Spaceballs: The series---who likes it?
I caught the 2nd half of an episode yesterday on G4. No closing credits, just company logos, including MGM. I don't know who they got to replace the late John Candy (since it sounds like the rest of the cast, including Mel Brooks, Daphne Zuniga, & Joan Rivers, is on board), maybe Frank Caliendo, I don't know, but the casting saved this from being a total dog.
I know flash animation is all the rage, but it goes out the window when you don't do enough to animate the backgrounds. Looks like animated colorforms to me.
Ya know, I didn't realize Skroob (Brooks) was such a jerkwad, but then how long's it been since I saw the movie in theatres?
I'm sorry, but I don't see a long-term future for this show. How about the rest of y'all?
It's Tino Insana, who previously voiced Uncle Ted on Bobby's World and Bushroot on Darkwing Duck, among other things.

A huge fan of the original movie, I grinned and beared it through the first two-hour-long marathon, then told my best friend (who's an even bigger fan): never again...
Bottom line: it's a bad 80's Saturday Morning cartoon (complete with terrible animation) with immature adult humor thrown in...
I have a feeling that if this show actually had been produced for Saturday mornings back when the movie was actually relevant, we'd have gotten a better final product.

This show looks ok, nothing I'd watch though.
I give it 1 season.

Ok show, some good episodes and some pretty lame ones.
