‘A tricky wee bastard’: On blame for the recent outbreak

  ‘A tricky wee bastard’: On blame for the recent outbreak Crikey readers have their say on the blame game surrounding the latest COVID-19 outbreak, and discuss the realities of proposed solutions.Mal Kelly writes: Read Bernard Keane’s article today and it is a rational 360-degree view of the situation. I do take issue with this statement though: “Nothing has stopped [state governments] from building quarantine facilities within which to house incoming people — particularly if they’re keen to enable the return of economically important foreign students and tourists.

Jambi the Genie, which required John to rock blue face paint and an elaborate turban, would appear on screen when the series' star Pee-Wee (played by Paul Reubens) would make a wish.

He also provided the voice for Pterri the Pterodactyl, who happened to be one of Pee-Wee's closest onscreen pals.

Pee-wee's Playhouse ran for a total of five seasons, from 1986 until 1990, on CBS, with Paragon writing and directing several of the episodes.

  Maradona's nurse tells prosecutors he was following orders A nurse accused of neglect in Diego Maradona's death told Argentine prosecutors on Monday that he was following orders "not to disturb" the football icon while he slept. "He was told by his superiors not to disturb the patient. My client had the wisdom to carry out his tasks without the patient feeling encroached upon, which was something he had to deal with the entire time he was there," Chiarelli added.An investigation was opened following a complaint filed by two of Maradona's five children against neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, whom they blame for their father's deteriorating condition after the operation.

In 1988, two years into Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Paragon and Reubens co-wrote a nearly 50-minute Christmas special for the series.

The Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special aired on December 21, 1988 and would go onto earn John an Emmy nomination for for Best Writing in a Children’s Special, according to TheWrap.

20-years after the conclusion of Pee-Wee's Playhouse on CBS, Reubens was able to wrangle most of the gang back together, including Paragon, to reprise their roles in the Broadway adaptation of Pee-wee Herman stage show in 2010.

Aside from his work in the Pee-Wee Herman universe, John has lent his acting chops to hit sitcoms like Cheers and Seinfeld.

He also had a recurring role in the 2010 revival of Elvira's Movie Macabre playing The Breather alongside Elvira, herself, Cassandra Peterson.
