As a young child I always loved the beginning of Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure starring Paul Reubens as the Pee-wee Herman character he’s best known for playing—especially the part where his crazy Rube Goldberg contraption prepares his breakfast for him. I’m still fond of the movie overall to this very day, apart from a certain scene involving a certain sizeably nicknamed truck driver who scarred me for many years. No, I don’t wanna talk about it!
In the video you can check out below, a similar machine has been created that also prepares breakfast for you, just like Pee-wee’s…or for some of you perhaps closer to something you’ve seen in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Wallace and Gromit. It’s not nearly as elaborate or wacky as Pee-wee’s set up, but it does get the job done.
It has been almost 30 years since Pee-wee Herman has graced the screen, but the adorable and lovable character with a big heart is set to make his return in an all new movie called Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.
The Netflix film will feature Paul Reubens reprising the iconic character who is inspired by Joe Manganiello who suggests that Pee-wee leaves his hometown and go on a holiday. Check out the trailer below.
Netflix has released a trailer for Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the upcoming Pee-wee Herman special featuring the seemingly ageless Paul Reubens once again donning the short-legged grey suit and red bowtie.
The trailer is brief but fun, including some of Pee-wee’s wacky contraptions. It also reveals the release date for the special, so fans can get it marked off on their calendar. Hint: it will be arriving on the same day as Daredevil season two, so it should be a great geeky binge day for some with two drastically different things to watch.

Paul Reubens‘ Pee-wee Herman character is coming back in a very big way. After years of gestating, we are finally getting a new film called Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. The film, which will appear exclusively on Netflix, is currently in production.
While no official release date has been set, Reubens has posted the first teaser photo from the film, and will be chronicling the entire experience throughout the production on his blog. Hit the jump to check out the first photo.
It’s been announced that the new feature-length movie, titled Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, is set to begin filming in three weeks, and will premiere exclusively on Netflix in the future. The movie will see the now 62-year-old Paul Reubens once again becoming the forever young Pee-wee, while Anchorman, Superbad, and Bridesmaids producer and The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up director Judd Apatow will produce.
