Pee-wee Herman Returns and Starts Pee-Tweeting
The "re-imagined, re-invented, and nuttier than ever" stage version of 'Pee-wee's Playhouse,' which originally debuted in 1981, will premiere November 8th in Los Angeles. To hype the upcoming play, which will feature a cast of original human characters as well as an assortment of the classic puppets, Paul Reubens (a.k.a., Pee-wee Herman) has been making the publicity rounds.
He has also created a Twitter account so that his eccentric, exuberant alter ego can instantly spread his oddball, wacky fun in 140-character-or-less messages. The first Pee-tweet hit the Net only yesterday, but the Hermanator has already amassed over 13,000 followers, and his appearance has inspired a cacophony of excited tweets. One lucky RTer has even earned a phone call from the fan-friendly manchild in the red bowtie.
While some might chalk it up to a publicity stunt, the return of Pee-wee's familiar antics should still be wholeheartedly welcomed, particularly by the gen-Xers who grew up watching his Playhouse show. Oh, yeah. If you feel like irritating your boss, coworkers, friends, or parents to no end, the secret word of the day is 'Hooray!' Aaaaaahhhhhh!!! [From: Mashable]
