Be sure to watch Donny and Marie Osmond Star Wars bit, too. Chris Kristofferson is in it!

I remember that episode. It's burned into my mind.... It burns! It burns!

The best Star Wars tv appearances is on the Muppet Show. You can't beat Darth Nader and Angus McGonagle, the argyle gargoyle who gargles Gershwin.

A friend recently burned a copy for me and I can't agree...this is one of the worst offenses in the history of TV programming. It's screamingly hilarious bad.

Art Freakin' Carney? Jefferson Airplane/Starship/whatever?!?

Keep the cartoon and the Cantina bit with Ackmena...but the rest is pretty unwatchable, IMO. Like Geneva code violation bad.

Kinda makes me shudder at the prospect of going back and watching all those old DROIDS and EWOKS episodes...

That's why it's so fun to watch.  Just knowing George Lucas would smash that copy with a hammer if he could.

Always liked the animation in the Droids cartoon.

I never really watched the Droids cartoon. I think it was up against the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner hour.  Ewoks was alot more fun.
