    1) I was at home sleeping when The Phantom Menace had its midnight opening. I’ve only watched bits and pieces of the original trilogy so when I saw Jar-Jar I just thought he looked like all the other aliens in the movie. My feelings were pretty neutral about him.

    2) I would travel to the launch of the first Moon Landing spaceship.

    3) Snuffleupagus would win because he has range with his nose.

      1. Saw the movie opening day and disappointed. Jar Jar just brought the movie down some more.
      2. Travel back to the final game and see the NY Mets win the world series in 1986.
      3. Snuffleupagus would sit on him and crush Sweetums to death.

    1) I was at home when The Phantom Menace opened. Internal wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued upon first viewing. Rending of clothing and lamentation. Make it stop. Please.
    2) I would travel to the week before the stock market crash (you pick which one haha)..
    3) No contest. Sweetums. He looks like a hobo, but he’s not on drugs.

    April 23, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    1) Home & oblivious to the opening of The Phantom Menace
    2) I would time travel to see the Wright Brothers as they attempted to fly
    3)I think Snuffleupagus would come out on top because there is so much of him to outpower Sweetums

  4. David Norton

    April 23, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    1) Home & What? Why?
    2) Beginning/End of the Universe just to hear what Doge had to say about it.
    3) Sweetums, I don’t think ol’ Snuffles would even fight back.

  5. Kevin Thomas

    April 23, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    1) Home and asleep and who thought that was good.
    2) the time of the drawing of all numbers of 1/2 billion dollar lottery then 2 days back
    3) Sweetums or Snuffles would not fight it’s a kid thing back.

    April 23, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    1. I must have been home asleep as I didn’t know when it opened and still have not seen it.
    2. Time travel is interesting there are important events to me but historical ones I think would be 911 and stop the tragedy before it started.
    3. Snuffels would win, his trunk is powerful.

  7. German Lopez

    April 24, 2014 at 6:28 am

    1) I was actually waiting in line for the midnight showing. Being a fan of the series, I just had to see it on day one. Pretty big disappointment.
    2) I think if i could travel back in time, I would go to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, such an important event.
    3) If Snuffles and Sweetums got into a brawl, i think i would root for Sweetums, he looks more “hood” and “street”.

  8. Bradley B.

    April 24, 2014 at 6:44 am

    1) In line for the 2:00am showing. Jar-Jar was fine until his first line.
    2) The Cruxifiction of Christ
    3) Snuffleupagus

      1. I was at the theaters with my cousin. I was only like 7 at the time and I thought jar-jar talked hilariously and I wanted him as a pet.
      2. I would go back to the year 2000 and put all my money into AAPL and GOOG haha.
      3. Sweetums, he looks way better than Snuggleupagus therefore he would win a fight (logic?).

    1. I was at home and not impressed. 2. I would like to have been in D.C. during the funeral for JFK. 3. Sweetums would win.

  10. Sarah H

    April 24, 2014 at 9:21 am

    1) In a movie theater, horrified I paid money for this.
    2) I’d travel to the day before the biggest powerball jackpot in history to buy the winning number ticket
    3) Sweetums, Snuggleupagus is a push-over.

  11. Nate C

    April 24, 2014 at 9:51 am

    1) I was at home and most likely in bed, sleeping. My first response to Jar-Jar Binks was to wonder how he was going to die.
    2) I would visit my father 2 years after I had been born and give him a comprehensive future-history about major global events and the economy.
    3) Sweetums would win a fight with Snuffleupagus, hands down. He scares me.

  12. Paul M.

    April 24, 2014 at 3:39 pm

    1: I was in the woods camping when the Phantom Menace opened. When I did see the movie, Jar-Jar Binks was fine until he started talking.
    2: I would travel through time to November 19th, 1963. I would need these 3 days to persuade the secret service of what was about to happen. I would also send myself a package filled with everything I know about what happened since so that I and humanity could benefit from this hindsight. If you are going to mess with the timeline, you might as well go all in.
    3:While it isn’t likely, if a fight between Snuffleupagus and Sweetums occurred I would put my money on Snuffleupagus. The reasons for this choice is that Sweetums is known for niceness and Snuffleupagus may weigh up to 6 tons and have an eleven foot long trunk. This gives him along reach with a lot of weight and power behind it.

  13. Scott M

    April 24, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    1 – I was in the AF in the Garden State – my thought when I saw Jar-Jar was that it felt like someone had let Song of the South into the Star Wars set – too campy a stereotype
    2 – I would travel back to the late 70s and help Al Gore invent the Internet, and then I’d buy stock in Microsoft and Apple like there was no tomorrow
    3 – No question that Sweetums would break something off on Snuffleupagus – but that beat down would take a while since Snuffy has all the extra padding.

  14. Keith Kageff

    April 24, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    1.I was not going to movies too much at that point in my life. So I was doing boring regular every day stuff.
    2. I was positive George Lucas had gone insane!
    3.Sweetums has major sreet cred and is an angry muppet after being teased and tormented about his name for so long. He would rip poor Snuffy’s trunk off and shove it down his throat!

    • Keith Kageff

      April 24, 2014 at 9:08 pm

      2.I screwed that up! Ok I would travel back in time and stop George Lucas from making episode 1!

