Looking back, Pee-wee’s Playhouse was some crazy shit.
In Gary Panter’s words, “For the Pee Wee sets we try to put the viewer in a three-dimensional collage of American kitsch and painting styles of many eras. Though the sets are very chaotic there are really many composed visual elements; color, texture, scale and material. We wanted to create a place where there are great objects and shape compositions everywhere the camera might point. We needed to make a place that would have room for the cast and crew to do their jobs and was exciting to be in.”
