PG | | Adventure, Comedy, Family
When eccentric man-child Pee-wee Herman gets his beloved bike stolen in broad daylight, he sets out across the U.S. on the adventure of his life.
The film was released the same year as another Warner Bros. feature film about a man who sets out to recover his stolen vehicle, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985).
Look out, Mister Potato Head!
Near the end of Pee-Wee's chase scene at the Warner Bros. studios, he activates a launch mechanism on his bike and soars over a barb wire fence onto a roof; a crew member wearing sunglasses can be briefly seen on the lower right hand side of the screen.
Even though it's not listed in the case, there are deleted scenes not in the theatrical nor video release in the DVD version.
