The Pee-wee Herman Show is an award-winning HBO-produced stage show created and developed by Paul Reubans in 1981. The show targeted an adult audience and included many sexual innuendos. However, the childlike character on the show, Pee-wee Herman, received wide popularity and spun off the children's classics, Pee-wee's Big Adventure and Pee-Wee's Playhouse. Pee-Wee's Playhouse ran from 1986 to 1990 on CBS, starring Paul Reubens as the main character.
