* 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.

* TheSeventies: A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... the denizens are dressing in pure 1970s fashion.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

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

* CanonDiscontinuity: Thanks to what's considered canon in the new ''Star Wars'' universe under Disney, this movie no longer counts to any degree. And while concepts and ideas are free for use, it's pretty unlikely to go beyond a few basics.

And In spite of this, Malla and the rest of his family (though not explicitly named beyond the former) are referenced in later canon works meaning that they are still Chewbacca's family, and while concepts and ideas are free for use, it's pretty unlikely to go beyond a few basics.



** Yes, that's still really Chewbacca's family. This said, the old official canon sources trying desperately to put a positive spin on things turn the names given here into nicknames along the same lines as "Chewie": "Malla" was lengthened to "Mallatobuck", "Itchy" is short for "Attichitcuk", and "Lumpy" is short for "Lumpawarrump". [[UnfortunateNames Not that it helps.]]

* BroadStrokes: While George Lucas is doing his best to make sure nobody knows it was made, many elements are accepted in canon... with the understanding that they happened during something that wasn't a crappy variety show. Though see CanonDiscontinuity below for what Disneyd with it.

* OffTheShelfFX: For taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a lot of the tech in the Wookiees' family home looks extremely familiar...

* ForTheEvulz: While searching the house for Chewie, the Stormtroopers make sure to go out of their way to completely trash Lumpy's room for no reason other than to be dicks.
** Also, the only possible reason they close Bea Arthur's cantina.
** The executives when they mandated the script rewrite.

cantina.



** One could easily imagine the room where this thing was written to be one...
*** Or the CBS board room where the idea for this special was discussed and approved.
