YMMV / The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway

  • Cargo Ship: Pee Wee and Chairry. The firefighter and Magic Screen.
    • There's also Magic Screens...ahem..."moment" with Conkey while the lights are off.
    Magic Screen: Ooh...wow...here's the flashlight.
    Conkey: M-m-magic Screen, th-thats not the flashlight! Th-th-that's not the flashlight!
    Magic Screen: Well, that's not my belly button either.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
    • Just the stage reveal of the meticulously re-created playhouse is a moment of awesome. It's like coming home.
    • The foil ball. Two extra decades and dedication can make for an epic foil ball.
    • And then there's this:
    Pee Wee: Why don't you marry her, Chairry? Oh wait, you can't because you're both girls.
    Conky: T-t-they could in Connecticut! New Hampshire! New Jersey! Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Massachusetts! Maine! Vermont! Washington DC! And I-I-I-Iowa!
  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: The aforementioned gay marriage joke, after it became legal all over the United States.
  • Ear Worm: Invoked and discussed, including some of the more infamous examples from advertising ("Ch-ch-ch-Chia!")
  • Nightmare Fuel: Averted. There was concern that the "Ghost of Shamwow" might scare the kids in the audience, but it turned out that they loved that part the most.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Like the original stage show (and, to a lesser extent, the TV show that aired on CBS), this show was a children's show with a lot of risque humor and Parental Bonus moments.
