This year, the Shady family decided to go as friends from Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

Grey was the center of attention as the man himself.

Paging Miss Danger.

KB conjured up the spirit of the late, great Phil Hartman as Captain Carl.

That's her real five-o-clock shadow.

I granted wishes as Jambi.

Wish? Did somebody say wish?

And West’s first Halloween costume was Pterri the Pterodactyl.

And Pterri!

Have a Happy Halloween!

But I don’t want to be the Pterri,

PS: I know I’m biased, but last year’s costumes were pretty sweet, too.

…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,

-Shady

…was gonna guess our baby’s name.

Surprised that Amazing Larry wasn't on the list.

I sense a definite theme.

He forgot Billy Baloney,

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.

William Marshall: The King of Cartoons

That’s right, Blacula is the King of Cartoons. Holy shit.

I heard the sound of my brains imploding,

Because this:

Reminds me a lot of this:

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?

I’ll be posting more photos (and a video) from today later in the week, so stay tuned.

Screaming real loud,
