Paul Reubens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (945 words)
Originally, Reubens imbued "Pee-wee" with a sexuality that was later toned down as the character made the transition from raucous night club to children's television (though sexual innuendo was still readily apparent, especially with the "Cowboy Curtis" segments; Curtis was played by actor Laurence Fishburne).
Warner Bros. presented him with a refurbished 1940s Schwinn; Reubens then abandoned the Pee-wee Herman script he was writing in favor of one about Herman's love for his bike and his efforts to locate it once it's stolen.
The news media went into a frenzy and the scandal marked the near death of the character "Pee-wee Herman." Although the series Pee-wee's Playhouse had already ended by that time, CBS reacted by dropping its reruns from their lineup.
