More like : What in the hell were they smoking?! LOL!

The only cool thing about that whole special was the animated short...and even that was a bit trippy!

Right?! I was reading on Wikipedia that it introduced Boba Fett for the first time since his scenes were taken out in the original theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. They have some clips of the special on YouTube but I didn't get to the Fett cartoon; if it's even on there.

Ya' might just find it. I remembered seeing it recently somewhere...might've even been YouTube...and I forgot how warped the characters looked.

I've never seen it in full...........the clips that show on TV shows from time to time always seemed enough to make me stay well back!

That bad, huh? I'm surprised Lucas didn't approve of this, yet create the Jar Jar Binks character.
