Pee-Wee dressed as Superman!

Episode PlotEdit

Pee-wee Herman plays with the magic glasses when Miss Yvonne arrives and has him guess who it is. Thanks to Conky, Pee-wee shows us that today's secret word is "one". Pee-wee then does a trick with a penny. Miss Yvonne does interpretative dancing to the Puppet Band's story. Pee-wee meditates, only to soon fall asleep; he dreams he is a Superman-type superhero saving Miss Yvonne from being crushed by a barbell. Globey wakes up Pee-wee and announces that it's snack time. Pee-wee decides to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a snack, but he has no bread; so Miss Yvonne says she will make some. The King of Cartoons visits the playhouse; when he smells the bread baking in the oven, he smiles and says there is nothing he likes more than the smell of hot fresh bread. He then adds that it reminds him of when he was the Prince of Cartoons and would have some bread every morning.

While he was telling Pee-wee and Miss Yvonne a story about when he was a little prince, Randy, wanting the bread to get done faster, turns up the temperature to 700 degrees. Pterri warns him he's not supposed to touch the oven, otherwise the bread will get a terrible burn! After the cartoon is over, Herman and Yvonne are playing golf, and Pee-wee scores a hole-in-one. Everyone screams, but Pterri screams in panic ("Pterri, that's enough screaming to the secret word!") when he sees smoke pouring out of the oven; a fire alarm bell rings loudly, and everyone in the Playhouse panics.

The fire department arrives and Fireman Frank shows them the burnt bread; when Miss Yvonne reacts in shock at seeing the bread, Fireman Frank says "Too bad, I love homemade bread." Miss Yvonne tells Pee-wee that she set the oven to 350 degrees, but Frank says some naughty person turned the oven up to 700 degrees.

Randy appears, asking if the bread is ready. Pee-wee says "No, Randy, the bread is burned because someone turned the temperature way up in the oven! Got any ideas on who might've done something stupid like that?!" Randy says he did it. Herman sternly tells Randy not to touch the oven ever again. Randy apologizes. He's about to go get another bread, but Herman doesn't care about the bread anymore; he cares about the safety of everybody in the Playhouse. Fireman Frank gives Herman and the viewers at home tips on safety in the event of a fire.

TriviaEdit

  • Miss Yvonne and The King of Cartoons visit in this episode.
  • Wheel of Fortune is parodied by the Food in Refrigerator in this episode. The show is instead called Wheel of Pizza. Gameplay is, for the most part, the same as the show it's spoofing; included is a puzzleboard made of ice cube trays. An asparagus with female features does Vanna's job turning the letters, but the letters appear as if the puzzleboard is being operated automatically as originally intended by Ed Flesh. The letters on the puzzleboard mistakenly spell out PEABUT NUTTER, so the ice cubes switch the B and N's places in the puzzle. Normally on Wheel, you first have to tell the host "I'd like to solve the puzzle" for this to occur.
  • When Pee-wee is guessing who is over, he guesses Mrs. Steve, even though she hasn't been seen since Season 1. Everyone else but Mrs. Rene, Tito and Dixie are guessed.
  • Stephen Parr played Fireman Frank.
  • A Penny cartoon was shown in this episode.
  • When Pterri makes the wish, he calls Jambi "Zombie." He says Jambi's name correctly in Front Page Pee Wee.
  • Pee-wee and Miss Yvonne dance during the King of Cartoons arrival song, and almost kiss in Pee-wee's dream. Fans often pair them up as a romantic couple in fan fiction and fan art.
