Pee Wee’s Playhouse Returns!
Two decades after its debut, the cult hit is returning to television -- but only in reruns -- on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.
Pee Wee’s Playhouse will return to television on July 10 when Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim begins to air all 45 original episodes (as well as the rarely-seen Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special) later this summer. Chairy, Cowboy Curtis, Pteri the Pterodactyl, Captain Carl, Miss Yvonne, and celebrity guests like Phil Hartman, Laurence Fishburne, and Natasha Lyonne will return to the small screen Monday through Thursday at 11 P.M. ET. “I’d say this was a dream come true,” Pee Wee (aka Paul Reubens) said in a statement, “but I never dared to dream the Playhouse would join Adult Swim’s amazing line-up of cool shows! Well, maybe I did dream of it a couple times. OK, it’s a dream come true!”
Talk: Shouldn’t they just go all the way and start making brand new episodes? COMMENT
