Pee-wee’s Playhouse Seasons 1 and 2 is Sophomoric, Yet Funny

  • comment

My youngest daughter and I recently watched some episodes of Pee-wee’s Playhouse Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set. We’re both fans of the Pee-wee movies. In Pee-wee’s Playhouse, Paul Reubens’s wacky persona is the same as the character in the movies. The humor is essentially the same (very sophomoric). But unlike the films, the TV shows jump from one gag to the next without any real purpose. The shows are still funny like the Pee-wee movies, but there isn’t really a story for you to follow along because Pee-wee’s Playhouse is a show, not a movie. Overall, I think the series is worth watching if you’re a kid or a big fan of the Pee-wee movies. Just keep in mind the target audience is kids. Pee-wee’s Playhouse: Seasons 1 & 2 (Shout! Factory) is available now on DVD.

For the first time, the Pee-wee’s Playhouse is available in high-definition (note: it’s in letter box format). The Pee-wee’s Playhouse Seasons 1 & 2 DVD set includes 23 episodes on four discs. It also includes exclusive brand-new interviews with members of the cast and crew. The DVD set has a runtime of about 540 minutes — that’s a whopping nine hours. With a price tag around $25, you’re going to get your money’s worth.
