Throw Back Thursday!

Time to jump into the way back machine and go way back to the year 1986. I know we spend a lot of time in the 80’s but wouldn’t you if you had a time machine? Besides this is why we call it Throwback 😀 Let’s reminisce about a wonderful show from our childhood. Ahh Yes, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse… They don’t make em like that anymore.

Say what you want about Paul Rubens (Pee-Wee) but this show was awesome. It had great characters, a fun and energetic host, plus it taught you important lessons about life. You tell me what show has that sort of redeeming value these days. Obviously this wasn’t just for kids because we still talk about Pee-Wee’s Playhouse to this day. In fact In 2004 and 2007, Pee-wee’s Playhouse was ranked #10 and #12 on TV Guide’s Top Cult Shows Ever. A great show and some great memories. Besides who could ever forget Laurence Fishburne dressed as Cowboy Curtis.

Not many things stand the test of time but this show is still great. I have actually shown Pee-Wee’s Playhouse to my six year old son and he loves it just as much as I did. So let us raise our glasses to Pee-Wee and his Playhouse…Thanks for the memories.
