Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) had it made in the 1980’s. He had his own TV shows for kids that included Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-wee. Pee-wee’s Playhouse even won Emmy Awards. But in 1991 Reubens was arrested for masturbating publicly in an adult theater.
After that incident, Pee-Wee Herman lost his TV shows and toy deals. Reubens himself kept himself out of the spotlight since. But he has risen again into the spotlight by joining Twitter as twitter.com/peeweeherman. So far Reubens has over 37,000 followers and is following 4 people including Nicole Richie and LeVar Burton, the man behind Reading Rainbow.
Pee-Wee Herman’s first tweet was “I’m back! Follow Pee-wee! Someone who RT’s this gets a phone call from me tonight! #peewee.” Perhaps he misses the limelight a bit.
