Get ready to throw all the way back to the '80s on this particular Thursday with a beloved character from the big and small screens: Pee-wee Herman.

Actually, it was Paul Reubens, the man behind the childlike character, who stopped by TODAY to share some "Pee-wee's Playhouse"-related good news (and good times).

The whole five-season run of the kids' show has been remastered and released on DVD and Blu-ray.

"I'm proud of that show," he said. "We took it very seriously that we were affecting young minds. I'm excited that a whole new generation of kids may find it now."

But there was something else to get excited about when Reubens visited TODAY — he brought along the Pee-wee dance from "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" fame!

He was especially impressed with Al Roker's take on his iconic moves.

Today

"He's making it his own!" Reubens cheered.
