There's also a Latin American Spanish dub, who was dubbed in Los Angeles CA, probably for Hispanic audiences in the U.S. and it was never broadcasted outside the U.S. It was also the only foreign language dub in existance as well.

** Bea Arthur: Averted.
--->"It was a wonderful time, but I had no idea it was even a part of the whole ''Star Wars'' thing... It's odd. I've gotten so many letters and requests for autographed photos from that thing. I just remember singing to [[RubberForeheadAliens a bunch of people with funny heads]]."[[note]]She was a veteran of some very strange 70's variety shows, so it was probably all a blur to her.[[/note]]

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Practically the poster child.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Practically the poster child. The only thing about it that's even seen an official re-release is the Boba Fett cartoon segment, as an EasterEgg on one of the Blu-Ray bonus discs.

* CanonDiscontinuity: With Disney's decision regarding the Expanded Universe, it most definitely falls under this category now; [[FanonDiscontinuity Not that anyone would dare acknowledge it anyway.....]]

** A more benign example happened (although it's not completely beneficial so much as lesser of two evils): The entire Mind Evaporator sequence was originally intended to be quite explicitly a porn tape. However, it was toned down in order to meet CBS's censorship standards, although the implications of what the Mind Evaporator actually was are still present.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Let's just say this part of the ''StarWars'' saga hasn't aged nearly as well as the original trilogy. Basically, if you ever doubted that ''Star Wars'' began in TheSeventies...this should prove it. Conclusively.

* CreatorBacklash: Even though Creator/GeorgeLucas had no direct involvement with this special, he still hates it. Understandably.
** Carrie Fisher once asked for and received a copy of this special from Lucas sometime down the line as payment for a DVD commentary -- she says she uses it to drive out guests at her parties who overstay their welcome.



** However, it was voted #2 behind ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas'' for Christmas specials to be exhibited during the holiday season at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC recently.
