Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985)

Tim Burton’s 1985 film “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” introduced the world to Paul Rubens’ classic character, Pee-Wee Herman.  In the film, Pee-Wee lives at this South Pasadena home.

Later in the film, Pee Wee is chased around the Cabazon Dinosaurs.  The dinosaurs are a roadside attraction in Cabazon, California and can be seen from the 10 freeway.  Originally built by a sculptor and theme park artist as a way to attract customers to his nearby restaurant, the dinosaurs now operate as a small museum and gift shop.  The dinosaurs were also seen in the 1989 film “The Wizard.”  Today, visitors are able to go inside the dinosaurs, just like in both films.

They also have one of Pee Wee’s costumes, though it is said to be from the TV show, not the film.
