    Mel Brooks is resurrecting his 1987 Star Wars spoof Spaceballs and bringing it to the small screen in the form of an animated series, according to today's Variety.

    Rumors of a big-screen sequel to the film have persisted for years, but Brooks apparently thought the material was better suited for the animated television format.

    Variety reveals that the Brooks hopes to create an a show that parodies the new wave of science fiction and fantasy films like the Star Wars prequels and The Lord of the Rings movies.

    Brooks will reportedly be working with Thomas Meehan, who co-wrote the Spaceballs movie, on the new series. The pair will produce the pilot and supervise the writing of the other installments. They'll create an hour-long pilot episode as well as 13 half-hour episodes.

    The project is reportedly being created for TV through a three-way collaboration between Brooks, MGM TV and Berliner Film Company.

    The good news for fans of the original is that both President Skroob and Yogurt will be back, both voiced by Brooks.

I know there's already been talk 'round these parts about the possible Spaceballs movie sequel, but I think this would actually have a better chance of being successful (i.e. funny) ... A possible addition to the "Adult Swim" lineup? Hmmm.

If it's a cartoon version does this also mean we're going to get SPACEBALLS the Action Figures/accessories/flame thrower?

Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!

Personally, I'm hoping they'll put out Spaceballs: The Bedsheets (with the two blondes included...whose picture I couldn't find. And I combed the Internet.

And I mean combed.)

Or at least gimme some Liquid Schwartz. (Did that come out right?)

Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

No more icon? This episode was a little sappy/cheesy, but was redeemed by the opening segment cameo of Wonder Woman complete with the 70's Linda Carter theme song (which kicks all kinds of ass). I've heard this is the last season.
