Just when you’ve seen the trailer to The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie and thought it couldn’t get any cooler, think again.

Paul Reubens was a guest on the October 29th broadcast of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Reubens purpose was to promote the recently released DVD/Blu-ray box set of Pee Wee’s Playhouse from Shout Factory.

Let us take this one step further by considering the Playhouse gang cast in the roles of the Avengers; Miss Yvonne as Black Widow, Cowboy Curtis as Nick Fury, Conky as Iron Man, and Captain Carl as the Incredible Hulk.

I couldn’t see it a serious piece of course but as a comedy piece it would be brilliant. After all it worked for Welcome Back, Kotter’s Sweathogs in a parody of Pulp Fiction.
