It's true! And Mel Brooks is involved in the production, too!


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mel Brooks, whose comedy hits include "The Producers" and "Blazing Saddles," is bringing his sci-fi spoof "Spaceballs" to television in cartoon form.

"Spaceballs: The Animated Series" will air on the G4 television network beginning next fall, it was announced Wednesday.

The 1987 film, which starred Brooks, Rick Moranis and John Candy, parodied "Star Wars" and other sci-fi movies. The new animated version will poke fun at blockbuster movies, reality TV, politics and pop culture.

Brooks, 80, will write the pilot episode and voice two of the show's characters.

"Spaceballs: The Animated Series" is the result of a partnership among the G4 network, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Brooksfilms Ltd. and Berliner Film Companie GmbH.

I can't wait for this. I've always loved the whole comedy/science-fiction mix used in Spaceballs, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Futurama.

Wow, sweet. This AND new Futurama?

Now if only they'd make a final Evil Dead, I'd die a happy happy nerd.

This could be good.

Makes me wonder though what it will look like (read: drawing style, etc.)

Could this possibly be the best news since the pilot episode of Scrubs? I believe it could!

I prefer the movie.  I love Spaceballs!  The movie is great!  It just won't be the same without John Candy, though.  Is it going to be a kid cartoon or an adult cartoon?  It's coming to G4 next fall?  Probably be a part of "Barbed Wire Biscuit" lineup.  I would much rather wait for new Futurama. 

Making a cartoon about a movie made 20 years ago would be like trying to make an animated series about  "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World".

I really can't fathom why everyone digs this that much. I mean, I'll concede that Spaceballs certainly had some funny moments, but Mel Brooks has made better movies, and the recent Producers remake was kind of lame. To me this just suggests that Brooks has nothing left to offer, and is simply mining his old successes to somehow remain in public conciousness.
