Film-maker Mel Brooks is in talks to turn his classic movie SPACEBALLS into a cartoon series.

Brooks starred in, wrote, produced and directed the 1987 film, and he's thrilled to see a renewed interest in the comedy.

He tells America's MAXIM magazine, "There's an animated Spaceballs TV concept in the works. I told them I'll be happy to look over the scripts and do some voices.

"I'd love to play PRESIDENT SKROOB - he's the perfect president - or YOGURT, the sweet little spiritual, magical man.

"I'm crazy. I'm liable to get into that make-up again when I record the voice - just to get back into the character. Okay, now that would be stupid."
