JAR JAR RACERS
Animated Series based on characters from Star Wars: Episode I
Fox Kids Network, Fall Schedule 1999
Apparently a half hour show about Jar Jar Binks as a pod racer. He takes Anakin's place as a racer for Watto, as thanks for Anakin's saving Naboo and the Gungans. He races on a different planet every episode and gets into adventures along the way.
Each show is bookended by live action sequences with the "real" Jar Jar introducing and concluding the story.
The premiere episode features a guest spot by Jake Lloyd as Anakin. Word is the shooting for this sequence looked "a bit silly".

I suppose this idea makes sense from a financial standpoint. It seems the only people that like Jar-Jar are kids, so it would be logical to make a cartoon. But still.....Ugh!!!!

Jar Jar is great. A cartoon would be the best thing for Jar Jar. He is a cartoon. I knew all the "hip" people at AICN would hate him so I'd like to see them be pissed and have Lucasfilm make the cartoon. Jar Jar is for kids and so are cartoons. Bring the cartoon
June 5, 1999, 8:56 p.m. CST
I always thought that these losers that fester in there own glee of being the first to post something were losers. Now I am one. Oh well... Getting to the point at hand. A Jar Jar cartoon? Why not? I love the silly bastard. I can't stand these morons that claim he is annoying. He is a fictional amphibian for chrisakes. HE'S CG GODDAMMIT!!! Get over yourselves... Jar Jar rules! Besides I happen to know that good old Binks is really your prized bounty hunter, my man Fett. Jar Jar Binks is Bo Ba Fett... it's obvious look ay the name. Look at his attachment to Vader. He's just trying to protect Ani. The voice is scrambled just like Boush You'll see this in episode 2...

Regaardless of whether or not one likes Jar Jar, the whole premise of this show is flawed. How the hell is Jar Jar Binks, the clumsiest bastard ever supposed to be able to compete in pod-racing? However, Lucas has said all along Jar Jar is a kid's character and he is quite popular among the youngsters. So, it will probably be a huge sucess.

Glen, is this for REAL? Or, could this be complete bull? (What is your opinion, Glen?) I mean, the whole idea sounds like something concocted by the anti-Jar Jar faction as a (bad) joke. If it is legit, one has to wonder what to make of what the series would be like: Would Watto have become a somewhat kinder, gentler person (along the lines of DS9's Quark) after losing everything in the pod race in TPM? And what of Anakin's mom? She probably wouldn't appear (being a slave and all), so perhaps it could be assumed that Watto had to sell her off to another owner. Would this animated series be kind of like a Star Wars version of Speed Racer? And would this mean we might not get to see Jar Jar in Episode II? :^)
June 6, 1999, 1:15 a.m. CST
Well, I can only think of one good thing about a Jar Jar Cartoon... Closed-captioning to finally figuring out what the hell he's saying! PS... Has anyone ever seen the sketch on The State (CBS special, I think) of "What am I Saying?" I swear to god, this game show parody's host sounded just like Jar Jar. ("Bochit!! You sa I chee!? Das Bochit!!)

Yeah right!! Live action segments.. This is the biggest bullshit "news" I've ever heard. Fall '99 supposed release date gives it away. No way in hell they could make a cartoon that fast. It would've been in pre-pro and we would've heard about months ago.

I must say, if they got a good animation company to the show(Japanese Batmans?), I would wake up early on Saturdays to watch. Just think of the outlet George & ILM would have for testing new designs for droids, characters, and storylines.

This is garbage. I don't know who made it, but everything about the scoop proves itself false. 1: Like somebody already stated, if this cartoon was real, we would have heard about its preproduction. They can't make Fall '99 by starting now. 2: The storyline is ridiculous. And 3: JAR JAR IS A GUNGAN! HE LIVES ON NABOO! AND HE WAS AFRAID OF THE PODRACES! "DISSEN GONNA BE ICKY", or whatever he said. This cartoon ain't happening.
June 6, 1999, 8:05 a.m. CST
far fetched idea? maybe. workable? certainly. it might be a good way to keep jar jar fans happy with a more concentrated dose of the character and also provide a useful exit from any more star wars theatrical releases. oh, and they could make a deal with cartoon network and have dick dastardly and mutley show up in these wacky races, too! ...and maybe tom slick and baron otto mattic, too! ("there's no such word as 'mesa' in racing, marigold!")
June 6, 1999, 8:47 a.m. CST
Wasn't this already a show with a car called the Mach 5? Maybe it's a remake of that Hanna-Barbera masterpiece "Wacky Racers" and they'll have to recast Dick Dastardly and Penelope Pitstop. (http://www.dfcom.freeserve.co.uk/hbw/wacky/) Tphthfffft...

