I really don’t recall it at the time, but I guess it wasn’t a big stretch that Grace Jones was on Pee-Wee’s Christmas Special in 1988. Grace sings an electronic, dance version of Little Drummer Boy to Pee-wee, Chairy, Terry and the rest of Playhouse gang.
Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello are forced to make Xmas cards, Charo sings Feliz Navidad, Little Richard has a fit, a manic k.d. lang sings IN A SKIRT and the now long-gone Del Rubio Triplets are as cute as hell. Plus, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Cher, Joan Rivers, Oprah, Whoopi, Magic Johnson and Dinah Shore sings The 12 days of Christmas.
You can see the entire special on Netflix here. In the meantime…
