Gaines demonstrates the enchantment and broad appeal of the Playhouse, as well as the spontaneity of a show where 'anything could happen.'" --Publishers Weekly (August 8, 2011) "For all its attraction for the superfan, from the exhaustive episode guide to the previously unpublished photographs and behind-the-scenes tech-talk, the human portrait of Paul Reubens stands as Gaines' signal achievement." --KirkusReviews.com (December 2011) "Inside Pee-wee's Playhouse's release couldn't have come at a better time.
