Pee-Wee Herman Is Gonna Be In A New Movie And I Think I Am Gonna Pass Out

Here's the thing.  When you are a child you begin to take the first steps towards shaping your likes and interests.  Often what you enjoy as a tike comes as your beginning into the world of nostalgia.  You eventually get older,  and what you loved as a young thing continues to hold a special place in your heart.  Sometimes even, you belong to a generation like mine, which currently holds a special place in pop culture.

You see, people these days that create stuff are running out of ideas, and rather than take the hard road of creating/thinking of something new...they just rehash things from the past.  The easy way.

However, in a world of remakes, and re-imaginings, most of which are terrible (looking at you new Robocop) sometimes you get a magical moment where your nostalgia comes back to punch you right in the gut.  Where something you loved intensely as a young girl/boy, gets the reboot and all of that flies out the window because you want to cry you are so happy.

It just happened to me, because Pee-Wee is back!

That's right, my favorite person when I was between the ages of 5-well, right gonna be in a new movie.  And for a person that lists Pee-Wee's Big Adventure as one of his all time favorite films, this is to say the least, exciting.

Pee-wee Herman, the beloved character from surreal children's show Pee-wee's Playhouse and Tim Burton's first feature film, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, is back for a new feature film. Produced by Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids, Knocked Up) and Paul Reubens (the actor who plays Pee-wee), Pee-wee's Big Holiday will premiere on Netflix.

Can you have a heart attack from joy?

The plot sounds simple (and will probably be more or less beside the point).

In Pee-wee's Big Holiday, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.

You don't watch Pee-wee for complex plotting. You watch it for trippy imagery and weirdo animation and Paul Reubens making funny noises.

Stuff like this:

And this:

Oh god, I am gonna go watch Pee-Wee...if you need me I will be trying to guess the secret word all night.

Cannot wait!
