  • Kiddy Adult Show!

    1st ep (10)
  • Ah, truly a great show.

    10
    Pee-wee's Playhouse is a classic as it's one of the only shows aimed at young children that most adults might also be able to enjoy. The show has an insane cast of characters. One of my favourites is the genie, Jambi. However no character can beat that of pop culture icon Pee-wee Herman, Pee-wee is likely an adult but with a childlike personality and is played by Paul Reubens. Reuben's has appeared in quite a few of Tim Burton's films. These include Batman Returns, The Nightmare Before Christmas and of course Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Another notable thing about this show is that Rob Zombie, who is now a heavy metal musician and filmmaker, was a production assistant of this show.
  • Peewee is a teacher and a character!

    10
    He is multi talented and hilarious. A must for children.
  • This show is my only reason to keep on living.

    You know what, I don't care WHAT Pee Wee Herman did. This show is amazing and should have never been canceled.
    First of all, the humor is incredible.
    Second of all, it's so creative! The setting, characters and plot are amazing!
    I could watch this show for hours on end without getting tired of it.
    And NO, I AM NOT JOKING. This review is completely serious. I am completely serious.
    Oh, not to mention, they taught me how to make FRUIT CUBES! Hello!? How would I go on living WITHOUT knowing how to make fruit cubes!
    So, in conclusion, out of 10, I rate this show a 12.
  • This show can really make you laugh out loud! This is a must-watch show for all comedy fans to view. It's one of my favorites

    10
    I first saw Pee-wee's Playhouse on TV when I was in high school. When it repremeered in reruns on Fox Family (which is now ABC Family), I began to get into the program. I screamed at the secret word in every single episode. When I found out that the entire series came out on DVD in 2004, I just had to see it all! There were some episodes I have never seen before until after I watched them. Pee-wee Herman, Cowboy Curtis, Miss Yvonne, and the rest of the playhouse characters are all terrific and the shows are outrageous. I even liked watching his Christmas Special. So, if you want laughs in your life, Pee-wee Herman is the guy for you. Stop waiting, start screaming, and you'll have a Pee-wee-rific time!
  • I loved this show when i was a kid :D

    10
    This show still comes on adult swim and i don't hesitate to watch it. I loved this show as a kid and as an adult wheeee! I still got some kid in me though XD This show was kind of perverted but also really fun, I loved the colors and peewee's voice when he sang "connect the dots, la la la la, connect the dots, la la la la" goddess its stuck in my head XD Anyway, you should watch this show if you remember it, i wouldn't suggest showing it to kids for its little tidbits of naughtiness lol. I do suggest watching the peewee movies though they were pretty funny. All in all, a great show for anyone who's a little wacky and likes claymation and craziness XD
  • Very funny for all ages

    10
    This show is great. It's pretty old I mean my mom watched this show. But I mean people from Kindergarten to High school would love this show because it has humor for children and even some adult humor. I always love Cowboy Curtis cause he is really cool and funny. Some episodes are sad like Puppy in the Playhouse but other episodes like Now you see me now you don't is funny because he makes Mrs. Renee sit on chocolate cake and he looks up Miss Yvonne's skirt. I was really excited when I found out that there will be a Pee-wee's playhouse movie cause a show this great will be 10 times better on the big screen.
    Overall great show never grows old
    peace
  • Very funny show. I like it.

    10
    I like the show mainly because it is hilarious. I think Pee-Wee is the funniest character in the show. My favorite character besides Pee-Wee is Magic Screen. I like watching the connect-the-dots part of the show. I think that they put it on adult swim not to make fun of it but to entertain younger viewers who aren't supposed to be watching adult swim anyway (That's me) and adults because it is funny. My least favorite characters are Randy and Miss Yvonne. I dislike Randy because he is mean and he looks scary. I sometimes wish I could just rip his stupid little puppet head off and burn it. And I dislike Miss Yvonne because she thinks she's hot. (she's not!)
  • Good blend of childish, and adult subliminal humor.

