On September 13, 1986, my TV show Pee-wee’s Playhouse debuted on television!!
The first episode was titled “Ice Cream Soup” and it first aired on this day in 1986! My show ran for five seasons and picked up 22 Emmy Awards!
So many people write to tell me they’re introducing my show to their children and that the kids love it, which is so great to hear! It’s cool to hear the next generation will be raised on Jambi, Miss Yvonne, Cowboy Curtis, Reba the mail lady, Captain Carl, Magic Screen, Conky, Globey, Chairry, Pterri, Randy, and everyone in the Playhouse!
I spent over a year supervising the meticulous restoration of my show and it looks spectacular, if I do say so myself! The show was shot on film but then immediately transferred to tape. The editing and all the effects were all done on the videotape version and the program was never, ever, seen on film by anyone… until last year!! The colors and detail are truly amazing. Honest! Plus there is an amazing amount of bonus material including interviews with the cast and crew and behind-the-scenes footage.
