Sort of...
Just watched Conan O'Brien, a repeat of an episode with Harrison Ford promoting Firewall. Conan was ribbing Ford about the Holiday Special and actually showed a clip. Solo talking to Chewy and the family. It was kinda of cool to see it actually broadcast on TV again, even if only for 30 or so seconds.

I laugh when I read this article From http://www.starwarsholidayspecial.com

Bea Arthur, "Ackmena"
(from an interview with The Portland Mercury, Oct 13 - Oct 19, 2005)
MERCURY: How about your role in The Star Wars Holiday Special [also a television special, aired November 17, 1978, where Bea played a barmaid in an intergalactic tavern]?

Bea: You know something... I didn't know what that was about at all. I was asked to be in it by the composer of that song I sang—"Goodnight, But Not Goodbye." It was a wonderful time, but I had no idea it was even a part of the whole Star Wars thing.

MERCURY: Well, that song was great.

Bea: Well, thanks. It's odd. I've gotten so many letters and requests for autographed photos from that thing. I just remember singing to bunch of people with funny heads.
