    I couldn't help but think of Mira and Luke as Sue and Johnny Storm in this cartoon. I guess that'd make Han Reed and Chewie the Thing.


Yup. And now replace Mira with Princess Leia and you have the classic Star Wars characters embodying the Fantastic Four archetype, three males and a female, one of the males younger than the others, one of the males in charge, one of the males a brawler. Now consider Darth Vader in light of Doctor Doom, and we see George Lucas as very likely a fan of what Stan and Jack unleashed unto the world.



Hmm. I've always seen Darth Vader as Dr. Doom but I never thought about the other characters. I think R2-D2 preceded HERBIE, though, so I guess it goes both ways! \:\-\)
