    Great review, Ewok Poet - Thanks very much.

    Here's a link to a recent article form the SW Website about the Ewoks cartoon:

    http://www.starwars.com/news/from-w...evisiting-the-star-wars-ewoks-animated-series

    This brings back a lot of memories of that time period. I literally remember when the Ewoks/Droids cartoons came out in Fall '85 as if it were yesterday. I was a young teen at the time, and was a member of the Star Wars Fan club. Right around the time the cartoon(s) made their debut, I got the latest issue of Bantha Tracks (the then-SW newsletter), and that had a great article about the making of the cartoons.

    At that time, SW fandom was dying. 1985 was the last year that SW Kenner figures were released (POTF, and they were not easy to find), and other than these cartoons & the Marvel comic (which was also on it's last legs) there was very little new SW material out there. So, these cartoons were like a breath of fresh air to hardcore SW fans like me.

    I have been wanting to see both Ewoks/Droids released to DVD/Blu in their entirety for years, and it still hasn't happened. Back in late Summer 2012, it was rumored that both shows would be officially re-mastered & made available for streaming, but this never occurred....

    Hmmm. The same author as last time and once again, he totally doesn't get Teebo and he believes in the character swap thing which is as outdated and wrong as that Wookiees thing.

    He doesn't seem to get Latara either.

    Very nice blog article, Ewok Poet. It was interesting to read about your introduction to one of your favorite animated series and how it shaped you being a SW fan.

    And that SW.com article is good, but it would be even better if they celebrated the 30th anniversary of the show by also releasing the complete series on DVD (and give Droids, which also turns 30, the same treatment too).

    The Illustrated Star Wars Universe and The Essential Guide to Characters came out very close together - December 1995 and November 1995. Charal is not in The Essential Guide to Characters - but Cindel Towani is. I know Charal was a Nightsister as of The Illustrated Star Wars Universe at least - I'm not sure if any info about her made it into Cindel's entry in the earlier book.

    I thought Zack Gialongo first called her a Nightsister? Looks like I've been living a lie.

    Just read the first post of this thread (had missed it before for whatever reason). Wow - Ewok Poet, thanks very much for all of the comprehensive info. This is extremely good info. on the '80's Ewoks cartoon - very impressive. Thanks very much for taking the time to put this together. I especially appreciate all of the links :D

    Been a long time. Anyway, I made a MBTI chart for the characters from the cartoon.

    I enjoyed the show as a kid. I was at the right age to fully appreciate the Ewoks. I have always been a big Wicket fan in particular. It felt like some of the characters changed a bit between seasons 1 & 2. I'd like to see this in high quality again. I assume Disney has full rights to this and Droids, so it would be nice to see these released completely on DVD and streaming on Disney +.
