Horrible! I couldn't even watch the first 5 min movie, I cringed more and more. I was 14 when the first Star Wars came out but have never seen this before. I can understand why Lukas hate it lol

I have it on a VHS tape. I picked it up at Star Wars Celebration 1 in Denver. The Special was horrible. But it was worth it.
For free stuff...

Another thing comes to mind about that decade. Variety shows - like the Star Wars Christmas special were hugely popular back then. If you were a has-been celebrity and needed a career boost or a paycheck you did a "special" one time variety show. Today they would invent a "reality" show to accomplish the same end. Or it is was a great way for the networks (all three of them) to promote new talent.

And of course there were many well established variety shows by popular celebrities, The Carol Burnett show being one of the best and most famous. So for that time period it was completly logical to premiere a cheap and fast variety show to promote a franchise or celebrity.

Yup, variety shows were huge. I remember the star wars xmas special as a kid of 9, i remember thinking it was great at the time and wondered why it wasn't on the next year as certain holiday shows back then were annual things. Wizard of oz was always on around thanksgiving, the grinch and the claymation rudolph shows were always on around xmas.

Honestly i thought those 2 ewok tv movies were way worse than the xmas special. The ewok adventure and the battle for endor. Surprised lucas never made a jarjar show as he seems to have a knack for taking things the fans hate the most and try and make it into something.

OMG I hate the cassette sound track for the christmas special, now you know how old I am. On a seperate note, any one remember the muppet show where Mark Hammel guest starred and save leia (miss piggy) from dirk nader (gonzo as darth)? That was all we talked about in school for 2 weeks after.
ACK...I pre ordered and still don't have my super awesome mohawk grenade yet!!!
