Episode 55: Teebo

Swinging out of the jungle, we return again for Star WTF season 2. This week, we look at Wicket’s best friend and terrifying monster, Teebo the Ewok. You may remember him as the scary Ewok or maybe as the one that blew the sacred horn of the soul trees. We talk about Teebo’s connection with the force, his skinned animal hat, his creepy scary face, and just how awful the Ewoks cartoon is. Download Episode 55 - Teebo Teebo was an Ewok that was present during the Battle of Endor. One of Chief Chirpa's best hunters alongside Asha Fahn, they supported Chirpa's decision to help the Rebels take out the Imperial shield generator, vetoing Logray's choice to stay out of it. That night, he would write a message to be sent out to neighboring Ewok tribes to call them all to action against the Empire, that in the original Ewokese even Logray found beautiful.

Episode 54: Moroff

In 2015 Star Wars came back in full force with The Force Awakens. Then came Rogue One, and The Last Jedi. During all of this time, StarWTF!? was completely silent. We had 54 episodes in a row and then as soon as Star Wars was back, we just zipped our lips and stopped the presses. You would think it would be the other way around, right? Well, it's time to announce season two of StarWTF!? Starting with today's episode, Moroff, and then continuing with such legends as Bidlo Kwerve and RX-24, we plan to bring out 10 episodes with no interruption. (Unless a new Star Wars film comes out and breaks us again... We're looking at you Solo!). And now, onto Moroff, the big white Gigoran a/k/a a snow Wookiee meets Wampa meets Plo Koon meets every cool character that we barely get to see. He's very much unused in Rogue One, but a killer design and worth the discussion. We answer the question who would win in a fight, a Gigoran or a Wookiee? Knowing that Gigoran are gentle giants, and Wookiee's ca...

Episode 53: Lumpy (The 2015 StarWTF!? Holiday Special)

While The rest of the country celebrates the new Star Wars film, we here at StarWTF!? know that's there's something more important about this time of year. That's right, it's time to cuddle up by the fire and remember that the Star Wars Holiday Special exists. And boy, do we have a big one this year. He's tiny, he's hairy, he's... Lumpy? Yes, the true stand out star of the Star Wars holiday special makes his premiere on our show! We discuss everything from his humble origins to his insane future! Is Lumpy Chewbacca's son? What is his real name exactly? Why is he so darned terrifying? Find out all this and more as we dig into the lumpy carpet that is Lumpy. It should be noted that before you begin this episode, that this was recorded before we saw The Force Awakens. So, any predictions and guesses that we say are likely false. Please feel free to make fun of us if we manage to say some guess that turned out hilariously wrong. Download Episode 53 - Lumpy Lumpawaroo, also known as Waro...

Episode 52: PZ-4CO (and The Force Awakens)

We decided to do a very speculative episode on a Force Awakens character that we really know nothing about. Based off of an action figure, we chose PZ-4CO, a Resistance Base Control Room Droid, who is as blue as it gets and has a very cool, yet kind of funky-looking action figure. The first half of this episode consists of our pre-The Force Awakens speculation and the second is our post-The Force Awakens realizations (and a SPOILER HEAVY brief discussion of the film). So if you've seen the film, listen away! If you haven't, we tell you when to stop (around 16 minutes and 30 seconds). So what's up with PZ-4CO? Will this droid be important? Force sensitive? Save the world? Download Episode 52 - PZ-43O

Episode 51: Battle Droid

Yet again we peer into the deep depths of stupidity that is the Phantom Menace and bring out one of the first things we see on screen. It's the Battle Droid! Those ineffectual robots that we see get taken down by the thousands through out the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars TV show. Listen as we discuss the in and outs of these robot failures and talk about all the dumb things involved in their creation behind the scenes. What does the head of a battle droid look like? How many kinds of them are there? Why where they ineffectual enemies? Is is Gungan or Gunga? Find out as we slash our way through the cannon fodder robots! Download Episode 51 - Battle Droid During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems used a variety of battle droids in their droid army, including B1 battle droids, B2 super battle droids, and Droidekas. The battle droids were often led in military campaigns by the Kaleesh cyborg General Grievous. Although battle droids were outlawed by the Galactic Emp...

