As promised I was going to do a complete 25 Days blog post about the Star Wars Holiday Special. I've touched base on it before, once HERE before people actually started reading my blog and once HERE just a few days ago. The Star Wars Holiday Special is a steaming pile of rancor poo-doo and this is coming from someone who is "gay for Star Wars". In fact, George Lucas was quoted as saying "I would be happy if every copy could be tracked down and burned." This is why you cannot and will not find an official copy of the Holiday Special.

Meet Attichituck or Itchy for short. This is Chewbacca's father and a great Wookie Chieftain. He obviously aged horribly since we saw him in Episode III.
Here's Lumpawaroo or Lumpy as he's referred to in the Special. This is Chewbacca's son. You could say that Lumpy is the Jar Jar Binks of the Holiday Special.
And finally there's Mallatobuck or Malla, Chewbacca's wife. Now we see where Lumpy got his dashing looks from. If she wasn't a Wookie or hairy or eight feet tall, I'd hit it.
All in all, it's no wonder Lucas has treated this like a bastard redheaded step child, it sucks and sucks bad. He tried to make it true to Star Wars as possible while kowtowing to the general public but that just didn't work. There is one shining star amongst a sea of complete darkness with this, we meet Boba Fett for the first time in an animated short. Despite the animation sucking almost as bad as the Special itself, you get to see Boba Fett in his glory and already hunting Han and Chewbacca which makes us believe that Vader had already hired him prior to Episode V.

And in case you wanted to get a feel for the Holiday Special, here is a clip of it.
Now he's trying to shave The Trophy's pussy...
