Despite your several insults, despite your horrid blasphemies, the lord of hosts is prepared to forgive all, and more, to reward your service.

No talking abou the SWHS, unless you specifically talk about the Boba cartoon.

Re: Holiday Special

No! You posted this kind of horror here for the innocent to stumble upon??? How could you! tongue

The HS is so horrible that everyone must see it at least once. You don't truly know how bad it is till you've seen it. ...just don't watch it a second time, oh the second time is even worse cause you know it DOES get worse with each coming segment, unlike the unwary who's eyes have yet to be burned who sits there going, "No, it can't possibly get any worse than this. OMG it just did!"

The Boba cartoon is the only good part.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Holiday Special

Why the F&%K is Boba riding a dinosaur? Is that supposed to be a krayt dragon?

Re: Holiday Special

Actually, if you read the fine print there, "This creature was first named on the "Holiday Special Boba Fett Character Key" from Acme Archives." That thing came out in 2008 or 2009? Thirty years after the character was made up.

Re: Holiday Special

The only thing good that came out of the holiday special was the Fett cartoon!

Re: Holiday Special

Hence why we're discussing it lol. Even George Lucas says the only two positive things to come out of the SWHS were the scenery of Kashyyyk (it's how he imagined it and Ralph McQuarrie drew it, and was ultimately used for Episode III) and the Boba Fett cartoon.

Re: Holiday Special

How was the Holiday Special version of Kashyyyk anything like the ROTS Kashyyyk? One's clearly a plant of extremely tall trees and the surface is something hidden far, far below where only the best of the warriors go and everyone else is scared to go down there and it's kind of treated like a sacred place where spirits live. .....and in the other they live on the surface of the planet right next to an ocean and the trees aren't really all that tall. If anything at all is the same it's the style of the buildings.

Re: Holiday Special

The best thing I've ever seen is that one guy doing the video commentary along with the entire special. It's hilarious.

Re: Holiday Special

I like in Weird AL's video white and nerdy. There is a part where he buys the Holiday special from a dealer in an Alley. He pulls it out of the Paper sack I laughed and Laughed.

Re: Holiday Special

You wouldn't be talking about Weird Al Yankovic would you? I'll bet he would come up with a way to something like the Holiday Special funny. The one good thing I can say about the Holiday Special is that it introduced all to the Fett. Too bad it couldn't have been better though.

Re: Holiday Special

Yeah it was Weird Al Yankovich. If you haven't seen White and nerdy you sould I recomend it.

I recommend it as well, it's very funny.

Yankovic, not Yankovich.  While we're at it, the plural of "Lego" is "Lego" (in joke to Miba)

Re: Holiday Special

I've never seen the entire special, only 'That Guy with the Glasses' review; pretty darn brain warping...  And that was with his comentary to help distract me

"You set a code to live by.  I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted...I won't be laid a hand on.  I don't do these things to other men, and I require the same from them."

Re: Holiday Special

I saw the entire holiday special when I was 10 years old. If it were not for Boba Fett and the fact I was an adamant Chewbacca fan at the time, I wouldn't have liked it even as a kid.

Re: Holiday Special

Here is a question we've been curious about for some time: Lucas had very little to do with The Holiday Special. He could see the writing on the wall, and he wisely distanced himself. So, this may be common knowledge, so please enlighten me if I've missed this, but who came up with Boba Fett, then? Because our first picture of Fett comes in The Special.

Did Lucas already have concept drawings of Fett in place before the special and the agency who made the cartoon just used those?

Or was the agency in question responsible for the concept of what Boba Fett would look like?

Re: Holiday Special

Boba's first appearance was actually in a parade long before that (that spring? summer?), so I would say he had already been in the making by that point. And also remember that the Holiday Special was in fall 1979 and ESB was in summer 1980, in order for that to have happened Boba had to have been invented long before the Holiday Special I would presume. Also, that cartoon segment was originally meant for another cartoon called Heavy Metal, it just ended up in the Holiday Special.

McQuarrie came up with the first concept arts of Boba, I thought, if that was what you meant.

Also, I wasn't aware George didn't have a lot to do with the HS. I never looked into it, though.

Re: Holiday Special

Oh yeah, George basically said "You can use this, this, and that" and had nothing else to do with the picture.

Re: Holiday Special

Cool, thanks for the clarification Miba. That makes sense. Yeah, Lucas made a wise choice on that one. The HS was a special kind of horrible.
