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.

It wasn't made before the movie
26 September 2010 | by FoxfierSee all my reviews

Where it's funny, it's not original; where it's original, it's not funny. Most of the time that it's not original, it's not funny, either.

My husband and I watched this and about half way through the second episode, the only thing we could think of that could explain how horribly flat and unfunny it is was a theory that it was some sort of animated storyboard, and they'd done this to get the idea across before the movie was made.

That is honestly how I found this page-- words can't convey my shock that the cartoon was made this recently!

Put down the DVD, go grab the movie-- or stream it on netflix, of whatever-- and save yourself the time.

Even my husband, who is expert at enjoying horrible movies, couldn't stand this.
