Watch Pee-wee Herman's Halloween appearances on David Letterman (1983 and 1984)

I like how Pee-wee slowly breaks Letterman down from his cool detachment into true delight and laughter.


He is a genius. In the second video, he slipped in some subtle social commentary (barbie comics are inane), and he always captures the essence of a precocious child. Dave reacts to it perfectly every time. The annoyed adult, just playing along. And Pee-wee eats it up.
