Pee-wee's Playhouse Premiered 25 Years Ago

I forgot to post this one on Tuesday, but its such an important television show, I am posting it late.

The trippy and inuendo-loaded television cult classic, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, premiered 25 years ago on September 13, 1986. In 2004 and 2007, Pee-wee's Playhouse was ranked #10 and #12 on TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever.

Paul Rubens, the genius behind the show, and the actor who plays Pee-Wee continues to be involved in cutting edge avante guard television and cinema.

The show has already been cancelled  in 1991 when Pee-wee was arrested in an adult cinema in 1991 in South Florida along with three other men for indecency,. He eventually was fined $50.00 for masturbating in public. Reruns were pulled immediately.  However, the shows genius continues to resurface; you can read about his current projects here on his blog:

The opening sequence below is considered one of the wackiest and most artistic in all of television.  Make sure to watch it:
