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.

So, apparently women are things.
7 December 2014 | by danielraffaeleSee all my reviews

Within 3 minutes of the first episode I was so horrified I had to immediately switch it off and delete it. Far from a continuation of the beloved cult classic, this abomination is nothing more than a platform for big boobs and masturbation jokes. They managed to pack more misogyny into 3 minutes than most cartoons do in a season. There is a reason I hadn't heard of this show until now - it deserves to be forgotten. How the late Joan Rivers could put her name to this is beyond me. How Mel Brooks thought this train wreck would be a good follow up to the Spaceballs legacy is equally baffling. An atrocity in every sense of the word. Even though I got it for free, I feel like I should be entitled to a refund.
