AP: 'Pee-wee' Returns in reruns

News comes today that Cartoon Network will air all 45 original episodes of the hugely popular ’80s TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse. They will be part of the “Adult Swim” block, and will begin on July 10. Perhaps one of the most surprising pieces of news in all of this, is the revelation that Pee-wee himself (actor Paul Reubens) is now 53 years old.

The Associated Press article ends with a reminder that, “In 1991, a year after production wrapped on the final season of ‘Playhouse,’ Reubens was arrested in Florida for indecent exposure.” This just goes to show that Paul Reubens could discover the cure for cancer, but at the end of the Nobel prize announcement it will say: “And, this one time, he was caught masturbating in a theater.”
