Fun Star Wars Cartoon, 8 December 2001
Author: Aaron Snyder (email@example.com) from Washington, MO
This was a fun cartoon series, with cool stories and good animation. It centered around C3PO and R2D2 and their adventures before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The show deals with gangsters, princes, and a speeder race that was likely the precursor to the Pod Race in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. "Droids" had the Star Wars atmosphere as well as the atmosphere of '80's cartoons. It was canceled after only one season,

A Fun and Funny Star Wars cartoon, 2 August 2002
Author: Jay O'Sullivan from Brockton M.A.
Droids is now one of my favorite cartoons. I am a huge Star Wars fan and I just loved this Cartoon. Droids tells the story of C3PO and R2D2 years before they joined the Rebel Alliance and teamed up with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It seems there lives were just as dangerous. They encounter numorus masters and encounter Space pirates Bounty hunters The Empire and a close Encounter with Boba Fett. This Cartoon is very funny and much better than the Ewoks T.V. seires.

The definition of the word embarrassing., 13 September 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Star Wars was one of the biggest parts of my childhood. I know all the
live action theatrical movies by heart. While not all of them are
amazing masterpieces, they are still landmarks in pop culture, but like
any successful franchise some sort of animated spin-off had to be made.
For Star Wars, several were made, but the one that stands out in my
mind the most prominently is DROIDS.
The story line to Droids is that C-3PO and R2-D2 go from master to master, finding themselves going on many adventures. Already the story line sounds boring, as well as was. The characters are flat and uninteresting as all Hell. Aside from our two main characters, every character was just a blatant rip-off of a characters from something else. Yes I know even the Excellent Star Wars movies took a lot of influence from other films, but they at least made enough tweaks that the characters and scenes were memorable. They weren't even trying with the characters in this show. The comedy fell flat and would leave you cringing and wishing to turn the TV off.
The animation in this show was atrocious, often times the animators would recycle stock footage even if the footage being recycled had a background that didn't match the scene it's supposed to be part of.
All in all, this show's not worth your time.

Where's the video?, 20 February 2010
Author: TLSO from Massatoochetts
Right now there's a DVD out with a few of the stories edited into
movies, but I wanted to see it in its original form. I had one video as
a kid, and the rest of the series I've only seen through low-quality
It's interesting to see the direction the show took immediately after the original movies and before Episodes 1-3 were thought of. The character designs are fun, and even if they're sometimes cliché or annoying, they're bearable overall.
The writing style is campy for sure, but the show's a great piece of nostalgia and I'd gladly shell out the money for a good-quality set of the original episodes.

Droids, 18 December 1999
Author: sean52390 from new york city, United States
Okay,this is good,nothing great though.You can get mushed version of 4
episodes,which I saw,and it was great! This was when C3 and R2 were not in
the hands of Skywalker,and were on weird adventures.There was a pirate
had his own (cheap looking) TIE fighters.A *** star movie.

Well, it IS Star Wars., 16 June 1999
Author: Stephen J Cox from Portsmouth, England
I saw this series years ago (probably on the BBC) when I was a kid and though I remember the animation as very bland and the story's disconnection from the movies as disappointing I still watched it and presumably enjoyed it enough to waste my time doing so. Why? Well I can only presume it was the magic still associated with all things Star Wars even as the craze was becoming Transformers (now that's what I call(ed) a robot cartoon).
