CON: Pee-wee Herman!

07.21.2011

He was a late edition to the Comic Con this year but that didn't stop Pee-wee Herman from showing up and taking over Hall H. A surprise to many of the attendees, Pee Wee took the stage to talk as little as possible about the forthcoming new film with Judd Apatow and basically make fun of everything thrown his way. Dude owned the audience with quick wit and self-appreciation but got away without doing the "Pee-wee" dance. Here's a quick rundown of the panel after the pic.

  • -The studio was reading the script to the new film as he spoke to the crowd. The Apatow name has a lot to do with the fact that's it even getting made.
  • -It's going to be another road movie as Apatow wanted to keep it as close as possible in feel to PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE.
  • -The script was written by Pee-wee and Paul Rust, of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
  • -Twisted Sister will not be making an appearance in the movie.
  • -Pee-wee constantly hears stories about how much Large Marge scarred his fans for life.

  • -Pee-wee says he owns 600-800 grey suits and that he throws them away whenever they get wet because they're made of paper.
  • -He was upset when his voice was removed from Star Tours, the motion simulator located at various Disney parks. When asked by the crowd he shouted one of the lines he used to say during the ride, "R2, light speed to Endor!"
  • -He has no idea how many licks it takes to get to the middle of a Tootsie Pop.
  • -The house he filmed NICE DREAMS in with Cheech & Chong is now owned by Johnny Depp and once was lived in by Bela Lugosi.
  • -He was always very grateful of how lenient the censors at CBS were when it came to his show. The only thing they ever asked him not to do was to put a pencil in a potato.

  • -Some of his favorite non-Pee-wee roles are from MYSTERY MEN, BLOW, and LIFE DURING WAR TIME, the sequel to HAPPINESS.
  • -Pee-wee was leaving the Con and going directly to The Alamo to film an episode of Top Chef.
  • -At the end of the presentation Pee-wee kind of broke character to give a heartwarming thanks to all his fans. He says he didn't have a chance back when he was filming the show to have this kid of interaction and it meant a lot to him to get out and meet his fans.
  • -The word of the day was "Comic Con".

What kind of world is it we live in when there is no Mystery Men 2 but a Big Momma's House 3! Ah well, I'm curious about this new Pee Wee movie. Should be fun :)

sounds cool, though I would have loved to have seen what Playland looked like. So if they read the script, then what is the film about?

Well guess what? "Green Lantern 2" is on the way so I think I pretty much win this argument.

I'm so excited for another Pee-wee movie and that it will be more like the original, which has always been a favorite of mine. Who would have thought we'd see more of this character? I hope we get the movie sooner rather than later.

He should cast Stallone and then pass the torch down onto him as being the next Pee Wee Herman.

You are the one that is sensitive with your total man love obsession over Stallone.

Get over yourself.

Hmmm. You know, I really don't care to indulge your little game, but I will say this: I haven't mentioned Stallone in any way, shape or form in a long time. The only times he was even part of a conversation I took part in when you were around, I wasn't even referring to him specifically, so I think you're exaggerating a little.

good question. Another good question is why Kel Mitchel never made it as big as Keenan. He is WAY funnier in my opinion.