  15. Levi Martin

    April 25, 2014 at 8:56 am

    1) I was in a theater in Vancouver, WA, but I was young enough to only be disappointed that Jar Jar wasn’t funnier… it wasn’t until later that I became horrified.
    2) I’d go back to those apes discovering that obelisk and learning to use tools to kill each other… I just want to see if the whole scene was as symmetrical as everyone imagines it.
    3) Snuffelupagus has been studying various martial arts for the past 40 years in his pursuit of mind-body harmony and tranquility. He may wish to choose the path of self-denial, but when his training kicks in it will be over before it starts.

  16. Steve

    April 25, 2014 at 9:00 am

    1) Was at a midnight showing at our local theater, and when I first laid eyes on Jar-Jar, I knew what to expect from the rest of the trilogy. I was not wrong. :(

    2) To whenever Smokey and the Bandit had its first theatrical run and catch that film at the Drive-in.

    3) Sweetums, he just looks like a guy who would cut you for eyeballing him wrong.

  17. Deb

    April 25, 2014 at 10:13 am

    1) no doubt I was sleeping during the midnight opening and when I was saw Jar Jar, my reaction was What The Heck!
    2) doge, Tardis and I would travel to Obama’s inauguration, a time of such hope.
    3) Snufflelupagaus would prevail

  18. Lisa A.

    April 25, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    1) I was in Knoxville TN when the film opened, sadly at home and not in the theater. When I saw Jar-Jar, I was horrified and fascinated in equal measure!

    2) I would like to attend the execution of Anne Boleyn and see if she really had all those fingers or if that was just negative propaganda.

    3) Snuffleupagus would win, because cute always triumphs over scary.

  19. Francois

    April 26, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    1) When Phantom Menace opened, I was in the first showing at the Zigfeld movie theater in NYC having survived “the line”. When I first saw Jar-Jar, I had to ask the person next to me if I was suffering sleep deprevation induced hallucinations from having waited so long to see the movie.

    2) If I were smart, I’d travel in the TARDIS back to some point in time that would somehow benefit non-doge me financially. But life has proven I’m not that smart (ouch), and that would seriously upset The Doctor (double ouch). I don’t have to assume it’s some other Time Lord’s (or Lady’s) TARDIS as I’d just refuse the ride if that where the case. I would travel back to May 1999 when Phantom Menace was released. I’d cross my paws hoping it not to be a fixed point in time and I’d bite non-doge me in the butt hard enough to make sure I got off the line, spent the extra time with my future-wife-to-be, and waited for the movie to be released on home video instead.

    3) Snuffleupagus. But not intentionally. Snuffy is clumsy, and is likely to beat the stuffing out Sweetums by accident: knocking him out with tail or trunk while turning and sitting down on the dazed muppet. Also, everyone thought Snuffy was Big Bird’s imaginary friend for years as he kept “dissapearing” before anyone could see him. He may additionaly have inate talents or undisclosed special abilities, at least something similar to obfuscation from the White Wolf Vampire game which add to his advantages in a fight.

    1. Living in PA. When I first heard his annoying voice I was praying for his quick death.

    2. I would visit the pyramids construction and see how they really built it.

    3. Snuffleupagus

  21. Steven

    April 28, 2014 at 9:47 am

    1) I was in a movie theater, I think it was an AMC and my initial though when I saw Jar-Jar was: “Look the Muppets are back!”

    2)If I was Doge with a TARDIS for a day I would probably end up at the French Revolution, Verify that Les Miserables was historically accurate.

    3) Sweetums, but only by accident. Snuffleupagus would be ready to kill and Sweetumswould be like” No, I don’t want to fight. He would then sit on Snuffleupagus to calm him down but end up suffocating him.

  22. Thomas Meadows

    April 28, 2014 at 9:48 am

    1. In bed
    2. The Birth of Jesus
    3. Sweetums

    April 28, 2014 at 10:00 am

    1) at the theater
    2) 200,000 years to see prehistoric life
    3) Snuffleupagus

  25. Justin M

    April 28, 2014 at 10:07 am

    1) I was trying to sleep, but too excited to see it the next day. When I first saw Jar Jar I thought it was strange that George Lucas had given so much screen time to a weird cartoon rabbit.

    2) I would go back to see who really assassinated JFK. The problem is that I would probably be blamed and it would change the course of history.

    3)Sweetums would win, I’m pretty sure he’s a licensed concealed carry. Unfortunately Snuffle brought a trunk to a gun fight.

  26. Stu Akerman

    April 28, 2014 at 10:09 am

    1) Waiting on line. Dumbfounded
    2) I would travel back in time one year ago just to remind me how life has improved since The Checkout
    3) Snuffleupagus – he’s crazy

  27. Richard

    April 28, 2014 at 10:09 am

    1. I was at home when the Phantom Menace opened and my first response to having seen the horror that is Jar Jar Binks was the same as my response to having seen the horror that was two naked drunk men fighting on a snow covered street. I didn’t want to look but I also could not help but look.

    2. If I could be doge and time travel to one historical event, I would travel back in time to the few minutes before I saw two naked drunk men fighting on a snow covered street and tell me to walk the other way.

    3. Without a doubt, Snuffleupagus would win a fight with Sweetums. I’ve always been a bit leary of Snuffleupagus, there’s some real inner darkness behind those soft, pleasant eyes.

  28. Dan

    April 28, 2014 at 10:11 am

    1. Home. Thinking they should have left him out – as well as the ewoks.
    2. 1986 when Microsoft went public.
    3. Sweetums would destroy that slow,tired overgrown anteater.

  29. Pete Tran

    April 28, 2014 at 10:13 am

    1) I said to myself, “COOL!” I mean he is a very creative creature.
    2) I would go back and prevent myself from getting into my near fatal car accident.
    3) Snuffleupagus all day.

