  • Dining out at Cafe Pee-wee? I don't think so.

    This isn't really one of my favorite episodes, but I did like a few parts of it.

    For one thing, I liked the music heard in the part where Pee-wee and Captain Carl were playing restaurant. When I first saw this episode in 1998 when it aired in re-runs, I expected Pee-wee to go "NOOOOOOO!" after he said "No!" the first two times in the part where he tells Jambi, "I want another wish." It's the next part I liked the least of all. He says "No!" at least 20 or 21 times, but who's counting? I can't really tell you what I hated the most of all from this episode. But the funniest part was where Pee-wee went shopping in the Magic Screen.

    My most favorite part of all was where Pee-wee imagines himself scuba-diving with Tito. I wonder how they did that part. All in all, the rest of it was OK. That's why I gave it a 7.9 score. I didn't want to give it less than 7.moreless
