Network to Rerun "Pee-Wee's Playhouse"
LOS ANGELES -- After being shuttered for more than 15 years, the doors to "Pee-wee's Playhouse" are being reopened. The Emmy Award-winning show will get new life on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup, which will air all 45 original episodes beginning July 10, company officials announced Monday.

"I'd say this is a dream come true," actor Paul Reubens said in a statement.

Reubens, 53, created the bow-tie wearing Pee-wee Herman in 1978 as a member of the L.A.-based comedy troupe, the Groundlings. Known for his big laugh and small suit, Pee-wee gained worldwide fame in 1985 as the star of his own movie, "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," directed by Tim Burton.

The film's success led to "Pee-wee's Playhouse," which originally aired Saturday mornings on CBS beginning in 1986.
Woo-hoo! Okay, so it's not new episodes or anything, but here's hoping that this might nudge the long-rumored new Pee-Wee movie into the green light stage. I'm just happy to see the greatest show in the history of television back on the air! Plus, it'll give us another chance to see Tito, the smokin' hot Playhouse pool lifeguard. Woof.

Get your Pee-Wee fix.

Come on in, and pull yourself up a chair! (That's Chairry!)
Let the fun begin, it's time to let down your hair!
Pee-Wee's sure excited, (Uh-huh!)
'Cause all his friends have been invited (That's you!)
To go wacky... at Pee-Wee's Playhouse! (Arrrrrrrrr!)
