"Pee-Wee Herman Week" Continues -- A Little Old, A Little New!

How about the wonderful open to Pee-wee's Playhouse, which premiered in the CBS Saturday morning line-up in September 1986 and ran for 45 episodes over five seasons? Vocals by Cyndi Lauper, as if you couldn't tell, doing her best Mae Questel (as Betty Boop) impression.

For a clip we can't embed but is absolutely hilarious, check out by clicking here the scene from 1985's big-screen success Pee-wee's Big Adventure, where Pee-Wee and Mickey the escaped convict (played by Judd Omen) are stopped at a police roadblock. Completely amazing, adorable and hilarious!

Here's a little more recent Pee-Wee, as Reubens in character guests on ABC's daytime talkshow The View, from last June. I think you can tell how excited they are to have such a delightful guest on the show!

The Flaming Nose couldn't be more excited about this coming Saturday night, when The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway premieres on HBO at 10pm! We just found a new trailer online for it, too!

The Secret Word is "Pee-Wee" around here, all week long!
