Pee-Wee Herman

Pee-wee Herman returns

Pee-wee Herman, the nerd in the grey suit with red lipstick and the distinctive "heh heh heh" laugh, has come out of retirement after almost two decades, and the critics think he's still funny. Ref. Source 3

Herman Pee-Wee

Baffling. I watched Peewee's Playhouse, though I was too old, because it was just so bizarre, like a parody of an older, real kids' show, but one which inexplicably remained on TV. I saw his movie and even kind of enjoyed it. His whole Pewee persona was really irritating and obnoxious, but there was something compelling about him at the time. As I was looking at the picture of him in this link just now, I realized I think it is because I realize he is a form of clown or mime, or even an older comedian like Charlie Chaplin - a new concept but also a throwback to a much earlier, simpler, seemingly mindless and innocent time. I personally don't think he has it in him to maintain this to the point it can be accepted again, he's too old and likely has a resentment for the character, deep down - too cynical, or worse, he may have some sort of breakdown or psychotic break. I don't see it ending well - either simply the whole project and such dying quietly, or loudly.

Well that sex scandal at the adult movie theater is what most people in the US that are over 30 remember and the booking photo that came with it. Pee Wee Herman or Pervert Herman...same difference to most of us. He can probably make it with a stageshow aimed at making fun of himself for a while, but I suspect that will become tiresome quickly. With the cost of making a new movie, I just cant see anyone forking over the bucks and taking the risk demanded in getting another Pee Wee Herman movie in box offices unless he becomes wildly popular again.

Honestly, I see the only way for him to keep making money will be for him to become an adult comedian (meaning lots of lewdness and sexual innuendos).

Herman Pee-Wee

I remember Pee Wee Herman and his show. I watched it a lot, fell asleep to it mostly. I think it came on right around noon which was my unofficial nap time. Anyway, I don't know if it was so great that now after so much time it can be brought back.

Everyone knows him as a pervert. He was a star in a kids show, then exposed himself in an adult movie. Seems a little to weird for me and I'm pretty open minded. I think if you are a role model for kids you have a responsibility to certain things.

I don't see a problem with him still having a career, he is talented obviously. However I would not want my kid being influenced by someone who engaged in activities like this. As harmless as it was, I just have to wonder what frame of mind he was in to do that. What other thoughts are floating around in his head that he isn't acting on in public, yet.

To be fair, it wasn't really a "sex scandal" if I remember it right, it was just him, doing something solo, legal in private, but did it in public, but at a place where I rather doubt that others weren't doing it also. I really don't think that should confer the status of "pervert" to him, unless he was really being obnoxious or lewd with it, to other people, etc.

I don't think it necessarily shows any inclinations or unnatural predilections, other than maybe exhibitionism, and I wouldn't really be any more worried about him being a role model, in his Pewee Persona, than any other person, except maybe Mister Rogers, who I probably would say is the celebrity I would have ever trusted the most.

I was searching through our database and I can't believe we don't have anything on Paul Reubens. His arrest was based on publicly masturbating in an adult theater: Source 9

The simple facts of what happened that Friday night in Reubens' hometown of Sarasota, Fla., are familiar by now. According to the county sheriff's office, three detectives went to the XXX South Trail Cinema to watch the audience that was watching a triple bill of Catalina Five-O Tiger Shark, Nurse Nancy, and Turn Up the Heat. After the sting operation had hauled in three men on charges of violating Florida State Statute 800.03, Exposure of Sexual Organs, Det. William Walters allegedly saw a man ''masterbate'' - that's how the rap sheet spells it - in the darkened theater at 8:25 p.m. And again at 8:35. Placed under arrest upon leaving the theater, the alleged offender quietly told the detectives his famous pseudonym and, according to the police, made a novel, Pee-wee-esque attempt at a buy-off: He offered to perform a children's benefit for the sheriff's office if the charges were dropped. (A department spokesman said that ''the deputies did not feel at that time that they had enough probable cause'' to charge Reubens with attempted bribery.) A local reporter recognized Reubens' name on the arrest sheet the next day, and within hours the scandal machinery was roaring at full throttle.

I was just using the sex scandal phrase from the original linked article. Yes, he did get caught with others doing the same thing. Now, I would have to disagree with him not being a bit of a perv as he was caught doing this...

This was not Reubens' first arrest in the county; in 1971 he was arrested for loitering and prowling near an adult theater, though charges were later dropped. His second arrest was in 1983 when Reubens was placed on two years' probation for possession of marijuana, although adjudication was withheld.

Seems he had an affinity for adult theaters for a while. I wonder what the prowling was?

The main concern with any kind of sex crime is the rehabilitation. Very rarely does anyone ever leave their sex-capades alone. I had some laughs at Pee-Wee as a kid but what he was doing his free time is no laughing matter.
