Paul Reubens himself has been summoned from the depths of infamy to supervise the restoration of the original Pee-Wee’s Playhouse series frame by frame. The very first Blue-ray release of the series will be the result, this masterpiece of campy excellence set for release across the United States starting on October 21st, 2014.
It was announced earlier this year that Shout! Factory attained the distribution rights for Pee-wee’s Playhouse, letting it be known that they would do god’s work in creating the first Blu-ray collection as was their duty. This Blu-ray collection includes the entire Pee-wee’s Playhouse collection, all 45-episodes, as well as the Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special.
Pee-wee’s Playhouse “The Complete Series” will include 8-Blu-ray disks, rolling out with additional “bonus content” as well. As soon as we find out what that bonus content is, we’ll let you know! Hopefully something Jambi-related. The full box set will cost you a cool $149.99 USD – or $129.99 right this minute if you’re all about an Amazon pre-order… or $120.99 through the Shout! House straight up.
The Shout! House is also bringing the heat through ShoutFactory.com with free standard US Shipping. Standard, but early – two weeks earlier than any other shipping point, starting on 10/7/2014!
The quality of this Blu-ray release is going to look a LOT better than what you’re seeing above.
The same day as the Blu-ray release, two DVD sets will be sent out as well. These will be Pee-wee’s Playhouse: Seasons One and Two. We’ve reached out to Shout! House for more details – stick around and we’ll be updating as soon as possible!
