Santa may wanna step up his game because he may be able to deliver all those presents, but can he serve up the yuletide greetings like Pee-wee? Everyone’s favorite bow-tie wearing man-child get’s super festive for Christmas kicking his over-the-top antics into overdrive. With his upcoming movie headed to Netflix, we thought we’d flashback to the days when he was the king of Saturday morning with the Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special. Here are 5 ways Pee-wee does the holiday better than everyone else. (Check out the special, now streaming on Netflix.)
5. He makes creative greeting cards for his friends.
How do we get on this list?
4.He always has plenty of fruitcake
Surprisingly, it’s not the “secret word” of the Christmas special.
3. He shares his Christmas cheer with superstars like Cher
This must be what spending Christmas with a unicorn feels like.
2. He performs a holiday duet with Charo
Pee-Wee gets multicultural on Christmas, but this “Feliz Navidad” (or “Feliz Nablahblah” as Pee-wee pronounces it) duet with Charo is epic enough to be played anytime of year.
1. He appeared in a reggae Christmas video from 1984
Back in the day when MTV still played music and someone thought Bryan Adams playing a reggae song was a good idea, this gem happened. And it’s glorious.