No seriously...hey wait, come back! Think about it, Jar Jar, clumsiest and most annoying character (computer generated or no) in the history of not only sci-fi, but mankind itself in control of a Pod. Fans could finally get a chance to see what we've all been hoping for since the underwater jamaican jerkoff said his first words and horrified millions of moviegoers the world over, we could get to see Jar Jar die in an horrific and painful way care of a speeding pod and a nearby rock wall. Hideously mutilated Jar Jar action figures in a massive variety of 'action death poses' (tm.) would sell by the shipload and all would be well with the world once again as we all hoped that Lucas would get his act together and gives us all a truly great episode 2 free of comedic sidekick characters and with a focus on plot and character. If Jar Jar were to die week after week ala Kenny on south park then this cartoon would be the cartoon hit of the new millennium (yeah, yeah, the new millennium isn't really until 2001, but the masses have spoken and the big parties are this year so get over it fact freaks)...However that said without any hope of protracted Jar Jar death sequences then this cartoon if it were to go ahead would truly mark the end of all things...and in a world full of Jar Jars thats not so much of a bad think, now is it?

Face it folks, whatever this Star Wars thing has become, it's found it's niche. Saturday Morning TV is the perfect trash bin for all this bantha doo doo. Henceforward, anything Star Wars related should go on between 8am and 10am while I'm sleeping off Friday night. Long as I've got my videotape of the original non-special edition "Star Wars", I don't care. The only people I feel bad for are the people who created Teletubbies. They're going to have some stiff competition now that Dennis the... I mean, PHANTOM Menace is in town.
June 6, 1999, 11:48 p.m. CST
Money. That's what this is all about. Money. It's that simple. The Bible says that the Love of Money is the root of all evil. The fact that the evil Jar Jar Binks is involved in this proves the corruption behind it. But another slightly more serious issue is at hand here (and believe me, not much more serious - I try to take Jar Jar with a grain of salt.)....How well will this cartoon go? Just look at The Ewoks cartoon they did years ago! That was great for a little while then died out rather quickly. The "Droids" cartoon did a little better but not by much. Having the real Jar Jar introduce every episode reminds me of the "Alf" animated series a couple of years ago set on Melmac. While it sounds like a great idea, remember this is Jar Jar Binks we're talking about. He's about as popular and annoying as the Spice Girls amongst the kiddies and will become a craze that will come and go as quickly as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....

