I Wish CBS Hadn't Canceled It., 28 November 2003
Author: blackarachnia2

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.
