"Okay, watch this. I'll turn these pebbles into sugar leaf taffy."
―Teebo entertains the woklings — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

Sugar leaf taffy was a type of sticky, pink taffy that was edible by Ewoks.[1] In 3 ABY,[2] on the Forest Moon of Endor, the Ewok Teebo tried to cheer up a quartet of woklingsMalani, Nippet, Wiley, and Winda Warrick—by using magic to transform pebbles into sugar leaf taffy. As Teebo performed the spell, the pebbles floated into the air, expanded, and burst, covering the Ewok's fur with the sticky confection. This delighted the woklings, until Malani noted that Teebo's taffy-covered appearance resembled Garth, the snake eater at Horville's Hut of Horrors.[1]

Sugar leaf taffy appeared in "Horville's Hut of Horrors,"[1] the sixteenth episode in the second season of the animated television series Ewoks. The episode was written by Paul Dini and premiered on November 15, 1986.[3]
