2002-01-05 12:21:30 AM  
Works for me, seems proper somehow.
2002-01-05 12:21:51 AM  
I love that show and Rob Zombie too.
It totally makes sense.
2002-01-05 12:21:55 AM  
What else is there to say other than....

That would explain a lot of things.
2002-01-05 12:22:14 AM  
err...yes, actually, i did know that. but, technically, i believe he was actually an intern. whatever.
2002-01-05 12:23:33 AM  
Ha! No wonder why they use the names Rob Zombie and Spider One! Boy, I would hate to have a name like Cummings!!......... Oh fark this I'm just grasping for straws.
2002-01-05 12:25:59 AM  
Kilgore40: Funny you should say that. I was in school with a girl who had the last name of Cummings. She wasn't bad-looking, either.
2002-01-05 12:27:45 AM  
Since are headlines questions? WTF is that.
2002-01-05 12:28:24 AM  
That was funny. =+)
2002-01-05 12:33:05 AM  
Actually, I DID know that.

1. Wake and bake.
2. Watch Pee Wee.
3. Eat Crunch Berrys out of the box.
4. Scream like a motherfarker when they say the secret word.

It's the recipie for happiness.
2002-01-05 12:51:15 AM  
Actually, this explains a lot! ROFL!

2002-01-05 01:12:51 AM

2002-01-05 01:16:38 AM  
Well he DOES have like a masters in theatrical arts
2002-01-05 01:36:06 AM  
Lawrence Fishbourne was the Cowboy on PeeWee's Playhouse, too.
2002-01-05 01:40:47 AM  
My God, I was a grown man and I would almost cry as Pee Wee would mount his bike and fly away at the end. I can hear the little tune.
2002-01-05 01:48:11 AM  
he was on Stern one morning a couple years ago and they talked about that. I think he referred to Pee Wee as a creepy freak who was completely dark and moody till the cameras went on.
2002-01-05 01:48:52 AM

The late great Phil Hartman was Captain Carl. R.I.P.
and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie) played Opal.
2002-01-05 02:04:41 AM  
Phil Hartman was a regular on the show too. He was the Capt. dude guy whatever the hell his name was.
2002-01-05 02:05:37 AM  
DOH !!!
2002-01-05 02:10:36 AM  
Best. Show. Ever.

Darn you Itlan, you beat me with that little known fact. It's true, Lawrence Fishburn was Cowboy Curtis. I keep imagining the father from Boyz In The Hood engaged in dialogue with Pee-Wee Herman.
Dad From Boyz In The Hood: ...and that's how the white man is putting liquer stores on every corner in the ghetto to kill the black man.
Pee-Wee Herman: Haha! I know you are, but what am I?
Dad From Boyz In The Hood: Shut up, cracker a$$ mother****er.
Pee-Wee Herman: (dances to "Tequila")
2002-01-05 05:05:18 AM  
that was a show for pedofiles

Pee Wee rocks.

I have the tapes. I have the Pee Wee doll in my office. I even have a miniature "Chairy" on my desk. I am so warper I scare myself not to mention my kids. Oh well.

One of the funniest things I ever saw on Pee Wee's Playhouse was when Jambi (The wizard 'head-in-a-box' thing) was granted a wish. He had wished for a pair of hands. His wish was granted and it shows him wiggling his fingers and smiling with joy. Then he looks straight at Pee Wee and says, "Uh...Pee Wee, I'll be back in a few minutes. There's something I've always wanted to do with these!" Then he slides down out of sight.

Pee Wee spins and smirks into the camera. Hilarious.

PWPH was the Rocky and Bullwinkle of the '80s generation. Good times. That, and The Muppet Show.

I love IMDB, according to them, Britney Spears, although born in 1981, was a guest star on a TV show called Top of the Pops in 1964. How does that work?
2002-01-05 12:14:12 PM  
Flignir: 1964 is the year when Top of the Pops first appeared. It's been on since then (IIRC, it's a UK show).
2002-01-05 01:23:08 PM  
Oh, sure, ruin my fun with the facts.
2002-01-05 01:32:24 PM  
Dig through the ditches, burn through the witches-I slam in the back of my Dragula..... btw Rob Zombie is an Amazing Cartoonist
2002-01-05 03:43:19 PM  
Rob Zombie is my father..... well not really, I just always thought that it would really cool to have a dad that would scare the crap out of my friends.
2002-01-05 04:03:37 PM  
Wow, my recently ex-girlfriend is in the IMDB. Too bad she doesn't have a weblog. Sorry, guys. I'll try to convince her to start one.
2002-01-05 04:57:53 PM  
Well no wonder Rob Zombie is who he is.
2002-01-05 06:45:16 PM  
Anyone remember the Pee-Wee Christmas special?

PeeWee--AAAGGHH!!! Yellow snow!!
