Pee Wee Herman
The secret word is “Happy Birthday!” Last year, Pee Wee’s Playhouse was recreated on Broadway and it was really cool to see all the characters of his former Saturday morning not-just-for-kids show in living color. They taped one of the performances and aired it on HBO (and I believe a DVD will be released). It didn’t capture the magic of seeing the set come to life in person, but Pee Wee freaks will want to add the disc to their collection.
Happy birthday, Pee Wee (insert screams here).

The secret words are: amazing timing! On January 9, 2011, I found out at the last moment that I had a spot on the guest list for Pee Wee Herman’s exclusive Foursquare bowling party! What amazing timing. (Insert audience screams here.) Justin of the awesome blog Billyburgwick and I braved the cold and headed to Bowlmor lanes in Times Square to check out the action. As our amazing timing (insert audience screams here) would have it, moments after arriving, we saw the guest of honor – Pee Wee Herman! Pee Wee was super cool and his friend took a photo of us! Thanks Pee Wee! I’ve been a fan of Pee Wee’s since Pee Wee’s Playhouse was originally on the air and seeing it live on Broadway in October was amazing! In addition to being really cool, I think it’s great that Pee Wee is embracing technology and is having the chance to introduce his wonderful gift to a new generation. Thanks again Pee Wee!
