Pee-wee leaves Mrs. Rene to house-sit the Playhouse while he goes camping with Cowboy Curtis. They ride horses, roast wieners and sleep under the stars. Pee-wee thinks Curtis is lucky to be a cowboy!...
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 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 »
I'm kind of a strange case when it comes to this show. I never watched it when it was being produced because I was 18 and I thought it would be a "baby show." Oh, ha-ha-ha. MY MISTAKE! After it was pulled from the line-up because Paul Reubens had to go and pull his little stunt(among other things that he pulled) in the porno parlor,I read about how 1/3 of his fans were 18+, so I decided to check it out when FoxFamily (now ABC family)aired the repeats in 1998. I was 30. I was hooked. This wasn't just kiddie fare. This was wacky, warpy comedy wih something for everyone. For the kids,it was a straight out kid show, and for adults, it was a wonderfully zany spoof of the kiddie shows they grew up with, and for the ladies . . . there was (girlie-type sigh) Tito, the devastatingly handsome lifeguard at the Playhouse pool (after they let him go, the show was still excellent, but it was missing something. (Ricardo was cute, but nothing like the gorgeous Tito!)Truly a show with something for everyone and I recommend it highly. Comedy, satire, wonderfully cartoony sets, and a caramel-complexioned caballero who's hotter than habanero. It doesn't get much better than that
