TVMoJoe: 1)Cullen had polio as a kid and therefore had trouble walking (it’s why he is rarely seen doing so on cam.) Mel Brooks didn’t know this, either—until that time he decided to comically imitate his walk, thinking Bill was doing schtick.

ZombiManos: Oh i see, the new Mel Brooks movie is actually a tv series on hulu okay cool !

agreenberg: Chat GPT prompt: “Write a paragraph comparing the movie Spaceballs to the movie Rashomon.” Spaceballs and Rashomon are two very different movies that represent distinct cinematic genres. Spaceballs is a comedy film directed by Mel Brooks that satirizes the Star Wars franchise,…

AmplifiedtoRock: Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go fall asleep watching Mel Brooks discuss the automat.

woodruA: I ❤️ Mel Brooks! The fact that he's trending at 70+ in show-biz is pretty hardcore. You could learn a thing or two from Mel Brooks!

pk_sullivan: Very rude of Mel Brooks to release History of the World Part II when I was on vacation without wifi. I'm 30 seconds into the first sketch and I love it already. Swole Mel is so perfectly Brooskian.

MythinformedMKE: Mel Brooks’ History of the World was praised for being an edgy comedy in 1981. The fact that Hulu’s new Sequel (History of the World II) caters perfectly to Woke ideology tells you everything you need to know about comedy in 2023.

BlueShiftBlog: I'm a huge Mel Brooks fan, but I watched the trailer for the new series, and I'm too terrified to watch it because I'm scared that I might hate it.

ForeverHollywo3: Paired with Mel Brooks the greatest comedic minds of the 20th and 21st Centuries. His films with Steve Martin are epic.

khmusen: Today my friends informed me that several scenes that I thoroughly believed occured in Star Wars are, in fact, scenes from Spaceballs. I think this is how Mel Brooks would want it.

mills95ifcyx: Young Frankenstein: A Mel Brooks Book: The Story of the Making of the Film ECNUPBA

PaulMasters57: "History of the World Part Two" is horribly unfunny. I can't see how Mel Brooks can hang his name on this mess. It's just bad.

toliro: History of the World Part II sucks. The last thing Mel Brooks did that was funny was Spaceballs. And that was almost 40 years ago. Wait! Brooks did something funny in 2015 in a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode. “It’s 2015? Shit! I got appointments!” Just that one line.

ajh1138: Loved "History of the World Part II" season one (Hulu). The sketches-with-arcs format is a great way to keep things moving. The callbacks, crossovers, and Mel Brooks film references are added delights to the irreverent shenanigans.

cicadadyke: (rewatch) Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) directed by Mel Brooks

PaulFludeLawyer: Marty Feldman on Young Frankenstein and Working With Mel Brooks | Carson...

kevinbaker: Everyone talks about how you couldn't make Blazing Saddles today, or whatever, but the real Mel Brooks thing you couldn't do is the opening shot of Spaceballs (after the scrolling text).

WaterHaulPro: Just out of curiosity, what would a Mel Brooks version of the “Left Behind” movies look like?

ElBaulDeLurodAA: Marty Feldman on Young Frankenstein and Working With Mel Brooks | Carson Tonight Show

TodayThatWas: Mar. 18/1968 - The movie The Producers is released. Starred: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder & Dick Shawn. Directed & written by Mel Brooks.

MikeCosper: I watched Mel Brooks 1983 “To Be or Not to Be” last night for the first time in a long, long time. I forgot the charm of the movie — much of it from Mel and Bancroft — but Lewis Stadlen’s performance of Shylock’s monologue from Merchant of Venice bowled me over. It could…

JaimsVanDerBeek: Joey Ryan "got canceled" and is in the new Mel Brooks movie on Hulu. Canceling is weird.

Freelineorlando: March 18 1968 was the premiere of The Producers. Only Mel Brooks could do a comedy about Hitler and win an Oscar for his screenplay. Zero Mostel, Gene WIlder and Kenneth Mars are a scream; Wilder's hysterics got him an Oscar nod. The "Springtime for Hitler" musical is a hoot.

filmizon: The legendary Psycho (1960) shower scene and Mel Brooks' spoof of it in High Anxiety (1977).

