Watch a teaser of HBO’s reboot of Pee-wee Herman, plus an extended clip from the original live stage show

HBO has set a date for the new version of Pee-wee Herman's show, straight from Broadway to your TV. The new and improved Pee-wee Herman on Broadway will debut on March 19, 2011. Roll the clip!


And if you're too young to remember the 1970s, then brace yourselves, because director Marty Callner (who filmed the new Pee-wee special, as well as the old) has shared nine minutes of glory from the original show that Paul Reubens and friends put on at The Roxy in L.A. in the late 1970s. Before everyone else knew who Pee-wee Herman was. Look at how young he was! Look at Phil Hartman! Awww.

Roll it!
