Happy Birthday today to Sarasota's Very Own - "Pee Wee Herman"

Today is Paul Reubens' birthday. He turned 67 today....

Do you remember the two feature films he starred in during the '80s as Pee-Wee Herman?

  1. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure(1985) - Which can be seen on Amazon Prime
  2. Big Top Pee-Wee(1988)

And of course, Netflix gave him his own movie special in 2016... "Pee Wee's Big Holiday"...

Some are not aware that Pee Wee aka Paul Reubens, went to Sarasota High School.. and was a member of the drama department...

His parents, Milton and Judy Rubenfeld, owned a lamp shop in Sarasota; in fact Milton was one of five founding members of the Israeli Air Force.

Here is a great in-depth profile on the star, written in 2016, as his new movie "Pee Wee's Big Holiday" came out on Netflix (which you can still see on Netflix). https://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/14/magazine/pee-wees-big-comeback.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur
