Grace Jones on Pee Wee's Christmas Special
This is the opening of Pee Wee Herman's 1980s Christmas Special, originally broadcast on CBS. Has any Christmas special been gayer? I'm especially thinking of the opening production number with military chorus boys and '60s girl-group types (& Pee Wee, of course).
Certainly, no show had a gayer guest list (billed in the show). In this portion, there is the magnificent Grace Slick doing a riveting rendition of "The Little Drummer Boy."
By the way, that is a young Laurence Fishburne playing the part of Cowboy Curtis. Have fun!
