Holiday Wish Guide: Pee-wee’s Playhouse on Blu-ray and DVD


This article is more than 10 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

Holiday Wish GuideReleased for the first-time-ever on Blu-ray this Fall in an 8-disc Complete Series box set, along with a 4-disc Complete Seasons One & Two DVD set (which I have) Pee-wee’s Playhouse is just as delightfully bizarre as you probably remember it from the first time around… perhaps even more so. Riding the retro wave, Pee-wee Herman and friends look better-than-ever, fully remastered from the original film elements in painstaking detail by the team at Shout! Factory. Re-watching the show as a parent nearly 30 years later (I watched it regularly when it made it’s debut on CBS in 1986), it’s interesting to see just how Paul Reubens managed to work kid-friendly, positive messages and even educational elements (Pee-wee ended up doing a guest shot on SESAME STREET) into the zany confines of the Playhouse – racking up numerous awards, including nearly two dozen EMMYS.


Rock Father Approved!While I’ve been enjoying Pee-wee’s Playhouse here in my office for some late-night viewing, I did show the girls a couple of episodes and found Addie (my oldest) quite captivated at age 5. I wouldn’t recommend a full-on binge for the children of 2014 (I limit screen time, anyway), but Pee-wee’s Playhouse is a ton of fun, and a Rock Father-approved addition to my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.

Available from Shout! Factory, Amazon and other retailers.
