Star Wars considered as an episode of Dallas

Bonnie sez, "After watching this fan-made Dallas-style intro of Star Wars, I'm beginning to wonder if J.R. and Darth Vader were one in the same."

Star Wars / Dallas opening (Thanks, Bonnie)


  1. Ha ha! This is great. I didn’t remember Dallas had such a funky music (Last time i saw it 20 years ago) and i love it!

  2. Very nice. :-)
    It really makes you appreciate the contribution of John Williams’ Star Wars music!

  3. Seeing the links in the comments to videos of Star Trek Love Boat videos reminded me of a sketch I saw years ago that had Patrick Stewart as the captain of the Pacific Princess in flying through the Star Trek universe. (video)

  4. i swear they did the same thing on “the muppet show”
    but with whats his face – the cheap airline tickets guy –

    but that cant be – can it?

  5. omfg – william shatner — if someone can find the link to the muppet version of william shatner as captain of loveboat – i’ll give them a free ride in my mercedes – and a cookie

  6. Victor @ #4: Oh yeah, Dallas had a great theme song.

    That’s the original theme from the first seasons, the later seasons had a less funky (then: 70’s-sounding) theme.


  7. What’s nice about this is how it so sharply puts into relief, (reveals), the essential cheesy 70’s vibe of Star Wars. Star Wars product has become such a part of culture that its understandably hard to see it clearly for what it is = junky half-baked, yet admittedly enjoyable, trash.

  8. This makes me think it would be kind of cool for a network to actually do this. I would much rather watch an “episode” of Star Wars, than the results show of any number of currnet programs.
