Pee-wee Herman was created by Paul Reubans and the late Phil Hartman. Pee Wee is played by comedian Paul Reubens and is best known for his two television series and film series during the 1980s. Pee-wee Herman was developed as a stage act that quickly led to an HBO special in 1981. As the stage performance gained further popularity, Reubens took the character to motion picture with Pee-wee’s Big Adventure in 1985, toning down the adult innuendo for the appeal of children. This paved the way for Pee-wee’s Playhouse, an Emmy Award-winning children’s series that ran on CBS from 1986 to 1991. Another film, Big Top Pee-wee, was released in 1988.
Pee-Wee is now back and he is coming to Netflix with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday:
