The Pee-Wee Herman timeline is hard to follow now, because it all happened so quickly - and started 30 years ago! It started on stage in 1980 (The Pee-Wee Herman Show), then a one-off HBO special, then the movie (directed by Tim Burton - his first feature!!), and THEN came the CBS morning show, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, starting in 1986.

Phil Hartman (one of my comedy heroes) was on for 4 episodes in 86 and 87.

Also on for 4 episodes: Laurence Fishburne as Cowboy Curtis.

Rob Zombie was a production assistant.

Truly remarkable stuff.

The Pee-Wee Herman Show opens on Broadway Oct. 26, at the Stephen Sondheim Theater, an updated revival of the original stage play that also combines elements from Pee-Wee's Playhouse.

I guess the question is, after adult-oriented stage work, a movie directed by the young Tim Burton, and a kids show on acid, how much weirder can a remake get? Well, I suppose we're about to find out....
