The Star Wars Holiday Special Aired On This Date in 1978 - Watch It Here!

It's weird, it's boring, it's even a little offensive. It's the Star Wars Holiday Special, and it turns 40 today.

On this date in 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS, never to be seen again, as the embarrassing piece of 1970s kitsch was widely panned by fans and critics alike. Nostalgia can cover many shortcomings, however, and the special lives on in bootleg DVD copies and online.

It just so happens that a fairly good copy is still available on YouTube. You can watch it below.

Be warned: This is not the Star Wars you are looking for.
