A Spaceballs cartoon series is coming to the G4 channel.
Mel Brooks and the movie's co-writer Thomas Meehan wrote the first episode. The show will start in fall of 2007. Brooks will do the voices of Yogurt and President Skroob.
If you haven't seen the movie, I weep for you. It came out in 1987, so go back in time 20 years when you should've seen it, and then see it.
It's from Mel Brooks, way before they did the Broadway thing with one of his movies, The Producers. So, at last, he can get back to what's important: Spaceballs.
It's a Mel Brooks movie, so it's got the puns, and the silly, silly comedy. It's a relentless parody of sci-fi movies, mostly of Star Wars, but other stuff is in there, too. Unlike some of Brooks' movies, it stays funny for the whole movie.
Also, it's got hilarious comedians Bill Pullman and Daphne Zuniga, and incisive dramatic actors John Candy, Rick Moranis, and Joan Rivers.
It remains quotable and delightful. Everyone knows the "schwartz" one, but I'd like to show some love to "Give me that, you petty excuse for an officer!", the combing the desert one that isn't funny if I censor it, and the ape quote at the end that also isn't funny if I censor it.
