"I'm Jawa! Wanna buy a droid?"

For some reason this commercial is cracking me up. It's the perfect blend of slightly unbright children and that lovely early Star Wars bliss, before we were inundated with tons of back story and zany alien names. When the name Walrusman sounded like a supervillian. And Jawas weren't an alien race, but just Frank Jawa, droid salesmen.

I also linked a nice old Stormtrooper on Dewback commercial. Is it just me or does if look like the Stormtrooper replaced Fred Flintstone at the rock quarry? I'm betting once that 5 pm bird whistle blows, he slides down the dewback's tail and punches out.
