| The Search for More Money
Spaceballs: The Animated Series has been given the Fan Nickname The Search for More Money from fans of the original movie. For those who haven't seen Spaceballs, the nickname references a scene in which the movie's Yoda equivalent, Yogurt, teases a sequel with that subtitle. The designs of the characters range from okay to awful, most notably changing Dark Helmet, originally played by 5'1" Rick Moranis, to a dwarf. The joke may have been about Helmet's large, well, helmet, but there was no reason to make him look like a bobblehead with or without it. The animation doesn't fare any better. In an annoyingly lazy move, it rehashes jokes from the movie. In fact, the first two episodes are basically a remake of the movie. The rest of the series is a Shallow Parody of other movies, such as The Terminator, The Phantom Menace, and even non-Sci-Fi films like Harry Potter. That is not only comparable to a Seltzer and Friedberg movie, but it renders the title of the show and the movie it was based on redundant.
