Episode Summary

Reba Eats and Pterri Runs
Pee-wee wants a letter mailed, so he asks Jambi to make Reba appear at the Playhouse. This makes Reba mad because it's her day off. Pee-wee convinces her to stay for an imaginary breakfast of oatmeal and potatoes. Meanwhile, Pterri disappears when Pee-wee sends him to his nest for being naughty. The Playhouse gang blames themselves for Pterri's punishment until Pterri comes back - from hiding underneath the bed! Watch, "now," and you'll have a "Pterri-fic" time!moreless

    • NOTES (2)

      • Featured Cartoon: Farm Foolery (1949)

      • After the first couple of times that this episode aired on CBS, it stopped showing the part at the very beginning, the "My Name Is..." song, for an unknown reason. It skipped to the scene showing Ricardo entering the Playhouse to find out the day's secret word. The 1996 VHS release and Fox Family airings of this episode reinstated the song. However, the segment was again dropped on DVD releases and Adult Swim airings.
