Gorax and Sanyassan Marauders

Saturday mornings weren't the only place to find original programming starring Ewoks in the mid-Eighties on ABC – they also had two of their own live-action movies for Galaxies to mine from.

Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (originally titled The Ewok Adventure) aired in November 1984 and featured a human family whose starcruiser crashed on Endor, with the parents abducted by a huge carnivorous creature known as the Gorax. Their kids and the Ewoks went on a quest to save them, ending with the Gorax falling to his doom down a chasm. All was well on Endor.

Until Ewoks: The Battle for Endor one year later, that is, when nearly everyone was ruthlessly murdered by Sanyassan Marauders. They were on Endor in Galaxies, too – even their leader, King Terak!
