Welcome to No Shame November! This week we're diving into the pop culture we love that society tells us we shouldn't. I like my furniture; I cherish my pets; I would prefer my boyfriend be alive at all times. For months, I feared that the growing animosity I harbored toward my apartment would swallow me and my imaginary security deposit whole.
Oddly enough, my outlook began to improve. Pee-wee, played by a then something Reubens, is your average kid who happens to own a fantastical playhouse.
Generous with jokes, laughs, and play, Pee-wee and his gang of neighborhood weirdos are easy to like at any age. The rotating cast of characters — ChairryBilly BaloneyJambi the GenieCowntessKnuckleheadthe Puppet Bandand more — provide plenty of opportunities for Pee-wee to be his charming self, while continually introducing new faces to an audience in sudden, desperate need of socialization. I highly recommend the Christmas special featuring Charo and Little Richard.

Cheery sound effects, an earworm of a song, and the infectious giggling of Pee-wee demand a light-hearted, child-like approach to the day.

Earning 15 Emmy Awards in its time, the Saturday morning success turned its regularly rough edges of hand dating, claymation, and early green screen technology into part of its tremendous charm.
Did he For me, has been somewhat like Pee-wee and his Playhouse: a bizarre exercise in rekindling my inner child and appreciating the power my imagination has over my circumstance. And when officials for Los Angeles, where I live, recently reinstated our local curfewI admit I dreamed of setting good 'ol Clocky on fire. Still, there is something spectacular about doing everything in your power to have fun no matter the circumstance.
'pee-wee's playhouse' is a bizarrely perfect pandemic binge
Pee-wee has, at least in part, inspired me to fight for the daily joy of being at home, and encouraged me to find silliness and warmth exactly where I am right now instead of dreaming about how much easier that might be in some other tomorrow. But if this is where I am for now, if this is the part of the world I've been tasked with making funnier and brighter for my partner, pets, family, and friends in a time of dire need?
I am going to enjoy it. Pee-wee's Playhouse is now streaming on Netflix.
