Pee-wee's Playhouse stars Pee-wee Herman (played by Paul Reubens, voice of Lock in The Nightmare Before Christmas) and a crazy cast of characters from all over Puppetland. Each episode usually teaches a lesson to the viewer such has how to stay healthy or how to make friends. Pee-wee's Playhouse is aimed at children but can be enjoyed by all ages with its great sense of humor. For example, each episode has a secret word. Whenever anyone says the secret word, everyone screams as loud as they can.
Main Title Theme Song
Written by George McGrath, Mark Mothersbaugh, and Paul Reubens; performed by Ellen Shaw
Come on in, and pull yourself up a chair (like Chairry!)
Let the fun begin, it's time to let down your hair
Pee-wee's so excited,
'Cause all his friends have been invited (that's you!)
To go wacky, at Pee-wee's Playhouse
There's a crazy rhythm, comin' from Puppetland (what's that?)
Dirty Dog, Cool Cat, and Chicky Baby are the Puppet Band (yeah!)
He's got a couple of talkin' fish,
And a genie who'll grant a wish
Golly, it's cuckoo at Pee-wee's Playhouse
Globey's spinnin', Mr. Window's grinnin'
'Cause Pterri's flyin' by (hello!)
The Flowers are singin', the Picture Phone is ringin',
And the Dinosaur family goes, "Hi!"
Mr. Kite's soarin', Conky's still a snorin',
There's the flashing Magic Screen
The Cowntess is so classy, Randy's kinda sassy
A nuttier establishment you've never seen!
Spend the day with Pee-wee, and you'll see what we mean! (Come on!)
Get outta bed, there'll be no more nappin' (Wake up!)
'Cause you've landed in a place where anything can happen
Now we've given you fair warnin'
It's gonna be that kind of mornin'
For bein' wacky
For getting nutty
Golly, it's cuckoo
