One of the all-time great holiday specials, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special, is streaming online at Pee-Wee’s official website. Thanks, Jambi!
I’m partial to the Grace Jones number just for the sheer strangeness of it, but my favorite is the Penny cartoon, just like it’s my favorite part of every episode of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.
Charro, Cher, Little Richard, Annette Funicello, Frankie Avalon, k.d. lang, Dinah Shore, Magic Johnson, Oprah, Zsa Zsa – is there nothing this special can’t do? You love it as much as I do, right, PopWatchers? Then why don’t you marry it?
