* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Paul Reubens originally auditioned for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' in 1980 (when the original cast members, writers, and Creator/LorneMichaels left, and Jean Doumanian was hired). On the one hand, the idea of Pee-Wee Herman as a recurring character would have made ''SNL'' at the time more palatable (but only if EddieMurphy were never hired). On the other hand, Reubens' career probably would have stalled or never gotten off the ground if he was a cast member during the sixth season (cited by many as the worst season ever), as, outside of EddieMurphy and Creator/GilbertGottfried (and, to a lesser extent, Denny Dillon[[note]]who appeared on such shows as ''Series/NightCourt'' and ''Series/DreamOn'' before retiring from acting to do art and dollhouses[[/note]], Charles Rocket[[note]]who appeared in a lot of supporting roles in TV and movies until his suicide in 2005[[/note]], and Gail Matthius[[note]]whom most kids who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s will remember as a voice actress on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', ''Animaniacs'', ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'', and ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld''. Matthius is now an improv teacher and performer.[[/note]]), nobody from season six went on to lasting fame since they were associated with such a horrible season.

* AsHimself: While portraying his Pee-wee Herman role, Paul Reubens wanted the character wanted to be thought of a real life stand-up comedian who expanded his career by playing himself in films and TV series.\\
It's also worth noting Reubens' ManChild character has been credited as 'Pee-wee Herman' on talk shows as well like ''Series/JimmyKimmelLive'', ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'' and ''Series/EntertainmentTonight''.

Sadly, Reubens' image of Pee-wee Herman was destroyed on July 28, 1991 when he fell victim to a police sting operation while visiting his parents in Sarasota on his summer vacation. Seeking to escape from boredom, Reubens went to catch a showing of X-rated film ''Nurse Nancy'', where he was arrested for sex charges when detectives allegedly saw him [[CaughtWithYourPantsDown playing with his private parts]]. Released on $219 bail, nobody realized what happened until somebody recognized him beneath his long hair and goatee. As a result, {{CBS}} dropped ''Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse'' and related merchandise was released from its shelves. Reubens agreed to pay a $50 fine plus $85 in court costs as well as producing a thirty second public service message for the Partnership for Drug-Free America commercial. As part of the deal, the county sealed all legal papers relating to the actor's arrest, not leaving Reubens with a criminal record.
