The Star Wars Holiday Special

I was talking with Karen about her fasination with all things Star Wars, alhtough she says it's for her son Ethan. I know the deal. So, I told her about the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978 which sahe had never heard of or seen. Until now, thanks to You Tube. Here's the synopsis I got from the page...

Plot Outline: Chewie and Han Solo are trying to get home to Chewie's family, so they can celebrate Lifeday, a holiday that is celebrated on Chewbacca's home planet Kashyyyk. Chewie and Han Solo are trying to get to the planet where Chewie's family is waiting for him, but the empire is out searching for the rebels, giving everyone a hard time. While we are waiting we get a look at the everyday life of a wookie family. We meet all the familiar characters from Star Wars and we are introduced to Bobba Fett during a small cartoon. We also pay a visit to the Cantina and meet all the monsters again.

Obviously, this guy was a biig an of this. And, was very drunk when he wrote this, cause it needs a warning: "This thing stinks like Bantha breath".

I warn you now...This makes "Phantom Menace" look like "Crash". It is that cheesy. Which makes it that good, in my opinion. This is the full special, which Harvey Korman in drag, Carrie Fisher stoned, Jefferson Starship doing bad seventies rock, a commercial for action figures and Bea Arthur. If you love bad tv and "Star Wars", this is for you. And for Karen.

What I would do to watch this on the Satellite Of Love.
