In an effort to draw in younger “StarW ars” fans, ABC launched the “Ewoks and Droids Adveture Hour” in 1986 as part of its Saturday morning cartoon block.
Yes, that was a time when Saturday morning programming was fun.
The show included episodes of “Star Wars: Ewoks” and “Star Wars; Droids.”
“Droids” told the story of R2-D2 and C-3PO before thy joined up with Luke Skywalker. Anthony Daniels was the voice of C-3PO. “Ewoks” looked at the life of Wicket W. Warroick before the Battle for Endor.
