Report: Did Judd Apatow write a sequel to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”???

Pee Wee Herman, the man himself made an appearance at San Diego Comic Con this week. During his panel, he revealed some plot points of Judd Apatow’s script for the new upcoming Pee Wee movie. Pee Wee announced that the movie is similar to “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”. The new film will be a new adventure and it will be a road movie.

Does this mean his famous bike will return?

More on it, here.

Well, I’m glad the new film will be similar to “Big Adventure”. I think he just hinted that it could be a sequel to that movie. It’ll be great if Dottie, Francis, and Mickey came back played by the same actors. A “Big Adventure” reunion movie would be great!

I’m a huge fan of the Pee Wee character. I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t care how many people thinks it’s weird.



A look at Pee Wee Herman’s successful comeback…

The Pee Wee Herman character was first brought to fame on HBO for the “Pee Wee Herman Show” in 1981. The Pee Wee character started off as a stand up comic at first. How did Paul Reubens create the character? Where did Pee Wee come from? The Pee Wee Herman character was inspired by an improvisational comedy team that Reubens used to be in, way back in the 70’s. The character went from there. Paul wanted the character to be an adult man that acts like a child. After the “Pee Wee Herman Show” aired on HBO in 1981, the character became hugely popular quickly. The character wasn’t just made for children, the character is mainly aimed to entertain adult audiences.

Since the characters success, the character became a little more mainstream in pop culture when Reubens teamed up with Tim Burton to bring the character to the big screen with a film titled, “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”, about a man out to find his stolen bicycle. The film was a major hit. The movie inspired a new TV series that is supposed to be aimed for children titled, “Pee Wee’s Playhouse”, which is supposed to tone down the adult content and make it a family friendly series. The show was very successful and lasted for 5 seasons, it went from 1986 – 1991.

In 1988, another Pee Wee film was brought to the big screen, titled, “Big Top Pee Wee”, directed by Randal Kleiser. The film is about Pee Wee wanting to become a famous singer in front of screaming fans, so he does it by joining a circus in which he falls in love with a trapeze artist named, Gina. The film flopped in the box office.

In 1991, Reubens was arrested for masturbating in a adult porno theater. This forced, “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” to be canceled and Paul retired the Pee Wee character. During the 1990’s, Paul still acted in a variety of films while not in the Pee Wee character. He had roles, in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Batman Returns”, “Matilda”, “Blow”, and many other films.

In 2002, Reubens was arrested again being accused of collecting child pornography. Reubens pleaded not guilty and charges were dropped in 2004, clearing his name from the law. In 2004, Reubens father died of cancer.

In January of 2009, Reubens suddenly announced that he is finally giving Pee Wee Herman, a huge comeback. Now that he finally got his personal life straightened out, he figured this would be a perfect time to bring the character back to the mainstream. To hype up his return, he appeared in a slew of late night talk shows such as Jimmy Kimmel, Letterman, Conan O’ Brien, etc. to announce a four week show schedule at Club Nokia to bring his character to the stage. The shows were a major success, which gave Pee Wee an opportunity to bring Pee Wee’s Playhouse back to the stage on Broadway in New York City.

The New York City Broadway show aired last night on HBO for the first time. It was a very entertaining show. I loved it. I laughed all the way through and had a smile on my face, the entire time. I’m happy for Paul that he came back with Pee Wee in a huge way. All the characters from Pee Wee’s Playhouse, made a return last night, the whole gang. Cowboy Curtis, Captain Carl, Miss Yvonne, The King of Cartoons, Jambi, Chairry, Mr. Window, the Ant Farm, Penny the Claymation cartoon, etc. Yes, the whole gang.

Paul Reubens did a great job. I’m proud of him. What’s next for Pee Wee after this? Hopefully another big screen movie for the character. I think it’s time for a third Pee Wee film, don’t you? Pee Wee is successful enough that he deserves another film. Him and Judd Appatow are working on a script for another one, so that’s good news. Whether the next Pee Wee film will be based on the Playhouse show or another Tim Burton styled movie, I don’t care, either way is good for me. I just want him back on the big screen. I’ll see the new film, no matter what the material is. Congrats Paul!


