On July 29, 1991, Paul Reubens (the actor who gave us Pee-Wee Herman off Pee-Wee's Playhouse) was arrested at the South Trail Cinema for exposing himself in the lobby in Florida.
Effects on Pee-Wee
- CBS had to pull Pee-Wee's Playhouse off the air in July of 1991.
- All Pee-Wee Herman merchandise are removed from retail shops (Including Toys R Us)
- Every Pee-Wee Herman cameo had to be censored or replaced (For example the Sesame Street song Put Down the Duckie originally had Pee-Wee Herman in the celebrity version, After his arrestment, His cameo was removed and replaced with Phil Donahue during the summer rerun of the 22nd season of Sesame Street).
