For all of George Lucas' money grabbing whoreness, he's refused to allow Hasbro to make any characters from the Holiday special, which means will never get Bea Arthur the action figure.

Oh, I'm sure it's out there somewhere, both in a Star Wars version and a Golden Girls version.
Having seen Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" music video several times, I honestly didn't think the Star Wars Holiday Special was real.

The Holiday Special is one of those things where you think people have GOT to be exaggerating how bad it is, and when you finally see it, you realize they were actually underselling it.
I get why he'd watch holoporn, but why do that in the living room?

I could understand Lucas, in his boomer-colored glasses, booking the likes of Art Carney and Tim Conway (who, in my opinion has always been insufferable). I can understand there actually being enough pot in Northern California to justify musical acts like Jefferson Starship or that proto-cirque du soleil number at the beginning....
How the hell did they ever convince Maude to be in this?
Bea Arthur sure wore a lot of shapeless drape-like garments. Droopy and willowy things.
Also, the "Han shot first" argument is entirely invalid, because Greedo is healed up and back in the cantina by Life Day.
This is pretty good for the early Star Wars films.
Maude's biggest abortion of television since her abortion on television.