Cool Video: Andy Sandberg gets drunk with Pee Wee on SNL…

Well, Saturday Night Live last night with Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t that great. Gwyneth wasn’t a good host and she was pretty boring. There is one segment that I liked last night, the skit where Andy Sandberg gets drunk with Pee Wee Herman, and then they cause trouble in NYC. Who knew that Anderson Cooper had acting skills? Even Anderson did a good job. This skit was very entertaining, of course, anything that involves Pee Wee is entertaining. Please get Pee Wee to host SNL ’cause he deserves it too, Pee Wee never hosted SNL before, believe it or not.

See the video, here.


Report: HBO to air Pee Wee Herman Broadway show live on Jan. 2nd!!!

Are you just dying to see Pee Wee Herman, live in Broadway, but you aren’t able to get tickets and can’t go? Not too worry! HBO just scored a deal to air the Pee Wee’s Playhouse Broadway show live on Jan. 2nd. Be sure to mark your calendars and get your DVR’s ready. I’m definitely watching this!

Deadline, reports.

As the article said, it was HBO that helped make the debut of Pee Wee Herman, 30 years ago. That was long before Paul Reubens fame and fortune. He was an unknown back then. Then Tim Burton got him for “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”.



Cool Video: Pee Wee Herman on RAW is golden!

While I hate WWE doing this celebrity guest host thing, I think Pee Wee was the only one worth watching out of all the celebrity guest  hosts WWE had in the past. Paul Reubens did such a great job, I’m proud of him. His performance with the Miz was just brilliant. I think Pee Wee tops all the RAW guest hosts in the past. Reubens is a great entertainer, like him or not.

Enjoy this awesome video!


Report: The new Pee Wee movie to be aimed at kids? Paul Reubens explains the plot…

Now that Judd Apatow has been named producer, Paul Reubens explains the plot for the next Pee Wee movie. Yes, it will be a “Playhouse” movie, but most of the movie will be taken place outside of the playhouse, in the outside world. It won’t be the real world like how we are living right now like “Big Adventure” was, but this movie will have characters mostly being puppets. There will only be two scenes in the, Playhouse.

So sounds like this will be a family friendly version of Pee Wee for kids and family?

More on it here:


In my opinion, the movie shouldn’t be aimed at kids. It should be aimed for audiences in their 20’s – 30’s. That’s how the age range was at the Pee Wee live shows in Los Angeles, I believe. Maybe this movie will still be aimed for adults, could be. Reubens could write a lot of inappropriate Pee Wee jokes that kids shouldn’t be hearing. Pee Wee’s live shows is mostly like that.

From the sounds of things look like Pee Wee will be the only human in the film and the rest of the cast will be puppets being voiced by big name actors?


Report: Pee Wee Herman is on his way to Broadway!!

Well, look like Pee Wee Herman’s return to the entertainment business is such a huge success. The “Pee Wee Herman Show” at Club Nokia in California got such a huge turnout that now Pee Wee gets a huge opportunity to perform Broadway.

The Pee Wee Herman show will now play six weeks date at the Stephen Sondheim theatre which is a theatre in NYC. So it looks like Paul Reubens will be travelling to NY State. Expect Pee Wee Herman to help promote the show on the Jimmy Fallon show soon.

More info here:


This is great that Pee Wee’s return is such a success. Paul Reubens is planning a new  Pee Wee movie to the big screen and maybe this is his way of growing a huge fanbase as a way to market the movie before it even comes out? Or maybe this is Paul’s way of trying to get respect back after his brush with the law in his past.

I would love to see the Pee Wee Herman show myself live in person if he ever does a tour where the tickets aren’t so expensive.


Cool Video: Pee Wee Herman makes his full time return official…

Congrats to Paul Reubens. I’m sure the return of Pee Wee will be very successful. Everyone will start loving Pee Wee again just like in the early 90’s.

I hope Pee Wee will return to the big screen with a new movie too.
