Holy smokes. You think Phantom Menace was bad (and it was)... wait until you see the Star Wars Holiday Special. I bought the remastered edition on VCD, and let me tell you it tears apart the fabric of the galaxy with its godawfulness.

Favorite moments:

Boba Fett whacking his dinosaur complaining "...all they ever do is eat."

Remember the holographic chessboard from the movie? Lumpy (Chewbacca's son) watches a projection of neon-jumpsuited sideshow kooks dancing to a 60's era Moog experimentalist fantasy. It lasts forever and really sucks.

Bea Arthur, the cantina bartender, pouring drinks into Harvey Korman's funnel head while asking him to stop hitting on her.

While in front of the entire family, Itchy (Chewbacca's dad) fires up a virtual sex simulation chair. A seductive earth woman teases and then sings to him while he grunts and groans. This was highly disturbing. I'm still trying to block out the memory of it.

Evil stormtroopers systematically destroying Lumpy's toys.

Harvey Korman again, hosting a cooking show as a large black four-armed transvestite chef with a humongous heart-shaped hairdo. "Whip, stir, whip, whip, stir".

Harrison Ford telling the wookiee family "You're all a very important part of my life" and hugging absolutely everyone.

I thought Lucas pulled that **** and bought-out every existing copy!

I guess it's like a train-wreck, it's awful but you just can't look away...

Where the hell did you find that enormous piece of crap anyway?

Heh, that was actually made by George Lucas himself? Never heard of it--I thought from the description it was something more like Spaceballs--ever saw that one btw?

My ex had, on vinyl, a copy of star wars disco. It even featured Will Lee (from the letterman show) on bass. I think it was star wars...

I think this is where Mel Brooks genuis fell short... He should have had Space Balls: The Cristmas Album with the Space Balls: The Inter-Species Erotic Christmas Special. Face it, *Fox* would air such a thing!
