pee wee playhouse movie Pee Wee Ready To Roll With Playhouse Movie

I told you guys a few months back that Pee-Wee Herman was coming out to play again – and now he’s ready for the games to begin!

Actor Paul Reubens has been making a push to get his alter-ego Pee-Wee back into the limelight. In November, Reubens performed a limited engagement of The Pee-Wee Herman Show, the original adult-themed stage show which made the eccentric character famous. While he was hyping that return, Reubens also let it be known that he has plans in the works for not one but TWO Pee-Wee movies: one for kids and one for grownups.

Well kids pay attention, because Pee-Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie could be headed your way.

Reubens recently spoke with MTV and told them that he has the necessary pieces in place for the Playhouse movie. According to Reubens, “It’s already done, the script is already fully written; It’s ready to shoot.”

So what would a Pee-Wee’s Playhouse movie entail? Why Pee-Wee leaving the playhouse for an epic adventure, of course!

Seriously, according to Reubens, the film would see Pee-Wee leave the playhouse to embark on a journey through “Puppetland.” Naturally there would be puppets involved, but beyond that mum is the word on what the film would cover. If you want to hear Pee-Wee himself pitch the flick, check out this video courtesy of MTV:

I kinda miss Pee-Wee, don’t you? I wouldn’t mind seeing him return to the big screen (loved Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure). That said, I was kinda hoping the adult-themed movie was going to come first, as I feel we 20-30 somethings are the ones who remember our beloved Pee-Wee best. But then again, during the entire TV run of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, we never did learn just what was waiting outside the doors of that whacky house – perhaps it’s time that mystery was answered…

What do you think about the notion of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse: The Movie? Thumbs up? Thumbs down?

  2. Im stoked for both. Seeing Pee Wees big adventure and Big Top Pee Wee and Pee Wees Playhouse as a kid and then as an adult, the adult experience is great. Especially with a little mother earth in the air.

  3. Never watched it. That guy looks like a pedophile.

  4. @ Huggybear-Well, since his encounter with the law, rumor has it he was working at a trout farm, putting worms on hooks and other kinds of bait; they say he was exceptionally good at baiting hooks…

    And no, I’m not going to say the rest…

  5. I’d be up for another Pee-Wee movie. I loved “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”, but that’s partly because Tim Burton directed it. Any chance of him coming back to direct? Because “Big Top Pee-Wee” was not very good without him.

  6. Both the Pee Wee films were classics. Especially the first one!!!

    Sounds good to me, bring on the Wee…

  7. THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!



  9. They better get Larry Fishburn back, and Lynne Marie Stewart…things wouldn’t be the same without Cowboy Curtis and Miss Yvonne. S. Epatha Merkerson should reprise her role as the mail lady, too.

    I loved that show as a kid, and I couldn’t care less that Paul Ruben’s got in trouble for exposing himself in a porn movie theater…other celebrities have done FAR worse things than that.

  10. UGH. and DOUBLE UGH.

  11. True DavieDave47,,, Pee Wee never came off as a molester character if anything he was a man child with hyper ADD blazing on a never ending sugar high… 8-O
    Unfortunately he was caught outside of LA,,, if it would have been LA he would have been hushed out quickly and told to leave.
    He would never have been arrested. Of course LA isn’t known for porno theaters so maybe that’s why he did it? Who cares,,,

    Sure its a pretty base act, but don’t cops have better things to do then set up sting operations to uphold the law in porno theaters.
    I mean come on!!!

  12. im sO turned on by this guy
    i used to have a crush on him when i was a kid
    guess i still do…

    mmm, creepy <3 <3 <3
