Join the whole Playhouse gang for one of the wackiest Christmas specials ever with laughs for the whole family and all the imagination and charm of Saturday morning's most outrageous TV series, which became a cultural milestone when it aired from 1986 to 1991. In this unique triple Emmy« nominated Christmas special, Pee-wee gets into the spirit of the season with lots of singing, dancing and other holiday fun with his Playhouse pals and more than a dozen celebrity guest stars as you've never seen them before. Everything's going great, except Pee-wee's Christmas wish list is so long that there won't be enough presents for all the other kids in the world if he gets everything he wants! When Santa Claus pleads for help, Pee-wee reluctantly gets a lesson in the true meaning of Christmas. Cast includes: Cowboy Curtis (Laurence Fishburne), Reba the Mail Lady (S. Epatha Merkerson), and Miss Yvonne (Lynne Stewart). Guest stars include: Frankie Avalon, Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Rivers, Charo, Del Rubio Triplets, Annette Funicello, Magic Johnson, Dinah Shore, Grace Jones, Oprah Winfrey, k.d. lang, Little Richard, Zsa Zsa Gabor.

#1 Charlie Brown Christmas
#2 How the Grinch Stole Christmas
#3 Pee Wee's Playhouse: Christmas Special.
It is that good. Better than Rudolph, Frosty, Perry Como, Andy Williams, and all the rest.
Where else could you find:
Frankie and Annette
The Marine Corps Choir (not the real one)
This show has more imagination and spunk than a dozen other shows.
Watch it again
If there is any bit of child-like wonder left in your soul, you'll enjoy this.
It starts off with the Marine choir, and has the best opening I have ever seen. Everybody and his brother makes a brief guest appearance, from Dinah Shore to Little Richard. It's innocent enough for kids and has lots of double-entendre stuff for the adults. And it has a great ending, with Pee-Wee realizing that, in his anticipation, he has been too selfish. So he and Santa come to a really satisfying solution. Get it for your kids, and if you don't have kids, get it for yourself and share it with your friends, neices and newphews.
