Pee-Wee's Christmas special is streaming! Mmmm, Christmas-y!

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?

    Since I never seen it, so I have to ask — is Cowboy Curtis in it? Please?!?

    After losing our VHS copy, I found this on DVD a couple years ago, and now my family has resumed watching it every year. It’s hard to pick my favorite part, but I think it’s PeeWee trying to say “Feliz Navidad” when Charo stops by.
