Mecka-lecka hi, Mecka-hiney ho!
I was in college when Pee-wee’s Big Adventure first came out in movie theaters. Not sure how many times I saw it when it was first released, but it was enough that my friends and I regularly laughed as his catch phrases were thrown into everyday conversations.
Then when Pee-wee’s Playhouse began it’s run as a Saturday morning TV show, I still watched it regularly as a young adult. When I had kids of my own, we enjoyed watching it together and I still have my old VHS tape of the Christmas Special. I’m pretty sure that I’ve watched the special every holiday season for the last 2 decades.
Yes, I was excited to learn that Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special has now been restored and remastered in beautiful high definition. The characters and all of the intricate details of the quirky decor inside the playhouse seem to come to life and just pop off the screen. It is fantastic!
Guest stars who pop in for the holiday celebration include Oprah, Charo, Whoopi, Zsa Zsa and others.
I love this show! It’s great for adults like me who like to take a walk down memory lane and it’s full of fun for a whole new generation of kids. Pee-wee is a classic!
Release date 10/6/15

Amy Green says
My favorite special celebrity guest star on the “Pee-Wee’s House Playhouse” Christmas special is actress Annette Funicello. I thought it was so cool that the two of them got to co-star in the 1980’s movie that same year, “Back to the Beach”. Annette was always one of my favorite actresses. I loved watching her growing up on the Disney Channel. I love the part when she meets Pee-Wee’s friend, the ‘King of Cartoons’!

I remember this show fondly when it was on TV. It was such a fun and unusual program for kids. It’s unfortunate that Mr. Herman’s personal life choices tainted his image, but the show stands on it’s own and will continue to be enjoyed by the children in all of us. Thank you for the great giveaway.
