Paul Reubens (b. 1952) is an actor best known for playing "Pee-wee Herman" in a stand-up act, three movies and his TV show, Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
In 1986, he received an "Honorary Muppet Award" in Muppet Magazine issue 14. He appeared on the magazine's cover again in 1987, in issue 17. He had previously been paired with Robin the Frog for "The Second Great Muppet Look-Alike Contest" in issue 5.
In 1987, Reubens filmed an insert for Sesame Street as Pee-wee (on the set of Pee-Wee's Playhouse), reciting his own version of the alphabet. He also appeared in the first celebrity version of Put Down the Duckie.
A betting form posted on the door of Pepe's stateroom aboard Disney Cruise Line's ship, the Disney Fantasy, lists Peewee Hermit as one of the competitors in Pepe's Crab Races. The name is a spoof of Reubens' Pee-wee Herman character.
