Spaceballs: The Animated Series (2008): S01E00 – Pilot


Spaceballs: The Animated Series, also known as Spaceballs: The Series, is an adult animated television series that premiered in 2008 on G4 and Canada’s Super Channel, and is loosely based on the parody science fiction film Spaceballs (1978).

Similarly to how the original film parodied the original Star Wars films and the Star Trek universe, each episode of the series parodies a different film or other aspect of popular culture, such as the Star Wars prequel trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, or the Grand Theft Auto video games.


A retelling of the movie with some key differences to set up the series. The primary changes are that Lone Star retains the ring of the Schwartz (though after his battle with Helmet, Lone Star is seen wearing the ring, meaning he got it back) and he does not turn out to be a prince. Thus, Vespa instead decides to stay single since she cannot marry him.

This marked the final acting performance of Dom Deluise before his death in May 2009.
