“Pee-Wee’s Playhouse”

Posted on

1

When my kids were small, they were absolutely nutso over the show.

I mean, I remember many Saturday mornings starting out with, “Get up, Get up, Get up, Pee-wee is on!”

Okay, okay, I was also nutso over the show.

***

One of our favorite recurring gags was, “I know you are, but what am I?“, and it would often go something like this:

Pee-wee: I wouldn’t sell my bike for all the money in the world. Not for a hundred million, billion, trillion dollars!
Francis: Then you’re crazy!
Pee-Wee: I know you are, but what am I?
Francis: You’re a nerd!
Pee-wee: I know you are, but what am I?
Francis: You’re an idiot!
Pee-wee: I know you are, but what am I?
Pee-Wee, Francis: I know you are, but what am I? I know you are, but what am I? I know you are, but what am I? I know you are, but what am I? I know you are, but what am I? (Pee-Wee): Infinity!
Francis: No, I’m not.
Francis, Pee-Wee: You are! No way! Knock it off! Cut it out!
Francis: Shut up, Pee-Wee!
Pee-wee: Why don’t you make me.
Francis: You make me!
Pee-Wee: Because. I don’t make monkeys, I just train ’em.
Francis: Pee-Wee listen to reason.
[Pee-Wee cuffs his hand around his ear in a listening motion]
Francis: Pee-Wee!
Pee-wee: Sh! I’m listening to reason.
Francis: Pee-Wee!
Pee-Wee: That’s my name, don’t wear it out.

It was CLASSIC, seven-year-kid-old humor, maybe eight; and GAWD, I loved watching it with my sons!

I've had the good fortune to live in many far-away places; from Brazil to Tokyo, from London to the Middle East. -------- '04 and '05 I was working in Amman, Jordan; ten-hour days, seven days a week, eight straight weeks, followed with twelve days off. Anywhooo, I jus' by chance happen to hear the Stones: "Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is"; and THEN I realized, NO it's NOT; so I QUIT, and ended a thirty-five year career in Construction Management. Since August of 2005, I've been living in Chiang Mai (the Rose of the North), Thailand. note: The readers of 'Travel Leisure Magazine' in a 2006 survey, voted Chiang Mai the 5th BEST City in the WORLD!!.
