Paul Reubens has announced tour dates in celebration of the 35th anniversary of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.

Throughout the years, the charmingly hapless Pee-wee Herman has been much beloved by children, often well into adulthood. Based on Reuben’s stage character, the 1985 film launched his alter ego to stardom and won him a Saturday morning children’s show on CBS. Pee-wee’s Big Adventure kick-started more than one career, as it also marked the directorial debut of a young Tim Burton and boasted a score by Danny Elfman.

Reubens will screen the movie across 20 American cities, along with offering his own thoughts and answering audience questions. Meet-and-greets and other VIP packages will be available. Tickets are now on sale and you can get them here.

Update: Second shows have been added in New York City and Chicago.