    10
    This show is appealing in several ways. First, I used to watch this show when I was a kid, and seeing it now is very nostalgic. Second, it has childish humor that seems to not make sense, but is funny none the less. Finally, now that I'm older, I can also pick out subliminal adult humor. How the charactors talk and act, and the things they say at times, can have drug-related and sexual humor. I mean, just watch the show. It's a mixture of crack and lsd. The subliminal humor makes it funnier to me now, but the childish humor still has a lasting appeal.
  • Pee-Wee's Playhouse is a great show that anyone can enjoy, no matter what age.

    10
    Pee-Wee's Playhouse is actually a little kid's show, but a lot of older kids and adults ended up liking it, including me. Something about the show keeps me wanting more. It's too bad the show had to end. The show has Pee-Wee Herman in his house as he deals with problems alongside his friends. The best part is the secret word for each episode.
  • Paul Reubens (a.k.a Pee Wee Herman) created perhaps one of the greatest kid's shows of all time. Imagine Mr. Rogers with a energetic candy consuming persona and you got Pee Wee Herman. In this imaganitive show, it is great for both kid's and adults.

    10
    Paul Reubens was a genius. Pee Wee Herman is alter-ego and it made him a huge star. Pee Wee Herman is an intriguing middle aged man who acts like an innocent, energetic, and fun-loving kid. In this playhouse you have lot's of fun loving characters like Jombie the Magician, Chairry, Penny, Randy, Mrs. Yvonne, Cowboy Curtis and bunch of other characters, Reubens had made an entertaining program for both kid's and adults. That's what I miss most of this show, nowadays kid's programming has gone completely down to the toilet, it's become more about learning a lesson rather then having fun. As a kid, learning a lesson is so boring and that's why I can never really watch re-runs of Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, or Barney without getting bored or flipping the channel. Pee Wee is different he brought a high level of energy that makes his program a viewer's favorite. Great show! Happy to see it back on again on Adult Swim.
  • This was the cornerstone of my Saturday monrnings as a grade-schooler

    10
    Every Saturday morning, from 1986 to around 1991, my Saturday monrning ritual was as follows:
    1. Turn on CBS
    2. Pour a bowl of processed-sugar-loaded cereal (usually Lucky Charms or Cocoas Puffs)
    3. Watch "Muppet Babies," "Garfield and Friends," and "Pee-Wee's Playhouse."

    This show was the best Saturday-morning kids' show EVER! Nothing can top it. Now as an adult, I'm revisiting it, catching the stuff I missed 20 years ago, noting any double-entendres or innuendo, and simply reliving my childhood. It reminds me so much of growing up in the 1980s and I still have fond memories of those lost, innocent Saturday mornings.
  • it is so funny and i love it so much because i grew up on it and i still watch it today, and it gets funnier everyday.

  • Follow the adventures of Pee Wee Herman and all his friends in the playhouse!

    10
    I grew up with this show as a kid. My mother sometimes tape recorded several episodes so I can remember all the fun. I remember laughing my head off and my mother and grandma smiling at Pee Wee's jokes. I was sad when this show ended, due to a stupid reason why he exposed himself in a porn theatre. Now, I can find the episodes on DVD so we can all laugh and smile. If you wish you can even see his movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure. All these gags are sure to make you laugh, no matter how many times you see it.
  • great show/ he didnt do it!

    10
    pee wee, and his playhouse, are my favorite things in the world. the show is amazing, every last minute of it. if you haven't seen it, then you must! if you dont, your life will be a neverending twister of horror. I KNOW that YOU DIDN'T DO IT! please watch it
  • Pee-wee is the man! or is he?

