…I took my cousin Alex’s senior photos.

In return, I got this:

Pee-wee Colorforms!

With all of the pieces still intact!

Thanks to Teri and Alex for the awesome payment.

Totally worth it,

…for this amazing birthday gift of an original, two-sided Gary Panter sketch featuring Pee-wee Herman and some of the Playhouse gang.

A Gary Panter...

...frickin' original. Whoa.

I am truly not worthy,

…was gonna guess our baby’s name.

Surprised that Amazing Larry wasn't on the list.

I sense a definite theme.

We’re watching 1968’s The Boston Strangler. In it, there’s a character named Attorney General Edward W. Brooke. The actor (shown below on the right) looked extremely familiar to me, but I couldn’t place him.

William Marshall: Attorney General Edward W. Brooke

After a quick IMDb search, I found out he was played by actor William Marshall, who was also known as Blacula.

William Marshall: Blacula

But that’s not what Marshall is best known for. For five seasons, Marshall played the King of Cartoons on Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

Last week, I had an opportunity to attend a press event that was held to promote the upcoming live stage performance of “The Pee-wee Herman Show” which will be hitting Club Nokia here in Los Angeles next month.

I originally posted this short blurb and photo, but this is the full scoop, folks!

First, here’s the roundtable interview. It’s in two parts because YouTube has a ten-minute limit on videos. What you can’t see in the video is, to the right of Pee-wee there is a small six-year-old boy. His father brought him along to the interview because he is a huge fan of the show. It makes me feel good that kids can still appreciate a show I was obsessed with over two decades ago.

…about the interesting day I had, but if any picture is worth a thousand words, this one is:

Two out of three ain’t bad, huh?
