Pee-wee Herman and Andy Samberg do shots

I was all set to love this latest SNL Digital Short, “Andy and Pee-wee’s Night Out”, featuring Andy Samberg and Pee-wee Herman.  Sadly, I didn’t.  It was mildly amusing, but fell pretty flat.  Tell me if I’m crazy here:

Now look, I loved Pee-wee’s Playhouse as a kid, and loved the first Pee-wee movie.  But other than the warm nostalgia of seeing Paul Reubens in character again, this just didn’t connect with me.  Yeah it was neat that they did the “Tequiladance, but I think I’ve been ruined for obligatory pop culture references by watching one too many crappy Family Guy episodes.

Chairry yelling “get the f*** off of me!” to Anderson Cooper was excellent, though.

  • It’s like most of the SNL shorts – you can almost see how it might have been good, but the cast and writers just aren’t funny. Although I did laugh at the Anderson Cooper “prank”.
