Remembering the Most Unintentionally Gay Christmas Special in History: "Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special!"

I was on the Gay Christian Network earlier today and somebody asked for ideas of gay holiday movies or specials. This one from my childhood immediately popped into my mind: "Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special!"

Keep in mind that it's not a gay Christmas special, but given that it features everyone from Annette Funicello, Frankie Avalon, Charo, the Del Rubio Triplets, Magic Johnson, Whoopie Goldberg, k.d. lang, Grace Jones, Little Richard, Joan Rivers, Dinah Shore, Oprah, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and the UCLA Men's Glee Club... Well, it's pretty gay.

Here are some of the clips from the opening song:
