"Yoda's Yucks"

Sure, you've got your lightsaber-wielding Yoda in the Star Wars prequels. And you've got your animated Yodas, doing their various whatevers in the cartoon series. But I still hold the original Muppet form of Yoda in high esteem. Especially since, when he first appears in The Empire Strikes Back, ALL Yoda does is clown on Luke.

Young Skywalker hit Dagobah, hoping to discover a Jedi Master. Instead he finds a hobbled, green, swamp-town yokel. And he tests the kid's patience at every turn -- breaks his equipment, ruins his dinner, steals his flashlight and assaults his droid. All the while, knowing exactly who Luke is and why he's there. Now that's truly some gangta-ass old wise man shit, for ya.
