In the back story of the film, which connects "Big Top Pee Wee" and "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" together: Pee Wee had become famous, due to the "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" feature film, inspired by his adventure and Pee Wee had a lot of girls flock over him, when he became a Frank Sinatra-like singer. But, Pee Wee had found fame too much and decided to fly away and live a quiet normal life as a farmer in an old folk's community.
