Star Wars: Ewoks

“We’re the E-E-E-E-Ewoks, and we’re one big, happy family…”

George Lucas’ marketing genius may have had roots in the 70s, but in the 80s? Well, that’s where he made his big bucks.

And tops on the moneymaking list were none other than the cutest teddy bears this side of Teddy Ruxpin.

Oh, those adorable Ewoks.

When we first saw them waddle through the woods in Return of the Jedi, we knew it was only a matter of time before we saw Ewok toys in every major toy store in the country. And spin-off movies. And, yes, the inevitable Saturday morning cartoon.

Sure enough, in the fall of 1985, we got it. Star Wars: Ewoks featured Wicket and all his friends and family in a series of zany adventures.

Of course, being a cartoon, the cute quotient was amped up to almost obscene levels… but, to be fair, there a few bad guys for Wicket to contend with–not the least of which were those annoying Duloks.

Yes, everything always had a way of working itself out in the end, and yes, Star Wars: Ewoks only lasted 26 short episodes, but in Lucas’ world, life is good. So good, in fact, we feel like dancing.

Zub Zub!

We ♥ Star Wars: Ewoks.
