    Episode 130 - Teen Witch

    Big ups to rapper Serengeti for covering Top That! (Well, the chorus at least) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVNRbWfJ2_M Also I'll have to check but I'm almost positive 1983's Wild Style had a rap battle in the house party scene, BUT Teen Witch surely had the first and most white rap battle on film at this time.
  2. I'm a background artist working in the animation industry and for obvious reasons found the cartoon to be the most fascinating part of the special, both as an artist and a fan of Star Wars. The thing I liked most about it was the style of drawing, it is influenced by - if not directly ripped off of - Jean Giraud's aka Moebius's style. I checked and he had no involvement in this short, but he was highly influential in the comics world at the time. Matt Gourley was correct for saying it reminded him of Heavy Metal magazine, Giraud was a founder. He was also the artist who storyboarded the entire Dune screenplay written by Jodorowsky. This is well documented in the documentary film Jodorowsky's Dune where they mention that Moebius's designs influenced the look of sci-fi in the 70s and 80s. Although he never worked on any Star Wars films, Moebius went on to do character, set, and costume designs for films such as Aliens, Tron, Masters of the Universe, Fifth Element and many more. So, to see a quality Star Wars 2d animated short in the style of Moebius (something rare in animation for some strange reason) AND have little nerd bits like the first appearance of Boba Fett doing unfilmable things like riding a dinosaur really is a treat! Now, here's some art: https://landscapetheory1.wordpress.com/2015/02/22/moebius/
  3. "Did anyone else notice that C-3PO was blinking in the cartoon? This was so weird. " I think that's an animation choice, the character would appear too static and lifeless as a cartoon if it did not blink
