** One of the few things that isn't hilarious ''[[SoBadItsGood anyway]]'' Itchy's "Holographic ''Wow''" features a "[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} proton pack]]". Yep, you might say "[[ADateWithRosiePalms bustin' makes him feel good]]."

** Ackmena (Bea Arthur), even more so since Arthur's death. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic seems to consider her the only remotely enjoyable thing in the entire film, as do WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob and [[WebVideo/CinematicExcrement The Smeghead]]. And it doesn't just apply to fans; people who work on the ''Star Wars'' franchise loved her so much that they added her to the expanded universe, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ackmena wherein she's stated to have gone on to join a group dedicated to freeing Tatooine slaves]].

** The animated segment served as the introduction of Boba Fett, the biggest ensemble darkhorse of ''Franchise/StarWars'' in general.

** The animated segment served as the introduction of Boba Fett, the biggest ensemble darkhorse of ''Franchise/StarWars'' in general. So much, in fact, that despite Lucasfilm wanting to forget about the special, the cartoon found its way onto one of the Blu-Ray bonus discs as an EasterEgg.

* RetroactiveRecognition: A behind-the-scenes example. One of the writers for this special was Pat Proft, who would go on to have a career working with the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker trio.

** Same can be said about the animated segment - looking at you, '''[[EnsembleDarkhorse Boba Fett]]'''.
** Also the random stormtrooper who fights Han and (due to the way the scene is shot) apparently ''[[EpicFail trips over his own gun]]''[[note]]though it also appears he could have tripped over a few logs next to his feet after being disarmed by Han's weak karate chop[[/note]], thus nailing a perfect RailingKill. The WilhelmScream he makes is the cherry on the parfait.

* {{Squick}}: Elderly Wookiee Itchy looks like he's masturbating to holographic alien porn, which is completely wrong and disgusting no matter how far away your galaxy is. He's also watching it ''in the middle of his living room'', in front of his daughter-in-law and '''[[HarmfulToMinors grandson]]'''. Worse yet, this is apparently a common enough occurrence that they don't even bother commenting on it.
** Even worse... this is exactly how the writers and producer ''wanted'' it to come across. [[SarcasmMode Merry Christmas, children!]] And they would have made it more explicit if not for one of the few necessary instances of ExecutiveMeddling.
