The Ewoks were teddy bear-like creatures who waddled their way into movie viewers’ hearts in 1983 when they assisted Luke Skywalker and company in defeating the Empire in Return of the Jedi.
Two years later the Ewoks arrived in animated form in their own adventures in this ABC series.
Wicket was the group’s scout leader, Widdle was his younger brother, and Weechee was his older brother.
They lived on the distant moon of Endor in thatched houses with their humanoid pals Princess Kneesaa and impish Latara, engaging in adventures in which they met other creatures and, as with any Saturday morning cartoon, learned a lesson in the process.
At the end of February 1986, this series merged with Droids: The Adventures of R2D2 and C3P0 to become The Ewoks and Star Wars Droids Adventure Hour.
In the fall of 1986, that series ended, and The All-New Ewoks debuted with a largely new crew of Ewoks, but it did not draw bigger audiences than the first edition and was gone after a single season.
