It's just not Christmas without Art Carney and a family of Chewbaccas.

I never saw this. Itchy? Lumpy? Maude? Life Day? It was as bad as it was rumored to be, and I am pleased I only suffered through it in 5 minutes. I did, however, enjoy the righteous cameo by R2 and 3PO at the end.

Even as a kid, I knew this was bad. Really, really bad. I felt like Ralphie when he decoded Little Orphan Annie's secret message.

Love those 70s music graphics. I remember seeing this special and being very disappointed.
