"The story of a rebel and his bike".  After the success of The Pee Wee Herman TV show, Paul Reubens (Pee Wee) decided to make a movie, and with Tim Burton's help, Pee Wee's Big Adventure  was released in 1985.  It was such a big hit, that a  sequel, Big Top Pee Wee, was released in 1988.

In the original movie, Pee Wee's beloved bicycle is stolen while he is visiting his girlfriend, Dottie.  After seeking the advice of a psychic, Pee Wee sets off on a road trip to the Alamo (San Antonio, TX), where the psychic claims the bike is hidden.  Along the way, Pee Wee meets a number interesting characters and gets himself in a number of interesting situations.  For example, while trying to use the telephone at a biker bar, Pee Wee accidentally knocks over the Satan's Helpers motorcycles, and as a last request, he asked to dance to the song "Tequila", whereby he wins their hearts and they let him go.

Pee Wee's adventure eventually lands him on the set of Warner Bros. studio, where he goes about the business of stealing his bike back from an actor, and then wreaking havoc on various sets during his escape.  Just as he was about to escape with his bike, he is stopped by a burning pet shop, where he had to stop and rescue the animals.  In the end, Warner Brothers buys the rights to his story, and a movie of his life is made, while Pee Wee lives happily ever after with Dottie.
