    I remember seeing the special when it first aired too. Even as an eight-year-old my reaction was a nose-wrinkling “HUH???” and a wish that I might never have to sit through anything that embarrassingly bad (and dull!) again. And I haven’t! I’m thankful.

    I am also thankful for the Muppets episode featuring Mark Hamill in character as Luke Skywalker accompanied by R2-D2, which I HAVE watched more than once. Because it’s the Muppets.

      I don’t remember the Muppets episode, but no doubt it was better than the Holiday Special. Pretty much everything was, lol.

      But on the other hand it was the 70s. There was plenty of truly abysmal entertainment back then! 🙂

      • Well, yeah. I look back at the 70’s and early 80’s shows I loved as a child, and now they just make me cringe. But at the time, they seemed like dazzling pieces of entertainment that set my imagination on fire… except for the Star Wars Holiday Special, apparently! 😀

    Interesting… I don’t remember this Thanksgiving special at all and I saw Star Wars 11 times in the theater. ?

What do you think?