RealEOC: Riff-Raff (Ken Loach, 1991) Life Stinks (Mel Brooks, 1991) The Big Lebowski (Coen brothers, 1998) "Scattering ashes"

DennisMadrox: Quite sure if Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" would be brought out today it would be applauded by Woke Tik Tok idiots for addressing 'senstive' hyperbolic and racist subjects.

noeljossant: Mel Brooks - Its Good To Be The King

MuseumGuyScott: Thinking about a director themed movie marathon (3-4 movies) this weekend- choices: 1) John Carpenter 2) Mel Brooks 3) Tim Burton 4) Penny Marshall 5) Kathryn Bigelow 6) Paul Thomas Anderson 7) Paul Verhoeven. Probably enough time to watch the top two vote getters. So vote!!

c0un7z3r0: This looks like the start of a Mel Brooks musical number.

hradesi14: I want Ke Huy Quan in a Mel Brooks-style satire. Smart visual gags, frantic energy, goofy scenarios. Ke plays it straight. Just nailing it.

Bubbajonz: Mel Brooks Isn’t Done Punching Up the History of the World - The New York Times

MBotzArt: Discovered History of the World Part 2 on Hulu. I hope Mel Brooks took them for so much money for putting his name on that dumpster fire.

thermostat: If you're putting Jack Black in your show or movie and not giving him a song, what are you even doing? You think you're smarter than Mel Brooks? C'mon.

kel_roth: Ya see Uncle Lloyd owns the biggest Independent American Film Studio that makes B-Movies and even helped people out like James Gunn, Trey Parker, Quentin Tarantino, and Eli Roth early on. He's still kicking and is basically what you get if Mel Brooks removed his power limiter.

merl2012: Did you know that Mel Brooks had a TV show called Get Smart. In one o f the episodes government buildings were blowing up and falling. Nixon gave Brooks a tour of the wtc as it was being built.

Theaterkompass: THE PRODUCERS - Musical von Mel Brooks und Thomas Meehan

benwurgaft: Learned this week: Purely by accident, the art critic and writer John Berger ended up contributing a voice to Grand Theft Auto. Mel Brooks has sometimes signed letters "your obedient Jew." The latter will be easier for me to emulate; the former seems more of a stretch.

Gather4Justice: Catch up (if you can!) with Mel Brooks, Rita Moreno, Dick Van Dyke, Harry Belafonte and more

Jacob_deNobel: Mel Brooks producing The Fly is one of life’s great secrets

falcongrovepro: TV Review: The legendary comedian Mel Brooks follows up on his 1981 comedy with ‘History of the World, Part II’

quallsastros: Mel Brooks finally gets his History of the World part 2. Hitler on Ice! I watched the first episode and will rewatch the original film later. Was already chuckling at the cavemen bits

ThatChristian12: This really sums up everything wrong about the movie. Blazing Saddles deserved better, and so did Mel Brooks.

TrivagoD: in one corner you have a self made comic genius like mel brooks and in other one a talentless imbecile like nick kroll whose entire career is bought by his breathtakingly corrupt father. Such a deeply sad testament how money corrupts and how the uber rich can buy anything.

ScottJCollette: Never forget that Mel Brooks hired David Lynch to direct THE ELEPHANT MAN and David Cronenberg to direct THE FLY, then removed his producing credit from both films to ensure that the films were taken seriously.

IzzyDonenberg: Call me Mel Brooks cause I’m a producer.

XavierDLeau: mel brooks is fun. i love robin hood men in tights.

LASTEXITshirts: David Lynch's 'The Elephant Man' starts at 12:05 on BBC2, well worth recording if you've never seen it. Did you know that Mel Brooks produced it and left his name off the credits? He was afraid people would think his involvement meant the film was a comedy. - Jamie

VladDavidzon: My wife caught me singing “springtime for Hitler” after reading the new Mel Brooks piece and rolled her eyes with “if only your ancestors shot in Belarus could hear this”…. Really killed the mood.

Emily Dickinson Poem
I-ll Tell You How The Sun Rose
 by Emily Dickinson

I-ll tell you how the sun rose, -
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.

The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
