Even More Hideous Than I Remember
By Steven L. Taylor

The year was 1978 and ten-year-old me was a true scifi geek in the making. That meant that I would’ve watched practically anything that was related to Star Trek, Star Wars, superheroes or the like. Heck, at that point I thought that the original Battlestar Galactica was pretty good!

I probably would’ve watched animated cowpies if they had had Star Wars costumes on them. Indeed, on November 17, my sister and I watched something that was a bit worse than that, the Star Wars Holiday Special.

George Lucas has refused to re-release this gem wherein we first saw Boba Fett, amongst other delights (including Carrie Fischer singing a “Life Day” song to the tune of the Star Wars theme-I kid thee not).

However, the glories of YouTube means that no video can be kept down by the Man.

Here it is in all it’s ignominy.

And here’s an amusing article, with some of the clips from Giant: It’s A Very Star Wars Holiday Special For All.

  3. I can still sit back and watch some original BG action. There’s something about Greek mythology mashed up with Old Testament Israelites with a side of Alpo. Or maybe I think the male Starbuck is pretty frakken cool.

  4. Oh, I can still watch it and even enjoy it after a fashion. I just no longer think that it is very good ;)

  5. What the . . . wow. That’s horrendously bad. I mean, what the heck is even going on?

    “Now let’s have 10 minutes of Wookies without any translation whatsoever. And then - a guy who drinks through a disgusting hole in his head!
