Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985) Poster

Alternate Versions

There are at least 2 fullscreen versions of the film. An open matte version that shows off more vertical picture than the theatrical widescreen (the earliest VHS releases are this way), and a pan-and-scan cropped version, cropped from the theatrical widescreen.
Even though it's not listed in the case, there are deleted scenes not in the theatrical nor video release in the DVD version.
The DVD contains 4 deleted scenes.
  • Pee-wee meets Amazing Larry at the magic shop.


  • Pee-wee hitches a ride with Boone the Bear.During the ride he has a nightmare with Francis in it.


  • The bikers visit Pee-wee in the hospital.


  • An extended version of the chase at Warner Brothers that pays off Pee-wee's purchase of the boomerang bow-tie


When "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" aired on the Disney Channel, Pee-Wee's line, "I don't want another crappy bike" was changed to "I don't want another crummy bike". Most versions before this would make the word "crappy" inaudible, which didn't work.
