I'm sure this has been brought up before somewhere, but I was watching some old Superfriends show the other day and I noticed the Hall of Doom had a similar look to Darth Vader.





Didn't Superfriends come out before Star Wars? I know they were both mid-late 70's. There was also an episode where Robin used what looked like a light saber to cut open a safe. Hhhhmmmmm…

Ever heard anything of this?

I'll have to check out Family Guy ‘Blue Harvest’ again, too. One of my buddies recently said there was a reference of it in that… =D

It still said “Episode IV, A New Hope” in the opening scroll. They just didn't put it on the posters.

Or the tickets… or the movie listings, or the videos when they came out ;)

Actually, from IMDB:
“Upon its original release, the opening crawl did not include ”Episode IV: A New Hope.“ According to Lucasfilm, this was added upon its re-release in 1978 or as late as 1981. The later print was the first one to be released on video, and all video, laserdisc or DVD releases have featured the subtitles. The theatrical cut DVDs, set to be released in September 2006, will be the first time that the original opening crawl, without subtitle, has been released on home video.”
