Episode PlotEdit

Herman plays with a bilboquet (ball-and-cup) game but fails, so Yvonne plays one later when she visits. Conky shows home movies of his family. Herman's things are mysteriously disappearing and he questions his friends about the disappearances. A man named Busby—apparently new to the neighborhood—ends up taking them without Herman's permission, and decides to return them before Herman can find out about their disappearances. Busby learns that in order to make friends, he should just be himself and not be like another person.


  • Miss Yvonne visits in this episode.
  • Conky's family is revealed in this episode.
  • Dwarf actor Leslie Jordan played Busby and Max Robert played The Organist.
  • This is the last episode where El Hombre is shown.
  • When Conky is describing his grandfather, he says the word around, and no one screams (probably out of respect).
    • Despite the fact that Conky is present at the interrogation, Herman does not question him, Magic Screen or Globey.
  • When Pee-wee goes in the refrigerator, the food is watching a clip from "Big Top Pee-wee", a movie that was made during Season 2's development. The movie was less successful than Big Adventure, only bringing in a return of $15 million. To this day, the movie is considered one of Paul Reubens' biggest embarrassments.


  • Secret word: around
  • Connect-the-dots: none (aborted since all of Pee-wee's dots except one were stolen)
  • Snack: Kellogg's Corn Flakes (aborted because Pee-wee's cereal bowl and spoon were taken)
  • Wish: none