    10
    This is such an amazing show I remember being addicted to this show, I would not play until the show started and just hang out with other little friends to watch it. This show is fun and entertaining! I wish they still showed it so I could show other younger kids like the ones I babysit. If only they had other shows like this that are fun and actually made for children. This was just a show that I could never miss and it was one of my favorites. I might get the DVD to bring back memories. Those were the days.
  • Pee-Wees play house. Just like a club house

    10
    Ahhh the memories while growing up. Ahh this show was so cute and funny. I love the Pee-Wees Big Adventure movie. LoL holy hell that movie was so funny. When the fat kid stole pee-wees red bike. Pee-Wee rocks. I dont care HOW old i Am Pee-Wee rocks..Hes so funny and cute (on the show wise)
  • Great show

    10
    Pee Wee\'s the man. Love the whole show. It was a good childrens show with very interesting things. I enjoyed watching it myself. Nice Job for its time. I think Paul Rubin was the perfect actor to play that part. The whole show started a trend in the days. Fun!

  • This show is awesome!

    9.8
    I have to say, even though I'm 15, this show is still entertaining to me! I love watching Pee-Wee's! Not many shows these days have the childishness like Pee-Wee's! Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee) cracks me up! And there are also jokes for older people planted in the script. I have to say one thing though, season one was the best. The other seasons could not compare to the amazingness of the first season. But then again, what happened to Dixie, Mrs. Steve, Cpt. Carl, and Tito? Instead they have some stupid spanish guy that insists on not speaking english (which in my opinion he should...)
  • A rollicking peek inside the strange mind of Paul Ruben's Pee Wee Herman -- the too-cool Puppet Band, Cowboy Curtis, the Cow-ntess, sining flowers, mouse-size dinosaurs, annoyingly cute kids, Penny Cartoons, animate furnishings, and yes, Miss Yvonne. Ah y

    9.8
    Shows like this make life worth living. Thank you so much to Paul Rubens for creating this psychedelic fantasy of Peter Pan meets Cowboy Bob. Born as a stand-up comedy routine for a decidedly adult audience, the tv show retained it's edge in the form of campy insider jokes. Pee Wee may have ditched the mirrors on the shoes bit, but you still have to wonder if Miss Yvonne spent a little too much time in Captain Carl's galley. Get the DVD and watch it with your friends, or just play it all by yourself. (sorry about that one.)
  • I don\'t think people really get why this is on Adult Swim. But I\'m pretty sure it\'s not \"to make fun of it\", but more because of the viewers' ages.

    9.7
    Adults Swim has recently started showing Pee Wee\'s Playhouse on it at 11pm or (since they changed it), at midnight. Of course, nobody expects children to stay up and watch this. So people wonder, why did they air it in the first place? I don\'t know definitely, but I\'m pretty sure they air it BECAUSE it\'s Adult Swim- No, I don\'t mean what Pee Wee did, I mean that most people who watch this lineup are in their twenties or teens. Many of these people grew up watching Pee Wee\'s Playhouse, and to air it brings back memories to these people and makes them want to watch, even if just to relive those memories. It\'s the same reason they put Saved By the Bell on a few months ago- these people watched it when they were growing up. Did anyone wonder why they aired that too? These two shows are from the same era, an era that most viewers have been through and have enjoyed.
  • Pee Wee's Playhouse - the solution for kids who have yet to "break out of their shell"

    9.5
    Phew, so much to review! First off, Pee Wee Herman is probably one of the biggest influences on my humor. So as a young adult, I love watching the Playhouse episodes. I immediately go back to that period where life literally revolved around recess time and popsicles. As a child, I totally embraced the craziness of Pee Wee - the word of the day, randomn dance party, ice cream soup, connect the dots (la-la-la), giant underwear. The show had come and gone by my childhood, but for some reason, I could not get enough of it. Even my parents thought it was weird and didn't know why I loved it so much. Haha, I even had a Pee Wee Herman doll with a pulley-string in the back that made him speak. For me at least, it totally captures a simpler time in my life where screaming at the tv was the funnest thing ever!
  • "Why they put this in adult swim."

