When Cowboy Curtis, Miss Yvonne, and Cowntess can't come over because they have to work (much to Pee-wee's despair), everyone at the playhouse make up their own holiday and call it "Playhouse Day," which is all holidays in one. The King of Cartoons decides to make it a real holiday. Pee-wee's friends get the rest of the day off work to celebrate.
