Premonition of crap foretold

So I foolishly returned Return of the Jedi before my eldest had finished watching, which meant I was on an emergency mission to Movie Madness in hopes of getting it. No luck. In order to avoid the rage of the small one, I grabbed the only Star Wars content I could find, Droids, the TV show. It's a mid-80s Saturday morning cartoon and aside from 3C-PO and r2-D2, it looks like any other cartoon of the period. The show consists of one slapstick pratfall after another, often with plot consequences, giving us a hint of Anakin's blowing up the droid command ship by mistake in Episode 1. At least my son enjoyed it. Without small children around, you best stay away.
