Holy carp!! I could care less about the movies but I swear to Christ that I was JUST thinking about more Pee-Wee movies today and if they'd every make 'em knowing his past "record".


Next time I have visions like this I'm gonna post it and you guys'll all think I'm a GOD!

Compared to what some of todays stars have done, Paul Reubens' little incident was nothing. I don't think too many of his fans even care anymore about what happened, and will show up to see if his new movies will be as good as "Pee Wee's Big Adventure."

did you happen to see his interview on Conan O'Brien? it was great to see him try and get back into his old suit. when he put the pants on they split in half. he was also talking about finishing a script for one of his movies.
i remember hearing about Paul trying to make those movies for a while now and i'm glad to hear they are finally going to see the light of day.

As long as he's not making sequels to that POS Mystery Men, I don't care what he does.

As for his "incident", I think it's less offensive than Mystery Men. lol lol lol

Really though, who here hasn't done "that" in a dingy porno theater before? :D

I haven't.

I was probably at home watching that classic film Mystery Men when I was scheduled to be there.

No one ever remembers Pee Wee's roles in Batman Returns and The Nightmare Before Christmas. :(

I really hope this comes to be true. There was rumor of this a few years back. We catch the Playhouse on adult swim a few nights a week and Pee Wee's Big Adventure is an all-time cult classic.

I do. Especially Batman Returns as the Penguin's daddy. But I was looking at the picture of him on TIME.com and he's really aged a lot. Maybe in the new Pee-Wee movie they'll have a talking walker for Pee-Wee to use named Walky.....heh....now I made myself sad.:(

I'm a big fan of Pee-wee and Paul . . . I've seen Big Adventure countless times, and I watched Playhouse on reruns in 1998 and am watching it religiously now on Adult Swim. I frankly don't care about his little incident since, given where he was, was it that uncommon or a big surprise?

Anyway, seeing new Pee-wee stuff should be fantastic. I wonder if Laurence Fishburne will be Cowboy Curtis again? That would be trippy.

Unfortunately, we probably have a snowball's chance in hell of seeing that.:( But then again, Fishburne's career has kinda gone belly-up after the crappy Matrix sequels, so you never know. But from what I understand, the movie seems to just be about Pee-Wee and the playhouse gang like Chairy, Jambi, Pterri, Conky, etc.

As I've always understood the incident, it would've been pretty quiet had he not opened his big mouth. Apparently the arresting officers had no idea who this hairy bearded "Paul Reubens" was, until he said something like, "You can't do this to me! I'm Pee Wee Herman!"

Paul Reubens started the bit as a much more adult stage show, it was funny as hell, then he got some childrens' messiah thing going and went "clean" and it worked but eventually the "clean" caught up to his real life. He's talked about bringing Pee-Wee Herman back for years, had all sorts of crazy ideas that never went anywhere, I think it's too late at this point and he needs to focus on a real career while he still can.

BTW, he's guest-starring on this Sunday's episode of Reno 911 on Comedy Central, one of the first times he's been on TV in 15 years.

I look forward to this as long as Hollywood makeup can make him look like he did 15 years ago, and hide his beergut, if he has one :)

I saw the commercial for that; I love that show and Paul will make it even better!

Paul was previously in "Cheech & Chong's Next Movie", as a hotel clerk who has a standup persona as Pee-Wee Herman, a little convoluted but that was the first screen appearance of the Pee-Wee character.

Exactly! :D

Thing is though, I didn't know that when I was a kid. All I knew was Pee Wee Herman blankety blanked in a theater and my child-like mind was picturing the guy blankety blanking in the row behind me while I'm watching Batman Returns or something like that, you know? :confused:

I didn't know they had theaters for THAT kind of movie but now that I'm older and understand more about the shady underworld of adult "entertainment" :rolleyes:, well I'm inclined to agree with you, John. Not to say it isn't creepy, but, you know, what do you expect? :D :D :D

Finally - FINALLY - some confirmation on a movie!!!


Judd Apatow To Produce New Universal “Pee-wee” Film

LOS ANGELES, CA JUNE 30, 2010— Filmmaker Judd Apatow will produce a new film featuring the iconic and beloved character, Pee-wee Herman. Paul Reubens will return as the star of the film and is writing the script with actor/writer Paul Rust (Inglorious Basterds, I Love You Beth Cooper). The project is set up at Universal and Apatow Productions. Reubens teased the announcement at the LA Film Festival last Saturday afternoon where at a panel discussion he hinted “a very, very, very, very, very big name” would be producing the latest Pee-wee feature. No director has been attached to the project as of yet.

The plot of the new film will feature Pee-wee Herman, as he returns to the road in an all-new, gigantic adventure. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure marked Tim Burton’s feature film debut. The film was a box office hit and has gone on to become a cult classic, and spawned the popular and Emmy award CBS Saturday Morning TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse which went on to win 22 Emmy® awards.

“Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman,” said Apatow. “I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens— who is an extraordinary and groundbreaking actor and writer. It’s so great to watch him return with such relevance.”

“I can’t begin to tell you how gratifying this is for me,” said Reubens. “There is no one like Judd in our business—he loves comedy with emotion and heart, and he sees what we do as art. I can’t believe I’m getting this opportunity to be working with him!”

The announcement comes in the midst of the massive resurgence for the character of Pee-wee Herman, whose theatrical production The Pee-wee Herman Show delighted fans and critics when it premiered in Los Angeles last January. The family-friendly production moves to Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theater with previews beginning October 26th. Pee-wee Herman also has a large social media presence with more than 500,000 followers on Twitter. Funny or Die’s recent “Pee-wee Gets an iPad” viral video garnered over 1.6 million views. The character who recently joined Conan O’Brien at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, is also set to be the Captain of the Buffalo Chip’s Annual Legends Charity Ride that starts in Deadwood, South Dakota as part of the 70th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in early August. The festival will also feature the “World’s Largest “Tequila Dance.”

Damn, I seriously shook with excitement when I read this. I absolutely cannot wait!!!

That was the thing that most disappointed me about the Alamo. I really wanted to go through a guided tour (which they don't even have) and then ask about the basement, or at least ask how many times a day they're asked about the basement.

I dunno. That smoggy rathole was full of tourists. I was especially saddened to see a Ripley's Believe It Or Not just about 500 feet in front of the Alamo.

Were you there in 1994, around late Februrary or early March? I was there then, and there were tourists all around. While I wasn't in one, I did see tours going on. I wanted to ask about the basement, too.

I was back there in September of 1997.

Without doing a search to find out for sure I'm pretty sure the battle took place in Feb/March of 1836. I KNOW for a fact it was 1836 and I'm pretty sure it was around that time.

EDIT: I just did a quick search and it was Feb 23 - March 6, 1836

"We need to close up that gap! Where are the reinforcements?"
"I don't know. We've been waiting for-"
"And over here, this is a wall made of adobe. Can you say it? Ah-doe-bee."
"Ah. Doe. Be."
"Very good. Now ya'll really want to sketch a drawing of this over here..."

They fought for freedom--the freedom to own slaves! How did they fight? By building forts in contested land because both sides chose to interpret the border as being at the river that granted them the most territory.

Not saying they weren't American heroes, but they weren't exactly lilly-white, either. Well, actually, they were, which is why they wanted slaves.

JediTricks
07-08-2010, 05:04 PM
All I'm saying is the Mexicans felt they were tourists at the Alamo, and were asking them to leave. They tried to be extremely persuasive about that.


BTW, the idea of Judd Apatow doing a PWH movie inspires no confidence in me.
