Funny / The Star Wars Holiday Special

  • The infamous "Fighting the Frizzies at eleven" comment by the news anchor. This guy's been given an absolutely absurd sentence to read in front of millions of people, and he says it with absolute conviction.
    • Fitting being during a show with fuzzy-wuzzy Wookies. Maybe they'e the mythical Frizzies!
  • The scene with Harvey Korman as the cooking show chef is actually pretty funny.
  • The stormtrooper who actually fights Han one-on-one only to lose when he apparently trips over his own gun, sending him hurtling over a railing to his death, complete with Wilhelm scream.
  • The sheer fact that Darth Vader appears in the special (in stock footage with his only line of dialogue redubbed).
  • A more straight example: Deadpan Snarker all-business bartender/owner Ackmena can jab as only Bea Arthur can.
    Ackmena: (to customer) Well, I'm certainly not going to get rich with customers like you. I thought I taught you to drink faster than that. Well, at least you're steady.
    Ackmena: (to Krelman) We are talking. You're not ordering. I'm not pouring. We are not drinking. We are talking.
    • After the Empire imposes a curfew, Ackmena goes around the bar, asking each patron to leave so that she doesn't get in trouble. She begs each of them by name, reminding them of all she's done for them, until...
    Ackmena: Remember the time I...I don't believe we've met?note 
  • As Jack Packard in Best of the Worst pointed out, if you look hard enough, you can see the exact moment at which Harrison Ford stopped caring even the slightest bit about being in it.
    • Harrison Ford's hilariously uncomfortable reaction when Conan O'Brien surprised him with a clip of Han's tender moment with Chewie's family. One gets the impression that the studio audience's presence was the only thing stopping Ford from murdering him for that.
  • The Actor Allusion with Art Carney is pretty funny, even if they did have to crib it wholesale from The Honeymooners.
