7 Interesting Tidbits about R2-D2 & C-3PO in “Star Wars: Droids”

After having previously shared some initial observations about “Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO”, I wanted to point out some interesting tidbits/trivia I found from the series about our beloved droids:

  1. R2-D2 and C-3PO need to have a master, as C-3PO says in “The Lost Prince”: “What are we going to do now? We can’t function without a master.”
  2. C-3PO was made in a factory, as he states in “A Race to the Finish”: “It turns out that BL-17 and I graduated from the same production facility.” He also states in “The Roon Games: “I should never have left the assembly line.” Of course, once we see Anakin creating C-3PO in Episode I, that becomes C-3PO’s origin and not a production facility.

  1. R2-D2 not only can survive underwater, but he even has a propeller as well as a breathing apparatus for people to use as we see in “The Pirates of Tarnoonga”.
  2. “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” is said just once throughout the entire series: by C-3PO in “Escape Into Terror”.
  3. When C-3PO lands awkwardly, he occasionally gets bent out of shape, for instance, with a walking issue (“The Pirates of Tarnoonga”) or a neck issue (“Coby and the Starhunters”).
  4. C-3PO consistently bungles things up, while R2-D2 saves them.
  5. C-3PO frequently talks ill of R2-D2, such as in “The New King”, when he says: “Don’t follow R2, sir. He would get lost in an elevator.”

Bonus:
– We see a couple of the bounty hunters from episode V: Boba Fett in “A Race to the Finish” and IG-88 in “The New King”.
