Thank you Shout Factory for sending us these DVD's to review!
I used to love watching Pee-wee's Playhouse as a kid. Now that most people have forgotten about Mr. Reubens' indiscretions, what better time to introduce him to the next generation! Each show begins with Pee-wee getting a secret word from Conky, his robot friend. Every time somebody says that word in the show, everyone is encouraged to scream. (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!) So from here on out, the secret word will be DVD. Everybody knows what to do right?
There are many regulars on the show including Cowboy Curtis played by Morpheus.. I mean Laurence Fishburne, and the late Phil Hartman who played as Captain Carl. This DVD (AHHHHHHHHHHHH!) set contains twenty-three episodes, divided into four discs. In addition to the shows, there are brand-new interviews from the cast and crew. There's over nine hours of silliness to be had in this collection.
This show is pretty clean and often teaches good morals and manners. There are lots of cartoons and clay animated shorts that are fun to watch. The visuals are pretty good, with exception to the old school cartoons that showed their age twenty-five years ago. (Yes it's been that long and I feel old now.) Everything else is bright and colorful.
Kids of all ages are bound to enjoy this show. I must admit that it brings back great memories. My kids are now fans of Pee-wee Herman and we'll have to show them his movies next.
If you're looking for a silly and clean show for your kids, check this DVD (AHHHHHHHHHH!) collection out. Amazon sells this special edition for less than $30. Older collections without the interviews can be had for less than $15 on DVD (AHHHHHHHHHH!).
