A common trope in the Lego Star Wars shorts is to kill off Jar Jar Binks. How many times does this happen though?

How many times is Jar Jar Binks killed/destroyed in Lego Star Wars?

To avoid making this too broad, I'm only looking at the 22 minute TV shorts. (Currently consisting of "Padawan Menace", "Empire Strikes Out", "Yoda Chronicles", and "Droid Tales").

    Whatever the numerical answer turns out to be, the true answer is "not enough" – Valorum Feb 5 '16 at 7:59

    @Richard I'd bet a sizable sum of Republic credits that "not enough" was everbody's first reaction! – Jane S Feb 5 '16 at 10:30

    @JaneS Well... I don't know. For me it's like dog peeing on a hydrant. Nothing to be done about it - it's dog's nature. Ignore it. Which means for me, personally, that I blank out on all his appearances. ;) Selective hearing and selective vision superpowers, picked up quickly after I got married ;) – AcePL Feb 5 '16 at 10:41

    @JaneS Not everybody. Some of us actually quite like Jar Jar, believe it or not. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Feb 5 '16 at 11:05

    @JanusBahsJacquet I'm with you on the Ewoks, but Chewbacca? :O – Jane S Feb 5 '16 at 11:28

Surprisingly few times. Just thrice, in fact.

Once in The Padawan Menace, and twice in the first episode of the Droid Tales.


The Padawan Menace: 1

    Killing Jar Jar seems pretty rare, but they do play with the trope of "Jar Jar being written out of the shows after a surprisingly brief cameo" (often just a few seconds) rather more often. – Valorum Feb 5 '16 at 19:47
  • Has this changed at all in the past year? – ibid Apr 21 '17 at 2:03
