* 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.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Thanks to what's considered canon in the new ''Star Wars'' universe under Disney, this movie no longer counts to any degree. 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.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The special has never been released on any home media, except for one copy that George Lucas gave to CarrieFisher. She reportedly used it to get unwelcome guests to leave her house.

* {{Jerkass}}: The stormtroopers and imperial officers here are unusually vicious and mean-spirited. Highlights include threatening to shoot people for being annoying, strong-arming shopowners for grooming products, and tearing up a kid's room for little reason.
