Happy birthday, Paul Reubens! On this day, good ol’ Pee-wee Herman turns 60. Can you believe it? Sixty! To honor this once-in-Pee-wee’s-lifetime occasion, we should all blast this song, find one of these to stand on, and proceed to dance like this. Got it? Good. Or, if your busy grownup Monday won’t lend time for such shenanigans, go ahead and whip up some ice cream soup and watch Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (which is pretty much the best movie ever). Or, if you don’t even have time to watch Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, just click through our handy Pee-wee birthday photo gallery. After the jump, you’ll find 15 records of Pee-wee Herman looking serious. Why? Well — why not? It’s pretty rare that Pee-wee is serious, so we’ve rounded up the few strange things that apparently merit Pee-wee’s seriousness. Check ‘em out, and hit the comments to tell us your Pee-wee tales. If you’re anything like this author, the man taught you how to make prank phone calls, and that’s the type of thing you will never forget.
He is serious about school picture day.