The mention of the Droids/ewoks hour made me think of something: What if it's actually TWO cartoon segments in a hour show tied in with live-action footage? One starring Binks and the other with Pod racers. Info has gotten garbled before, y'know...
June 7, 1999, 7:23 a.m. CST
While I actually enjoyed Jar Jar for what he was, and didn't expect anywhere near as much of ST1 as a lot of people, I have to say that a Jar Jar toon would makes sense if the kids want him, and George feels the need to make a couple mil more.. I remember watching the Droids and Ewok shows after Jedi came out.. and as a 5ht grader, I enjoyed them both. Droids more so.. it had a funky look, and I was psyched that it had a score by Stewart Copeland of the Police. It wasn't too cheesy, and had some good episodes. Ewoks, eh, it didn't last for me. But, since like the comics and novelizations, they didn't really count in the overall sense of things. So, you don't have to watch. Kind of like Voyager.. supposedly in the Star Trek Universe, yet completely wrong historically, written for 12 year olds., ignore it and it isn't there to distract you from the real ST. ( hey, that was a tangent at the end, but if it helps anyone console themselves to the exsitence of a Star Trek existing only because of one woman's breast, I think it was worth it.)
June 7, 1999, 8:06 a.m. CST
well..i was talking to a friend just yesterday about how jar jar should have his own animated cartoon. see..i don't have that much of a problem with jar jar in general..and kids love him..so..let the kids have him..and keep him away from episodes 2 and 3...if this is true..there is great potential there..and i am not sure why everyone is annoyed by this...it's for kids...they'll like it..we don't have to watch it
June 7, 1999, 8:29 a.m. CST
So you're trying to tell me that they'd take the worst element from a mediocre movie and turn it in to a cartoon. What a load of... wait, I forgot, this is Hollywood.
June 7, 1999, 10:40 a.m. CST
This report is nothing but the product of an overactive fanboy imagination. Don't believe a word of it.
June 7, 1999, 12:33 p.m. CST
Anyone who has seen this movie at all will note that even a lot of kids hated Jar Jar Stinks and didn't understand what the hell he was saying. (For further points about Star Wars, use AICN's search engine and look up Harry's review and John Hallenbeck's. Read the talk backs, too. Great points were made!) BTW, did anyone see Regis and Kathie Lee earlier this week, where they interviewed some kids that had seen TPM? Anyway, even they and Regis and Kathie Lee didn't like the character. (I won't even digress here as to what a dissappointment I thought this film was. See my talk backs under the aformentioned topics.) This is the abomination of desolation that is prophecied about several times throughout the Bible. ;-O Now I REALLY understand! The end of Western Civilization (not to mention dumbing down America's kids even more, if that were possible) is upon us! Forget Y2K, this is even worse!!!! ;-) (Tongue firmly in cheek with all of this. I do respect the Bible A LOT MORE than reducing it to this. It's just a joke. You get my point...)
June 7, 1999, 11:25 p.m. CST
Star Wars is a movie series made for little kids that adults, who can't grow up and accept the fact that they're not supposed to own toys or play video games or get excited about men with lazer-swords, take far too seriously! Jar-Jar is hardly the first sorry comic relief in Star Wars. Chewie swings on a vine and does a tarzan hell. Oh, that's hilarious. R-2 shoots and Ewok in the butt with electricity. Stop, my sides hurt. An R-C car gets scared of Chewie in the death star. Oh, that's too much for me. These things were funny to us then because we were 5, and are funny now because we remember them through children's eyes. Go back and watch you favorite cartoon, that you remember being cool. I recently found a video store that rented Voltron, one of my all time childhood faves. It... well, it licked ass. But I still have fond memories of it, crappy jokes and all. Our kids will some day be 20-something nerds who reminisce about all the funny stuff Jar-Jar did. All the complaining in the world won't stop that. So just let it go, and don't watch if you don't want to (we won't force you). By the way, anyone who's got Darth Maul's action figure sitting on a shelf mint in package should remember that some kid could be using that to be living in the Star Wars universe in their heads, just as we did all those years ago. Anyone recall that one figure their parent could nnever find for them, despite how much it meant to you?

Sounds to me like Wacky Racers in Space (without Dick Dastardley & Mutley). Probably a great idea and kids will love it. I know if i were 7 again my favorite parts of EP1 wouldn't be the political struggle of the federation or the foreshadowing of evil to come, it would be that stupid predictable pod race and Jar Jar. Now that i'm almost 30 those were the parts of the movie i hated. but i am not the taget audience for saturday morning cartoons.

Look, if Jar Jar's podracing his gungan ass all up and down the galaxy, then he won't be able to ruin Episodes II & III!!! Kids are happy, Adults are happy, Studio Execs are happy and Lucas is happy! Everybody wins! That, and the quality of cartoons has gotten so much better as I've grown up, it's incredible. We've got Batman, Freakazoid & all the rest of Spielberg's animations, the varios Squigglevision shows, The Tick, we've come a long way from "Wacky Racers"(Funny as that show was) However, we still havent surpassed Rocky & Bullwinkle & George of the Jungle.
June 9, 1999, 6:21 a.m. CST
Isn't this the one of the signs of the end of the world? First Madonna has a child, then Michael jackson has a child, then the Cubs win the World Series, Then Jar Jar comes along. Does that make him the antiChrist? I don't know, an awful lot of people like him, even thou he is so EVIL, EVIL, EVIL. Maybe He is the "Phantom" menance. I just have one thing to say. If this is the quality of "entertainment" that George is going to give us, don't bother. Every new story about George Redoing the triligy AGAIN (yes there is going to be ANOTHER SE of the original triligy), or deciding to ruin the next two movies by including Jar Jar, just twists the knife a little more. George, what are you, stoned, stupid, or just sadistic? No more Jar Jar, please, I'm full.

