Behind the Scenes FUN
9 January 2003 | by terretmimeSee all my reviews

I remember watching this on the Disney Channel a couple times in the eighties... I distinctly remember seeing Hooter with his mask off. It was a midget! And they showed the actor inside the one robot character. Interviews with George Lucas as well i believe. I'd like to see George Lucas remake Captain EO or perhaps make the prequel! The Making Of was actually longer than the actual film- both are very entertaining. I like HOOTER the most! Note the organ the blue elephant plays... What's with George Lucas? He did the same thing in Return of the Jedi... When I've drunk too much with friends I grab a blue pillow and pretend to play the organ like Hooter/Max Rebo!
