Kids series will air on Adult Swim

Pee-wee's Playhouse, the long-absent series starring gay favorite Paul Reubens, will return to television when the Cartoon Network's late-night lineup Adult Swim re-airs the series beginning July 10. The Emmy-winning show has been off the air for nearly 15 years.

"I'd say this was a dream come true," Reubens said in a statement. "But I never dared to dream the Playhouse would join Adult Swim's amazing lineup of cool shows."

Since its original Saturday morning run on CBS in 1986, the acclaimed series won multiple Emmys and featured a star-filled cast including Phil Hartman, Laurence Fishburne, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Natasha Lyonne. Adult Swim will air all 45 half-hour episodes of Pee-wee's Playhouse Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. (ET/PT). (The Advocate)
