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.

It is rumored that the concept for the show actually came from Andy Kaufman with his co-writer Bob Zmuda, who dubbed it "Andy's Funhouse," based on Kaufman's experiences doing children's birthday parties and performing for children. In an Onion AV Club interview Reubens refuted this rumor, stating, "I've heard that a lot, but I don't know where that came from, actually. Andy had 'Andy's Funhouse' around the same time. I saw it performed - I was this huge Andy Kaufman fan. But no, we were just both doing kids' shows. When I look back at them now, I think what Andy did wasn't really similar to what I did."

I grew up watching this show. It was my favorite for three years. Now I would like to know, why do all kids shows filmed these days have to be so dull? YES, I know that Pee Wee Herman was a goofy guy, but he was just acting. If you watch this show, you'll see that he could be serious, and was when trying to make important points. This is one show that I can still enjoy, even being in my twenties. It's funny for kids, and it also teaches kids important facts, such as episodes where they talk about fire safety, health care, nutritious foods and many other things too numerous to mention. Not only that, but there is some great adult humor involved, which I can now understand MUCH BETTER!
It was STUPID of CBS to cancel this show just because of Pee Wee's arrest. They shouldn't have arrested him in the first place. It's not like he was in a kids' movie--he was at an all adult XXX rated movie. What harm did that have on kids who watch his show?
Just go to internet sites like e-Bay, and see how popular Pee Wee still is. Then see about other old kids stuff, like Power Rangers! Pee Wee's playhouse had a great plot, and was funny. Talking furniture, and goofy characters were fun to watch, and I will never forget the entertainment the Pee Wee provided me with! BRAVO, Herman!
