    One of the great characters of the 80's, right up there with Mr. T and Max Headroom. The innocent Pee Wee is the 80's precursor to the 90's Forrest Gump, where good fortune follows sincerity even without a shred of intelligence. Whereas Forrest did it all to win his lovely Jenny, Pee Wee's Adventures revolve around the search for his beloved bicycle. Giant doughnuts, dinosaurs, truck stops, fortune tellers, bow ties, and the Alamo all play their unique parts in this absurdist comedy.

    Completely silly and obnoxious. Unless you are really bored, don't watch this. Even if you are really bored, still consider doing something else.

    So dumb it makes me cringe to think I ever watched it the whole way through.
