Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Spaceballs: The TV Show is an animated series based on the uproarious characters and situations created for the classic 1987 film spoof of Star Wars. For the first time, comic legend Mel Brooks brings his mastery of the art of parody to the TV screen, as a co-creator and voice of two main characters. Each episode is an off-the-wall Brooksian send-up of a blockbuster movie or well-known TV series, including The Lord of the Rings, Terminator, Spider Man, and The Pirates of the Caribbean. May the Schwartz be with you!

I wanted to give the free pilot episodes a chance, but all they were were poorly re-written versions of the movie, without ANY of the charm. Daphne Zuniga, Dom DeLuise and Joan Rivers must've done this at gunpoint, because there's NO enthusiasm in their performances. On top of this, the VOICETRACK drops off at the last lines of each episode, INCLUDING THE PAYOFF "Oh ---- There Goes the Planet!" It's NOT a problem on my system, as the sound fx are still present, and I tried replaying them twice. So stay away. Even FREE it's NOT worth the price.
I'm not going to tell about the bad animation, et all... The most annoying thing is that both of the pilot episodes are missing the last seconds of speech at the end of the episode. The character's mouth is moving, the music is playing, but the voice is missing. They are missing the episode punch-line. Come on people - no-one checked the episodes before putting them on the store ?
This was truly terrible. The episodes I saw (which were free on iTunes) were a watered-down cartoon version of the same exact plot as the movie. Same jokes. Same story. Shamefully executed. Since this is absolutely nothing more than a lame re-hash of the movie, I honestly don't know what anyone sees in this that cannot be found (much better) in Brooks' film.
