And the Pee Wee Revival Continues…


04-peewee.jpgPaul Reubens, aka Pee Wee Herman, must be loving life right now. First, his kids show from the 1980’s (and, full disclosure, our favorite show as a kid), Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, gets picked up and aired in the post-Y2K era on the Cartoon Network. (And while we’re disclosing things, we always though Pterri, aka “But… Pee-Wee!”, should’ve had his own spin-off show. I mean, if Frasier got one…)

And things are looking better and better for the guy. Now, Nike has commissioned a sneaker after the character! Called the Nike SB “Pee Wee Herman” Dunk Highs, they follow the very color scheme of Pee-Wee’s trademarked grey suit and red bow-tie. And sense of humor not forgotten, the sole of the shoes depicts the event that originally led to Reubens’ downfall: A row of empty theater seats, and at the end, a white guy jackin’ it. Fans of the man and the kicks can pick up a pair sometime in 2007. (Link via The Apiary)
