Though ostensibly Reubens' baby, it's famously Creator/TimBurton's director debut and former Music/OingoBoingo frontman Music/DannyElfman's first score for a major motion picture. In fact, the three coming together was somewhat serendipitous: Burton and Reubens were huge fans of the 1982 no-budget cult film ''Film/ForbiddenZone'', which Elfman had scored, and their mutual love for the film not only convinced them to hire Elfman as the composer, but to base the entire film's quirky tone on it. The script was penned by Reubens and the late great Creator/PhilHartman.

* 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 crashes the car and almost kills them, he still doesn't kill him but instead forces him to find new transportation.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: One of the animals sold in the burning pet shop are snakes, which Pee-Wee is rather squeamish about touching. When there's no other animals left to be saved, he grabs as many as he can and runs out of the building screaming.

* PrecisionFStrike: A PG variant, and only shocking because of who's saying it: when Dottie offers an especially emotional Pee-wee a good deal on a new bike, he snaps back at her "I don't want some other crappy bike!"
