A screen on rolls that slightly resembled an Etch-A-Sketch, it flashed in an array of colors when not in use; it also showed films, and Pee-wee would frequently jump into the screen itself to interact with a fantasy land inside, usually to "connect the dots". Magic Screen can also function as a tablet with muitple backgrounds, as Pee-Wee and Conky played checkers on Magic Screen's surface. Magic Screen once mentioned having a relative, Movie Screen. In the Pee-wee's Playhouse Christmas Special, Magic Johnson stated that he and Magic Screen were cousins. Magic Screen is addressed as "she" and "her" in the puppeteers' commentary indicating that Magic Screen is actually female.
She has the ability to control the dots that players throw when playing "connect the dots"; this is evidenced in Sick, Did Somebody Say Sick? when she formed them into a prison cell to capture Randy, who went into her to mess around with her.
