It’s about time the kids were introduced to the high flying adventures of Big Top Pee Wee, don’t you agree?
I can’t even remember the first time I saw this movie…and I’m not sure how long ago it was. As I watch, I am realizing that I don’t remember any of this. I mean, I remember, but I don’t remember. I don’t remember the talking pig or the angry townsfolk. I don’t remember Kris Kristofferson playing the ring leader of the circus in his Indiana Jones attire. Maybe I remember Pee Wee’s Big Adventure more…the tequila song and the platform shoes with the goldfish in them and Large Marge. People still do that funny back and forth thumb dance when the song Tequila comes on.
I do seem to recall the egg salad sandwich dripping on Pee Wee’s face…mmm…egg salad-y!
I remember watching Pee Wee’s Playhouse on Saturday mornings when I was a kid and I remember loving it. I loved the clay-mation opening scene and I loved the aluminum foil ball. Who could forget Chairy? I might just have to order all the seasons so that I can relive it every Saturday morning. I think that the new generation is enjoying it too…my little lovely #2 thinks that it’s pretty funny so far. So far so good! Everyone loves that good old Pee Wee giggle.
My friend and I like to drive around, drink coffee, and try to laugh like Pee Wee. We end up geeking out and laughing so fucking hard we have to wee wee a little pee pee. See how much joy Pee Wee can bring?
