5.0 out of 5 stars The final three seasons of a truly landmark series November 7, 2004
Has there ever been a more surreal and bizarre opening sequence to any show ever made in America than that of PEE WEE'S PLAYHOUSE? The Surrealists felt that one of the keys of art lay in our dreams, and the intro to this show seems like a happy nightmare of sorts. The music, Pee Wee's odd vocal interjections, the variety of visual images, the introduction of the strange group of inhabitants living in the playhouse, all combine to announce to the would-be viewer that his was a show that wasn't going to go down any path that had been traveled by any previous show.

For five seasons beginning in 1986, this was simply one of the most amazing shows TV has ever produced. Paul Reubens was amazing as Pee Wee Herman, literally a child with the appearance of an adult, who was a veritable encyclopedia of irritating habits that kids can assume, with every annoying verbal come a kid has ever used. Armed with a great group of writers, a stellar cast, and some remarkable set and character designers, this show did things that no kid's show had ever done before or has done sense, though the influence on the more anarchistic line of kid's cartoons can still be detected. I would be willing to be that the makers of shows like SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS are fans of Pee Wee.

Unfortunately, this all came crashing to an end when a sex scandal caused CBS to pull the show off TV. In fact, before the scandal they had already ceased making new episodes of the show. But the incident did two things: 1) it caused CBS to cease showing the show in reruns and 2) killed off any future use of the Pee Wee character by Reubens.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wild mix of Mr. Rogers, The Wizard of Oz and MTV November 16, 2004
A must have for any DVD library, this groundbreaking, innovative series, Pee-wee's Playhouse, was created and produced by the genius of Paul Reubens who also stars as pop culture icon, Pee-wee Herman. Pee-wee's Playhouse is marked by a campy sensibility and frequent use of double entendre, engaging viewers of all ages.

Incorporating clips from vintage cartoons, 3-D animation, hand puppets, marionettes, and a cast of endearingly eccentric memorable characters, Pee-wee's Playhouse is non-stop fun that might best be described as a wild mix of Mr. Rogers, The Wizard of Oz and MTV. Each episode, Pee-wee Herman welcomes you into his kaleidoscope, fantasy clubhouse for adventure through a labyrinth of zany characters and sci-fi inventions. Music for the shows was provided by cutting edge artists such as Mark Mothersbaugh, Todd Rundgren, Danny Elfman, and Van Dyke Parks.

This set of DVD releases divides all 5 years (45 episodes) of the Playhouse into 2 affordable box sets (which includes 8 lost episodes) in all their side splitting hilarity sparkling in never before seen DVD clarity.

Also, check out the newly released DVD of Pee-wee's Playhouse Christmas Special -- a charming, star-studded Christmas classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection, but deceptive wording November 30, 2004
By Skootch
I agree with everything that's been said so far. I loved this show when I was young, ans I'm glad that I had a tape with many episodes to watch from around season 3 after they pulled it from the air waves. Thatnk god they released this set as the tape was starting to get old and the quality was dropping at an increasing rate. My only problem with the set is the use of the term "lost episodes". I'm not sure if it just means they were ommited from the VHS set, but I know at least Heat Wave and Chairry Tee Drive were aired as they are on the tape that I have that was taped directly from their original airings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff.. but beware the double-dip November 11, 2004
A box set containing all 45 episodes PLUS audio commentary, behind-the-scenes footage and other extras is scheduled for next year. Real fans will want to wait, if they can stand it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Christmas special missing March 13, 2011
My boyfriend got me this from amazon.com back in 2006 or 2007. At the time there was no complete series set. Seeing that this says it has the entire 3rd season I figured it would have my favorite episode the Christmas Special. IT does NOT and I think that's a false advertisement to state that it has the complete third season and not include that episode.

It was quite a trip back in 1986 when Pee Wee Herman(aka Paul Reubens) first graced our Saturday mornings on TV at 10AM to invite us in to his playhouse and his unique world.Toned down considerably from the act that he had honed in different venues(more mature material),Reubens brought a totally unique vision to his audience.Children were certainly his primary target and audience considering the time and content of his show,but he also struck home with the parents as many of his jokes and routines they could also easily relate to.His character was an amalgam of retro kitsch and sensibilities with a modern twist.If the youngsters weren't hip to his older sayings like"I know you are but what am I?",they very quickly did.Each show had a lesson to teach through his interaction with either his playhouse playmates and/or the frequent visitors that would come and go.He talked at his audience,never AT them,and it was all rolled and served up in such a fun and delightful manner,that it went down like a spoonful of sugar.
Reubens' character was very child-like,similar to a young mischievious boy.As a result he had an instant and eager rapport with his audience.This remained from the first eps to the last ones.That is why it is no surprise that this show won an incredible 22 Emmy Awards;no mean feat and well deserved.
Pee Wee continues his educational fun time in this the second set of eps from 1988-1990,the final shows.Even though there were quite a few personnel changes over the series run,the shows' basic humour and warmth never wavered and there is much in these final eps to keep one endlessly entertained.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
This poor rating is based solely on the quality of the picture and the sound. The episodes look and sound as if they were transferred from an old video tape. Read more

Any news on the promised Megaset?
I looked at Tower Direct and eBay and it does not show up. I think whoever made these box sets of Pee-Wee's Playhouse has given up on doing the Special Megaset that was "promised". The reason i think this is, is because it has been 2 1/4 yrs since the mention of the megaset. Will be 3... Read More
