Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C3P0

Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C3P0 Episode Guide Logo


Hoping to build on the success of the immensely popular Star Wars trilogy, ABC decided to fill the void until the next film with cartoons based on the Star Wars characters. The two toon adaptaions were Ewoks, starring the furry little fellas from Return of the Jedi, and Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3P0.

As the title suggests, Droids starred the metallic duo of the films, prim C-3P0 and sassy R2-D2. Most episodes saw the pair getting stuck in an awful "life" threatening situation, upon which Threepio would admonish Artoo (since it was always, "all [his] fault"), and eventually the droids would find a way to save themselves and move on to their next adventure.

Some might wonder why the entire Star Wars cast wasn't brought to the small screen in animated form, and if you are one of those people, here's your one-word answer: "overexposure." Star Wars creator George Lucas was smart enough to hold back on telling the audience too much about the other characters, enabling him more freedom in future movies. Besides, most kids got enough of Luke, Han, and Darth Vader when playing with their wildly popular action figures.

Unfortunately, Droids lacked the staying power of Lucas' film creations. The show lasted only one original season- the second season was all reruns- forcing the mechanical marvels into retirement until the next Star Wars film installment thirteen years later.
