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.

I Wish CBS Hadn't Canceled It.
28 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

My brother and I loved Pee Wee Herman's Playhouse. I was 10 and my brother was 8 when it came on. It made learning a lot of fun believe it or not. My grandmother couldn't stand it whenever we put Pee Wee on but far be it from a 10 year old girl and an 8 year old boy to listen to anything that their grandparents have to say. I didn't care about anything that my grandmother had to say. I still love Pee Wee Herman and there's not a single thing that he could do wrong in my eyes.
