Pee-wee’s Playhouse finally comes to DVD

Early adopters of DVD may recall, that along with Shawshank Redemption and Back to the Future, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was one of the longest delayed discs in the format’s history, but even after it finally arrived there was no word on the beloved Pee-wee’s Playhouse television show. Finally, Image Entertainment will release the show which was just named by TV Guide as on of the top 25 cult shows on television.

The entire series will come out split into two box sets containing audio commentaries with Paul Reubens and other features from the Pee-wee archives. In addition to the two sets, Pee-wee’s Christmas Special – which included a new fruitcake wing on the playhouse – will be made available.

Suggested retail on the box sets will be $49.95 each. The Christmas Special will be priced at$14.99. All three releases will happen in early 2005. See you then Cowboy Curtis.
