If we accept all the Star Wars films as the same canon, then a lot that happens in the original films has to be reinterpreted in the light of the prequels. As we now know, the rebel Alliance was founded by Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa. What can readily be deduced is that their first recruit, who soon became their top field agent, was R2-D2.
An interesting reinterpretation of Star Wars IV–VI, notwithstanding the fact that George Lucas was making everything up as he went along, especially for episodes I–III but he doesn't care—he's got our money and besides, geeks live for explaining continuity errors in science fiction series (and amusingly enough, nothing that went on in Episodes I–III matched what he wrote about in “Bantha Tracks”—I know this because my friend Hoade used to get this newsletter as a kid).
“It's got kind of a slacker appeal, a no-resistance story line.” Animators and children's TV creators around the world must see Scooby and ask themselves: Why can't my crappy show become iconic?
But it wasn't as if the creators of Scooby-Doo were perfect—far from it and I can prove it with one word (or is it two?):
But despite that, Scooby-Doo did reach iconic status.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)—A school bus driver let Rachel Armstrong's three children board the bus Monday morning, but he warned them that he wouldn't give them a ride home that afternoon, nor could they ever ride his route again.
The problem: Armstrong's 10-year-old twin girls and 8-year-old son speak English. According to their mother, the driver told them the route had been designated for non-English speakers only.
Was there a memo?
I'm horribly confused.
