There are quick a few shows I used to watch as a child that still bring back memories, either because I loved the show itself, loved the characters on the show, or loved listening to the theme song. (Dallas for that theme song—or The Wonder Years—none of us can ever forget those, right?) Of course, one of the shows I remember watching as a child was Pee-wee's Big Adventure. How fun (and ridiculous!) was that show? I remember I'd watch it with my friends whenever we had play dates.
Well, Pee-wee is back—again—and this time, a different generation of children are watching. This time, Pee-wee is back and he's not in his familiar surroundings anymore—no more small-time routine for Pee-wee!
Pee-wee's Big Holiday started streaming on Netflix in March, and in this movie he meets a mysterious stranger, Joe Manganiello. After that, Pee-wee goes on a very big adventure where all sorts of crazy, unexpected things happen to him.
We had a little viewing party at home (thanks to Netflix for supplying all the goodies that kept my children interested the entire time!) and the boys loved it. My eight year old was especially hooked and watched the entire movie right before bed one night. It made me smile thinking of the years that I used to watch Pee-wee. This was a great movie, with a lot of fun that kept the kids entertained the entire time. A little action, a little adventure, and a whole lot of typical Pee-wee fun.
If you're not sure what to stream next for your family, make it a fun movie night—make sure you've got the popcorn and candy ready—and get lost in fun Pee-wee adventure that's sure to make you smile, laugh, and remember your younger days.
