This American/Canadian animated series featuring the Ewok characters introduced in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi was aired on ABC from September 7, 1985 to December 13, 1986 for 2 seasons and 26 episodes.

The Ewoks proved so popular that they were featured in two made-for-TV movies The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: Battle for Endor before getting their own Saturday morning cartoon.

The show was focused on a group of young Ewoks led by Wicket, who prevailed through one harrowing adventure after another.

Most of the action of the story takes place in the forest moon of Endor, outer space and aboard an Imperial Star Destroyer.

In 1986 ABC revamped the show into The Ewoks and Star Wars Droids Adventure Hour, and the next year changed things again, producing The All-New Ewoks.

They achieved a big popularity among the younger audience that even a comic was published bi-monthly based on the animated series in 1986 as an imprint of Marvel Comics. It was issued for two years, ending with issue #14. In 1985 a toyline was also produced including action figures, ship models, etc.
