  1. Okay, so here are my thoughts on this list.

    #banana: As a kid, I thought that Toon Town was pretty cool ’cause everything was trying to kill the main guy, but I actually hated that Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny were together. It just felt wrong that two characters from different cartoons were together when they shouldn’t have ever met due to being from different cartoons.

    #balloon: Never heard of this movie.

    #Z: Never heard of it.

    #toaster: I never knew there was anything other than How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

    #love: Never knew there was anything other than the dolls.

    ##: I’ve heard that there was a cartoon, but never seen it.

    #lamp: I’ve never seen anything Beavis & Butthead.

    #Guttenberg: Loved the scene as a whole better when I was a kid, but I still love his speech.

    #pi: Love this movie. Love this scene. Never saw it as a kid, but saw it for the first time about 5 or 6 years ago and have watched it a bunch since then.

    #piano: Love this movie. Love this scene. Have loved it since I was a kid.

    #theory of relativity: Never saw the show.

  2. I mean did Roald Dahl approval of the psyche-out scene? Has the director ever explained himself? Why was that scene in there? If you needed padding, why use that? There is nothing in the book that would lend itself to that sort of madness!

  3. Fun opening music

    #piano:Funny but pointless
    #theory of relativity:So silly

  4. #Theory of relativity… The best thing? The floor actually DID talk. The show was so effing crazy that your random selection of the one thing that didn’t speak was something that started talking in later episodes. Its name was Floory. Don’t believe there was a Ceilingy or Wally, though. Maybe in the upcoming new Pee Wee movie?

  5. TheNarwhal is correct: the floor did talk. It’s name was “Floory” and he had a raspy almost-ripoff-of-Oscar-the-Grouch kind of voice. We didn’t meet him until (I want to say) the second season when Pee-Wee “redecorated” the playhouse and moved his Indian teepee from one corner to another. Thus he revealed Floory’s face and boom! Instant new character.

    I would just like to point out that I am not proud to know these things. I just do.

    Fun Fact about Number Love:
    The guy who wrote the songs in that movie, Joe Raposo, also wrote songs for “Sesame Street”, “The Great Muppet Caper”, and “Grinch Night”.
    Funny enough, in Season 3 of “The Muppet Show” Helen Reddy did a cover of the Camel’s song in the “Raggedy Ann” movie.
