    One thought on “Inside Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Untold, Unauthorized, and Unpredictable Story of a Pop Phenomenon”

    1. Not as engaging I was hoping I imagine this is for the super fan Lots of tedious info I found to be a bit dry, though The bits on set design and puppet creation were much appreciated The final quarter of the book is a handy episode guide case you re ever wondering what the secret word of the day was on season two episode six.

    2. I grew up watching and loving Pee wee s Playhouse, so I was pretty excited about reding this, especially with the tagline Untold, Unauthorized, and Unpredicatable What I found in this was a short piece of boring garbage Even as a fan there was nothing worth really learning about Pee wee Herman or the show in this book.The author, Caseen Gaines, spends most of the book tiptoeing around some of the serious issues that might have plagued Pee wee s Playhouse, like Pee wee himself There is not a neg [...]

    3. It definitely feels like this book only reveals the tip of the iceberg as far as Reubens polarizing effect on his colleagues To other reviewers who claim no one has anything negative to say about him, I wonder if we actually read the same book Halfway through, I told my husband, Sometimes reading this book is like watching a bunch of toddlers throw mudballs at each other, and we agreed we re both glad we re not in show business.It does read a bit like an extended entry with a Pee wee fan blog ta [...]

    4. For a generation of children who were born in the 1980s, Pee Wee s Playhouse was THE destination on Saturday mornings in front of the television As a youngster, who couldn t get excited about the man child Pee Wee s exuberance for life and being surrounded by such an eclectic group of characters This book recalls some of the stories behind the Playhouse walls.The meat of this book centers on how Paul Reubens turned his little comedy sketch routine into one of the most well loved kids TV shows of [...]

    5. This was an excellent little guide to the origins and inner workings of the development of one of the most under appreciated programs that ever aired on television and one that ended up becoming extremely controversial in its own right This book contains the origins of the stage show with the Groundlings, the financial and pre production development of the first season, the translation from Big Adventure the silver screen into the show, and then back again Big Top , the move from NY to LA, the e [...]

    6. As someone who wrote a book on a uncooperative subject Andy Griffith , I know that many are quick to criticize biographies or pop culture histories without input from the key player In this case, Paul Reubens did not contribute to this book about the making of Pee wee s Playhouse, but it seems like the lion s share of behind the scenes folks were happy to discuss their creative past with the author Is this a perfect book on the making of No, not even close Then again, I m currently spoiled since [...]

    7. A decently engaging overview of the hit children s show and it s impact on American culture For an unauthorized book, the author goes out of their way to sidestep some of the controversial aspects of Pee wee I guess this is a missed opportunity, although perhaps those stories have less to do with the television show than a reader might think I got the feeling while reading this that Inside Pee wee s Playhouse is probably not a great book for super fans of the show or the character, but as someo [...]

    8. I was pretty impressed with the detail of the set design and production, but the issues and drama were definitely glossed over Apparently Paul Reubens will be coming out with a memoir soon so this will have to do I was excited to read about all of the characters I grew up with without having to watch the show although I watch the Christmas special every year, and Pee Wee s Big Adventure every few years, I recently checked it out on Netflix and deemed it obnoxious about 5 minutes in Sorry, inner [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book because I m a big fan of Pee wee, but as stated before there was nothing scandalous in this book The conflicts that were discussed were presented as arguments There was no new information about Pee wee s arrest There was time spent on the details of the puppets than anything controversial This reads like a fact book and I d only recommend it to people who are big fans.

    10. I enjoyed the book overall I would have liked in depth interviews with the behind the scenes people writers puppeteers artists More backstage or production drawings designs would have dressed it up too.If you are a fan of the show, or Pee Wee in general, you ll enjoy it Worth borrowing from the public library.

    11. Great little read to find some interesting history about the show and the characters The only bad thing is that I was thirsty for While there was a lot I learned I felt there was a lot not being discussed I found the information about the original stage show and Big Top Pee Wee to be the juiciest bits Love this show to this day Go Pee Wee Can t wait to see you again

    12. another great Caseen Gaines read I ve now read all 3 of his books Great insight into what went on behind the scenes, including the moving of the show from NY to LA after Season 1 for TV junkies some truly great stuff highly recommended

    13. Despite Paul Reuben s lack of participation in the writing of this, it still came out pretty great Definitely gives you a look into the shows inner workings and drama Pee Wee stepped on a couple toes to get where he ended up.

    14. A great exploration of the behind the scenes workings of my favorite show from childhood Touches on all things Pee Wee from beginnings to the movies show to the recent Broadway revival.

    15. reading it triggered the theme song to play nonstop in my head for awhile i m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad one

    16. For what it was, a surface assessment of Paul Rueben s character s rise and fall, it was lacking As a fanboy s patchwork quilt, it won t keep you warm for long.

    17. There are some nice anecdotes and background info, but overall it s pretty fluffy The episode guide feels superfluous Not having access to Reubens for interview is a shame.

    18. Earnest and interesting, it reads like a final class project of a die hard fan Nothing earth shattering revealed some fun photos and a detailed episode guide included.

    19. A good insider s look into a beloved show The author obviously likes Paul Reubens, but didn t shy away from addressing problems and things that might make him seem unlikeable.

    20. Felt like there was little or no reason for this book, other than making known all of the people who worked on the show other than Paul Reubens.

    21. A great book for Pee wee fans who want to reminisce about the show Includes an episode guide and the history of the show 5 stars

    22. Very insightful look at Pee wee and the Playhouse TV show I will always be a Pee wee fan and this book reminded me of why
