#44: JABBA THE HUTT

jabba.jpg (33375 bytes)

You have to admit, it's good to be JABBA THE HUTT.  You're as fat as can be, can eat whatever you want, everyone does your bidding, Han Solo is afraid of you, you get to listen to the fine music of MAX REBO all day, and when you're lonely, you get to have Carrie Fisher in a metal bikini chained by your side.

JABBA always looked like a distant cousin of THE GRIMACE from McDonalds to me, if you drink a few beers and really think about it a lot.

Though his characterizations in the Star Wars films have been fairly one dimensional, the various Dark Horse Jabba The Hutt comics (search them out on eBay) show him to be the master dealer/manipulator he was meant to be.

The Phantom Menace completely blew, but it was nice to see Jabba make an appearance (below).  Let's hope he's in the subsequent films.
