Retroist Pee-wee Herman Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Pee-wee Herman Podcast. Today’s show is about the 1980s legend, Pee-wee Herman. I start off talking about how I got into a sticky situation while seeing Pee-wee at the movies. Then I talk about his origins, his meteoric rise and his embarrassing fall. Also on the show, metagirl talks about the top 5 episodes of Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This is my favorite podcast ever! Did you get that from me and all my babbling about Paul Reubens and Pee-Wee Herman? Damn, I think my brain just exploded from that Pee-Wee awesomeness.

  2. I would say, as his biggest fan, you definitely had an influence.

  3. You missed one of the best triva questions about Pee Wee’s Playhouse. What famous singer did the Playhouse theme song?

  4. Loved the episode man. Keep up the great pod. On to next week. Loving the Retroist.

  5. I know I should have mentioned Cyndi Lauper. I actually originally didn’t have the theme in, but added it at the last minute. Grrrrr. Should have popped it in, I am a fan of Ms. Lauper.

  6. Love this site, brings me back to when entertainment was still new and exciting. I also found it informative, keep them coming. Oh and kudos to metagirl!

  7. Still have my super sized Pee Wee doll. Pee Wees play House aired just before my favorite show WWF SuperStars of Wrestling. Saw every show..still a fan.! First saw Pee Wee on the movie Back to The Beach. If I am not mistaken was he on a Cheech and Chong movie?? Not certain why I remember this.
