What is Spy vs. Spy about?
Based on the MAD Comics its Spy vs. Spy on TV ,3 Minutes of Spying Fun Peoples most Funniest Comedy Strip Ever!
The comic features two spies, Black and White, who are constantly warring against each other, and coming up with increasingly sophisticated ways of doing away with the other.
They are made to look virtually identical: trilby hats, overcoats and long pointed noses. The only difference between them are the color of their clothes: one dresses in white, the other in black. They were similar to El Hombre Siniestro (the Sinister Man), and Tovarich, characters which Prohias had drawn while still living in Cuba and who would also play nasty tricks on people.
A typical plot would be one spy setting up a booby-trap for the other to fall into and be "killed". Sometimes the trap works, but sometimes the other spy comes up with a brilliant counter plan of his own (often by watching the spy set up the trap, or just somehow knowing about it) and will be the final winner. However, sometimes the other spy expected this and set up a similar trap for them. In other cases, the losing spy will use a plan B to counter the other spy's counter. Frequently, the winning spy celebrates his victory with a V sign gesture toward the loser.
Sometimes the spies' traps are not to kill or injure the other, but to simply trick them. Some of the early cartoons (including their very first), published in 1961, had both spies coming up with the same plan to trap the other, the result being a draw. In the early years, the title panel of the comic would feature a one-panel gag presenting one spy besting the other; the main comic then used the rest of the panels to tell a different short story with the other spy winning.Genre:
