Amy & Paul remember the Alamo for 1985’s magnificently silly Paul Reubens showcase Pee-wee’s Big Adventure! They go deep on the conception and evolution of the Pee-wee Herman character, look back on the fallout from Reubens’ public scandals, and dig into Pee-wee’s self-conception as a loner and a rebel. Plus: How Reubens connected with a young Tim Burton and Danny Elfman.
