Remember spoofs before the Wayans brothers? It’s time to remember the good old days of, er...slightly more respectable parodies like the 1987 film Spaceballs, in which Mel Brooks, Rick Moranis, and John Candy poke fun at beloved sci-fi films like Star Wars and Star Trek. In an effort to keep the twisted adventures alive, Brooks created Spaceballs: The Animated Series. The show premiered on G4 in 2008 and goofed on modern films including The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Titanic. The series even branches out to tackle other forms of entertainment, like the game Grand Theft Auto or American Idol.

For some reason, the DVD only includes four of the 13 episodes but has intermission shorts between each. Here’s the lineup:
  • The Moron’s Guide
  • Episode I – “Outbreak”
  • Intermission – “Satisfied Customers”
  • Episode II – “Skroobinator”
  • Intermission – “Thanks For Your Order”
  • Episode III – “The Deep Ship”
  • Intermission – “Sing Along With Skroob”
  • Episode IV – “Grand Theft Starship”
  • And That’s Not All
  • One More Goodie
The lists comes to a total of 93 minutes of material. If you’re interested in Spaceballs: The Totally Warped Animated Adventures, the disc streets on December 29th and will run you $19.98.
