Spaceballs is a 1987 American comic science fiction parody film co-written and directed by Mel Brooks and starring Brooks, Bill Pullman, John Candy and Rick Moranis. It also features Daphne Zuniga, Dick Van Patten, and the voice of Joan Rivers. It was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on June 24, 1987, and was met with a mixed reception. It later became a cult classic on video and one of Brooks’s most popular films. Its plot and characters parody the original Star Wars trilogy, as well as other sci-fi franchises including Star Trek, Alien, and the Planet of the Apes films. In addition to Brooks in a supporting role, the film also features Brooks regulars Dom DeLuise and Rudy De Luca in cameos. Rick Moranis claimed in an interview that he pitched a potential sequel idea to Brooks called, Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II. However, Moranis added that he and Brooks were unable to structure a deal that would allow the project to move forward.

John Hurt appears in a restaurant scene where a small alien bursts out of his stomach, parodying his role as Kane in Alien. After the alien bursts out of his stomach, Hurt’s character mutters despairingly “Oh no, not again!”. The alien then dons a straw boater hat and does a vaudeville-style performance of “Hello! Ma Baby” down the length of the diner’s bar, in a reference to Michigan J. Frog in the Warner Brothers Looney Tune “One Froggy Evening” (including using the audio from the cartoon) before zipping away.