Episode 50: Midichlorians

No one said we could do it, but we finally did it! We finally got around to talking about Midicholrians! And it also happens to be our Fiftieth episode! For our first big milestone in podcasting, we sit down and look at one of the most controversial things in the Star Wars history. If you managed to block this microscopic horror from your memory, then allow us to remind you! The tiny germs in your cells are what make the force possible! We also managed to bring back Alex from his vacation in a galaxy far far away to discuss his findings. What exactly are midicholrians? How many is too many? Why was this a terrible idea? Find out all of this and more as we pull out our microscopes and do some blood tests live on the air! Download Episode 50 - Midichlorians Midi-chlorians were intelligent microscopic life forms that lived symbiotically inside the cells of all living things. When present in sufficient numbers, they could allow their host to detect the pervasive energy field known as th...

Episode 49: Qabbrat

Ah! It's good to be out of a prequel or a expanded universe character and back on to the classics! Today, we talk about the Qabbrat! The good old classic Qabbrat! What? Don't know what that is? Well, you certainly remember it quite well! It's Darth Vader's Meditation chamber from The Empire Strikes Back! We look in depth to this device, discussing it's innards and speculate what else it does? Does that helmet arm do anything else? Can it transported places? Does he have more? Why is it called a Qabbrat? Found out as our robo arms apply our breathing masks and talk about this weird pod one useless fact at a time. Download Episode 49 - Qabbrat Darth Vader's meditation chamber, or Qabbrat[1] was a life support pod that allowed the Sith Lord to survive for extended periods without the helmet and mask of his suit. The injuries Vader sustained during the duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar normally made this impossible.

Episode 48: Gragra

We apologize for once again bringing up the Phantom Menace yet again, but we’ve managed to dig something quite interesting out of the bowels of it’s infinite oddities. It’s Gragra, the Mos Espa gorgmonger who yells at Jar Jar to stop eating her weird lizard things on strings. While seemingly an obscure character with no back story, Gragra manages to have one of the most bizarre back stories we’ve seen so far. What exactly is Gragra? What’s a Gorgmonger and what exactly is a gorg? What’s Gragra’s home life like? How many gorgs does it take to buy a starship? Find out all of this and more as we discuss this Swokes Swokes one useless fact at a time. Download Episode 48 - Gragra Gragra was a Swokes Swokes gorgmonger that worked in the marketplace of Mos Espa. Gragra grew her food in a sewer zone underneath Mos Espa.

Episode 47: Jaxxon

He’s green, he’s furry, and he’s got a whole lot of attitude! He’s Jaxxon! If you don’t quite remember that name then you may remember him as the Green Anthropomorphic bunny wearing a spacesuit that you read about once in a list of the worst Star Wars expanded universe characters. We take a look at this rather obscure character from a 1977 Star Wars comic and discuss what the character’s done and where he’s gone since his debut. Where did Jaxxon come from? How did he come to work with Han Solo? How sweet looking was his spaceship? Does he like carrots? Find out all of this and more as we rip apart this green Lepus Carnivorus one useless fact at a time. Download Episode 47 - Jaxxon Jaxxon was a quick-witted Lepi smuggler from Coachelle Prime. The most rambunctious of his family's thirteen children, he left his homeworld at an early age, after stealing an unprotected freighter. He made his way to Nar Shaddaa, where he began to perform odd jobs, quickly becoming familiar with th...

Episode 46: B'omarr Monks

Wow. B'omarr Monks really surprised me. There is so much more to them than those creepy spider droids with jarred brains. The spider droid ISN'T REALLY EVEN the B'omarr Monk! This episode was a lesson learned in weird Star Wars information. Download Episode 46 - B'omarr Monks' The B'omarr are the monks who built the massive monastery fortressJabba the Huttoccupies as his palace. They are spider-droids that carry around a nutrient-globe containing a living, sentient brain. These brains are all that remain of the enlightened monks.
