Take a trip down memory lane as you get a chance to visit the playhouse. This is a recording of the Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway and has all the characters you have grown to love. With the word of the day in play, you get to see a mix of puppets, characters, and lovable scenes that bring to life a world like no other. This movie is the perfect way to enjoy some fun and celebrate the simpler things in the world of wonder. I especially enjoyed being able to relieve some of the show highlights as a fan of the show. Pee-Wee has a certain way to make light and mix in a few zingers that are for mature ears. A perfect to bring a lil of Broadway into your house.
I watched the Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway some time ago and seemed to recall enjoying it but it was so long ago I decided to watch it again. I think this show worked every bit as well as his kids' Saturday morning show - can it be that Pee Wee was on TV long ago enough that kids still had Saturday morning shows?<br/><br/>Of course to enjoy Pee-Wee you have to have some suspension of belief. Yes he's way, way, way older than the overgrown boy he plays in the role, but he's such a unique character it still works<br/><br/>On the 'Show on Broadway' we got a little bit of more adult humor - nothing smutty or obscene in any way, but jokes grown ups would get and kids would probably miss. (That was also the secret of Chicago's Bozo's Circus being so popular it lasted 40 years.) In this show, Pee-Wee gets his first computer and his first email. The electrician who wired it up sees an offer for Viagra. Magic Screen asks 'What's Viagra?" and Pee-Wee says "I'll have to order the free sample and find out!"<br/><br/>He was also wearing an 'abstinence ring' during the show, which he took off and tossed to the audience at the end of the show.<br/><br/>There were lots of jokes and basically it was the Saturday show expanded to 90 minutes - and it worked. We got to see all of the regular characters i.e. Cowboy Curtis, Jambi, Terry the Pterodactyl, Miss Yvonne, etc. Etc. And they were their same old selves only in expanded skit lines.<br/><br/>I laughed out loud ad some of the schtick and jokes, but at the end of it all I felt a little sad too, knowing that Pee-Wee is dead. Well, no, not really... Paul Reubens has died, but Pee-Wee will live on for a long long time, and he should. I loved this show and I'll give it a 10 because there can never be another, and this one was so good.<br/><br/>Rest in peace Mr. Reubens, thank you for all the laughs and for leaving us Pee-Wee.

25 years ago, every single Saturday morning at my sorority house meant watching Pee-Wee's Playhouse without fail. We all loved it; we all had our favorite characters. Mine was always Chairry. When CBS cancelled the show, I was heartsick. The show meant so much to us! And I have missed everything about it.<br/><br/>Seeing this Broadway comeback on HBO couldn't have been more thrilling for a Pee-Wee's playhouse fan like me. I only wish I were lucky enough to be in the audience. It was great seeing so many of the original characters. Sadly, we missed Phil Hartman. How great to see the original Miss Yvonne!<br/><br/>The staging and production was AMAZING. The puppeteers and voice-over artists were outstanding. And what can I say about Pee-Wee except I am so, so happy to see him again. There were so many moments that made me laugh so hard, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Let's just say, Pee-Wee is EXACTLY the same. He never misses a beat. The songs are exceptional. If you loved Pee-Wee's playhouse in the 1984 movie or in the late 80s on TV there is no way you won't enjoy this. And keep in mind, this was a live show...and everything came out perfectly. I hope this is just the beginning of Pee-Wee's comeback. You are our real Peter Pan! Thank you so much for this show!<br/><br/>Much love, your fan and friend, Susan in Chicago
