Dad's Collection: Peewee Herman

Some of you may have noticed a little poll on the old blog, "What should I be for Halloween?" Well, the costume idea that won out in the end was Pee-Wee Herman! Hurray! Well, sadly, I couldn't for the life of me find a grey suit, a red bow tie, or a nice white pair of dress shoes for a decent Peewee costume. I feel like I totally jipped my loyal readers! I'm so sorry! Can you all ever forgive me!?

I apologize!!!...forgiven???

Man, Pee-Wee's house is so awesome! He doesn't care what time of year it is, he celebrates every holiday all at once. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure is just an amazing movie, I need to buy a copy already, what's wrong with me!

It's too bad, but my wife is absolutely terrified of Pee-Wee and hates him with a passion. So, maybe it's a good thing I wasn't able to get a costume together. 

So, to make it up to you, I decided to feature my Dad's vintage Pee-Wee Herman figure! That's just as cool, right?

The background looks like it's to scale with Pee-Wee! So weird, but cool!


  1. AMAZING. Big Top Pee Wee is my favorite!!! The egg salad sandwich scene, ha ha ha!!! Love it.
    Still to this day won't have nothin to do with egg salad, so gross!
    You're dad needs his own blog, apparently ;) You should press it on him.

    1. I've only seen the first 10 minutes or so of Big Top Pee-Wee. I really need to remedy that and finish it! Funny thing is my wife LOVES egg salad sandwiches. They're alright.

      I know, I really need to show my Dad the blogging ropes! He's way way into Pinterest, but I think it would be totally sweet if he had a blog too. Then we could read each others blog and it would be grand! I know he reads my blog, so Dad, if you're reading this, you should totally start a blog! You could call it "Dad's Cool Toys n' Stuff" or something. Do it! I'll show you how, it's easy! :)

    2. And I will read your blog, Mr. Mason's dad.
      Thank you, sir. ;)

  2. This is awesome. I love Pee-Wee, and dressed up as him when I was 8. Yes, I resembled him quite a bit as a kid. It's pretty cool that your dad owned that doll.

    1. That's so cool! Do you have any old pictures of you as Pee-Wee? It's crazy how much the doll resembles Pee-Wee. Yeah, my Dad has tons of cool stuff you'd never guess he owns! As far as collecting goes I learned from the best!
