    Funniest scene in any movie ever made. I only just started learning as an adult that some people were actually SCARED of it as kids!

    “Large Marge” was sooo good! We watched it repeatedly too. My kids and I had fun with this one. Pee Wee’s big adventure is a classic treasure, we never grow tired of it.

    I was horrified as a kid. I would have to fast forward so I couldn’t see her make the face. I also wouldn’t allow anyone to say the name Large Marge in my presence.

  • Susan

    We would freeze the tape when she made that face! Ha!!

  • An epic film indeed, one of the most wildly successful film & scary scenes with you & large Marge. Love it! ? Have a wonderful day Paul.

    Classic film that never gets old, I enjoyed watching it countless times with my daughter, niece, nephews and now my grandchildren, three generations of Pee-Wee Herman fans.
    Large Marge, Shoe Dance on the bar, talking about the big “but” in life, dealing with his arch nemesis, the chase scene, getting the girl at the end, Pee-Wee doesn’t have watch the movie about his life, he lived it.

  • Marge was just big-boned but “Big Boned Marge” just doesn’t sound right.

  • Carl Powers

    We love you PeeWee

  • Jett Vee

    Aw. So cute.

    Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. My favorite movie of all time. And every time I watch it I see something different. Like the scene where Pee Wee gets on the motorcycle, looks into the camera with a really cool look, kicks the bike into gear, takes off fast, then accidentally crashes through the billboard. And at the last second before the scene cut, at the last second you see Pee Wee fly off the bike, looking like a floppy rag doll flying off. Behind the billboard. If you blink, you’d miss it. Hysterical. Comedy gold.