I remember being 9 when Jedi came out and watching that terrible Ewok cartoon. I was a KID and still hated it. I think this will be equally stupid. Don't waste time with this, instead Lucas should focus his energy on how to kill Jar Jar off in the first 3 minutes of Episode II.
June 9, 1999, 9:15 p.m. CST
Howdy! I think the subject line says it all. This is yet another Lucasfilm rush to cash in on the success of a film. Not only was Jar Jar geared WAY too much toward kids (and these ARE kids movies, folks--but not for 3 year olds!), but to continue the use of this character will perpetuate the ridiculous nature of this character--and therefore alienate all of the die-hard fans. But maybe this is the goal; maybe Lucas wants 3 year olds to love these films and f**k everyone else. The only reason I'm centering on 3 year old kids is that my nephew (of that age) is the only person that I've run into who's liked Jar Jar.... Take care all! harp

YOU PEOPLE ARE SO GODDAMN PATHETIC!!! I FART IN YOUR GENRAL DIRECTION... WHY DON'T YOU TALKBACKERS RELAX AND REALIZE HOW LAME YOU ARE BECOMING? YOU ARE DEVOTING YOUR TIME TO TEAR APPART A FICTIONAL CG CHARACTER. DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT GENERAL JAR JAR BINKS IS NOT REAL? DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT YOU ARE DOING THE SAME SHIT THAT THE CRITICS DID DURING JEDI? DO YOU NOT REALIZE THAT YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR OUTLANDISH REASONS TO FUEL YOU EVERLASTING HATE FOR A GUNGAN? GET OVER YOURSELVES... THIS IS NOT A SURE DONE DEAL THIS HEAR 'TOON. EVEN IF IT IS TRUE WHY GET YOUR PANTIES IN A HIFFY? IS ANYONE FORCING YOU TO WATCH THE JAR JAR TOON? IT ISN'T EVEN OUT YET... I REALIZE THAT YOU 30 YEAROLD POOFS LIVING WITH MOM AND DAD ARE PISSED THAT THEIR TREASURED FILM HASN'T LIVED UP TO YOUR SORRY-ASS WET DREAMT FANTASIES. NO ONE ASKED YOU TO WRITE EPISODE ONE. INSTEAD OF BITCHING AND MOANING OVER YOUR UNORGASMIC EXPERIENCE WITH THE FORCE, MOVE OUT OF THE ATTIC AND/OR BASEMENT OF YOUR FOLKS' DWELLING AND WRITE YOUR OWN FUCKING MOVIE. WHO KNOWS, MAYBE THIS GENERATION OF FILM BRATS WILL GENERATE THE NEW WAVE OF SCI-FANTASY... NO... WHAT AM I THINKING? THEY ARE FAR TOO BUSY DISECTING AND OVERANALYZING GOOD FILMS THAN TO ACTUALLY MAKE ONE ON THERE OWN. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU COME UP WITH YOU SAD SACKS OF SHIT! >:

After sitting through the Jar Jar scenes in the recent Star wars movie I must ask you why would anyone want to see more of him? In any movie ever made there has never been a more anoying character. The people who decided that "hey lets make a Jar Jar cartoon" need to be stopped.

My guess about the "Clone Wars" which we know are coming up: the evil Darth Sidious, having learned of the events on Naboo, annihilates most of the Forces of Good by producing a million clones of Jar Jar Binks...
good call rand.
June 14, 1999, 1:26 p.m. CST
An amphibian living and racing on a desert planet. This ranks right up with "slaves" eating fresh fruit on a desert planet. I've actually read this cartoon report on a number of different sites. Doesn't make it more valid, necessarily, but it's so awful it just might be true. Hopefully kids'll get convulsions and seizures watching it. I know I would.

I personally laughed at alot of Jar Jar's gags. I mean he stepped in shit! That's funny on so many levels! And the bit with the tongue and the fruit on the table; that was FUNNY. But my only problem was with the overuse of his character, the force feeding of his catch phrase "how wude" and the blatant ripp off of WayneWorld's "ex-squeeze-me". But, we must blame George for these sins, not the clumsy Gungan. I really hope that George allows someone else to write the dialogue and direct his human actors; it's obvious he's lost interest in those aspects of film making.
June 18, 1999, 6:10 a.m. CST
Need I say more. The cartoon will be for the under 10's I would wager. Not something to get too heated about. Chill Winston!
