Growing up, my cousin and I were nearly the same exact age so we hung out together a lot. His younger brother was several years younger than us and that meant we often teamed up to torment him in various ways.
It’s not even mid-October yet here in Colorado and already it’s been colder than it got back in my old home state of Texas for most of the winter. This means that things like gloves and hats that I never needed before are now required.
I have long thought that the Ewoks were the cutest little creatures in the Star Wars universe. I also think that Ewoks might be nothing more than really short Sasquatches who prefer to live in trees and crush walkers with big logs.
Ewoks. They are the bane of the Empire’s existence. These furry little creatures have been known to take on elite Imperial soldiers and win. They will crush you with logs, set traps and catch you – even poke you with a stick.
November 1st was Ewok Appreciation Day. Yeah, it was new to me too. C-3PO must have started it so he could be worshiped. Ewoks first appeared in 1983 in the movie Return of the Jedi. Many fans did not like them since they were obviously there for the kids and for Lucas to make toy money, though they’ve sort of grown on some folks over the years.
The next time you have tea, you can set the tea bag on this Tea-Wok tidy, so you don’t make a mess. It also makes a good spoon rest. This is great if you are working on an Ewok themed kitchen, complete with fire pit and roasting spit.
Of all the characters in the original Star Wars trilogy, the Ewoks were my favorites. At the time, I didn’t realize how much they looked like dogs that walked around on their hind legs. if you need any more proof that the Ewok race is descendant from the mighty and fluffy Shih-tzu dog breed, here it is.
I’m not sure what you call a bobble head that doesn’t bobble, but that is what these LEGO figures are. They were created by a LEGO master using the Force named Jose Carlos Fernandez. He is also known as LEGO-man-at-arms and Wolf-at-Arms, so clearly he can’t make up his mind.
Ewoks. They aren’t quite Jar Jar but…Well, love them or hate them, they know how to deal with Imperials on their forest moon. LEGO is releasing The Ewok Village, a beautifully detailed 1,990 brick model complete with traps, hideouts, and even an elevating throne (for 3PO of course.).
These days, most of us think of the Ewoks as cute and endearing little fellows, but I remember when Return of the Jedi came out, there was an uproar over the addition of these furry creatures to the Star Wars universe.
I think that most of us probably wanted to live in a tree house at some point when we were growing up. I know when I was a kid I wanted to live in a giant redwood like an Ewok so badly that I could barely stand it.
Back before the Star Wars prequels, Ewok hunting was a popular sport. It put Ewoks on the endangered species list. But after the prequels, most prefer Gungan hunting. I think we would all agree with that.
Yum. Gingerbread. But eww Ewoks, the Return of the Jedi equivalent of Jar Jar Binks. Well, maybe they aren’t that bad. Screw it, I would still eat this whole damn village. Maybe by doing so, I can prevent Endor from ever existing.
