I think the actual movie was 'Nurse Nancy', at least that's what Sam Kinison said in his routine as he ripped Pee Wee for it. Man this WAS a long time ago, wasn't it?

I wank off to Pee-Wee Herman movies as tribute.

Wonder what happened to the deviant cops who were openly cruising for exposed dicks at an adult establisment.

He meant to do that.

Except it wasn't really child porn, per se.  I think.

Really old child porn?  I dunno, who was the photographer and what were they known for?  By the cases standards, my posession of photographs (reprints) by Frantisek Drtikol would have landed me the same legal trouble.

Paul Reubens -- best known as onetime TV character Pee-wee Herman -- pleaded guilty on Friday to an obscenity charge as part of a settlement in a child pornography case.

The actor, 51, had faced charges stemming from a 2001 search of his Los Angeles house, during which police said they found materials that appeared to depict children engaged in sexual activity. In a press release, Reubens's Los Angeles-based rep, Kelly Bush, said the alleged improper images were from his "extensive historical art photography collection."

In the settlement, Reubens agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor possession of an obscene image "with the intent to exhibit his collection," said Bush. He was fined $100, received three years' probation and agreed to be registered as a sex offender, the Associated Press reports.

"We view both of these counts equally in terms of serious nature of child pornography," Eric Moses, a spokesman for the city attorney's office, told the AP.

In his own statement, Reubens said, in part: "I am glad the prosecutors finally dismissed the child pornography charge without me or the taxpayers having to pay for a costly circus-like trial. I am disappointed any part of my art collection was ever deemed inappropriate. Taking responsibility by calling a few images in this collection 'obscene' and paying a $100 fine seemed like the sanest way to make it end."


 He took one for the team.  I still want to know the photographer.  Porn is difficult to define legally, but I know it when I see it dammit!

Holy fark...I'm sorry...Blame the People website.   I'll get the sawdust and mop to clean up this mess.
 
2013-11-09 10:03:47 AM  
i was still pretty young when he got arrested, so me and my friends were not entirely sure exactly what it was that he did.  we heard that he ran through a regular theater completely naked because he was on drugs.  i don't think any of our parents wanted to try to explain what an "adult theater" was, so they exaggerated the whole thing in the hopes we would be so shocked that we would not even want to think about it.  it wasn't until several years later when pee-wee started getting back on television that i looked it up and found out what he actually got arrested for.

Pee Wee was funny for a couple years, but I really enjoy Paul's other roles. He was great in Blow, Pushing Daisies, and Reno 911.

I saw Pee Wee's Playhouse on Broadway a few years ago, as someone who grew up loving Playhouse, it was a religious experience just being there to see it in person. I really hope the long proposed movie finally makes it's way out of development hell, but I'm not holding my breath.

I've never understood the point of charging people with indecency over jacking in a porn theater. You have hardcore porn showing on the movie screen, which is perfectly alright, but somehow pulling your dick out is obscene?

It was a bullshiat call when he was arrested, but it was hard to pull that out (ha!) from all the hysterical stories. He was a kiddie star who looked at porn and wanked, OH NOES!! So I applaud him for coming back after that.

I also thought he was farking great in Blow.

Is the towel the same one from when he was arrested 23 years ago?  If so, it may still be standing as well.

There are people in America who would rather explain the Dahmer thing than Reubens to a kid. Especially back then.

What's worse, Pee Wee getting arrested for whipping out Li'l Pee Wee 22 years ago, or Fred Willard for doing the same thing last year? I mean, back in 1991, we had to wait 20 minutes for our 14.4k baud modem to download one grainy black-and-white photo; today, we can download the entire oeuvre of Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jameson in half the time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIv4PHJqCnM

Beauty is Embarrasing, the Wayne White story.

Wayne White was the principle puppet maker and puppeteer for Pee Wee's Playhouse.  The Doc gives a great little inside look at what was going on between NYC and LA for PW'sP and all the stuff he did before, during and after and his current artistic life

I put it on at 3am as something to sleep away to and stayed awake for the entire run and it lifted me out of a horrible mood

Ah, 1991, also the year Magic Johnson announced he had HIV, contracted from his promiscuous premarital hijinks; also the year Wilt Chamberlain released his book boasting of his bedding of over 20,000 women. Both heroes!
And Pee Wee gets his balls busted for PRACTICING SAFE SEX IN A PLACE DESIGNED FOR EXACTLY THAT!

well... um... actually, while it was an adult theater, that showed adult films... it was a public theater. not a ... buddy box or anything like that..

of course, that is all semantics. folks regualry jerk off in such theaters, and there is no doubt that Mr. Ruebans was railroaded on the charges because he was a popular children's show host.  but lets not pretend that despite the circumstances dude wasn't whacking it in "Public"

I first started following the PeeWee herman show when it was an outstretch of Burlesque theater, Co created,  co written, and Co starring Phil Hartman that, for some reason, was shown on HBO at whatever hour and was presented as Children's entrainment despite all the adult humor

I really gotta say, that exposure, at such an early age, maybe 7-8 years old helped me to be come the well rounded artistic person I am today.
