The other day I watched this clip of Peewee Herman on the now defunct Conan O'Brien Tonight Show, acting out Coco's legal battle with stuffed animals and robot action figures. I had kind of forgotten how much I love Peewee Herman and his crazy awesome playhouse (BTW, Paul Reubens is looking amazing!). I really wish that I could go see the live stage show that he's doing in LA right now. This article from the Hollywood reporter makes it sound so fun. I'm a little sad that Laurence Fishburne didn't want to play Cowboy Curtis again, they got the guy who does the voice of Hermes on Futurama to play him instead. What, is Larry too cool now from doing the Matrix to rock the jerry curl and chaps?
The show was always such a good combination of surreal weirdness and surprisingly wholesome moments. Like this clip. Beyond the weirdness of a cowboy getting dating advice from a cow, it's actually a pretty helpful primer of what to do on your first date. Plus, you've gotta love the secret word.
When I was little, I would always get stressed out by the resident playhouse asshole, Randy. He was seriously such a dick. Why did they even let him hang out there?
Peewee is the best eternal man child ever. There are some full eps up on Youtube. I'm looking forward to watching them!
