Dick DeBartolo (born October 19, 1945) is a notable American writer and model train enthusiast, most famous for writing for Mad. He is occasionally referred to as "Mad's Maddest Writer," this being a twist on Don Martin's former status as "Mad's Maddest Artist." DeBartolo served as the magazine's "Creative Consultant" from 1984 to 2009.
Mad has long spaced out DeBartolo's articles to ensure that at least one appears in every issue. As of his byline in issue #502 in 2009, new DeBartolo material has appeared in 400 consecutive issues, dating back to 1966. This is the longest such streak, surpassing runner-up Sergio Aragonés by nine issues. (Aragonés would be 25 issues ahead of DeBartolo's run if not for a single missed issue, #111. Al Jaffee would also be 16 issues ahead of DeBartolo, had he appeared in issue #360. Other than these three, only Dave Berg (whose streak was halted by his death) appeared in as many as 300 consecutive issues.) DeBartolo has written well over 250 television or film parodies for the magazine, easily the most by any Mad writer.
On August 23, 2012, DeBartolo married his partner of 32 years, Dennis Wunderlin.
