'The Star Wars Holiday Special' Hustled onto network TV back in the days when Lucas wasn't quite the master of his creations, the "Holiday Special" introduced viewers to the Wookiee planet of Kashyyyk (later seen in "Revenge of the Sith") as well as the rebel bounty hunter Boba Fett. Shot in the wake of "A New Hope's" initial success, the special featured the original stars. But viewers don't remember that. Instead, they remember the awful songs; comedy bits courtesy of Bea Arthur, Harvey Korman and Art Carney, and the dime-store animation. Lucas was unhappy with the results and the special has never been re-aired or officially released. A quick search of YouTube however, brings up some gems like this.
