SpaceBalls: The TV Show

We read on Broadcasting and Cable’s website this morning that Mel Brooks is working on turning Spaceballs into a television show. And get this -- it’s going to be a cartoon.

This is something we can all get behind, support, maybe write a little story about (like this!). It was our favorite movie when we were 11, and the only thing besides Ghostbusters that gave us reason to appreciate Rick Moranis.

Brooks himself will be voicing some of the characters as well as co-writing the pilot with musical movie genius Thomas Meehan, who has worked on a ton of stuff with Brooks, including The Producers.

It’s not due until the summer of 2007, but if we could set our TiVo now, we would be right there.

I absolutely love the movie. I also think Mel Brooks is a comedic genius, that has no equal.

Spaceballs: The Animated Series will (finally) be airing on September 21st. I saw an ad on G4 a couple of days ago and then came across this article.

http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/6 ... To_G4.html

G4 will bring viewers a Balls-out Sunday on September 21 with a special presentation of MGM’s 1987 cult classic feature film, followed by two hours of all new, never-before-seen chapters of Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series.

A collaboration from MGM, Berliner Film Companie and G4, Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series picks up where the cult classic feature film left off, delivering hilarious parodies of today’s pop culture. Executive Producer and Co-Creator Mel Brooks reprises his roles as Planet Spaceballs’ nefarious President Skroob and Yogurt, Daphne Zuniga returns to voice the lovely Princess Vespa, and Joan Rivers is back as the voice of Dot Matrix.
