Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens), an eccentric child-like man, loves his red bicycle and refuses to sell it to his envious neighbor, Francis. While Pee-wee visits his friend Dottie, the bike is stolen. Led to believe that his bike has been taken to the Alamo, Pee-wee sets off on a trip to recover his bicycle, encountering a charming waitress, a rowdy motorcycle gang, and, finally, the Hollywood bigshot who has taken Pee-Wee’s bike to be a prop in his newest picture.
