Spaceballs: The Animated SeriesLike any obedient fan, I would follow Mel Brooks down any road upon which he chose to take one of his classic properties. I followed as he put Get Smart in the hands of the guy who directed Tommy Boy and the star of The Office, and that turned out just fine. And now I will follow him as he hands off Spaceballs to the folks at G4 — even though this first promo looks dumb.

Yes, I said it — it looks dumb. And don’t take this the wrong way, I am not going soft on my red-blooded, 18-25 year old male constituency — I still like boobs just as much as the next guy, but this promo doesn’t tell us anything new about what this series is going to be. All we know is that it looks like something that some mid-level animator at Cartoon Network would make on his own time and throw up on StripClubList.com because its too pointlessly perverse for his real job animating for Adult Swim.

But then again, that’s me. I am anxious to hear what everyone else thinks about it. Space Balls: The Animated Series is set to premiere on G4 September 21st at 5pm.
