33 years ago, Pee-wee’s Playhouse debuted on CBS!!!

/ by

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!


The ENTIRE Pee-wee’s Playhouse series has been REMASTERED and is now available on blu-ray or DVD!! 

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.

    Happy Anniversary, Pee-wee! An ingenious, ingenious, ingenious and forever young show! A show that brings joy, inspiration and good mood to all people, (regardless of age, gender, nationality and location). A show that proves that art is the best way to describe and understand the world (forgive me for this complicated wording). Thanks to everyone who participated in the creation and restoration of the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse”!
    Sincere thanks!

    Love Pee-Wee’s Playhouse! We watched it every Saturday! And we had Pee-Wee’s big adventure on VHS! We would watch that and Flight of the Navigator during the week to get our Pee-Wee fix. We even had a copy of the original Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, the HBO special!
    I’ll have to get a copy of the blu-ray so I can show it to my kids!
