7. 'The Star Wars Holiday Special' (1978)

Okay, we'll be honest: This special -- which follows Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca's (Peter Mayhew) trip to visit Chewie's family for Life Day (a.k.a. Christmas in a galaxy far, far away) -- is awful. But it's so awful (and unintentionally funny) that it's actually entertaining. And, as true Star Wars fans know, it's also the first time Boba Fett was introduced, albeit in cartoon form. Sadly, due to horrendous critical reception, the program only aired once in its entirety -- on Nov. 17, 1978 -- and has never officially been released on DVD.
