Pee-Wee Visits the Alamo

Remember when Pee Wee Herman visited the Alamo?

As you may recall, Pee-Wee was sent on a quest to find his beloved bicycle which he mistakenly believed was stashed away in the Alamo's nonexistent basement. As a kid I always wondered if that actually shot in San Antonio.

The IMDb page lists San Antonio as a filming location and visual looks legit:

Compare that to the picture I took a few years ago and I think we have a match:

In the upper right of each picture you can see the sign for the Crockett Hotel which is near the Alamo. So I think it's safe to officially add Pee-Wee Herman to the list of the millions of yearly travelers who have visited the historic site.

Pee Wee's return to the Alamo, years later, is less widely known.  Apparently the Alamo does have a basement of sorts and Pee Wee was on hand to personally investigate:
