When Pee Wee’s beloved bike is stolen, he goes on a cross-country trip to the Alamo because a “physic” tells him it’s there. On the way, he finds himself in one oddball encounter after another, from posing as an escaped convict’s alibi girlfriend to dancing his way out of a biker brawl in a bar to riding in a big-rig with cackling Large Marge (one year after her death). With so much going on, Pee Wee’s adventure could be a Hollywood movie.

"Everything about Pee-wee's Big Adventure, from its toy-box colors to its superb, hyperanimated Danny Elfman score to the butch-waxed hairdo and wooden-puppet walk of its star and mastermind, Pee-wee Herman, is pure pleasure."- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Inspired lunacy, Pee-wee's big adventure is one of the most inventive films in recent memory. This clever and wholly original work incorporates a wide variety of cinematic tools with a fresh and unique sense of style."- TV Guide Magazine
