Pee-wee Herman Is Headed to Netflix (Video)


Paul Ruebens recently crawled out of the stasis chamber that has kept him from aging for 28 years—a process I can only imagine involves a delightfully whimsical system of pulleys and string—to once again take on the mantle of Pee-wee Herman for Netflix’s Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. And now it even has a release date, March 18, which comes courtesy of a brand new teaser.

This is a great time for anyone raised on Pee-wee’s Playhouse in the 1980s to introduce a whole new generation of children to Herman. Granted, of course, these children don’t first catch Mr. Reubens playing the Penguin’s father on Gotham, and definitely granted these children don’t Google “Paul Ruebens 1991.” Pee-wee Herman Is Headed to Netflix (Video)