  30. Michael Karas

    April 28, 2014 at 10:19 am

    1) What’s a Phantom Menace? Is Jar-Jar a rapper?
    2) The point in time when Vice-President Al Gore invented the internet.
    3) Sweetums. Once he sinks his teeth into Snuff, it’s game over.

  31. TheBippi

    April 28, 2014 at 10:20 am

    1) In the theatre, actually enjoying Jar Jar’s appearance! LOL
    2) Right during THE big bang!
    3) Sweetums looks more agile…#justsayin

  32. Michael

    April 28, 2014 at 10:23 am

    1) I was probably at home when “The Phantom Menace” opened. When I finally got around to seeing it, I remember thinking that Jar-Jar Binks was just sooooo corny.

    2) I would go back to when Microsoft was first hiring and offer to work strictly for stock? :-D

    3) Sweetums would kick Snuffie’s ass!! LOL

  33. Wilson Lin

    April 28, 2014 at 10:26 am

    1. At home and I bet I was wondering either when McDonalads would have another Filet O Fish sale or when they would bring back the McRib again.

    2.I would travel to when Michael Bay was conceived and kill him on the spot so he would not grow up and ruin the Transformer and TMNT name.

    3. well depends if they are fighting for anything. since i presume Snuffleupagus is always high on something and Sweetums looks like some kind of homeless puppet, if there was some weed or crack on the line then Snuffleupagus would wreck it, however if lets say it was a box of pizza then hobo Sweetums would take the win.

  34. sam cheng

    April 28, 2014 at 10:32 am

    1. At the Midnight screening Jar-jar is not funny and an idiot.
    2. Birth of Christ.
    3. Handsdown Sweetums would win.

  35. Raphael Salgado

    April 28, 2014 at 10:33 am

    1. Thanks to a relative, I was able to bump the line on opening night, but we were bum-rushed by a bunch of pungent geeks in pseudo-Jedi costumes. After a few minutes of hearing Jar-Jar Binks, it confirmed my suspicions that the marketing department was the real evil Empire behind the production of Episode I.

    2. I would’ve prevented my stupid ass from tearing my ACL from screwing around during rehearsals.

    3. Sweetums looks like he has a dark, gritty side, like most recent movies and remakes. Given enough motivation, he could likely eviscerate Mr. Snuffleupagus and eat his entrails in one fell swoop.

  36. Edward

    April 28, 2014 at 10:38 am

    1) In S.F. when The Phantom Menace opened. I didn’t see the movie until the following day. My response when I first laid eyes on Jar-Jar Binks was, “Yuck!”
    2)If I could be Doge and time travel in the TARDIS for one day, the historical event that I would visit would be the surrender of Japan aboard the USS Missouri at Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.
    3)Who would win in a fight between Snuffleupagus and Sweetums? No doubt Sweetums. Snuffleupagus is just looks too laid back and Sweetums looks plain crazy.

  37. Pat

    April 28, 2014 at 10:46 am

    1. I still refuse to acknowledge the fact that he exists.
    2. I’d travel back to the day before Apple went public, to buy as many shares as I could.
    3. No contest. Sweetums is like a deranged crackhead, and Snuffy is on some kind of depressants. Sweetums FTW

  38. Vassilis

    April 28, 2014 at 10:54 am

    1) In the movie theater. Didn’t mind him until he opened his mouth.

  41. Evan

    April 28, 2014 at 11:00 am

    1) I was in San Diego, and I thought “Why did they ruin my favorite movie trilogy”.
    2) I would travel to the day that Hachi’s owner died and save him from cancer. Hachi-like dogs look out for each other.
    3) Sweetums looks like a heroin addict, and Snuffleupagus can defeat a heroin addict.

    1. At home sleeping & I had no response.
    2. I’d go back to March 2012 to find my previous self and tell myself the winning Mega Millions lottery numbers of the 2nd largest Mega Millions jackpot (I’d buy my ticket 1 game before the winner won so I wouldn’t have to split the winnings).
    3. Sweetums.

    April 28, 2014 at 11:21 am

    1. I was at work when the movie came out, and thought it’s time for the dog track for George Lucas and friends….

    April 28, 2014 at 11:23 am

    1 – I was in the theater wearing all black, with floppy disks, and glow sticks on my chest as part of my Darth Vader costume. I had made a Darth Vader helmet out of foam, but had to take it off when the Jabba behind me threatened to touch me with his buttery sausage-fingers. When Meesa saw JarJar, and realized he would be talkie lika that throughout the whole movie, meesa considered putting on the foam Darth Vader mask and accept the consequences.
    2 – I’d go back to when they were casting the voice of JarJar and talk the producers out of giving him lines, and reducing his role to comedic mime only.
    3 – I’m afraid of Sweetums. I hear he’s covered in prison tats and is working in the car lot to satisfy his parole. He’d mount Snuffy and ride him all over town.

  47. Ryan

    April 28, 2014 at 11:37 am

    1. I was in college and when I saw
    there is no Jar-Jar Binks
    there is no Jar-Jar Binks
    there is no Jar-Jar Binks
    there is no Jar-Jar Binks
    there is no Jar-Jar Binks
    there is no ….
    2. I would go back and shoot Hitler … with a water pistol and then get him a Jewish prostitute.
    3.Snuffleupagus, a straight up ninja that only allows himself to be seen by Big Bird.

