For info.

Weird, eh?
With Mel Brooks and the other writer of Spaceballs involved, this has just left me very curious. I wonder what it will be like? Or if it will suck. Though…I don't have that channel…don't know if I'll be able to see it. =/

Yeah…this doesn't really seem suited for an animated series. But heck, I guess I'll watch the pilot at least.

wow. First I've heard of this… and now I can't wait. I love anything Mel Brooks, especially Space Balls. This will be great, I bet.

Must be to coincide the release of the Spaceballs sequel. Personally, I don't quite know how to react to there being a series. I always looked at the film as being more of a parody than a franchise.

I seem to be the only person on this forum that tough Spaceballs was quite sucky, still I want to see that animated series. Don't know why, but it has to be the most idiotic series ever! It's just curiosity I guess…

Hm, weird. I absolutely loved the movie, but I'm not too sure about it being animated since I think the actors were part of what made it so funny. Then again, I don't get that channel either (curse you, lack of cable television), but I'm sure it'll show up on youtube sooner or later. =p

Wouldn't it be really tricky with Starwars? …?
I know it's parody, but Lucas films are still very litigious… The original movie may have gotten away with it, but a series might find things a different story.

Then again, they might focus more on some of the other parody elements- planet of the apes, etc….

You're darn right Lucas is litigious. One of the original deals for Spaceballs was that there actually COULDN'T be any merchandising. That meant no toys, breakfast cereal, or jammy jams.

I am not sure if a cartoon can be funnier than Rick Moranis. :/

Im sorry.. I cant resist it.. I just had to post this quote from the Simpsons…

“Boy, when Marge first told me she was going to the police
academy, I thought it'd be fun and exciting, you know, like that
movie, Spaceballs. But instead it's been painful and
disturbing like that movie, Police Academy.”

I am FS2 champion! w00t!!

I read that Brooks was making, Young Frankenstein into a musical, but I missed the animated Spaceballs. YAY! (Keep Firing Assholes!) I am a huge Brooks fan…Where's my History of the World II?

Sweet news, I think. I also want to see the character designs and art direction.

I heard about it and thought it was a joke. I guess the joke is on me.

I've read and I'm surprised. This is going to be interesting. But with I luck I'll probably miss the first episode. Or it might get canceled after watching the first few epsiodes. Either it will be very interesting.

I guess I am in the minority here, but I thought Spaceballs was probably the weakest of any the Mel Brooks films. Not really funny, really predictable jokes, etc.

John Candy was great though.

No, that'd be men in tights… :p

What about that one where he was a millionaire forced to live as a homeless bum for a month? That was ok, not the cleverest…

I liked Spaceballs! :) Die minority! Die! >:)

I like all of the Mel Brooks films…I personally find that the more you watch them, the more random things you notice. The weakest in my opinion is Dracula: Dead and Loving It…but even that one has grown on me a bit.

The weakest Mel Brooks movie that I've seen is probably History of the World. I actually found Men in Tights and Silent Movie to be very amusing :) But still the only Brooks film that was GREAT would be Blazing Saddles. It's the only one that keeps being hilarious.

Men in tights was an embarrassment… I went to see that one :(
Grr.
Back then I used to think movie critics were full of themselves. They said it was a poor film with stupid cliches, the same old stuff etc. and I ignored it because I new better (hah, so I thought)…
Well, they were right. When it got to the point of the Rabbi marrying the couple I was groaning in my seat! Fuck Mel, what did you think you were doing? To throw in that bit of overused idiocy… Jebus. None of the Robin Hood films that came out then were especially good though, particularly the serious ones. The Kevin Kostner one was just ludicrous. I think there might have been one that wasn't too bad though?

Blazing Saddles is a Brooks masterpiece! The original Producers was a really ok movie too. I like the silent film, especially the bit where the only line that's spoken was by Marcel Marceau. :)
I liked The History of the World.

I also liked the History of the World.

I think the best one was Young Frankenstien by far.

Dracula Dead and Loving it was very much the worst.

The only good Robin Hood movie is made by Disney ^^

btw: Haven't seen Brook's Dracula, because I don't want to ;) It probably IS worse than HotW
Oh, AND I haven't seen Young Frankenstein. I still intend to do that.
