Sorry I was unclear Gojifan... I meant citation for Lucas calling the microseries "canon".
It only seems that way because Anakin showed up when he did. And no one truly knows if Palpatine was faking it or not. He clearly wasn't just letting himself get beat down, because he killed several of the greatest duelists of the time very quickly.
As for the other comment, he was directly involved in the series. He was both the executive producer and one of two creators of the series. On top of that, he personally created many of the characters and scenarios of the episodes. He also referred to it as "the pilot" to the current animated cartoon in an interview.
