Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi - Palpatine's Cartoon Make-Up
In just about every scene with the emperor sitting in his throne, on the Death Star, he has some weird blobby-looking, hand-drawn shadow next to his right eye. What the heck is that thing?! Are they trying to cover up some latex that's pealing off his face? I only noticed it recently on the THX version . I thought they would've fixed it for the special edition, but it's still there.

Those shadows are the product of cheap lighting effects of the 70's when the films were made. The shadows are actually from very tightly focused Spotlights shone onto the emperors face in an attempt to get his eyes to glow. Didn't work too well and know we have slugs crawling over the creep's face. Kodiak

I noticed this too, and it shows up even more if you turn the brightness/contrast on the TV up high!

Maybe it was a foreshadowing of The Phantom Menace, George was trying to get us used to seeing animation on top of live action

Just FYI, Jedi was made in 1983, that would make it the 80's. (even Empire was 1980)
