Trivia Edit

  • Curtis was absent for most of season 1, likely because he was filming A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors at the time. The film stara Wes Craven as Freddy Krueger.
  • When Laurence auditioned for the role of Curtis, he saw him as a dark and gritty character equivalent to a black John Wayne. Paul Reubens said to Laurence after the audition to "lighten up".
  • In The Pee-wee Herman Show (on Broadway), Curtis is played by Phil LaMarr instead of Laurence Fishburne. Phil LaMaar is mostly well known for his role as Hermes Conrad in Futurama, his role as Wilt in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, the voice of Aquaman and Green Lantern John Stewart in Injustice 2, and as the voice of Kotal Kahn in Mortal Kombat X.
