A few weeks ago, Paul Reubens, also known as Pee-Wee Herman, pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing obscene material.
This is the same guy who was busted for indecent exposure in an adult theater in Florida in 1991.
This is also the same guy who had a brilliant kids’ show on CBS for several years, a hit show on HBO in the early ’80s, and a successful movie in 1985.
I will say that he sucked in “You Don’t Know Jack” a few years ago. The only person aside from the original narrator that could have pulled off that role was David Spade.
Anyway, MSNBC has excerpts from a recent interview, in which he discusses some of what the last dozen years have been like. Great quote: Yeah, I mean, I’m hating to admit that Pee-Wee was healthier than me. But I think in some ways, he was.
On another sad note, Gilligan apparently beat Pee-Wee in a WWWF Grudge Match.
Pee-Wee, I really want to believe that you’re innocent. I really, really do. But it’s tough.
