  • If I could rate it at only 0, I would.

    But apparently, I can't. Spaceballs (the movie) was just downright awesome. It managed to be very reminiscent of Star Wars (my favorite sci-fi movie series of all time) and yet managed to satirize it very well.



    Spaceballs The Animated Series, however, is a deliberately watered down version of the movie and I've only watched the first two episodes before I immediately lost interest. Sorry, but that's the way it is.moreless

  • they ruined my favorite movie...

    2.0
    spaceballs is one of my favorite movies of all time and this completly unfunny and stupid abomination ruined spaceballs, i had very high expectations for this series but it did not even come close to reaching my expactations, its like someone from earth, wants to get to millyways, it was that far away, this is an absolutely horrible series, mel brooks USED to be funny but apparently hes not anymore and ive lost all respect for him because of this disaster, it wouldve been better if they used my script i made for spaceballs 2 (i made a script for a spaceballs 2 and its way better then this steaming pile of excrement, so please at all costs avoid this series if you dont want to kill yourselfmoreless
  • Did the surgically remove Mel Brook's funny gland?

    1.0
    When I first heard of this, I figured it was going to be more of the stupid G4 crap. Then I made the joyous discovery that this was all Mel Brooks' doing. Created, writing, directing, producing and starring!

    In fact it even has the same actresses who played Vespa and Dott!

    I was thrilled!

    Then I started watching the first episode, so excited I couldn't even see straight.

    Here's me reaction to the series:

    (opening sequence of pilot)

    *laughing hysterically* Not what I imagined, but it's hilarious!

    (first 30 seconds of pilot) *still laughing hysterically) YES! This is Spaceballs!

    (next five minutes) *smirking slightly* This is moderately entertaining.

    (rest of pilot episode)

    *vaguely amused* Okay, seriously not as good as the series...

    (next episode)

    *just plain annoyed* Why am I still watching this? Sense of morbid curiosity strikes again!

    (Third episode)

    *seriously ticked off) Jeez, Mel! Why'd you do it? This isn't funny, it's not even reminiscent of the your film!

    (first 30 seconds of fourth episode)

    *jams rusty nails into eyes* GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    (second 30 seconds of fourth episode)

    *dies*



    That about sums it up.moreless
  • SPACEBALLS invade 2008 with mixed-up results...

    6.0
    Seeing this new incarnation of Spaceballs on G4 was a shock at first and, in comparison to the god awful CODE MONKEYS, is an improvement. However, the over use of schtick and not introducing more original characters makes it miss the target. SPACEBALLS does a better job of relating to topical subjects than CODE MONKEYS, which is just vulgar for the sake of being so. Another asset is the sexy quality of character design and heavy innuendos, but the flash animation could use a little improving. Note on the cast which contains a number of top notch voice actors, of which one who does many of the additional female character voices has yet to be listed on any online list, delivers the goods which again outshines G4's CODE MONKEYS.moreless
