To the generation that grew up with his groundbreaking Saturday morning television show, Pee-wee Herman is an icon. Revered by media theorists and studied in colleges, his enormous cultural influence continues to reverberate in fashion, film and television. When asked to comment, Herman himself simply said, "I know you are, but what am I?!"
This new version of "The Pee-wee Herman Show," still about a wish, includes Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie, as well as Pee-wee's talking chair, Chairry, Pterri the pterodactyl, robot Conky, Magic Screen, Randy, and of course, Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens.
Many of the show's original artists, both on stage and behind the scenes are involved in this re-imagined production.