  48. Bern

    April 28, 2014 at 11:40 am

    1. I was attending a theater in Baton Rouge, LA.
    2. I would travel to the moment when George Lucas decided to put Jar-Jar in the phantom menace and sway him with a couple Twinkies.

  49. Mazen Basidiq

    April 28, 2014 at 11:48 am

    1. I called in sick for work and went to the theater to see it, but then saw my department managers and directors there…I went to work, but saw it the next day. I though jarjar looked like a cool new alien…then he spoke and I was annoyed by him..

    2. I would go back in time to invest all my money into Amazon, Apple, and Google before they went public.

    3. Sweetums without a doubt! Sweetums has 2 sharp teeth, and 2 hand to use. Snuffy only has that trunk to fight with.

  50. jkimod

  53. Eliot

    April 28, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    1) I was in high school when Episode I was released, in a little town in IL. My first response was that he was a dopey little side kick with an…. ole timey accent.

    2) I would time travel to building of the pyramids to see if aliens really did help build them.

    3) Just look at Sweetums; you can tell he’s done some things in life that he’s not proud of and putting a royal pounding on that innocent Snuffleupagus wouldn’t even make the top 10. Sweetums wins.

    1. In line to watch this movie. I was like “serious”?
    2. Assuming I can come back, I would like to travel back in time to see dinosaurs and take some pics.
    3. Snuff of course. He is related to dinosaurs and plus he probably has an extra 200-300 pounds over that car wash guy.

  55. Han Solo

    1)I was in my room on the internet looking up the definition of “feculence”. There are no words to describe my horror when I first saw the feculence called Jar-Jar Binks, subsequently leading to my bewilderment and doubt in the creative abilities of George Lucas.

    2)If I was doge with a tardis for a day, I would travel back in time to the date of the evolution of Felis catus to attack the progenitor at the source thus ending the great war between Felis catus and Canis lupus familiaris. However, since Felis catus is well know to posses time travel abilities in the future, similar to the Daleks, this would inevitable result in a time war, much like the Last Great Time War of the Time Lords and the Daleks that led to the destruction of Gallifrey. I would hope that my actions would not lead to the analogous destruction of Earth.

    3)Sweetums for the win! He is full of rage from sexual frustration since no other muppet will !*#@* him. Snuffleupagus has no genitalia.

  56. Linda

    April 28, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    1) I cannot remember where I was the day Episode 1 opened because it was too long ago, but I do remember watching the film at the theater thinking “I don’t get this” even though I have watched Star Wars as a child.
    2) I would travel back to July 11, 1997 when Amazon’s stock price was only $2.29, so that I could buy 40,000 shares and sell it when it reached its peak at $404.
    3) Snuffelupagus would win the fight because his big sad eyes would stop all fights.

  57. Cynthia

    April 28, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    1)I was at home when episode 1 was released. When I first saw Jar-Jar Binks, I was deeply disturbed that someone could make him look so ugly.
    2)If I could time travel back in time I would go back to our family vacation when both my parents were alive, and we were all together.
    3)I know for sure that Snuffleupagus would win, because he is bigger and quicker.

  58. Mark

    1.) Home and somebody shoot that thing before it says anything else.
    2.) Back about 25 years or so for some smart investing and dawn of the computer age.
    3.) Snuffles for sure.

  59. Paul

    April 28, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    1. In the theater on opening night! My reaction was: “This is what happens when you let George Lucas off his leash. Sit boy!
    2. Apparently this picture indicates that Doge wend to Trenzalore and fell through his own time stream…Trippy stuff!
    3. I mean Sweetums looks pretty fierce but I’m going to give it to Snuffleupagus. If it goes down to the ground, I think Snuffle has the advantage in size and using his nose as an extra limb. Definitely would be a good fight, Sweetums would come out swinging but would wear down soon enough.

    April 28, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    1)Waiting in line to watch the movie – my immediate thoughts on Jar-Jar: “WTF-that thing is F*cking annoying”
    2) I would time travel to see Gettysburg Address
    3)Sweetums chanels inner Animal psychoness and slaughters snuffy in a fit of rage before realizing what he’s really done.

  62. Joe B

    April 28, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    1. a. I can say I know I was somewhere on earth. Probably on land somewhere unless I was swimming or surfing or caught a flight to Paris that day.
    b. My 1st thought was… What’s Lucas been smokin’

    2. I would like to go back and see if there really was an Adam and Eve. If there was, then I would tell Adam there was another apple tree right over there, put a move on Eve and be the father of all humans.

    3. Sweetums, cuz he looks like he would cut you.. cut you bad..

  63. Tony Harris

    April 28, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    1. Was sleeping. Finally saw and didn’t think he was too stupid or annoying…just slightly.
    2. When Douglas Adams was first feeling sick and I would tell him to get to a doctor right away as he will die otherwise. Alternative would be telling Andy Irons not to go to a hotel, but a hospital so he wouldn’t die.
    3. Snuffy. He’s got the reach, weight, and he’s tough to spot.

  64. Ning

    April 28, 2014 at 2:51 pm

    1. WTF
    2. The first flight of Wright brothers
    3. Snuffleupagus

  65. Marc

    April 28, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    1. I was in the 11th grade when Episode 1 and my first response to Jar-Jar was “wtf.”
    2. I’d take the TARDIS to when DaVinci was working on the Mona Lisa and find out who it really was!
    3. Sweetums

  66. Jordan

    April 28, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    1. I was sleeping during the midnight release because I was only 9. Haven’t ever seen it. I’ve never seen the entire original trilogy, either. Blasphemy, I know.

