I've heard that there were a couple characters on Jabba the Hutt's sail barge in Return of the Jedi that had names that were inspired by The Day The Earth Stood Still. What were their names, what was the connection, and why?

    Not familiar, but the names would be any of these: Gort, Klatu, Barata, or Nicto. – DampeS8N Jan 14 '11 at 20:33

You probably heard about Jabba's Skiff Guards; Klaatu, Barada and Nikto.

This is a clear reference to the phrase used in The Day the Earth Stood Still; "Klaatu_barada_nikto"

Toy box branded "Star Wars: The Power of the Force" with a picture of Darth Vader. It is labelled "Jabba's Skiff Guards: Klaatu, Barada, Nikto".
