*** He apparently didn't mind the Boba Fett short, though -- it was featured as an EasterEgg for the Blu-Ray release of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.

** There are three notable bootleg tapes: the New York tape ([[WesternAnimation/SouthPark fighting the frizzies, at 11]]), the Baltimore tape, (used by Podcast/RiffTrax) and the Chicago tape (highest quality available at [[http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?m=xxswhsxx FuzzyMemories.TV]]). There's also a Latin American Spanish dub, which is also the only known foreign language dub in existence.

** As mentioned above, the special was supposed to be more what one would expect from a Star Wars holiday special: It was supposed to be Kashyyyk's turn to host the festivities of the galaxy's holiday, Life Day, with Chewbacca as the main host (since he is a hero due to his part in destroying the Death Star), the Empire hates Life Day but cannot openly ban it without causing huge backlash and uprising, so a female Imperial Officer (who Lucas wanted to be played by 60's/70's sex symbol, actress, dancer, and singer Creator/RaquelWelch) would volunteer for a secret mission to sabotage Life Day by sneaking aboard the 'Starship Muscia', a ship filled with Life Day stuff which Luke and Leia have placed R2 and 3PO on to make sure it gets to Kashyyyk on time, and it's worth nothing that had this gone as planned this would have been the first appearance of a Female Imperial. Chewbacca was to meet up with his family in the first ten minutes of the special, dropped off by Han. Chewie and Lumpy would have then gone to meet up with a Trader, who became Suan Daan, who would have had a bigger, less comedic role in the special as he worked on Life Day, but since his family was destroyed by the Empire years ago he has no one to celebrate with, so plans to go to the Mos Eisley Cantina to drink with his buddies. Lumpy would have begged for the video book (which would have been what the cartoon would have been viewed on, but Chewie denies it to him, only to get it for him in secret as a surprise gift, but Lumpy, hurt, sneaks aboard Daan's ship before it takes off. The infamous, VR chair/soft core porno thing Itchy watches in the final special was going to be viewed by Chewbacca, but instead of the notoriously suggestive woman it would have been a rock music number (possibly the Jefferson Starship appearance), and afterwards the machine would give Chewie a nightmare about Lumpy, and that's when Chewbacca and his family realize that their son is missing. Daan would have discovered Lumpy (who was watching the cartoon segment on another video book) and decides to take him back after he drinks with his friends, which is where the Cantina sequence would take place. It would eventually lead to Lumpy and Daan on the Starship Musica with R2 and 3PO as Raquel Welch distracted the crew with a sexy dance while she sabotaged it in secret. Chewie would board the ship and save the day, egged on by encouraging messages from Han, Luke, and Leia.

** The documentary "Empire of Dreams" originally had a 10 minute segment dedicated to the Holiday Special to emphasize what could've happened to the franchise if Lucas hadn't maintained control over it, but it was cut out for pacing reasons.
This list shows the last 10 events of 84. Show all.
