Source: ABCCARAVAN OF COURAGE: AN EWOK ADVENTURE / EWOKS: THE BATTLE FOR ENDOR
What's most distressing about the dated presence of the Ewoks in "Return of the Jedi" is that the role the Ewoks and their home of Endor played in the film was originally supposed to be Kashykk, Chewbacca's home planet. On the other hand, we saw what happened with Chewbacca's family in the "Star Wars Holiday Special," so it actually might have been for the best. Contrary to the titles of the two spin-off made-for-television films, there was very little adventure to be found and the "battle" for Endor was nowhere near as cool as an actual battle, even if it did feature the guru of grump himself, Wilford Brimley.THE COLBERT REPORT
Last but certainly not least, Stephen Colbert has taken political and social satire to a whole new level with "The Colbert Report" on our sister channel "Comedy Central." One could very strongly make the argument that it's the most successful spin-off ever, since it's not only still on the air but airs every single night
and is a daily requisite for many (including myself). I mean, I don't have to watch "The Battle for Endor" every night before I got to bed, but I do have to make sure to catch "The Report."
