I made it all the way to 2:40 thinking it may be fun... Red Foxx, Kris Kristofferson, who knows what shenanigans could happen? Then the Osmonds sang again and I threw up a little in my mouth.

Wow, that was as craptastic as the Holiday Special.

Marie does make a decent Leia, though. :naughty

I remember it. Even remember a couple of lines ("shorter if the lights are with you", "but the landing part was perfect") .

Along with the Holiday Special.

And Vader being interviewed by Wolfman Jack.

I hang my head in shame. Proudly.

Exactly, then he got all protective and stuff. But the damage and money had been made!

OK time to date myself...

I remember this SO clearly. They hyped it all week on network comercials and in the old TV Guide mag. I was just a little kid, but Star Wars had already taken me over. I thought they were going to dedicate the entire show to a Star Wars reinactment! I remember being beyond pissed when all it was was a musical number at the end of the show.

I had to watch the entire show to get to this part! The singing, the horrible dancing, the bad comedy! I don't think they even cut "Little bit Country/Little bit Rock & Roll"! When I'm doing my taxes, I still take a deduction for that piece of my life that I can't get back...

I am trying to remember this show that came on in the early/mid eighties, it was a kids show and they had this rip off of R2-D2 on the show but, he was red and white i think..almost identical in design..anyone vaguely remember this as well?.

Man, that was horrible.

Kris Kristofferson would have made a bad ass Han Solo though.

Surely you're not referring to the great 7-Zark-7 from the legenary Japanimation triumph Battle of the Planets..??
