>> jimmy: okay. >> but we've hired a director. we're going to start in february. >> jimmy: is it steven spielberg? [ cheers ] it might be? >> steven spielberg. >> jimmy: yay! steven spielberg, doing the new pee-wee movie. i'm so excited. >> "pt," it's called "pt." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's close enough. yeah. pee-wee herman, this character -- where does it come from? i know it's from the groundlings. >> yes. i was in an improv group, the groundlings. >> jimmy: i studied there, too. >> i know. >> jimmy: i know. you were one of my idols. i went and worked and i saw pictures of you. i never became an actual groundling. but i took classes, and then i got to "saturday night live." [ laughter ] >> i love that story. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: so what were you doing? just improvising? >> we were doing an improv, an extended improv about a place like the comedy store, the improv, a comedy club. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and we were all supposed to do characters you might see performing at a comedy club. so i, i could never remember punch lines to jokes. so my character was a bad comic who you would never, ever expect to make it.
>> jimmy: yeah. >> and so i just told jokes where i couldn't remember the punch lines and pulled props out of the back. >> jimmy: i didn't know this but you were on the "dating game?" >> yes. >> jimmy: as pee-wee herman? >> yeah. my very first thing i ever did. i was reading the -- paper, the drama log it was called. >> jimmy: the character breakdown. >> it gave you auditions if you weren't, if you didn't have an agent. >> jimmy: yeah, sure. you were looking for gigs. >> so there was a cattle call for "the dating game." and i had just recently developed pee-wee herman and i thought, why not, you know, let's see what happens. so i put my pee-wee outfit on and i went down to a cattle call. there were probably 200 guys, regular "dating game" contestants, and it was the first time i ever knew the power of pee-wee herman. i walked in, and the second i walked in, i could tell every person working there was like, "holy -- oh my god." >> jimmy: this guy's weird, man. we got a good one here. >> but i could tell they were going, like, this guy is on the show. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah.
>> i could tell that. >> jimmy: and you actually made it on the show. here's a picture right here. that's pee-wee herman. >> that's me winning. [ laughter and applause ] that's me winning. >> jimmy: no! >> yeah. >> jimmy: someone chose you? >> i was on three times. i lost twice and then i was on a third time and i won. >> jimmy: you won "the dating game?" >> yeah. >> jimmy: what girl was that? >> we've been married 26 years now. >> jimmy: oh, congratulations. i did not know that. that's so wild. >> no, we actually never got to go on the date. >> jimmy: you didn't? >> no. she got married before we got to go. it had to keep getting postponed and postponed. >> jimmy: gosh, i just love you so much. i can't even tell you how much. i memorized every single line. >> of "the dating game?" >> jimmy: no. [ laughter ] i'm going back to "the dating game." i just love it when they shoot a commercial and stuff. it was great. and then "pee-wee's playhouse," came after the film. i used to watch every saturday morning, watch it and just, one of my favorites, now it's on blu-ray, but even better than this, it was shot on film? >> the show was shot on film and never seen by anyone, including me on film. it was transferred immediately
to tape. >> jimmy: i never knew it was on film. >> and edited on tape, the effects are all done, like five or six generations of compositing and it looks -- we went back to the original film and took every single foot of film and redid every inch of the show. rebuilt all the effects. it took over a year and a half. >> jimmy: we took a screen grab of what you normally would see when you watch it through the clips and what is on the blu-ray. you'll see the difference. it's -- crazy. i mean that's why all the colors pop and everything, it's so wild. it's so fun. and i was, i was listening to howard stern once and rob zombie was on and he said that he worked on "pee-wee's playhouse." >> he always says that, i don't know if that's true or not. >> jimmy: it has to be true. it has to be true. >> i mean why would he make that up? >> jimmy: why would he make that up, you're right. john singleton worked on your show. >> john singleton. i remember very clearly. he was a security guard on a a metal chair in front of the stage. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: danny elfman. obviously great musician. mark mothersbaugh from devo.
a great musician. and cyndi lauper did the theme song? >> yes. >> jimmy: i did not know that at all. >> well cyndi didn't want to be billed, so she's billed under a a pseudonym. but yeah, it's her. >> jimmy: and the christmas special is on here as well? >> the christmas special is on here. >> jimmy: it's my favorite special. you have to -- i watch it every year. >> oh, thank you. >> jimmy: it is the best thing. it is the greatest, oddest -- >> i do have great stars on my christmas special. >> jimmy: it's just insane. when you watch you go, i can't believe it existed. you're a genius. >> thank you. >> jimmy: you're a genius. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. >> jimmy: did you ever see the bit -- of course i'm a fan, i do impressions of pee-wee herman. and get paid for it. >> really? >> jimmy: yes. but we take famous trailers and i revoice the trailers with pee-wee herman's voice. >> you're kidding? no, i know all about this, every time you do it people contact me on twitter and facebook and go, "is that you or jimmy?" i sometimes go like, i don't know, is it me or jimmy? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, you don't know. >> but do you it better than me. >> jimmy: no, i don't. >> yeah, you really do. >> jimmy: no. >> they're considering you to play pee-wee
in the movie. >> jimmy: no they're not. >> no, they are. >> jimmy: no they're no. [ laughter ] >> i hope they're not. >> jimmy: no they're not. >> not that good. >> jimmy: they're not that good, no. well the new trailer for "the avengers" came out a a couple of days ago. it got like 48 million hits on youtube. and so we thought it would be great to actually have the man himself -- pee-wee herman, paul reubens, voice -- revoice the trailer to "the avengers." so earlier today, you went to a a recording booth and laid down a genuine pee-wee herman vocal track so here is the trailer for "avengers: age of ultron" revoiced by pee-wee herman, check it out. ♪ >> it's the end, the end of the path i started us on. nothing lasts forever. ah! there are no strings on me. hee-ee, "avengers: age of ultron." la la la, la la la la.
