A long time ago in living rooms not too far away, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS once…and never again.

For those of you lucky enough to have missed that broadcast, a brief history lesson: SWHS depicts the saga of Han Solo trying to get his Wookiee companion, Chewbacca, back to his wife, father and son on their home planet Kashyyyk to celebrate Life Day. This involves robed Wookiees gathering around a tree listening to Princess Leia sing, Bea Arthur slinging drinks in the cantina and Diahann Carroll seducing an aging Wookiee through a virtual reality headset.

It's probably the worst thing ever made for TV. George Lucas has said he wants to 'smash every copy with a hammer', Carrie Fischer was too high to remember shooting it and one of the writers sent us an apology letter for it's creation. Yet thanks to the Minnesota Film Board we fans and sadists soldier through it year after year, turning it into a charitable Toys For Tots event.

We hope you choose to take a piece of the holiday misery home with you!
