The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) Pee-wee Herman's next adventure is coming to Netflix.

The online video company says it will debut a new film featuring Paul Reubens as the bow tie-clad character from stage, TV and film.

Netflix says the film will be called "Pee-wee's Big Holiday" and will feature Pee-wee taking his first-ever vacation after meeting a mysterious stranger.

Reubens first created the quirky character in the 1980s when he was a member of the Groundlings improv group.

Netflix currently streams the Pee-wee films "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" and "Big Top Pee-wee," as well as the TV show "The Pee-wee Herman Show" and "Pee-wee's Playhouse."

"Pee-wee's Big Holiday" is being produced by Judd Apatow and directed by John Lee. Reubens is writing the movie's script with Paul Rust.

Netflix says production will begin this year.
