The Playhouse Band

Dirty Dog was a beatnik puppet who usually talked in slow, rhyming speech, even though he seems to down a lot of coffee. His poems do not always make sense, but they are always cool. Lived in Puppetland, with the rest of the Puppet Band, Cool Cat and Chicky Baby.

He and the others were going to appear in the 2010 revival of The Pee-wee Herman Show—having just returned from a medical marijuana pharmacy and are thus weed-smokers—but the characters were forced to be removed from the show when Paul Reubens realized that this wasn't considered family-friendly.


Dirty Dog is a blue puppet beatnik dog who wears a black derby and a black suit with a black tie.
