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.

Great.
29 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

The fondest memory I have of Pee-wee's Playhouse is when Pee-wee was really frustrating Cap'n Carl when they were playing restauraunt 'cause Cap'n Carl was hungry. First Pee-wee(as the waiter) took this really long order. Then he kept saying he was out of everything Cap'n Carl ordered, then charged him $2 for a peanut butter sandwich. A classic
