It is possible they weren't ewoks, but as a kid I identified them as being the same as ewoks..

Basic plot:

A family (husband, wife, couple of kids) crash land their spaceship on a planet. They meet friendly ewoks, but also another race of creatures which are hostile. The hostile creatures steal the power source to their spaceship, preventing them from leaving.

Most episodes were based around their unsuccessful attempts to recover their power source from the hostile creatures.

It was live action.

    I have just googled for Ewoks TV show. You owe me about 1/2 billion permanently damaged brain cells and the cost of 3 years of intensive psychiatric therapy. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 3 '12 at 17:49

    @TangoOversway - it wasn't live action, so it doesn't fit – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 3 '12 at 17:59
  • As you're talking about a series, not a one-off thing, I assume you're not talking about The Star Wars Holiday Special? – Andrew Grimm Jan 4 '12 at 1:57
  • Land of the Lost. Pakuni, not Ewoks. – user4070 Jan 4 '12 at 2:37

There are 2 made-for-TV movies about Ewoks :

    I must have seen both movies as a kid and thought they were a series (they both involve the same characters). – Jack B Nimble Jan 3 '12 at 18:06

    Are these considered canon? – Xantec Jan 3 '12 at 18:36

    Do these fit the "crash land their spaceship on a planet. They meet friendly ewoks, but also another race of creatures which are hostile. The hostile creatures steal the power source to their spaceship, preventing them from leaving."? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 3 '12 at 21:51

    @Xantec - for a given value of 'canon' - Star Wars is notorious for applying levels to its canonicity. I think these movies fall somewhere above fanon and below the standard expanded universe canon (meaning officially sanctioned books and movies can override) – HorusKol Jan 3 '12 at 22:16

    These films are no longer considered canon – Valorum Nov 12 '16 at 20:04
