I too think Jar Jar was a really stupid character, but there are many other, and far more serious, problems with the OT besides old amphibian features.

Big time.   :-X  Even more than Ewoks, and that's really saying something!   :D

Jar Jar must die.  Very soon...

I don't think that Jar Jar sucks, I think Best and Lucas screwed the character by making his voice like that and act the way he does at times.  Jar Jar is in a way a important part of the series of movies since he helps the Jedi get to Amidala and got the Nabooians and Gungans together to work towardss a better Naboo.  He then gives Palpatine the power that he needs to end up beoming Emperor.  So I don't really hate Jar Jar but more the actor and director ways of playing the character.  ;D

The Ewoks were not that bad.....they were cool characters and really went along well with Endor since it was a forest planet.  The only thing majorly wrong with the Ewoks is that they WON the battle of Endor!  They hit well armored stormtroopers with pebbles and the stormies were knocked out cold ::)  This disturbed me in ROTJ. >:(

Jar Jar would be easier to eat than an ewok because there is less shaving involved prior to preparation and consumption.

Plus, Jar Jar is more dispensable because he sucks  :P

Are you kidding me?  Jar-Jar is the schiznit!!!  LOL!  Yeah, they made Jar-Jar just a tad bit too annoying.  Oh well, he is not in the story line much anymore.  God willing.

I can tolerate Jar Jar, but had I been in charge he'd have been much more subdued.

I'd also either have given him subtitles w/less dialogue, or he'd have been like Chewie and R2 where you understand what he's saying by the context of replies from other characters.

He's a well-drawn character though, that's for sure...  One of the best CGI effects in modern film IMO.  Just the concept fell a bit flat on how he'd behave.  Could've been improved though, and he'd be an OK character then.

Fantastic opinion Jesse. I never thought about Jar Jar that way but your right. If they also eased up a bit on the comedy act, it would help blend it in with the OT.

Sure, he sucks now, but in 20 years everyone will be wanting Jar Jar T-shirts for the nostalgia value.

I recently viewed the Battle of Naboo portion of my EI DVD again.  Jar Jar should have been shot about 50 times in that scene.

I wonder if gungans smell like fish filet after a blaster bolt connects.

Jar Jar Binks was one VERY annoying character, but I really liked the Gungan species though.  If Jar Jar was just a normal Gungan (something similar to Captain Tarpals), he would have been a good character.
