Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: A meta case, considering how much a lot of special effects are done in post-production digitally nowadays is that everything, even the sounds of static and the terrible quality of the communicator, in the Jammed Radar sequence was done by Michael Winslow right there and then. He effectively adlibbed what would normally take hours of post-production work.
** The major evidence is when he drops an PrecisionFStrike when the screen fails, since it smoothly transitions from the fake static he was doing to simulate the sound the screen SHOULD have been making.

* TheObiWan: Yogurt, who is pretty much Yoda as a crusty-but-lovable Yiddish guy. (Well, honestly, what did you expect from Mel Brooks?)

** A specific mention is probably deserved by the wonderfully insane combined reference to ''Film/{{Alien}}'' (complete with Creator/JohnHurt) and ''OneFroggyEvening''.
** And of course, the [[OverlyLongGag single longest gag in the film]], the opening establishing shot of ''Spaceball One'', is a ShoutOut to the shot of the Star Destroyer in ''Franchise/StarWars: [[Film/ANewHope Episode IV]]''. The shape of ''Spaceball One'' and the music that plays during its reveal also shout out to ''{{Jaws}}''; the ship is shaped like a shark, and the music is a slower horn-version of the ''Jaws'' theme.
