Falling into Pee Wee's Traps

Reba the Mail Lady is Puppetland's mail delivery woman (similar to Mailman Mike), who constantly "fell into Pee-Wee's traps"; later got a boyfriend and a dog.

She frequently delivered Pee-wee's Pen Pal Letters on the show.

In Chairry-Tee Drive, she donated a dashiki to Pee-wee's clothing drive.

At first, she loved the Secret Word game that Pee-wee played, but over time she grew to be intolerant of it, as revealed in Pee-wee and the Del Rubios and Reba Eats and Pterri Runs, probably due to the splinter she had and going to the playhouse unexpectedly. She does show some like for it in Rebarella, however.

In the episode Stolen Apples, Reba gave Pee-Wee a backhanded compliment when she told him that the Playhouse is "the most twisted address on my route", but he failed to see that she was insulting him and thanked her instead. In Now You See Me, Now You Don't, while preoccupied she asked him if there was anything wrong with him.

Reba is performed by S. Epatha Merkerson.


Reba is an African-American woman with dark skin and short black hair (curly or braided). She wears a blue shirt with 1970 United States Postal Service emblem patch on each shoulder, a dark blue vest, a black necktie, a dark blue skirt, black socks, black shoes and small hoop earrings.
