‘Spaceballs’ to become TV cartoon

LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) — Mel Brooks is developing an animated TV series based on his comedy feature “Spaceballs.”
Like the 1987 movie, which parodied well-known science-fiction movies, “Spaceballs: The Animated Series” will spoof current blockbusters as well as every genre of entertainment from movies and reality TV to culture and politics.
It is set to debut on cable network G4 in fall 2007. Production has already started on an initial batch of 13 episodes.
Brooks, who will voice two characters in the show, co-wrote the pilot with longtime collaborator Thomas Meehan, who will oversee all writing for the series.
While I think this is a great idea, and also Mel Brooks has been enjoying his time with The Producers on Broadway, I would like to see another spoof from him too. Give him the Scary Movie franchise and let him go nuts. At least let him write one or help with one. I don’t want Dracula: Dead and Loving It to be his last film.
