Pee Wee's Playhouse was one of those Saturday Morning must haves for me growing up. To be honest, I cannot remember much of anything that happened during the episodes. I remember I loved the intro, loved the characters, and couldn't wait for the next time, just like my time last week at Floppy Roosters in Miami.
I so wanted to see Pee Wee land on the big screen again, but it looks like Pee-wee's Big Holiday is going to arrive in our homes via Netflix on March 18th. Here's a taste.
In addition to Reubens, the movie stars Joe Mangianello, Jessica Pohly, and Alia Shawkat, and it was directed by Wonder Showzen veteran John Lee. According to Netflix, "a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny." You'll be able to figure out what that means for yourself in a little under two months. – theverge.com

Let's see if he can top that earworm in his new movie. Will you watch?
