You know, I don't blame Pee Wee for going to a theatre to masturbate.

I mean -- who would want to do it in a house where everything is alive and spying on you?

Because of the Weird Al song "Pretty Fly for a Rabbi", I had been guessing 'Meccha leccha hi, meccha hiney hiney ho' was part of a bar mitzvah or something.  But now, I guess not

I was just looking up some clips of his 1983 cable special a few days ago. I had no idea he'd passed.

Ok that topic - one of my favorite Jambi moments was in the Pee Wee HBO special where Pee Wee gives Jambi his wish for the day and Jambi uses it to get a pair of hands. Then he promptly tells Pee Wee "I'll be right back. There's been something I've been wanting to do for a long time."

Pee Wee is portrayed as an arrested man-child but his content has never been for children. Even going back to the original Groundlings stage shows where he honed the character's traits and desires, the subject matter was always adult-oriented, suggestive, and not for children (but never explicit).

Yeah. That special made me go back and watch his stage performances. I grew up watching the kids show but remember some clearly adultish humor and sexual tension.

Weirdly, I found myself defending PeeWee recently in a conversation about intent vs offense when it comes to "scandals" of public people.

True. In many ways one of the most honest things anyone in showbiz ever did, albeit in this case unintentionally as a public thing, was when Paul Reubens went and yanked his crank, and got outted for it, in that sleazy porn theater.  Even at the time I was amused by the outrage of dumdums who had never, apparently, actually gotten that his character wasn't actually a children's show host or actually meant for children. Not that yanking his crank was as far as the character was ever meant to go, but it was always possible something might hint at it. It was supposed to be unsettling and weird.  When people started taking it seriously, that was the true oddity.

I was about 10 when I saw that special. I didn't understand why my dad thought that line was funny.

My takeaway from that story was: "There are still porn theaters?"

The internet hadn't taken off yet but it was still surprising.

One of the great "that guy"s of comedy. And apart from being a staple of my childhood on Pee Wee's Playhouse, he was also one of the major writers for Elvira (basically on everything she's ever done).
