** The only person with an official copy of the special is Carrie Fisher, who got it from George Lucas in exchange for doing audio commentary on ''Star Wars''. She uses it to scare off houseguests.

--->"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]]

** Also averted by Creator/PattyMaloney in [[http://www.starwarsholidayspecial.com/text/patty_maloney.htm this interview]]:
--->'''[=SKot=] Kirkwood:''' I'll bet it was a lot of fun.
--->'''Patty Maloney:''' It was. It was a lot of hard work, but it was also a lot of fun. It was great to be involved with all of the other characters, too.
--->'''[=SKot=]:''' I can imagine. It sounds like everybody had a relatively good time working on it, at least.
--->'''Patty:''' Yes, we did. And we got along wonderfully, and we were all very pleased with the outcome of it, actually... I was. I was very pleased with it.

* 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.

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.
