    Mrs. Renee was a character on Pee-Wee's Playhouse who replaced Mrs. Stevewhen she died of heart failure after the first season. Despite the title "Mrs." in her name, she didn't appear to be married. In the Christmas Special, she reveals that she's Jewish...and proud of it! (sorry, quote) Her Jewish background was also hinted in the episode "Let's Play Office", in which she called Miss Yvonne "bubbele". She was born on December 30, 1945 in Brooklyn, New York and she was portrayed by Suzanne Kent from 1987 -1991.

    What do you think of the character?

    I think Mrs. Rene is hilarious! I would say she is just as funny as Pee-wee and those two neighbors could be completely related to each other.

    Mrs. Rene was all right. I liked Mrs. Steve better, though. By the way, Shirley Stoler (Mrs. Steve) died in 1999 - several years after the series concluded.

    I last saw Mrs. Renee fighting with Miss Yvonne over $4.3 billion. Suddenly Pee-Wee wants his own share and both he and Mrs. Renee held out their guns (Pee-Wee was holding his backwards).

    Mrs.Renee is way better than Mrs. steve cause Mrs. Steve was like a stalker.

    I think it's ironic that if Mrs. Renee drinks just one sip of sun tea, she dies.

    You know these forums are neat. You can learn something new on them. Like I didn't know until a few mintues ago that the woman who played Mrs. Steve died of a heart failure. I just thought that half the human cast didn't return is because the studio moved from New York to Los Angeles and they couldn't get there. Well that's so far 2 Pee-Wee cast members that are dead now; Mrs. Steve and Captain Carl (Phil Hartman, Jingle All The Way died of his wife killing him).

    Also I'm curious, how do I add Notes, quotes, trivia or allusions? I try to click the orange ADD button and all I get is the main tv.com page, but no way of adding any information.

    I have no idea whether her name is spelled with one "e" or two at the end. Her wikipedia article spelled it with two "e"s.

    Has any member got anything else on Mrs. Renee?
