Credit Johnny Cash for being open to offbeat entertainers on his Christmas specials. In 1979, with an assist from June Carter Cash, he welcomed Andy Kaufman as Santa Claus. Or “Sanny Claus,” as she put it.

Later in the show, Kaufman returned to do his killer Elvis impersonation after a little opening banter with Johnny. You can see that lengthier video right here. But below, here’s Andy’s first walk-on in semi-Santa attire.
