That's right Luke, that's right. You cause death and destruction wherever you go and you are completely oblivious about the suffering you have caused.

Did you know that the wampa has a wife and two beautiful little kids? Did you know that he has to pull double shifts at the mine every day just to make ends meet? Did you know that his goddamn insurance company refused to fix a prosthesis for him and canceled his policy? Bet you didn't know any of this, bet you don't even care. Just get out of my sight. Go on, go back to your band of thugs and killers! I SAID GO! * wipes tears, throws away Luke Skywalker action figure *

Shouldn't have fucking frozen his feet in the roof of your cave and eaten his Tauntaun, huh?

That was excellent. Thanks.
Had to look up Robot Chicken Star Wars and they're hilarious.

This was my favorite RCSW sketch, simply because it's about such a tiny detail.

Don't click unless you want to see an ewok screaming in agony!

How dare you dangle the sweetest bait in front of us Burhanistan.

Don't click yt unless you want to see an ewok screaming in agony!

Addendum, click repeatedly if you want to enjoy seeing an ewok screaming in agony!

I love Robot Chicken Star Wars so much. And argh, I would link to the clips on Youtube but most of them are giving an error. Bleh. One of my favorites that did work:

Father and Son

Here's some that aren't working for me, but maybe it's just my computer and it'll work for others:

Palpatine Phone Call

Death Star Orientation

Yo Mama Fight

Ok, here's some more from non-official sources:

Empire on Ice

Cantina Scene (really bad quality, unfortunately)

Compilation of several short clips

Awkward Dinner

The detail on the Wampa's car interior is pretty delightful.

Boba Fett is back (with more ewok slashing)!

It seems many of the clips on Adult Swim's channel are crapping out due to some kind of interaction with TBS's proprietary player and YouTube. Anyone else having problems playing them?

That was incredible. But it ends at just the wrong moment, not just the right one! A fine distinction, I know, but still: The right moment is the moment where you pump your fist and say "yes!" The wrong moment is the moment just when you think it's going to get good, and you squish your eyes and say "noooooo!"

I loved that clip for not having Seth Green's voice in it.

"Anyone else having problems playing them?"

Yes, but that may be due to my placement in the geographical region known as CANADA, where apparently I don't get to watch these because of COPYRIGHT reasons (otherwise unspecified). Darn you TED TURNER! Is it because my copyright's not as good as anyone else's in the Western World!!?!

I saw an above comment as Boba Fett ewok slash and was disappointed.

There's a Robot Chicken Star Wars III?! Oh, man...

I don't like normal Robot Chicken, but Robot Chicken Star Wars is genius.

The wampa's car has a landau roof and that made me laugh.

Burhanistan, I'm in darkest Wisconsin, and having universal crap-out.

Wait.

So in the time Luke is returned to the rebel base and escapes the Imperial blockade to get to Dagobah which has to be like 10 hours or something the Wampa has not only cauterized his wounds but resigned himself into into a life as an amputee. What with familial and personal tribulations and whatnot. That sketch reads like Kenny Rogers' "Ruby" for christsakes.

C'mon, give us a little leeway. This would have made more sense on Luke's trip to Endor.

Not to call out myself, but I realize they both would have been missing an arm at that point. The symbolism, it burns.

Seems like lightsabers cauterize wounds as they make them. Otherwise Luke would have bled to death hanging off the bottom of Cloud City.
