‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ Synopsis

If you put the words “Pee-wee” and “Adventure” in the title of a movie, will IMDb list the film as an adventure/comedy? You bet it will!

1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure finds Pee-wee Herman as the title character, with an indelible ‘Puer Aeturnus’ complex that rivals Michael Jackson’s, on the search for his most prized possession; a red and white Schwinn DX, that has just been stolen by his neighbor, Francis Bux-TON.

Dottie the hottie, who services Pee-wee’s bike and whom would like to service Pee-wee himself, is unable to console him. A rainy night later, finds Pee-wee wandering the water-filled streets to the psychic, Madame Ruby where for twenty dollars she can tell you a lot of things; for thirty dollars she can tell you more, and for fifty dollars, she can tell you everything.

I have been given similar offers before, but it didn’t involve that type of medium. Madame Ruby convinces Pee-wee that his bike has been taken to the basement of the Alamo (he must have paid the fifty dollars), and Pee-wee hitchhikes it out of California to San Antonio, Texas.