    2. Wow. Tuff question. Much thought. Would travel too anxint Egipt and kill many cat. Wow. Good ask.

    3. The real question is how many Snuffleupaguses could Sweetums kill before they overpowered him. 1 on 1? Sweetums in a landslide victory.

  67. Ken T.

    April 28, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    1. I have no idea where I was. I don’t even remember when the movie opened. I have no comment regarding Jar-Jar Binks as I have yet to watch the movie!
    2. Jerusalem, for the birth of Jesus Christ.
    3. I think Sweetums would win because he looks like a monster and would probably fight like one. Also, isn’t Snuffleupagus imaginary?

  68. Eric Cain

    April 28, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    1. Stood in line for hours waiting for opening and was later mad about it.
    2. My own birth.
    3. Sweetums I bet he fights dirty.

  69. SomeCallMeTim

    April 28, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    1). In a theater in Raleigh, NC. Reaction? OWTGDF?!?!? (PG13 version: “huh?”)

    2) Ancient Egypt to switch their worship of cats to dogs.

    3). Sweetums. As the epic battle starts, Big Bird averts it’s eyes to avoid seeing the horrid violence. When BB eyes close, good ol’ Snuffy disappears, leaving only Sweetums standing.

  70. Rauel Crespo

    April 28, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    1) I was 19. Pretty hyped to see it, was a bit thrown off by Jar-Jar, with my hate for him only growing as his screen-time in the movie increased. I argued that that thing ruined the movie.

    2)As a Time-Traveling Doge I would go to the signing of the Declaration of Independence and attempt to author it. Example: “Much History…So scare…England…What r you doing….l-b-i-r-t-e-y….Wow…representation”

    3)Using mind-games I believe that Sweetums would convince Snuffleupagus to commit suicide. He would go back to a trauma in Snuffleupagus to a time that his innocence was lost. However he wasn’t the victim, no his innocence was lost when during a heated argument with a particularly strict art teacher, Snuffleupagus formed a wicked scheme. The next morning as the art teach drank her coffee the class looked horrified as chunks of her face plopped onto her desk. As she collapses to the ground knocking over the coffee all over the table, suddenly the table fizzes up, showing that a corrosive acid was mixed in with the coffee. As the students in the class panic in the horror Snuffleupagus, sits silently seeing the fruits of his insane labor, suppressing this incident and this side of him. Once completing this journey through the history of the mind Snuffleupagus begs Sweetums to kill him, he doesn’t want to be a monster again. Sweetums simply drops a gun in front of him and casually walks out of the room. Once outside, closing the door behind him into an empty alley, Sweetums takes a deep breath and looks to the moon. After a few moments of silence the muffled sound of a gunshot is heard from the room he just left. Sweetums pulls a tattered page torn from a year book, A Yearbook Memorial for an art teacher. Sweetums whispers into the night, “We did it Mom.”

  71. Tom

    April 28, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    1. I was at home when the Phantom Menace opened. Jar Jar bunks is terrible.

    2. I would go see Abraham Lincoln.

    3. Sweetums would win.

  72. Keith Graham

    April 28, 2014 at 4:36 pm

    1) I was living in Nyack and went with my best friend Jim. It was awful. It was very embarrassing to have to witness it.
    2) I would go back and visit the Royal Society in the early 1700s and talk with Newton, Leibniz, Hook, Pepys and all of the other great minds that created modern science.
    3) Sweetums wins easily.

  73. John Schamel

    April 28, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    1) George Lucas came to our Walmart Holiday meeting and showed the management an advanced screening of the movie. When I saw Jar Jar, all I could think was how much it would cost me in markdowns to move through all the crappy Jar Jar merchandise my stores were about to get flooded with. However, I was wrong because people still bought everything despite how bad the movie was.
    2) I would travel back in time to buy a winning lottery ticket. Then tell the Walmart buyers not to buy so many Garth Brooks box sets as a parting gift to my managers before I quit the company.
    3)This is easy! Sweetums would win for sure. Mr. Snuffleupagus is too passive and wouldn’t even try.

  74. aaron

    April 28, 2014 at 5:16 pm

    1 i was in school jar jar looked alot weirder than any alien in the set.
    2 i would travel back to any mistakes i made and fix them
    3 definately sweetums he looks street “smarter”

  75. Ugh

    April 28, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    1. I was in college when Phantom Menace came out. My reaction to Jar-Jar was, “This is the most annoying attempt at comic relief since Scrappy Doo.”

    2. I’d like to solve the mystery of the Mary Celeste, and I think I could do that with a TARDIS.

    3. Sweetums wins hands down. He’s got a thousand yard stare and is showing up to a fight wearing tatters.

  76. K

    April 28, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    1) I was at the premiere. My first though was this could be an interesting character… and then he talked.

    2) I would go back to “once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away…”

    3) Sweetums, would snuffleupagus even fight back?

  77. James Shum

    April 28, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    1. I was asleep when Phantom Menace first came out, I follow many many pop culture cults, but Star Wars is not one of them unfortunately. Probably because I watched the Star Wars movies too late into my teens.
    2. So many to choose, so many to choose…..But if I WAS to time travel in a TARDIS, that must mean the TARDIS exists. That must also mean that the doctor is real!!! AND that would mean, I could travel back to the moment when doctor was born and FINALLY learn his name…..
    3. Sweetums would definitely win! if not for the fangs, then for the pure fact that Snuffleupagus was constantly high!

  78. J

    April 28, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    1. Asleep. Didn’t think much of Jar Jar until he opened his mouth, then realized what an abomination he was. 2. I’d see Alexander the Great. 3. Sweetums for sure.

