* HarmfulToHitchhikers: Subverted. Early on in his journey, Pee Wee hitches a ride with Mickey, who is quickly established as an escaped convict. However, he never harms Pee Wee and even lets him drive. When Pee Wee almost crashes the car, he still doesn't kill him but instead forces him to find new transportation; Mickey isn't ''entirely'' sure what Pee Wee swerved to miss, but he knows it isn't Pee Wee's fault, knowing how utterly harmless Pee Wee is - he just doesn't want any more of the zaniness.
