Many children, like myself, grew up on Pee Wee’s Playhouse. At the time, it was good ole’ playhouse fun. In retrospect, it could be the cause of dramatic issues in various adults’ lives. For those of you who enjoyed Pee Wee when you were younger you’re getting a special opportunity to revisit the playhouse on its 25th anniversary. To honor the show after 25 years, the ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special’ has been put online for free until January 12th. The show can be seen on YouTube.
This special wasn’t any ordinary episode of ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse’ either. The Christmas special was loaded with celebrity visitors including Cher, Oprah, Grace Jones, and many more. The number of celebrity cameos during the 48 minute show is actually pretty incredible. It’s a reflection of how truly popular the show was in the late 80′s and early 90′s..
We know it’s a little past Christmas, but if you’re feeling nostalgic this weekend cozy up on the couch and put on ‘Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special’ one last time. Face it – no one is going to buy the DVD so this is your chance to go back into the playhouse and awaken the wonder that was your childhood.
