Or else Pizza, is gonna send out, for you.
~ Vinnie threatening Lone Starr and Barf

Vinnie is the robotic Mafioso-like subordinate of Pizza the Hutt and a minor villain in the movie Spaceballs. Vinnie appears to suffer from some sort of mechanical glitch which often causes him to twitch between sentences. He dresses like a stereotypical mobster, wearing a formal striped black suit, black gloves, sunglasses and a fedora. He seems to enjoy eating his boss's cheesy body.


In the film both Vinnie and Pizza the Hutt threatened to kill Lone Starr and Barf that if he did not pay his debt of 1,000,000 space bucks to them by tomorrow, effectively making Vinnie and Pizza responsible for Lone Starr and Barf accepting the King Roland, the king of Druidia's request and setting in motion the events of the story.

By the end of the movie, Pizza The Hut is killed when he was trapped inside his limousine and ate himself to death. It's unknown what became of Vinnie afterwards. Although its likely he either became unemployed or was made the new head of Pizza's organization.


  • It's unknown who, or what, Vinnie is suppose to be parodying from the Star Wars movies, but it's possible that he parodies the bounty hunter; Boba Fett, or Bib Fortuna.
  • His stuttering speech patterns and mannerisms are similar to Max Headroom.
