The Late Movies: Ewoks
Remember those little fuzzy bear things that saved the day in the movie Return of the Jedi? An epic generation-long battle between the Rebellion and the Empire culminates in a victory by tiny round teddy bears. Go figure. Ewoks, they were, and they eventually got a couple of spin off movies and even an animated TV series. They also got some parody videos, which I hope you will enjoy.
The Ewok Gospel
Performed by Andrew Zilch with a special appearance by Billy Dee Williams.
Ewok Celebration (Club Mix)
You couldn't set foot on a dance floor in 1983-84 without hearing this one. We played it on the radio a lot as well. Remix by Meco. Bonus: watch the condensed version of the movie while listening to the extended version of the song.
Ewok Celebration (Barbershop Version)
By Crackerjack Junction.
Just Plain Weird
The song is "Ievan Polkka" by the Finnish group Loituma.
Wookies and Ewoks
"The Animal Song" by Savage Garden set to footage of Wookiees and Ewoks.
I just figured out what Ewoks really are.
The Empire Got Defeated By Some Ewoks
A parody of "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer", if that doesn't frighten you too much.
Drunk Ewoks on the Today Show
I'm not altogether certain they were drunk, but they did act up quite a bit during the Halloween show in 2009.
