Cartoon Production Information:
The series revolved around a young group of Ewoks let by Wicket, the very same Ewok who discovered Princess Leia in the film. This time, however, the audience could understand Wicket and his brothers Widdle and Weechee, all of whom were regressed to teenagers. The three siblings, along with friends Princess Kneesaa and Latara, still lived on their forest moon home, engaging in one dangerous adventure after another.
In it's first season, Ewoks was a stand-alone series. The adventures ran the full half-hour of the show. For it's second season, Ewoks would be combined with Droids into a new, hour long show called, "Ewoks and Star Wars Droids Adventure Hour" (along with a name change to The Adventures of the Ewoks). In the second season, some half-hour segments were split into two eleven-minute stories. Later that year, ABC dropped the Droids and the show resurfaced as The All-New Ewoks. The retooled show lasted only one more season, after which rabid Star Wars fans had to content themselves with comic books, role playing games, and novels until the next feature installment in 1999.
