    I've never seen "The Holiday Special".
    But if it was for sale I would buy it. :)

    **Cringes**

    Yes, I would. While the entire thing is very lame, I would buy it. I have it downloaded on my computer...Damnit! I can't think of a single reason why I WOULD want to buy it, yet I would.

    I'd buy it because I dig the nostalgia of it and I'd like to have a reference copy. Please forward flames to one of the other Holiday Special threads ;) -Campbell

    Even tho most of it is "Cheezy" I would get it. there are some cool parts. The Fett Toon to name one.

    IMO the best price for it would be 9.95 or less.

    For something so bad its got a good approval rating for its market release. I would get it, simply because its Star Wars.

    I would only buy it if nobody changed it.


    I don't want The Star Wars Holiday Special: The Special Edition where Diann Carroll does a strip tease for Lumpy or Han Solo shoots the storm trooper first.

    Crazy.

    I said no because I lack a DVD player. Otherwise, I'd say yes.

    No. I'll never spend my money on that piece of junk. I'd only watch it again if my life depended on it.

    Oh man- I'd so love to have a copy of that. Everyone is so young and it's so corny. I barely remember it and would love to watch it again. I remember thinking Chewie's son was cute. :)

    I would only get it if there was an audio commentary track with all the writers explaining what the heck they were thinking and what drugs they were on when they wrote it.

    Yes, despite how bad everyone claims it to be I'm mildly curious. :D Afterall, it's still another Star Wars item to collect.

    Definitely NOT! I would never pay any amount of money for that piece of poo-doo.

    Though, I would like to see the Fett cartoon released, possibly as a supplment to any Droids/Ewoks cartoons that may come out on DVD (if that ever happens).

    Though, I would definitely buy the Holiday special on DVD just to get the Fett cartoon. I don't want it that bad.....

    I have a copy and I was watching the credits... is Lucas' name even attached to this fine piece of cinematic history? I didn't see it. Maybe a "based on Star Wars by George Lucas" but I don't even think he produced it.
