I remember some time long ago when I was watching ROTJ with a girlfriend and when she saw Salacious Crumb (just like in the gif that Duracell posted), she asked me, “Is that thing some kind of goiter with a head? They look attached.” I just smiled and said, “Nope, it’s worse than that.” I am relieved it sounds like we may be seeing Crumb (and his laughing) less often 😉
Glad to also hear that about the gonk droid; indeed the torture had an uncomfortably childish vibe about it. I had thought it could’ve been improved if just the cartoonish yells were replaced with better, more-robotic sounds, and the mechanisms corrected to actually touch his feet, but I am also all for Ady removing it… would something else have to be inserted in it’s place, though?
And just another random but related story: As a youngster, I used to think that droid was shooting air out from the bottom of its feet, as a defense mechanism, which blew away and prevented the hot plate from touching him 😃
