Children should love the film and adults will be dismayed by the light brushstrokes with which Paul Reubens (one of three credited screenwriters, but star-billed under his stage name, Pee-wee Herman) suggests touches of Buster Keaton and Eddie Cantor.

Fed by comic tributaries perhaps, but Pee-Wee Herman comes over as a delightful original.

Burton's first feature revels in the weird, the unpredictable, the infantile and the absurd. A dazzling debut.
