Star Wars Holiday Special

Some of the younger folk here may not have "got" my "Life Day" reference in my Christmas picture submission in the Episode III thread. I was wondering how many of you are familiar with the Star Wars atrocity called "The Star Wars Holiday Special." Although you might be able to find it on Torrents, I thought I'd save you the horror of actually watching the evil thing by providing links to some synopses.

Star Wars Holiday Special (First Page I Found Tonight)

Star Wars Holiday Special (Completely Different Page)

Also a different page on this cruel, awful travesty

Star Wars Holiday Special Wikipedia

I had seen this show back in 1978 and only vaguely remembered it for the first appearance of Boba Fett. (Boba Fett? Where!?!)

We are all younglings when compared to the ancient Sith Holocron. mhmm.

I've seen it before. An atrocious piece of work, a disgrace. :rolleyes: Ok, maybe I'm being a little harsh. It wasn't bad...it just wasn't very good. A piece of Star Wars mythos that is best left forgotten.

No, don't redeem yourself. This special doesn't deserve credit Grevious. Continue to insult it!

For myself, I haven't seen it so I can't judge.

If you want true horror, experience the DVD as found in several torrents. The DVD I acquired also has the Kenner commercials sepaprately AND the Muppet Show featuring C3P0, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, and Luke's actor cousin Mark Hamill. (Yes, Mark Hamill plays two roles.)

Hehehe...I believe Wookieepedia describes it as "so poorly received that it was never rebroadcasted".

A local news program did one of their so-called "news stories" on it recently, but attempts to tape it failed, so I did not get to see it. Perhaps it's for the better.

The Holiday Special seems ripe for exploitation by MST3K (or their various factions online)
