Comedy actor PAUL REUBEN is reprising his most famous character to make two new PEE-WEE HERMAN movies.
Just months after vowing never to play the kids' favourite again, Reubens is working on two new scripts - the first due for release in 2009, 19 years after he retired the beloved character.
He explains his change of heart to MTV, "I feel like the time is really ripe right now. A lot of the kids who grew up with the show are young adults. The college kids are middle-aged adults. I feel like I have enough of a built-in audience to make back an investment."
