I remember this from when I was about 5 years old (1986) or earlier. I saw it on a VHS recording, recorded by my older brothers here in Sweden.

It had a spaceship that was yellow (maybe white) and round, the same shape as the one in the MiB movie with round windows that I think had red frames around them all the way around the ship.

enter image description here

I also think there was a crew, consisting of three or more characters, on the ship and a robot (or a mascot, maybe?) and they were on an alien base/planet that had something like a maze or something because they were chased around.

    I grew up with a cartoon, recorded VHS movie that fits your description. But I can not find it anywhere. It was a yellow space robot called Pluck or Puck (in Swedish) that had three boxes on its stomach. And I think his ears was some sort of radio. The helpers were a boy and a girl who I think were from the earth, they dressed in blue vs. red clothes. They traveled in a yellow spaceship that you have drawn, Anehall. And I also remember the maze they run throw from the planet they landed on. But this is all I can remember.

Are you thinking of Ulysses: 2031, by any chance?

It's a retelling of the classic myth, and there is definitely one episode that has them meeting the Minotaur, who is in a maze that keeps changing its shape.

It's from 1981, so definitely early enough for you to have watched it.

Here is an image of the spaceship (credit goes to Willman Ostorga on Pinterest):

And you can see the crew on this page - this red character is a robot, who I remember being there for comedy purposes:

  • No its not that spaceship... Watched the trailer and it wasent ringing any bells either...

Looks like the OP identified the cartoon they were looking for in the comments section back in 2020, but until now, no one has posted a proper answer.

According to said comment, the correct answer is Pluk, naufragé de l'espace (1979).

From Wikipedia:

Little Orbit the Astrodog and the Screechers from Outer Space (French: Pluk, naufragé de l'espace) is a 1979 French animated science fiction film directed by Jean Image. It is based on the 1972 TV series Arago X-001.

The film is also known in English as Pluk in Cosmos and Pluk in the Space.

Pluk, an extraterrestrial robot endowed with extraordinary strength, is stranded on Earth. He befriends the boy genius Niki, his girlfriend Babette and Niki's smart dog Jupiter. They all leave Earth in Niki's spacecraft l'Arago X-001, searching for Pluk's ship Le Cosmos. They stop on several planets before reaching Plukastre, the home planet of Pluk.

The yellow spaceship sketched within the question can be viewed around the 1:43 mark in the video below.
