THEN: After his arrest earlier in the year (for lewd conduct in a public place) made him the target of late-night comics, Paul Reubens (in full costume as Pee-wee Herman) took the stage – to a standing ovation – and cracked, "Heard any good jokes lately?" at the 1991 VMAs.
NOW: Pee-wee's back! He brought The Pee-wee Herman Show – a live production of the beloved children's show Pee-wee's Playhouse – to sold-out crowds on Broadway in 2010. He's now planning his first feature film in over two and a half decades.