  79. Joe Chavez

    April 28, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    1) The Phantom Menace had its midnight opening. I’ve went the next day and thought I was surely hallucinating the stupid Jar crap I was seeing.I then stopped doing drugs for the rest of my life.

    2) I would travel back to the assassination of JFK,go to the book depository and knock that asshole out.

    3) Snuffleupagus would win because he is invisible to most and would hit without being seen.

  80. Alex Wu

    April 28, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    1) I was at Century Theaters 16 in Sunnyvale, CA and my immediate thought was “I hope they kill this character by the end of the movie.”
    2) I would travel to watch the birth of Jesus.
    3) Snuffleupagus would win.

  81. Jin Cen

    April 28, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    1. I was at home and indifferent about the movie. However, the sight of Jar-Jar Binks caused me to rally against the movie on the internet.

    2. If I was a doge and had the tardis for a day, I would travel back in time before Hitler’s rise to power and bite his face off.

    3. Of course Sweetums would win! He’s an ogre with fangs!

  82. steve moss

    April 28, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    I was in college and I thought Jar Jar looked interesting, until he tried to speak
    I would go back to the worst decision I made and change it
    I think Sweetums would pile drive Snuffy

  83. Dan Westby

    April 28, 2014 at 9:20 pm

    1. I saw it opening day and thought Jar Jar was the most annoying movie character ever and he ruined the movie.

    2. I’d go back in time just like in Hot Tub Time Machine and come up with google.com

    3. Snuffleupagus would choke him out with his trunk.

  84. Tommy Boy

    April 28, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    1) I had gotten too old for this movie. The franchise was just a distant memory from the opening day May 25, 1977 of Star Wars in a galaxy Far, Far Away. Jar Jar did what Scrappy Doo did to Scooby Doo.
    2) I would go back to May 25, 1977 and relive the opening day of Star Wars and if that were not possible, I would settle on a bargain I missed on Bens Bargains.
    3)Snuffleupagus would crush Sweetums

  85. John Dough

    April 28, 2014 at 9:30 pm

    1. I was home when he Phantom Menace opened and I openly wept when I first laid eyes on the horror of Jar-Jar Binks. I am weeping now thinking of that horror

    2. I would travel back to when Lucas and Spielberg decided to create Jar Jar and stop that disaster from occurring. Doge of course would help.
    Snuffleupagus beats Sweetums when Big Bird jumps in and tag teams with Snuffy.
    3.

  86. Carl

    April 28, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    1) I was visiting family when ‘Phantom Menace’ came out. I was impressed by George Lucas’ use of graphics and pre-1970 high-tech to give the film the “pre-quel” look. Jar-jar Binks was clearly the comedic relief for the film, not the horrific character he was built up to be.
    2) If I could be a dog and time travel in the TARDIS for one day, I would enjoy going back to the Revolutionary War and standing on the bank of the Potomac when Gen Washington and his troops were crossing. That is a very special part of history.
    3) If a fight between Snuffleupagus and Sweetums were to occur (very unlikely), I would go with Sweetums. He has the mobility and physical capablity, and could overcome the size difference. But, that is pie in the sky.

  87. david ho

    April 28, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    1) I was at home sleeping and I thought who killed the duck.
    2) I will time travel back to visit Jesus.
    3) Snuffleupagus will kill Sweetums with his snuffling hair.

  88. Lisa Carr

    April 28, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    1. I was at the theater, watching it. My first thought was, “what the what?”.
    2. I’d travel back to high school, and say turn my date down. Yes, it was an historical event to me.
    3. Sweetums. Snuffy just doesn’t have it in him.

  89. Boaz

    April 28, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    1. I saw it in the theaters and I found Jar Jar to be incredibly annoying. And insulting to Jamaicans everywhere.
    2. I’d travel back in time to do some good like prevent 9/11 or the Holocaust. Would also be curious to travel back to biblical times to see how accurate the text is.
    3. Tough call. Sweetums looks tough, but if Snuffleupagus could manage to sit on him, it would be all over.

  90. Jacob LaFountaine

    April 28, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    1. I saw it in the theaters and thought what kind of crap is this?
    2. The day before the Big Bang. Suck on that one
    3. Sweetums. Looks like some crazy junkie

  91. deekay

    April 28, 2014 at 11:09 pm

    1. Sleeping. Jar Jar , 2 Jars too many.
    2. Go back and tell myself to invent Facebook.
    3. Sweetums, Snuff wouldn’t even try, probably lay down and take it.

  92. Mathew

    April 28, 2014 at 11:17 pm

    1) In the theater, and it wasn’t necessarily the sight of Jar-Jar that was the horror, but rather his voice. Please, make it stop.

    2) Probably to visit the Son of Man at any point of his time on Earth.

    3) Gotta give it to Snuff.

  93. sm

  95. Dr. Jan Itor

    April 29, 2014 at 2:03 am

    1) When _The Phantom Menace_ opened, I was in a movie theater and enjoying myself more than I should have been; my reaction to Jar-Jar Binks was indifference.

    2) I’d travel back to the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and perhaps ask them to make a few things clearer.

    3) Sweetums would destroy Snuffleupagus.

  96. Bryan Lamb

    April 29, 2014 at 5:35 am

    1) I was home and disinterested in The Phantom Menace. I didn’t realize that was Jar-Jar Binks until I saw the lame ‘Lion King on Broadway’ look in the picture above.
    2) I would go back to middle school and close the deal with that girl that told me later she was up for closing the deal at the time.
    3) Sweetums. 2 words, opposable thumbs.

