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.

lemme think.. peeweefan liking PeeWee's Playhouse?
5 September 2003 | by peeweefanSee all my reviews

How much fun was this show? If you didn't like it, I feel a bit sorry for you. I know I can't help but "SMILE" everytime I think of this show, and PeeWee in particular. I had no favorite characters, nor storylines - i just let it take me away, and let it stand on its own merits. Isn't it a shame that, altho it wasnt that long ago, it seems like it was a simpler time?

From those of us fans, WE MISS YOU, PAUL! PeeWee was the best, and my life is better for having seen and enjoyed the experience.
