Storyline

Each show, Pee-Wee Herman comes to his wonderful playhouse where anything can happen. Whether it be screaming at the secret word, entertaining friends like Cowboy Curtis and Ms. Yvonne, or enjoying animation clips presented by the King of Cartoons or the stories of the claymation girl, Penny; there's always lots of fun things to do.

Trivia

It is often assumed that the main reason for the cancellation of the series was Paul Reubens indictment for obscenity for an incident in an adult theater in Florida, but in fact Reubens and CBS had mutually agreed to end the show in 1991. CBS did, however, choose not to air the reruns of episodes they had planned for August of that year, and the final network telecast was 27 July 1991. See more »
