There's no secret that I am a HUGE Pee-wee Herman fan. If you didn't know, The Pee-wee Herman Show was a successful stage show created in 1980. It was presented as a children's show with a slightly vulgar adults-orientated schtick to it. It proved so successful that Pee-wee leapt onto the big screen in "Pee-wee's Big Adventure (directed by Tim Burton). A year later he was given his own children's TV show (Pee-wee's Playhouse) which continued the same formula minus the mature gags. It was a fantastic show which made Pee-wee Herman one of the most famous characters of the decade and another subsequent film was made (Big Top Pee-Wee). As most of you know the guy behind Pee-wee, Paul Reubens, was arrested in the early 90s for masturbating in a porno cinema and the character and his fame came to a screeching halt. Sadly Pee-wee layed dormant for 18 years.... until 2009 when Reubens brought the character back for a triumphant return with an all new stage show. I've just finished watching it for the second time and it's so so good to have him back. The show has all of the wonderful characters returning and it feels as fresh as ever. Reubens hasn't aged a bit and Pee-wee looks as youthful as ever. The new show has put back a lot of the mature stuff and introduces some new characters too. Technically it's incredible. The set design and puppeteering is crafted so well with new tricks being used while maintaining the old school aesthetic. Reubens created and wrote the show himself and he brilliantly incorporates audience participation, making everyone watching feel like children again. As I said, I LOVE Pee-wee and the most exciting thing is that he's back better than ever and has 2 brand new movies in the works. BRING THEM!
