Pee-wee Herman on HBO TONIGHT, old friends bring happy memories, preview

M&C By April MacIntyre

HBO airs a bit of nostalgia tonight with the Broadway show of Pee-wee Herman filmed for the small screen.

Pee-wee is not everyone's cuppa, as some never got his eternally sexless, innocent yet prankster persona and felt the show was constant code for something subversive and bad.  But my son loved Pee-wee and so did I, and we always watched the show together when it ran on TV back in the 1980s. We still snicker over his "Alamo" joke and "Tequila" scene in the biker bar from his first film.
