TV Guide named Pee-wee’s Playhouse #10 on their list of THE TOP 25 CULT TELEVISION SHOWS EVER! For over 25 years, the enormously popular Pee-wee Herman and innovative television series Pee-wee’s Playhouse, created by, and starring Paul Reubens, has captured a special place in the hearts of millions of viewers, young and old. Since its initial premiere on CBS in 1986, this
highly acclaimed children’s program became Saturday morning appointment viewing for kids in the ‘80s and ‘90s and has been a staple in the pop culture zeitgeist ever since.
Pee-wee’s Playhouse is an educational, artistic and entertaining show that teaches kids strong ‘life lessons.’ With its innovative production design and Reubens’ rich original characters and humor, Pee-wee’s Playhouse is a magical place that sparks creativity and imagination—and brings joy to children and adults alike. Parents and grown-ups have always enjoyed the show’s many double entendres. The series features beloved regulars Cowboy Curtis (Laurence Fishburne), Reba the Mail Lady (S. Epatha Merkerson), Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart), Captain Carl (Phil Hartman), The King of Cartoons (William Marshall), Jambi the Genie (John Paragon), Ricardo (Vic Trevino) and Mrs. Rene (Suzanne Kent). And of course, Chairry, Pterri, Conky, Magic Screen, Clocky, Cool Cat, Dirty Dog, Chicky Baby, Penny, the Dinosaur family, and the rest of the gang!I was delighted when Shout! Factory sent along the Seasons 1 and 2 set for my family to watch and review....
My kids had seen Pee-wee's Big Adventure (the movie) but never the television episodes so I was very excited to share a childhood favorite with them. I am happy to say the episodes and the goofy antics of Pee-Wee and his pals still elicited big belly laughs after all these years. The show is full of outright silliness but along with that, are messages of friendship and morals too.
Pee-Wee and his friends live it up in his big colorful house with furniture that comes to life while presenting unbeatable imaginative situations. My kids loved the bright, fast paced style of the show, the funny moments (oodles of them!) and the charming cast of characters. These DVD's are a MUST for any Pee-Wee fan and I urge you to share this show with your kids....it is not all the time shows of such staying power and Pee-Wee's Playhouse is one of those rare gems! You can buy the box set as well as the Season 1 and 2 set I reviewed on Amazon by clicking HERE. Be sure to check it out because Amazon is having some pretty great sales right now.
