"The problem with this is that unlike all other TV series which generally include proper credits for each episode, commentaries, special features, original music & sounds... in other words, the real TV series, this offers NOTHING. This is a cheap way to test the waters to see if anyone would drop the cash on the whole set. Lucasfilm says "this is what people have been waiting for." No, no it isn't. Season one of the Ewoks ran with the droids in a program called "The Ewoks & Droids Adventure Hour" & had a wonderful theme song by blues artist Taj Mahal. The stories were wonderful & in a way, built on one another. Season two ran alone & was drawn a bit differently & focused mainly on Wicket, Teebo, Kneesaa, & Latara. It was geared mostly for the very young, except for a couple of episodes ("The Night of the Stranger" & "Battle For The Sunstar"). Season two also was a bit more varied with several of the episodes split into two stories, offering more tales from the Endor woods.
At any rate, this IS NOT what people have been waiting for at all. It's the same as it was on VHS, meaning that they only offer a few episodes, different music, & a whole lot of nothing else. Wait for the release of the rest of the series (but not too long, because they never will). If you want to blow your dough on this, go ahead. I certainly wouldn't."

"Not because of a hate for Ewoks. I love the Ewoks & the droids. This IS NOT the cartoon that was on Saturday mornings in the 1980's. This is a few of the episodes badly put together to make a film that has four or five plots. The cartoon that used to be on had two seasons, one of them running with the droids. This is the same garbage that was pushed on VHS. Do not waste your money. What's wrong with Lucasfilm?"
Ewoks cartoon on DVD, sort of...

"Don't take my rating wrong, I don't hate this cartoon, what I hate is the way Lucasfilm has handled the property. Basically what this release is is 8 episodes from the first season of the show cobbled together to form two very unbalanced animated films. What we do get is basically 8 episodes of the show with new adult Wicket voice-overs. What we don't get is the opening theme song, original end credits, and I have a feeling original music (though I guess I'll never know since this will probably be the only release in this format.) At least the "chapters" are labeled with the original episode titles. I know this sounds nit-picky and in the vein of the "complainers" of the ill done reissues of the Original Star Wars trilogy on DVD, but come on. What is the purpose of releasing an old saturday morning cartoon, almost certainly because the fans demanded it for nostalgia purposes, and then heavily editing it so that it has almost no feel of how it originally aired?"
DVD is a major disappointment

"In 2004, it was announced that, in addition to a DVD release of the original Star Wars films, we would be getting the Droids and Ewoks animated series on DVD. At that year's comic-con, when Steve Sansweet made the announcment, he simply said that both series would be released. Now, many of us fans automatically assumed that the COMPLETE series would be released. I have always enjoyed both series, so I was very much looking forward to season sets containing all 35 episodes of Ewoks, and all 15 episodes of Droids.

HOWEVER, it was announced, not long before their DVD release, that instead of the complete series, would would simply be getting a rehash of the 1996/1997 VHS releases, where 8 episodes from each series were edited together as two feature length films per series. Now, I have to admit, this format works OK. But that's not what most fans want. What I want to know is, who exactly made the decision to release these edited versions instead of what the fans REALLY want?

Hopefully, for the big 2007 ANH 30th anniversary, Lucasfilm will get their act together, and bring out a COMPLETE release of these two classic series on DVD (or Blu-Ray, etc.)."
