Monday marks Paul Reubens' 60th birthday. He has appeared in such films as "Blow" (2001) and "Mystery Men" (1999), but his most famous character is -- and will likely always be -- Pee-wee Herman.
For those of us who grew up on "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" on the big screen and "Pee-wee's Playhouse" amid Saturday morning cartoons in the '80s, it may be surprising to learn that Pee-wee didn't start off as children's fare. In fact, early Pee-wee would have gotten an R rating if he'd been in the movies.
wow,I can't beleive he's 60. I guess acting like a kid all these years makes one young..
I remember that show and it was good. Was an especial favorite of my significant other at the time. Then there was the movie 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure'. Too bad he got caught in an unauthorized performance in a movie theater doing the hat trick.
