[Return of the Jedi]

There are some people who complained that the excessive use of foam rubber Muppets in the cantina scene of Star Wars detracted from the otherwise realistic science fiction universe. Well, if they didn’t like that, imagine their reaction on viewing the cute, fuzzy little Ewoks in Return of the Jedi. Not even the Munchkins from The Wizard of Oz could give the Ewoks a run for their money. After the Big Explosion in Jedi, the film degenerates into a Cuteness Festival of dancing, singing Ewoks, from which these lyrics are taken. Mr. Lucas obviously realized the error of his ways on the re-release of Jedi; the entire Festival was silently scrubbed and replaced with scenes from a galaxy-wide celebration. Tragically, this macro will no doubt be lost to future generations. This is a great macro to inject into slap-happy conversations or follow TV jingles. If you can’t picture the Ewoks, think of Kathie Lee Gifford or Urkel in a Boo-Boo suit.
