Entertainment Weekly - 12/24/2004
"This droll CBS special, spun off from Reubens' wickedly imaginative Saturday-morning show, is practically nothing but guests -- and what a great, witty list it is."

Description by OLDIES.com:

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, a cultural milestone that aired from 1986 to 1991. Pee-Wee gets into the spirit of the season with lots of singing, dancing and other holiday fun with his Playhouse pals and 16 celebrity guests 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.

Product Description:

In this surreal pastiche of television-age nostalgia, sprung from the perpetually prepubescent mind of Paul Reubens, Pee-Wee and his friends celebrate Christmas in all kinds of unique, fun, and creative ways in a holiday special unlike any other. The wacky and outrageous Pee-Wee (Paul Reubens) has made a list for Santa; unfortunately it's so long that if he gets everything he wants, there won't be anything left over for the other children on Santa's route! Pee-Wee learns the true meaning of the Christmas spirit when he learns to share, and along the way he is visited by a bevy of celebrity stars, including Whoopi Goldberg, Frankie Avalon, Joan Rivers, Charo, Grace Jones, Annette Funicello, Magic Johnson, K.D. Lang, Zsa Zsa Gabore, and Little Richard. This Christmas classic is fun for the whole family, with all the cleverness and charm of the TV series, and was nominated for three Emmy Awards when it came out in 1988.
