MTV’s "Celebrity Deathmatch" lampooned popular sports and event coverage and featured all the pre-game and post-game activities of fights, such as one-on-one interviews, press conferences and hilarious moments in the locker room. The first "Celebrity Deathmatch" premiered in a fall 1997 episode of "Cartoon Sushi," MTV’s animated variety series. The singular bout was a fantasy fight between Charles Manson and Marilyn Manson who competed for the title of "Most Evil Man in America." MTV went on to debut a Super Bowl Half-Time special, "Celebrity Deathmatch Deathbowl ‘98," featuring fantasy slugfests with Howard Stern vs. Kathie Lee Gifford, Pamela Anderson Lee vs. RuPaul and Hanson vs. The Spice Girls.
