Spaceballs and the Skroobing of Sci-Fi.”  Mel Brooks takes fans on a guided tour into the making of the Spaceballs saga, exploring the film’s inspiration, its production, visual effects (including the sizzling creation of “Pizza the Hut”), how the film directly tears down the adventurous (Star Wars), the scary serious (Alien) and even the apocalyptic (Planet of the Apes) in his own uninhibited way and its epic status as Mel Brooks’ most successful and beloved fan favorite film.  Additional bonus features include commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, still galleries, trailers, film bloopers and more.
