My husband spoke in a Pee-wee Herman voice for an entire year of his life. This is a favorite story of my kids’ – they love to ask my mother-in-law to please tell them about the time Daddy talked like Pee-wee for a year. It was so bad that even the principal of his elementary school asked him to stop.
And while Charles was living out his Pee-wee obsession, I was living out my own. Every Saturday morning before riding lessons, my brother and I sat on the living room floor and watched Pee-wee skip around his playhouse connecting the dots (la la la la!) and calling Cowboy Curtis on his Picturephone (so futuristic, Pee-wee!). We screamed along with the word of the day and laughed till our sides hurt when Pee-wee turned his giant underwear into a swing (that’s STILL funny).
I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, which means I’m a Netflix ambassador and get to share all of my binge watching experiences and television obsessions with you, so you can binge watch, too. Today I’m talking about the new Pee-wee movie and sharing these fun Pee-wee printable popcorn cones with you!
So of course the kids have seen Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, and of course we were all WAY TOO EXCITED when we learned that Pee-wee was returning to the big screen on Netflix with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.
The kids and I had a Pee-wee’s Big Holiday movie watching party. I made these fun popcorn cones, that you can download below, to fill with our favorite popcorn, and we all jumped into bed to watch the movie together.
Print on card stock, cut them out, roll them up, and tape to secure. Easy peasy!
Jack, my oldest, is also a big Pee-wee fan. He belly laughed his way through much of the movie, which is centered around Pee-wee leaving the town of Fairville for the first time. After meeting cool guy Joe Manganiello in the local diner, where Pee-wee makes a mean milkshake, he’s inspired to travel all by himself to New York City for Joe’s birthday party. Adventures and insanity ensue as Pee-wee rushes across the country to be with his new friend.
There’s definitely something magical about Pee-wee and Joe Manganiello enjoying a Rootbeer Barrel together (you’ll just have to see the movie to know what I’m talking about).
The movie is rated PG and although she’s a huge fan of Pee-wee’s Playhouse, Claire (4.5 years old) was a little bit afraid at a couple of different parts of the movie, so if you have a little one that might be afraid, you might want to watch first (“HORRIFYING!” she said when Pee-wee’s faced morphed into something funky during his brief stint in an empty well). Jack, who is seven-years-old, basically laughed through the entire movie.
And now, you can watch Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, or Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, or Pee-wee’s Playhouse with popcorn in a Pee-wee cone. If only sixth-grade Charles, speaking exclusively in Pee-wee for an entire year, could have been so lucky. 😉
You can find Pee-wee’s Big Holiday on Netflix.
