Is it an animated movie, rather than a television series?

Can you give us some clue? The game is kinda dead now.

Hmmm- okay.
There were a lot of stars in the main cast, so it's not like this character was the only one by himself, but he's one of the main ones for sure.

And, as a further clue, I will clarify my answer to Fernin's last question. Admittedly, it was kind of sneaky, but part of the fun of this game is trying to not give too much away so that it's a good challenge.
But to clarify- this is not strictly an animated movie, but it's not a TV series either. To the best of my knowledge, this character has not been in any TV series (though he may have been at least mentioned.)
That should give you some clues to work with now. Wink

That would explain why I was totally unable to find information on Canadian TV series' in the late '70s, only a tiny handful existed and none seemed right. xD

Yeah- sorry to be misleading, even if unintentionally- but like I said, that's part of the fun of the challenge. Keep searching and reaching out- I've got a feeling you'll find it soon enough. Smile

Now what's left is to figure out what else even existed in the late '70s... If it wasn't a TV series and it wasn't a movie, that leaves something that came directly to home video, and possibly other smaller corner cases, but I'm not sure how big that was at the time.

Was it something like the ABC Saturday Weekend Special, a made for TV special kind of thing?

Yes, you're on the right track now. It was a made-for-TV special.

I suppose the only thing for it is to narrow down the year, too much information to sift through otherwise...

Was this made in either '75 or '76?

No- neither.

Total shot in the dark here, and I hope I'm wrong on this, but...

Was it Han Solo in the brief cartoon segment inside of the Star Wars Holiday Special?

Why would you hope to be wrong? You got it- it's Han Solo in what, as far as I know, is his only animated appearance thus far. Nelvana animated the cartoon sequence in The Star Wars Holiday Special- aired once in 1978 and only partially available in any official format. (The cartoon was included as an Easter Egg on the Star Wars Complete Saga Blu-Ray release.) I have seen the special before and am probably one of the few to have a weird affinity for it. Smile Check out starwarsholidayspecial.com to find out more than you ever wanted to know on this. Well done, Fernin. The Force is strong with this one. Happy Life Day! Smile

I was traumatized by seeing the entire Holiday Special myself so I probably blocked it from memory. I mean, yeesh, several minutes of Wookie speak with no translation or anyone, non-Wookie, reacting to it. Jefferson Starship singing into, what looked like, a glowing dildo and Chewbacca's father watching Wookie-porn among other eye- and ear-searing items.

Nice one Fernin. My mind was headed toward some holiday special like Witches Night Out.

Hehe, I was hoping I was wrong in hopes that you had something better in mind. Nifty choice, though. Smile

May I point out that, since the Stars Wars movies take place in a galaxy far, far away, Han Solo is, technically, not human.