  97. Kent Li

    April 29, 2014 at 6:41 am

    1) I was at home sleeping. I thought that Jar-Jar Binks scene is pretty creative.
    2) I would travel to the beginning of time.
    3) Snuffleupagus would win because the innocent ones are the most dangerous.

  98. Greg

    April 29, 2014 at 6:45 am

    1. Duluth, MN. Attending college. The annoyance didn’t sink in until the second time I saw the movie.
    2. I would go back and watch the MN Twins win the 1991 World Series again. :)
    3. Sweetums. He looks tough.

  99. Andrew

    April 29, 2014 at 8:15 am

    I was at the Theatre when it came out of course haha. I saw the midnight showing and was VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED except for the pod racing… JAR JAR NO FUN.

    I’d go back to the time the first life form began. Then I would live in solitude with the archaic cells since there are no humans.

    Snuffleupagus. It’s the quiet ones that are good at…

  100. Bao

    April 29, 2014 at 8:40 am

    1. at home
    2. go back to date my high school sweet heart
    3. Snuffleupagus would win

  101. Sam

    April 29, 2014 at 9:11 am

    1. I was at home watching TV when a star wars commercial came on.
    2. Time travel when I was a kindergarten. I always took nap time for granted back then.
    3. Sweetums would win since he got a killer smile.

  102. Rob Davy

    April 29, 2014 at 9:34 am

    1) Where were you when The Phantom Menace opened and what was your response when you first laid eyes on the horror of Jar-Jar Binks? In 1999, I was watching The Phantom Menace up in DuPont, Washington. And, I loved the character of Jar-Jar Binks! Jar-Jar acted provided the comedic relief that the movie needed in my opinion. I went to the theater on the first showing of the original Star Wars back in 1977, and I loved it just as much. This is my favorite series of all time by far.
    2) If you could be Doge and time travel in the TARDIS for one day, to what historical event would you visit? The TARDIS is a Time and Relative Dimension in Space time machine and spacecraft. If I were Dr. Doge, I would want to go back to find the first fire hydrant ever created so I could leave my mark on it.
    3) Who would win in a fight between Snuffleupagus and Sweetums, that big Muppet working on the car lot in The Muppet Movie? Snuffleupagus would lose against Sweetums because he is associated with the original Channel 13 (PBS), and everyone knows 13 is an unlucky number.

  103. Jillian Tyre

    April 29, 2014 at 9:37 am

    I didn’t get into Star Wars until I met my boyfriend 10 years ago. He collected figures, and we used to have one bedroom just for their display. I love Jar-Jar, his voice is the cutest!! I have no clue who Doge is, and most historical events involve bloodshed, so I’ll pass. As much as I love the Muppets, Snuffy would totally win.

  104. Tom

    April 29, 2014 at 9:41 am

    1) I was standing in line at the theater when The Phantom Menace opened. My initial response when I first laid eyes on the horror of Jar-Jar Binks was nuetral, neither positive nor negative. It was when Jar-Jar Binks started to talk that I got extremely annoyed.

    2) If I could time travel in the TARDIS for one day, the historical event I would like to visit would be the moment Christ left his burial tomb.

    3) In a Snuffleupagus and Sweetums fight, Sweetums would win easily. The reason being is Snuffleupagus is imaginary.

  105. Jennifer

    April 29, 2014 at 9:45 am

    1. I was in San Francisco and, since it was my first visit, I was shocked that it was chilly enough to need a hoodie. My first thoughts upon seeing Jar-Jar were, ‘Oh, this is George’s attempt at cuteness. ….wait, no, this is George’s attempt to run the franchise into the ground. WHY, GEORGE, WHY?!’

    2. I’d go to the writing of the Constitution to make sure it explicitly and in detail spelled out freedom, justice and equality for all so that slavery, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc would never have been issues in this country. I’d also make sure American Indian rights were protected and would have insisted on holding councils with the tribes to come up with the most favorable solution possible.

    3. I think it would be a surprisingly violent brawl, with fluff and eyes flying. In the end it would be a draw, and each would crawl away and die within ten feet of the battleground. How could you pit such innocent creatures against each other, you monsters?! I hope you’re happy.

  106. Adam

    April 29, 2014 at 10:02 am

    1. In Sacramento, and my response was “Wait, did someone get a fake bootleg copy of this movie?”

    2. 1 word: Woodstock. Nuff said.

    3. Sweetums has that determination in the eyes that tells you who will win. Snuffleupagus doesn’t stand a chance with those adorable eyes.

  107. Mike

    April 29, 2014 at 10:21 am

    1. I was too old for this movie and didn’t really care, but thought, dude, loosen that thing around your neck, it’s making your eyes bulge. :^)
    2. Go back to Dallas and make Kennedy’s limo swerve off course so he would miss the parade route.
    3. Snuffy – he could squeeze him to death with his trunk.

  108. Grant

    April 29, 2014 at 10:35 am

    1. I was at an early showing and stared in horror as the ridiculous Jar-Jar came on screen.
    2. I would go back and turn Hitler into a prison bitch.
    3. Sweetums would win Snuffleupagus seems like a pacifist.

  109. >^V

    April 29, 2014 at 10:46 am

    1) In the theater for the first new Star Wars movie in years. First thought: “Hey! they are trying to add a little humor to the universe (Saving the Galaxy is heavy, depressing work). My second thought was Crap! someone should’a added some humor to this movie because saving the universe is heavy work.

