Storyline

In this cartoon version of the wildly successful comedic film of the same name, 'Spaceballs: The Animated Series' hilariously spoofs popular movies and TV shows as only the warped genius mind of Mel Brooks can do. Taking place in the futuristic world of Planet Spaceball, and with all of the movie's original characters returning including President Skroob and Yogurt (both voiced by Brooks), the show will satirize such household names as 'The Lord of the Rings,' 'Spider Man,' 'The Terminator,' 'The Pirates of the Caribbean,' and 'American Idol,' parodying these mega-hits with light-hearted political and social satire as well as slapstick comedy. Written by Barry G.

Beyond painful. Unfunny, unwatchable, stupid. Awful. Terrible. Why?
18 September 2013 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

So, first of all. I know Spaceballs is not the Citizen Kane of comedy movies. It's more like UHF - a campy comedy classic that's somewhat under-appreciated, and yet funny after all these years. Quotable; sort of a loving parody of all those movies it lampoons so well.

The cast made the best of a good script. Rick Moranis was funny while he was on screen, Mel Brooks was OK, and the rest of the group played their part to varying degrees of success. Daphne Zuñiga was a better Princes Leia than Princess Leia ever was, actually.

It's a movie I can still laugh at. Not bad, after all these years.

But... THIS?

What in the world is THIS?

The first two episodes are so bad they are actually painful to watch and make you wonder what in the world compelled Joan Rivers and Daphne Zuñiga to agree to appear here. Basically they retell the original story. Except for the fact that nobody is funny. Not even one voice is worthy of a smile. No single line is funny. There's no comedic timing. They almost ad-lib the entire movie, but you finally understand how funny things were the first time around - every joke falls flat because nobody seems to care. The animation? A kid in his basement with Flash could do something better looking. The characters aren't funny at all. Dark Helmet is moronic. Every woman is reduced to a pair of giant boobs jiggling. Planet Spaceball is now "Planet Moron". I mean. Really? "Moron"? That's the joke?

Basically, the whole series remind me of a 5 year old trying to tell an adult joke. He may know the words, but he doesn't know what he's saying.

And that sums up the entire series. To me, it seems as it as made by people who were told they were doing a remake - continuation of Spaceballs, but never got the joke the first time around.

A complete, utter, total waste of animation.
