* CharacterAsHimself: Though the opening cast call names Chewbacca and C-3PO's actors, R2-D2 is credited as playing himself. One wonders what Kenny Baker thought of that.

** In retrospect, not being credited in this trainwreck can be seen as a Life Day miracle for Kenny Baker.

* ThousandYardStare: MarkHamill, during the scene where Luke communicates with Malla over the TV screens. While he blinks several times, the way he gazes directly into the camera, wearing heavy makeup and mascara, gives him the illusion of being a stoned model.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: An extremely unfortunate side effect of the makeup job used to conceal Mark Hamill's scars from his recent car accident. Did they really need to get mascara involved? (In canon, the scars would be explained by the Wampa attack in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', but that doesn't happen until ''after'' this special.)

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: A side effect of KeepCirculatingTheTapes, the original commercials from the one airing show a lost world of union-made underwear, Ma Bell and fake-wood-paneled Mercury station wagons.

* StockFootage: All of the space battles are lifted straight from the first movie. Darth Vader's whole appearance in the special is a brief DeletedScene from ''ANewHope'' with his one line of dialogue redubbed. This, along with the different context, "cleverly" changes it so that he and an Imperial officer are talking about locating Han and Chewbacca rather than C-3PO and R2-D2. Also, said officer died on the Death Star, resulting in [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Unidentified_Moradmin_Bast_look-alike this.]] What's even more hilarious is how not-Bast's vocals don't match up with his lip movements.

** As of 2015, the cartoon segment was explicitly decanonized. In the Marvel ''Star Wars'' comic, we get to see Luke and Boba Fett meet, and there's no way it could be described as a friendly meeting.
