Yup, they had a Christmas special, too. And it was so crazy I swore I imagined the whole thing. Everyone from Oprah to Annette Funicello to Charo was on the show, making for one surreal piece of holiday nostalgia. Definitely worth seeking out on YouTube.
Pee Wee was a great show to grow up with on Saturday Mornings. A kid simply could not be bored with the show. If the action ever started to drag on in the foreground, there was so much going on in the background of every shot that the whole show was like a big “hidden pictures” game. Hey look back there, the floor has eyes and a mouth!
