Question "MAD" to air an Encore from very early "MAD"?

It says in the description that Queen Latifah (one of the best hosts in season two) will be showing a "special" Encore. Will they be showing one of her sketches from season two?

I just find it odd, because it seems that "MAD" only Encores sketches from the previous season, and if not it's almost never before season-four (aka pre-Stuart ). Other than showing a short clip in the 100th episode, I don't think they've shown a clip from pre-season four since.. well.. season four. I know they reaired season one's Christmas Claymation parody in the season six Christmas episode, but that didn't have cast members so it doesn't really count.

Anyway, I hope they do.. because a really big majority of "MAD" viewers don't know anything before season four, and I've even noticed some people here don't. It's a shame too, because season two is better than the rest (except five), and season three was definitely a lot better than seasons six and seven and a little bit more than eight, season one was better than six. But yeah.. hopefully they'll show some more Encores from early "MAD" so that current viewers can really discover "MAD"'s true beginning (to most "MAD" really began in season four which is why you hear people whining about Alex leaving but not Dave Herman), since it truly was great.

Excuse my rambling :p

I know for sure that Queen Latifah guest starred in season two, but then MADtv won't be airing any more live shows until season 9 hits the air. So maybe this "encore" is just a recorded musical performance. Dunno, I'm probably wrong. BTW, Ian, I've only seen a few episodes from season two when they originally aired, but I've quickly caught up since my local FOX station aired old reruns of MADtv until season seven arrived. So that means I've seen lots of episodes before season four, and if you count TNN, then there are only a couple episodes that I haven't seen from seasons 1-3.

Ok I'm confused. Does this mean Queen Latifah is a guest and showing off an encore, or are they showing an encore w/ Queen Latifah in it? They better not show that Queen Latifah skit from season 6, even though I found it was funny. I rather see pre-season 3 stuff, because I haven't seen most of those seasons.

My third post and counting. lol.

BTW I didn't see that many season two episodes when they originally aired either. I'd only catch "MAD" occasionally 'til season four, (I decided to after being really impressed with #324 for a change). The first episode was.. #112, I believe, somewhere around there. Anyway, the majority of season two episodes I've seen are from when my local Fox station showed them every weeknight.. unfortunately they don't anymore, they show "King of the Hill" instead
