Happy 30th Anniversary Holiday Special! Posted By Mike on December 3, 2008
Happy anniversary to the
Star Wars Holiday Special
which aired 30 years ago today.
In honor of this, um, special occasion, one of our TFN readers Shawn sent us the following musical tribute that would be sung to the tune of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band."
"It was 30 years ago today We didn't have a VCR to play George had given in to CBS Who tried to do Star Wars with less But it didn't take too long to see What a horror it would come to be Holiday Special, aww, you were so bad Wookiees talking with a Shriiwook* sound No subtitles to be found Everything was going awfully wrong Bea Arthur singing cantina songs But that night they introduced you to A bounty hunter in green and blue Holiday Special, aww, you were so bad Malla cooking with a Bantha stew Art Carney brought a gift or two Itchy fantasies to kids' dismay Diahann Carroll where are you today Lumpy watching animated Fett Harvey Korman took one in the head Holiday Special, aww, you were so bad Now Chewie made it home in time For a Life Day chorus line And people, if we've learned a thing, Don't let Carrie Fisher sing Thank the Force that you will never see Lucasfilm release a DVD Holiday Special, aww, you were so bad (* Shriiwook being the language of the Wookiees.)"
