Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Ah, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, how I love you. Yes, Large Marge scared the shit out of me as a kid. Yes, most of the humor went way over my head, but that only lead to repeat viewings being even funnier as I grew up.
I was kind of obsessed with Pee-Wee Herman as a kid. Between this movie and my faithful Saturday mornings spent at his Playhouse (via TV, of course) he was one of my idols. I don’t really give a shit about Teddy Ruxpin anymore and the Ninja Turtles don’t mean as much to me as they used to, but goddamnit if I don’t love Pee-Wee just as much as (if not more than) I did as a kid.
The first movie is a huge part of that, thanks in no small part to the hungry filmmaking of a young Tim Burton, who is in the below photo… looking like a baby, by the way. How was he so young?!?
Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure is one of the great family films of the last half century and I’ll always love it..
