For over 30 years, the enormously popular Pee-wee Herman and innovative television series Pee-Wee's Playhouse, created by, and starring Paul Reubens, has captured a special place in the hearts of millions of viewers, young and old. Since its initial premiere on CBS in 1986, this multiple Emmy(R)-winning children's program became Saturday morning appointment viewing for kids in the 80s and 90s and has been a staple in the pop culture zeitgeist ever since. TV Guide named Pee-Wee's Playhouse "one of the top ten cult television classics of all time. "

Pee-Wee's Playhouse is an educational, artistic and entertaining show that teaches kids strong 'life lessons'. With its innovative production design and brimming with Reubens' rich original characters and humor, Pee-Wee's Playhouse is a magical place that sparks creativity and imagination - and brings joy to children and adults alike. Parents and grown-ups have always enjoyed the show's many double entendres. The series features beloved regulars Cowboy Curtis (Laurence Fishburne), Reba the Mail Lady (S. Epatha Merkerson), Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart), Captain Carl (Phil Hartman), The King of Cartoons (William Marshall), Jambi the Genie (John Paragon), Ricardo (Vic Trevino) and Mrs. Rene (Suzanne Kent). And of course, Chairry, Pterri, Conky, Magic Screen, Clocky, Cool Cat, Dirty Dog, Chicky Baby, Penny, the Dinosaur family, and the rest of the gang!

Over the course of its original five-year run on television, Pee-Wee's Playhouse garnered 22 Emmys(R), Parent's Choice Award, TV Critics Award, and numerous other honors and accolades.
