Pee Wee's Big Adventure (1985)

Can't believe this movie is thirty years old now.  I was familiar with the now legendary Pee-Wee Herman Show special from HBO or whatever cable channel used to air it, which still is great fun now.  I wondered how this would translate to the big screen, and they did a great job of it, forgoing some elements from the special that would later make it back into the Saturday morning series, such as Jombi and the talking animals.

But they wisely maintained Pee-Wee as the same character.
