No problemo
 I still enjoy watching this just for the retro Fett aspect of it all, rather funny to me though

The retro part is a trip.

A friend of mine gave me copy of this fiasco a couple years ago.
And the thing I liked best was that he inlcuded a bunch of the old SW
toy commercials on it. So my family enjoyed that more than anything else.

Holy crap, it's been a long time since I've seen the animated portion of the special. The clip from the link is from KCMO TV, located in Kansas City, MO where I watched it for the first time so many moons ago. Thanks for the link Nekron.

When I downloaded this, I made my gf sit thru it with me.  I think we bonded over it, you know, like people tend to do when they survive a traumatic experience?

Every now and again, we quote it and joke about pouring drinks into the tops of our heads.

My DVD copy was supposedly transfered from a master tape at CBS... and it looks really really nice, especially compared with some of the bootlegs I've seen. Of course, you can polish and dress up a turd all you want, it's still a turd.

That said, last year I made my girlfriend sit down with me on Thanksgiving Eve and told her that I watched this every year on that night, like a tradition (I don't really, but I wanted to see what she said). Needless to say, if it was a real tradition, I'm sure it will be broken this year  :D

Well about a month back my friends and I decided that we would really like to see this because we had never seen it before so my friend downloaded a copy from somewhere and it took hours and hours. After that was done the new challenge became putting it on a DVD. I had tried everything, or so I though, but I think I finally found somehting that worked. In not 100% sure but if it did work I would be able to make a copy of it so if anyone hasnt seen this mess and would like to let me know and I may be able to get you a copy on DVD.

That's some serious cheese to wait all that time for. I picked one up for 10 bucks from a bootleg booth at a show a few years back. Pretty funny stuff when you think of Art Carney and Bea Arthur being part of the Star Wars universe!  ;D

Well I finally had time to sit down and watch this and it was everything it was rumored to be. I thought the best scene in the whole thing is when the stormtrooper trips over his own gun and falls to his death

I remember being a kid and watching this when it first aired. I had waited ALL WEEK for Saturday night to come just so I could watch this. My parents went out for the evening so my brother and I were stuck with a babysitter. Of course she had ZERO interest in SW and back then, there was only 1 TV in the house (weird to think about that) and she kept switching the channel. I don't remember what to, but I think it had something to do with KISS. Whatever. I remember at every commercial she'd flip over to her stupid KISS show and always 'forget' to turn back to THS and when she would we'd see a minute or two before the next commercial. >:( I was sooooo p*ssed off at her that I remember complaining to my parents about her when they got home. :P

The funny thing is, the parts that she did let us watch were just uncomfortably embarrassing. Even as an eight year-old, I knew it was bad. Even the BS knew it and kept saying 'this is what you want to watch?" but I was so into SW I kept saying 'yes' even though the d@mn thing kept getting more embarrassing as it went on.

I don't remember what to, but I think it had something to do with KISS.

If I'm thinking proplerly, wasn't it that movie "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park"? Because I can remember being torn about which one to watch and having to flip back and forth myself as they were both on the same night. I was a HUGE KISS fan when I was a kid.

I don't remeber the SW special because mainly I was 3yrs old and parents wouldn't let me watch anyway of it then if I wanted too because they where pretty strict then or well my dad was, but not mom. I have seen bits and parts of the KISS movie because my GF HAS the VHS tape of it.

It probably was.  :roflmao: I was going to say that but wasn't 10% sure. I wasn't even sure if it was even KISS related, but I remember she was a HUGE fan of KISS so the odds were pretty good that's what she was watching.
