    Tried to watch this last night on HBO. I got to about the 20 minute mark, and just couldn't take it anymore. Was a fun watch for the nostalgia of it all, but after that it just got creepy.

    I just finished watching it and loved it. I was a huge fan of his first HBO show in the early 80s. I've probably seen it 20 times. I was also a huge fan of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and his Saturday morning Playhouse show. I thought it was really great to see this new show with all the old characters. Only sad thing was that Captain Carl could not be there. :(

    +1 to all of that except for the loving it part. I was excited to see the playhouse, but there was too much repeated material from his first HBO special IMO.

    Fan from the Playhouse show back in the day, I'm traveling and have HBO in my hotel and caught this last night. While it put a smile on my face to see such a faithful recreation of the Playhouse, I just didn't get into this nor did I find it funny at all. Too bad. :(
