the magazine was published only annually.[4] J2 Communications was contractually obliged to publish at least one new issue per year in order to retain the rights to the Lampoon name. The magazine's final print publication was November 1998, after which the contract was renegotiated. In a sharp reversal, J2 was then prohibited from publishing issues.


Though the magazine is no longer in print, its comedic influence on a previous generation of writers and performers was seismic. As co-founder Henry Beard described the experience years later, "There was this big door that said, 'Thou shalt not.' We touched it, and it fell off its hinges." Henry N. Beard (born probably in 1945) is an American humorist, one of the founders of the National Lampoon and the author of several best-selling books. ...

In an interview with the New York Times, Dan Laikin, current CEO of National Lampoon, Inc., stated that "the company really had just been a licensing company in the ’90s. We were just licensing the name and we had no creative input. When I came in, we had to re-energize the brand and cut back on the licensing, because the only way to take control of the brand was to make sure that ultimately we put it on projects that we are proud of."

Following the success of Animal House, MAD Magazine lent its name to a 1981 comedy titled Up the Academy. But unlike the earlier film, which was co-produced by the magazine's publisher Matty Simmons and co-written by the Lampoon's Doug Kenney and Chris Miller, Up The Academy was strictly a licensing maneuver with no creative input from MAD's staff or contributors. The movie's poor quality and lack of box office success led MAD to abandon its interest in any future film ventures. When the film appeared on cable, all references to Mad magazine were removed from the film, including a statue of Alfred E. Neuman as the school's founder.
