Merry Christmas – Star Wars Edition

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Can you survive the Star Wars Holiday Special?
Behold the bane of George Lucas, the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special!

It was 1978 and CBS was desperate to attract young viewers.  While this youtube video is only 15 short minutes edited down from the full 98 minutes, it’s still gives you a sense of the absolute craziness that made it to small screen.  It is still is regarded as one of the most terrible things ever to get put on TV.

Extra points if you make it all the way through.

Let’s wash that out of your brain with everyone’s favorite Star Wars song:

What do you get a Wookie for Christmas (when he already owns a comb)?

Merry Christmas!

    I watch it regularly — with Rifftrax commentary to make it palatable. Works, too! They also riff the commercials, which help to break up the disaster with forgettable toys, tv shows and unions.

    Sharing the Star Wars Christmas Special on Facebook. Because I hate everyone on my Friends list.

    NO one should ever see that again. It should be deleted from all internet history

    And yet I still rank Episode 7 – A New New Hope as the worst Star Wars I have ever seen…

    In retrospec, this should have been the first warning.
