Edit: Damn, Poodle...beat me to it!

^ I didn't see that part.

Still saddened that the character may have now become tainted.



I'm actually really bothered by it and I don't know what opinion I have yet.

Being accused is not the same as being guilty and people are opportunistic.

I obviously don't have any way of knowing anything about the guy, but it sort of sucks that whether this guy did anything or not, his life and career are probably over.

Pee Wee didn't touch children. He just got caught touching himself in a porn theatre. This does not bother me and I think it was blown WAY out of proportion. He mad a bad choice, yes, but Paul Ruebens is a grown man.

I hate to think that this guy is actually guilty. It again seems like a bad choice as the one who recanted, was an internet type thing. I'm reserving judgement on the rest to learn more. Some of it seems opportunistic, hopefully I'm wrong.

Just because he portrays a children's character does not mean he can't behave like an adult in his own time. Now if it does turn out he did it, well then he's a bad person. Doesn't taint the character though.

Personally I find Elmo annoying.

That's what I thought too, but then I went to check, and it turns out he was caught with child porn a few years later.

I hate that elmo is being tainted. I know he's the voice behind the character but it all just sucks.

I'm almost sure you didn't mean it like that but...being a pedophile is not behaving like an adult! LOL

Haha no, def. not ok to be a pedophile! I think it's just how society expects those who play such characters to have such chaste, childlike lives but get shocked when they find out the actor has sex or maybe a weird fetish. I always say "whatevs" as long as it's consensual among adults.

While Reubens was initially charged with child pornography due to his collection of vintage erotica, he maintained his innocence and the charges were dropped. I had forgotten about this investigation.

Either way, as I do not believe he is a pedophile just someone who did not go through his collection well to weed out the questionable images (there weren't a lot compared to the volume of the collection), I love Pee Wee. The recent broadway show was amazing!

I love Pee Wee (Paul Rubens) as well. I could care less than he... Mmmhmmm... pulled his popcorn in a 'adult theater'.

Elmo is a completely different story. He is not a character from my childhood, but started out as a large part of Sesame Street no less. That is a major childhood institution, if you will, and this news would have to be devastating for all. Having a possible child predator lurking behind the scenes in that business... horrifying. I hope this does not taint the character forever.

I don't even remember hearing about that part. I do remember hearing he had a massive collection of pornography (can you call it) memorabilia (?) and the extra butter incident.

* I just had to look that up and refresh my memory. In 2002 (indecent exposure charge was 1991) Out of a collection of 70,000 items they classified the Rob Lowe sex tape and a few 30-100 year old kitsch photo's as child pornography BUT the DA's office found no grounds for felony charges.*

He started out in adult theme shows, they talked him into a twisted program for children (yes!!! i loved that cracked out show) and then he re claimed his broadway roots after the dust settled.

Sorry to further sidetrack.
