It's a shame there is only 4 episodes. The 4 episodes are not exactly faithful to what you know about Spaceballs, but that does not mean they should be dismissed, as I laughed all the way through each episode. There is a couple of times you get a little disorientated wondering why Lonestar and Princess Vespa are not married, or why Sanders and Helmet would call for Lonestars help... but aside from that, Mel could have had a successful series here, had it been given a chance to get some of the kinks out like most first series do... but oh well, what can you do about it now?
Mel returns as the voice of President Skroob and Yogurt, as with Daphene Whats-her-name as Vespa & Joan Rivers as Dot Matrix.... the rest of the characters voices you can get used to, except for Cornell Sanders voice, that one really needed to be re-cast.
Surprisingly the humor was not censured out. I was expected a completely G rated cartoon here, but it's more a PG rated one that pushes the boundary of it. I was surprised at the sexual innuendos and language portrayed, which just made me like it. Had they gone a little bit more raunchier and smuttier, it could have contended with South Park and such shows.
As long as you go in not expecting a masterpeice, then you should enjoy what this show has to offer. Just sit back and remember, it's just for laughs.
Shame there is no bonus features at all :(
The art of parody is almost lost, and Brooks was the King. Do yourself a favor and pick this set up.
I do think it's a terrible shame that only 4 episodes are included in this set. There were 13 in all, and I think it would be a much bigger seller if they were ALL included.
Visually, it was surprisingly good looking, especially considering that it's not even HD, and the animation is passable, but again, the writing and lack of overall humor left me wanting more. All things considered, I'm fairly sure that your money would be better spent on the 25th anniversary edition of Spaceballs (I've been told it's an impressive collection), or elsewhere.
And one last message to all the longtime Spaceballs fans: May the schwartz be with you!

Mel Brooks is a Master of Humour. This film marked a point in film where parody and slapstick were perfectly balanced with decent production. Are the effects as good as Star Wars? Read morePublished on December 28, 2013 by KP Lindsley
This is a horrible transition from the movie, it appears that the writers were hired from porn sets. The sexual innuendos were way over the top for a rated PG movie. .Published on September 25, 2013 by a oconnor
