Someone ought to make a short film of George Lucas going back in time, showing WB execs how "Star Wars" became such a big hit, thus allowing the cartoon to play; then, because of that altered fact, the movie bombs. (Maybe it could be a short story; I'll have to think about trying it out)

I will say it does make me seriously wonder: would this have altered the course of the film's success in any way one could not imagine. An unanswerable question...
