Set to debut in the fall of 2007, G4 has teamed up with Mel Brooks to create an animated series based on the 1987 cult-favorite Spaceballs. Simply titled Spaceballs: The Animated Series, 14 episodes were ordered. The one-hour pilot has been written by Brooks and Thomas Meehan (who co-wrote the original movie). Meehan will also supervise the 13 half-hour episodes, while Brooks will provide two voices; President Skroob and Yogurt.
The series will be produced by Brooks Films Limited and Berliner Film Company and will be distributed internationally by MGM Studios.
