Writers: Phil Hartman; Paul Reubens; Michael Varhol

Music Composed by: Danny Elfman

Producers: Robert Shapiro; Richard Gilbert Abramson

Keywords: Comedy, Dinosaurs, Road Trip, Texas, Claymation

Pee-Wee Herman has everything he wants in life, and his bicycle is the envy of the neighborhood. All of that ends when it is stolen; a fortune teller provides the critical information that his bicycle is ensconced in the basement of The Alamo. After the police prove unhelpful Pee-Wee takes the law into his own hands and commences the road trip to end all road trips. First and some say best feature film by Tim Burton. Not for everyone.
