Ten good things about the Star Wars Holiday Special:
1.The costume design and suit acting.
People hate that the wookies aren't translated,but did they really need to be? You can tell what they want,mean,and feel. Just through the body language and facial animatronics.
2.Bea Arthur sings a song and it kicks ass.
3.Art Carney's line when he's trying to hide Han Solo's name is better than the movie Solo's scene where he gets his name.
4.The Animated segment,is awkward and wobbly,but it's a good solid story and it introduces Boba Fett who would be quite an influential character.
5.can I count the commercials?
T.O.B.O.R. is robot spelled backwards. Look for the union label. Reggie Bar.
6.a stormtrooper smashes Lumpy's toy.
7.Chewie has a son named Lumpy,no doubt his full name is Lumpbacca. His father,Itchy's name is probably Itchacctheralm,or something needlessly long.
8.Jefferson Starship's Light this guy on Fire song.(sky on fire,I know I'm joking)
9.Its basically a slice of life(day) story set in the Star Wars Universe.
10.Harvey Korman as the Julia Chiod-esque tv cook,with her multiple arms,it makes me wonder if she was an inspiration for Dexter Jettster.
Bonus 11. One of Rifftrax's best.
