(Newser) – Goofy kids character Pee-wee Herman will live again on a Los Angeles stage in a November comeback series by creator Paul Reubens, reports the Los Angeles Times. "I've put him away for a long time but part of him has always been with me," Reubens said in an interview. The extraordinarily popular child-man Pee-wee suffered a major blow when Reubens was busted for indecent exposure in 1991, and pleaded guilty 13 years later to possessing obscene images of children.
