'Pee-Wee's Playhouse' and More New TV Shows on DVD

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Oct 19th 2010 9:00AM
More times than not, when you ask a person to name a celebrity that never ages, a majority of folks will probably sputter off "Cher" or "George Hamilton."

We're going to add Paul Rubens aka Pee-Wee to that list.

Almost 25 years after 'Pee Wee's Playhouse' first aired in 1986, Pee-Wee has not shown the signs of age one bit. That's a very good thing now that Pee Wee is experiencing a resurgence of popularity nationwide, after performing a series of live shows, including on Broadway, this year.

To catch a glimpse of the playhouse that started it all, the complete 'Pee Wee's Playhouse' collection hits DVD shelves this week, turning your DVD player into an instant time machine.

Find out a list of other titles being released this week after the jump!

Pee Wee Herman gets an iPad

I'm not going to lie to you. I'm a bit of a Machead and I REALLY want an iPad. That's why I'm super jealous of Pee-Wee Herman who brought one to the Playhouse in this "Funny or Die" video, even though he already has a robot and a talking screen, both of which Apple are probably developing into overpriced electronic gadgetry so they can suck more money out of my cramped, ink stained hands.

And just for fun, when you hear the word "iPad" in the following video, scream real loud. Ready? Let's try it!

Pee Wee's Playhouse movie has a script, but does it have a screen?

Pee Wee HermanNow that Pee Wee Herman's big comeback is officially in full swing, more news is coming down the pike and today's secret word is "movie."

Pee Wee told the press he has a script for a movie (AHHHHHHHH!) based on his popular Saturday morning kids' show Pee Wee's Playhouse. He said the movie (AHHHHHHH!) would bring back all of the show's original characters and take them out of the playhouse and into the broader, fictional world of "Puppetland." It's also described as a family-friendly movie (AHHHHHHH!), although judging from the reaction my old man had to the show when I watched it as a kid, "family-friendly" might be a loose term for this movie (AHHHHHHH!).

A Pee Wee's Playhouse film has always been lurking around in development hell. An earlier version with Johnny Depp as the title character was being shopped around way back in 2007. If Pee-Wee's Playhouse became a mo.., er, feature film, would you watch it?
