Format: Blu-ray
These new discs are much, much better than I anticipated. I directly compared episode on the old dvds to the new blu ray and the differences were staggering. Much better focus (the dvd looks almost as bad as a VHS tape), more natural colors, better sound. The bonus documentaries are also very interesting.

My only real complaint is that it took me several minutes just to get the disc cases out of the outer box. I'm not sure why they made the box fit so snugly, but I've never struggled so much just to extract a disc's case from an outer box. I surely didn't want to damage a new item this expensive, so I took my time inserting a credit card between the disc cases and the inside of the box, slowly loosening things up. I'm now afraid to put the discs back in the outer case since I don't want to deal with that hassle every time I want to watch a show.

As to the show, I assume that if you're looking at the reviews for this set that you're already a fan. For me, Pee Wee's Playhouse is one of a very few shows that is entertaining for children of all ages. It's as fun to watch today as it was back in the late '80s when I was in my twenties.

I cant believe how great this look! The original film they shot on was used for this transfer and it truly looks like it was made yesterday. The special features are really well produced and entertaining. This set is a little pricey, but it's truly worth it. I sit in my lonely little bedroom watching episode after episode and I almost forget that I long for death.

Great set, but the box is wrong about the video. It is NOT presented in 1080p, but rather 1080i. Some sets (and PCs especially) may not look as great with this interlaced picture as they would the progressive scan you get with 1080p/24. It is however a great set, and looks great on the right equipment. I just wish manufacturers would check with the encoders (who they paid tons of money to for the job I'm sure) before slapping some random information about the video on the box. They got the aspect ratios right, not sure why they got the encoding wrong.

1080i is a 60hz interlaced signal, while 1080p is a 24hz progressive signal. While this show was shot on film at 24 frames/sec, it was edited in standard def (480i 60hz). Since it probably used some footage from 480i sources, they probably went with 1080i to preserve the faster frame rate and not make those things look weird.

I grew up knowing this series with all it quirks and eccentricities. While this series was definitely cutting edge and something that always brought a smile on my face, my kids had never heard of this series at all. With that in mind we sat down to watch this and at first I think my girls did not know what to think of Pee Wee, but as the show continued they were laughing continuously. There is something unique about what Paul Reubens did with this character and this is why he became such a favorite of so many. In watching this again the one thing that I was struck by were the number of people that got their start on this show as I just did not remember this from before. SOme of the people that I saw included people like: S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurence Fishburne, Natasha Lyonne, the late Phil Hartman, Jimmy Smits, Sandra Bernhard, Dweezil Zappa (wrote the music for one of the episodes), John Singleton (PA), Rob Zombie (PA) and it had musicians like: Mark Mothersbaugh, Todd Rundgren, Herbie Hancock, Danny Elfman, George Clinton and more.

The show was also forward thinking and had a number of technological marvels of the day that were not even thought of back then. Things like the Magic Screen which is equivalent of a giant tablet or today’s smart TV; Picturephone which is equivalent to video conferencing today, etc.

This show was and is a show that will last a long time in the cultural history of our nation and I am glad that I was able to share this with my kids too!

I remember watching Pee-wee's Playhouse when I was a kid, and seeing it again brought back so many fun memories. The talking furniture like Chiarry, the Spinx head, the genie, the mail lady--all characters I hadn't thought about in years. I felt like I was connecting with long lost friends. Pee Wee's zany antics had me grinning from ear to ear, and my children loved watching it with me.

This DVD set includes all 45 episodes of the show and some fun extras like interviews and behind the scenes footage. Of course there's also lots of screaming and quotes like "I know you are but what am I." Complete episode list includes:

1 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Ice Cream Soup
2 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Luau For Two
3 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Rainy Day
4 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Now You See Me, Now You Don’t
5 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Just Another Day
6 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Beauty Makeover
7 Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Restaurant
8 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Ants In Your Pants
9 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Monster In The Playhouse
10 Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Cowboy And The Cowntess
11 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Stolen Apples
12 Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Gang's All Here
13 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Party
14 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Open House
15 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Puppy In The Playhouse
16 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Store
17 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Pee-wee Catches Cold
18 Pee-wee's Playhouse: Why Wasn't I Invited?