    2) Either,Go back and save myself from buying a ticket to see the Phantom Menace, or go back to this Morning and grab a light jacket…, it’s kinda cool outside.

    3). Nobody gets in your face like Snuffleupagus gets in your face…, Hell.., just look at that face.

  110. isaias garcia

    April 29, 2014 at 11:28 am

    1) I was at work. When I first saw Jar-Jar Binks, I thought he was funny looking.

    2) Since I would be a dog, my ability to experience any historical event would be limited to what a dog’s brain can comprehend. I guess I’ll just choose watching Mozart play a concert.

    3) While Snuffleupagus is the sentimental favorite, he’s not a fighter. Sweetums would win the fight.

    1. Saw the movie when it opened and was disappointed. Jar Jar just brought the movie down even more.
    2. Travel back to the final game and see the NY Mets win the world series in 1986.
    3. Snuffleupagus would sit on him and crush Sweetums to death.

    1.) I was in line for the midnight showing, by the end of the movie I wish Jar Jar was in a Can Can in the back of the pantry.

    2.) I would like to travel back to the stock opening of Microsoft. Then I could change my life in oh so many ways from a financial standpoint of course.

    3.) Snuffleupagus would win, four legs, long nose, has Sweetums by several hundred pounds, not even a contest. Final move would be the “Snuffle Slam”!

    1. Asleep at home, I was relieved that jarjar was cgi so no actor had the humiliation of actually being costumed as jarjar.
    2. I would travel back to the construction of Stonehenge to see who really built it and why.
    3. Gotta be Sweetums. He lifted a car, what have you ever seen Snuffleupagus lift besides his nose.

    1- I haven’t the slightest clue because i am not a star wars fan. Didn’t think Jar Jar Binks was a good thought out character.
    2- I think i would travel back in time and prevent the Titanic from sinking then we wouldn’t have to be subjected to that movie anymore.
    3- I am going against the majority of people here and saying Snuffleupagus. I think a couple swings of that Schnauzer could knock anyone out cold.

    1) Where were you when The Phantom Menace opened and what was your response when you first laid eyes on the horror of Jar-Jar Binks? I was living in London and thought, “Wow….looks like my Uncle Andy.”
    2) If you could be Doge and time travel in the TARDIS for one day, to what historical event would you visit? I’d travel back to the days of Ancient Rome and meet Caligula to answer the question, “Party animal or sicko?”
    3) Who would win in a fight between Snuffleupagus and Sweetums, that big Muppet working on the car lot in The Muppet Movie? Snuffleupagus would win because with a name like that, you have to grow up street-smart (aka a boy named Sue).

    1.I was in school and my reaction to Ep1 was “This isn’t Star Wars,but still a good movie for new fans”.
    2.I would time 1 day past as not to damage the time space continuum.
    3.Its a deathmatch, so both muppets would die.

    1). I was in Gainesville and my reaction was – “They MUST be kidding!”
    2). I’d travel to a time when my mother was alive so I could see what she was really like.
    3). Sweetums would win – Snuffy is nonviolent and slow. Sweetums is a maniac with two big blood-letting fangs. Eeeek!

    2. I would travel back in time to meet myself so that I could instruct the younger me to buy Apple at $19 per share.

    1. I was at home on Phoenix, Arizona. I thought he was ugly but didn’t like him as soon as he talked.
    2. I would travel back to Woodstock.
    3. Snuffleupagus, you can see it in his eyes… he has a crazy side.

    1) I was disappointed at a movie theater in Atlanta with my girlfriend (now wife).
    2) I would travel back to my 21st birthday and give myself the gift of future lottery numbers and sporting event outcomes.

    1. Meesa saw it at the theater. Meesa was nauseous by the end. That canyon race did not help my disgust of ole Jar-Jar.
    2.Easy-birth of Jesus Christ
    3.Sweetums. Hands down.

    1. I was asleep when it came out. When I saw Jar Jar, I was okay with it. When he spoke, I thought “the only thing worse would be a purple jabba that spoke like Truman Capote.” Noooooo!!!
    2. I would travel back to birth and kill my twin brother. There can be only one!
    3. Sweetums would win, but the rest of the Muppets would kill him in revenge and make Sweetums Rolls.

    1. Although I was snoozing when the Phantom Menace came out, the sight of Jar-Jar was alright with me initially but eventually became a facepalm character later on.
    2. I would travel into “a galaxy far, far away…” just to witness the first Star Wars opening.
    3. Snuffleupagus would be victorious over Sweetums.

    2. I would go to the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

    1. In high school, and “what is that floppy thing on the screen?”
    2. I would see the building of stone henge, to see who and how they build it.
    3. Snuffleupagus is imaginary, so he could use his mind control powers to take down Sweetums, one horrifying memory at a time.

    1. Atrocious. They’ve desecrated the memory of Star Wars. With all that money and with all those star actors, how could you screw this up so badly?
    2. I’d go back to when my father was alive.
    3. Since the “Snuff” was TKO’d by Oscar Dela Hoya in his comeback fight last year, he’s never been the same. Sweetums would be an easy victor.

    1. By definition, I was in hell at the time. Atrocious was my thought. They’ve desecrated the memory of Star Wars. With all that money and with all those star actors, how could you screw this up so badly?
    2. I’d go back to when my father was alive.
    3. Since the “Snuff” was TKO’d by Oscar Dela Hoya in his comeback fight last year, he’s never been the same. Sweetums would be an easy victor.
