In The Goldbergs episode “Spaceballs,” Adam (Sean Giambrone) becomes a big fan of Mel Brooks after watching his 1987 Star Wars parody “Spaceballs.” So much so that he wants to start a Mel Brooks fan club. To help promote the club, Adam makes a killer Dark Helmet costume. The helmet is voiced by Ric Moranis, who played Dark Helmet in the Mel Brooks movie!
