* VindicatedByCable: Upon release, many reviews were middling (particularly as ''Star Wars'' had been dormant for a while - of course, this was before [[ShallowParody narrow parodies of recent films]] became the norm...), to the point the Stinkers Bad Movie Awards named it the worst movie of 1987 and the movie is named in our wiki as Mel Brooks' CreatorKiller. On video and television, it managed to achieve CultClassic status and is well-regarded among Brooks' work.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qmKs7_pjhM Spaceballs theme song]] that plays during the escape pod scene.
** The Score (especially the beginning and end theme).



* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Given how the effects were done by Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic, [[ParodyAssistance who also created the special effects of Star Wars]]...
** ''Spaceball One'', the prop looks just as good the ships in ''Franchise/StarWars''.
** The obvious track aside, the dancing Xenomorph is actually a pretty decent puppet for a comedy.

* RetroactiveRecognition: That's Tim Russ, aka [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Tuvok]], as the black Spaceball who says "We ain't found shit!" No, really.
** Also Bill Pullman, who went on to play not [[Film/IndependenceDay one]], but ''[[Series/SixteenHundredPenn two]]'' American presidents years later.

** Pizza the Hut's brief appearance, in some ways, mirrors Jabba the Hut's deleted scene from ''Film/ANewHope'', despite the fact that audiences and fans never layed eyes on that scene until the special edition was released in 1997; 10 years after ''Spaceballs'' hit theaters!

** And, now that ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is out, some have noted similarities between Kylo Ren, and Dark Helmet. Both wear masks that they periodically remove, both talk to inanimate objects when alone, both prone to whiney outbursts, etc.

* HilariousInHindsight: Yogurt says that, "God willing, we'll all meet again in ''Spaceballs 2: Da Soich for More Money''". And they do indeed meet again...in ''Spaceballs: The Animated Series''.
