The Ultimate Space Jam Party Supplies Guide

Latest posts by Candace Osmond (see all)

I was a massive fan of the original–yes, I know, I’m dating myself here–and I was stoked to share that fun and excitement with my kids when the recent remake came out.

Released in 1996, Space Jam was nothing short of an out-of-this-world story about Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes. Even more impressive, the film still retains its hit status in the pop culture realm 26 years later. It’s truly hard to comprehend how much success the movie has amassed.

To touch on that sweet Space Jam nostalgia for yourself, contemplate theming your next party after the cult-classic film. Here are all the space jam party supplies you’ll need to deliver an unforgettable experience. I promise you they’re all…out of this world (Sorry! I’ll see myself out)

The Iselitir Party Decorations set is my choice for the best item in this guide. I mean, it has EVERYTHING. Except for the cake.

What Do I Need to Throw a Birthday Party?

For most people, their birthday is among their favorite days of the year. And why not? It’s a day dedicated solely to them, complete with presents, singing, balloons, and cakes.

Space Jam Party

Are you currently stressing over how to throw a birthday party for a loved one? Here is everything you’ll need to maintain your sanity and ensure that everyone will have a great time.

  • Streamers
  • A delicious birthday cake
  • Entertainment rentals. These could include karaoke machines, bouncy castles, and magicians.
  • Party favors like bubbles and candy bars
  • Food and beverage party supplies. This includes everything from cups to serving platters
  • Invitations. Feel free to make your guest list long because only an average of 60% of attendees will respond “Yes.”
  • Signage that’ll mark parking areas and direct guests toward your private venue
  • Balloons (is any birthday party complete without balloons?)
  • Tables and chairs. If the furniture you already own isn’t enough, consider renting some.
  • Tablecloths and other centerpieces

Key Features of Space Jam to Look For

Not sure how you’ll get started throwing a 1996 or 2021 space jam-themed party? We’ve broken it down for you using these key features of Space Jam. Use them as inspiration.

The Characters

In both space jam films, characters ranged from alien antagonists to athletes portraying fictionalized versions of themselves. The characters also had varying likability ranges. They ranged from heroes the audience rooted for to villains the audience was meant to hate.

The first, most iconic character is Bugs Bunny. Bunny was easily one of the most lovable characters in both space jam films. He is a fun, charismatic character who constantly comes up with most schemes throughout the films.

He is also the Looney Tunes’ de facto leader and was eventually the one who persuaded Jordan to join them.

Space Jam Party

Another lovable character from the lineup is Lola Bunny. She is immediately intriguing in the film as she’s found working with Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson.) That proved to little children that she’s tough as ever.

In the second film, Lola also brings that toughness and her basketball skills to help save the Tune Squad’s day. She even gave a speech that got the team going.

Additional legendary characters you could incorporate in a space jam party include Granny, Daffy Duck, The Monstars, Swackhammer, Porky Pig, and more.

Fonts and Colors

To style the text, designers of the Space Jam logo used a font similar to Carol Twombly’s Lithos Black modification. It’s characterized by geometric shapes, wide lines, and many angles.

These designers added even more symmetry by cutting off some oblique lines and dropping the letters. What’s more? The inscription elements aren’t just skewed. They’re creeping on one another because letter spacing is absent.

Slam Dunk Party

The concentric rings are separated by thin light orange lines in the original Space Jam logo. They’re also painted dark red with a gradient. The logo’s center is orange, and the film’s title is green (an additional transition to a yellow tint is also there.)

The letters cast black shadows of varying widths and have been outlined with yellow outlines.


Most people already knew that space jam had characters we all would want: from Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny to the Looney Tunes. Most, however, were surprised when they dusted their Space Jam soundtracks and found that they were actually pretty good.

In this section of the guide, I’ll attempt to rank these awesome tracks.

The first was “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly. It’s unfortunate that R. Kelly turned out to be a major piece of garbage because he really is a talented artist. Separating the artist from their art, ‘I Believe I Can Fly” is a bonafide R&B classic.

The second hit from the Space jam soundtrack is “Space Jam” by Florida-based Quad City DJ’s. While the group has released additional tracks since then, they’re still majorly associated with the Space Jam theme song.

Additional music strongly associated with Space Jam includes:

  • Hit ‘Em High (The Monstars’ Anthem) by B-Real, Coolio, Busta Rhymes, Method Man, and LL Cool J.
  • Fly like an Eagle by Seal
  • For You I Will by Monica
  • Basketball Jones by Barry White & Chris Rock
  • All of My Days by R.kelly Featuring Jay Z and Changing Faces
  • I Found My Smile Again by D’Angelo
  • That’s the Way (I Like it) by Spin doctors Featuring Biz Markie
  • The Winner by Coolio
  • Buggin by Bugs Bunny

I bet you never knew Space Jam had so many bangers backed by serious talents. Am I too old to use the word ‘banger’?
