New Spaceballs Spinoff Animated Series continues to look awful

The first commercial for G4's long in development Spaceballs: The Animated Series has recently gone online here (very NSFW). If you set aside the offensively bad and stiff Flash animation, you still have an incredibly juvenile looking series that retains the Spaceballs franchise in name only. The most depressing thing about this latest trailer is that the series was penned by none other than Mel Brooks himself, he's even including two voices in the series. This is not even just a dumb advertisement on G4's behalf either, but it represents the entire marketing campaign for the series (again, NSFW).

Mel Brooks would be rolling in his grave...if he was dead...and he didn't write this.

Added Note***

Taken From Wikipedia:

Spaceballs is a 1987 science fiction parody film of Star Wars co-written, directed by, and starring Mel Brooks. It was released on June 24, 1987, and earned only modest returns, but has gone on to become a cult classic on video.
Its plot and characters contain numerous parodies of elements from the original Star Wars trilogy and Star Trek in particular, as well as other popular science fiction films. The script was written by Mel Brooks in only six months, and was approved by George Lucas, as he was a big fan of Brooks's previous films.[1] Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic was also involved in the special visual effects for the film. As of 2007, an animated sequel TV series is in preparation.

Wow, that trailer looks really awful. I can't even tell what the series is about. Is it just about women's chests or what? Seriously, waste of programming. I guess thats why its not going to be on regualr tv.

I thought Mel Brooks was still attached to this project. Weird

Ezra Edmond said...

yeah he is still doing 2 of the voices....

Yeah, I somewhat trust him in his judgment. I would still give it a chance.
