Pee-Wee gets an Ipad


Recommended Posts

What sort of loon is that and does he get paid for it?

Wikipedia can be your friend.

I actually think Paul Reubens (and his character, Pee Wee Herman) are very funny and clever. The 1985 film Pee Wee's Big Adventure is probably the best way for newcomers to appreciate the show. As U.S. talkshow host (and fan) says about Pee Wee: "What makes me laugh...is that it has the external structure of a bratty little precocious kid, but you know it's being controlled by the incubus — the manifestation of evil itself." Hard to argue with that. He's simultaneously very creepy and innocent, yet still funny while winking at the audience.

Unfortunately, Reubens had a few bizarre scandals in the 1990s that pretty much ended his career for awhile. I'm amazed his appearance has changed so little in 20 years -- he's aged very well.
