Top 5 Pee Wee Herman Moments

Paul Reubens, best known for his Pee Wee Herman character, is a cultural icon.  Here are some of the reason why:

5: Pee Wee is watching his appearance in the movie based on his life, and he gets his big line: "Paging Mr. Herman, Mr. P. W. Herman you have a telephone call."

4: Pee Wee got caught, peewee in hand in an adult theater.  For quite some time after, he was the butt of many a joke.  For a lesser man, it would have been a career killer.  Pee Wee appeared in front of a huge crowd on MTV; after the applause died down, he simply said: "Heard any good jokes lately?"

3: So this happens, then Pee Wee walks into a diner and says, "Large Marge sent me," and the place grinds to a halt.

2: Tequila!  (Check out the look on his face when he knocks over the bikes!)

1: Few remember that Paul Reubens was in Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie (few may remember there even was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie!).  He plays a vampire and he gets staked, leading to the best vampire death ever.

Here's a strong contender for worst Pee Wee moment.  Pee Wee, in advance of his Broadway show, made an appearance on WWE's Raw, where it was revealed that he is The Big Show's cousin, and where he feuds briefly with one of the lamest wrestling personalities--The Miz.  This is so poorly done, Pee Wee must be embarrassed--and he once got caught "mastering his domain" in a theater--that's some kind of embarassment!