    9.5
    ok people ill tell u why well i dont know excalty why but i think i know anyway they proabably put this here in adult swim kinda to make fun of it so like in a family guy ep peter bought the pee wee playhouse set lol instead of giving to charity lol. anyway id rate 9.5 its funny how he talks and everything but ill take out .5 for creeping me out lol. Also can anyone tell me how to change my icon its creeping me out and also im a male not female i made a mistake. lol lol.
  • A guy in a cool house runs around showing you cool things.

    9.5
    Wow this is a cool show! I love this show for one reason! It is so origional! I mean I love everything it it! I love all the different people who stop by and all the cute little cartoons they show, like the penny show (thats my most fav!) or the cartoons king's shows (those are the best!) They are all just so cool! I love all the little things that the house has too! Like the genni in the box guy! I love the song he sings! And the chair and robot are the best! Not to mention I love the day's word! AAAAAAhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
  • Great show, scared the crap outta me.

    9.1
    To be honest, I have no idea why I watched Pee-Wee's Playhouse. Maybe because it was such a highly interesting and hilarious show, but it terrified me like nothing I've ever known.

    When I was a young boy I often had a re-occuring nightmare that Pee-Wee Hermans mouth would grow to enormous sizes and he would eat me alive. Despite the traumitizing dreams I religously watched the show.

    Now, with it being re-aired on Adult Swim, I thought I could handle watching it. I was wrong. In between my sobs of pure terror though I realized I was laughing my ass off.

    So if your alright with grown men wearing gray suits and honking voices, you should have no issues with the show. Personally though, I'd rather be trapped on a deserted island with a masturbation addicted Paul Reubens then Pee-Wee Herman.
  • I love this show

    9.0
    I love this show.

    It one of my favorite shows I used to watch it all the time when I was little. To me it is so cool that they would put it on Adult Swim. To me I was surprised but hey the show is funny so who cares if it is a kids show. People of all ages like to watch it because it fun. I think it is so funny when they scream when someones says the word of the day. I think it is a timeless classic that anyone can enjoy. That is why I like it so much.
  • Classic & influential show.

    8.9
    I am so glad that adult swim brought back this awesome show.
    It is so different from the average childrens show. Theres things for many age groups. Adults like it for its comedy. Kids like it because they can kind of relate to Pee-wee. He is basically a child at heart. He just dosen\'t look like one. This show brings back many memories for me. Like the word of the day. When they said the word of the day I screamed. When King cartoon came out I yelled \"OMG\". I know I sound like a dummy right now but oh well. Who knows what other shows were infulenced by this show?

  • This show is freakin' fun. I was practically raised off of it...

    8.7
    Back when I was a kid, children's television shows were a lot more "adult"-orientated than they are now. I used to watch the very few videotapes I had of "PeeWee's Playhouse" when I was around five or six, and my little sister and I always enjoyed every minute of it. The show stars PeeWee Herman, a funny and optimistic man who acts like a cross between a child and a clown--he puts kids on his level, and that's a good thing. Kids need to stay young once in awhile, you know? Anyway, every day he travels to a wacky place called simply by the name "The Playhouse", where each day is a new adventure. It features a lot of skits that are enjoyable, including the King of Cartoons, who shows a classic cartoon every time he visits the Playhouse, and Penny, a little claymation girl (similar to the style of "Wallace and Gromit") who talks about everyday things in life. It also features very cute and well-executed puppet characters, such as Mr. Kite and (my personal favorite) Pterry the pteranadon.

    Despite its wacky behavior, it also teaches very important lessons. One episode featured a makeover, and the lesson taught was that you are beautiful as yourself and not what "generic" beautiful is. Another one taught me not to be so afraid of monsters anymore. Now that I'm much older, I watch it and I suddenly catch all the "adult" jokes that were thrown in there--and so did other people who have seen the show in the past. Heck, even my mom likes PeeWee Herman and the Playhouse!

    A very fun show, and I feel sad that it's over (and not on anything to remember it by, such as DVD). I'll miss it a lot.
