Credits pioneer TV children's show host Pinky Lee as a partial inspiration for his character Pee-Wee Herman. Like Reubens, Lee also wore a tight checked suit and hat as part of his characterization.
Look at me, I'm getting defensive about something that happened so many years ago, somebody said. I'll have to find out who that was and if he's still alive.
His most famous role is Pee-Wee Herman, a hyper child-man with slick short hair, who always wore a glen plaid suit that was a size too small with a red bow tie.
