It does have one redeeming feature. The introduction of Boba Fett in the cartoon.

Fett

But the cartoon is so poorly animated. It's like if that old video game, Dragon's Lair melted and they left it like that. I don't think the cartoon comes anywhere close to redeeming one minute of this abomination.

In a twisted manner, the fact that Fett despises animals so much fills me with glee. It's one of those horrible character traits that fits so well...

Hands-down on either the creepy soft-core wookiee grandpa fantasy, or the wookiees in snuggies at the end for the most mind-numbingly awful parts for me.


...And damnit now I have a compulsion to watch it AGAIN just to prove to myself how very awful it is! D=

If you would like to hear somebody else rant and rave about how bad it is, watch this:

Could you pm your address again

Thanks

That... Was awesome. I'm surprised I'd never heard of Santa Christ before this.

Phyllis, I think every Star Wars fan sould watch it at least once to appreciate how good the films were and how bad they could’ve been.

The sad part is there was so much potential in the Christmas special.

I have a copy somewhere in the deep black hole that is my garage. I don't know that I would be able to actually watch the whole thing again.

We watched it (translate - fast forwarded thru it to get to the Luke, Leia, Han scenes) this past Christmas for the first time... Good Lord, it was bad... I mean I love b-movies that are so bad they're good (Toxic Avenger is one of my favorites), but the Holiday Special was just weak and was wayyyyy too long -- If they only had gone a half-hour tops, they wouldn't have had to resort to time killing sections, and it mightve been watchable...
