Pee-Wee's Playhouse

Ricardo (last name unknown) was a friend of Herman's, who replaced the role of Tito as Herman's athletic friend without any in-show explanation. Rather than be a lifeguard this time around, Ricardo was a pro soccer player and dancer, and was also knowledgeable about keeping up good health. When Herman got ill, Ricardo recommended the manchild not exercise, play, or do anything he was used to doing in order to allow his body to rest and battle the illness. Ricardo had to leave for a soccer game that afternoon, but said he would return afterward to see how Herman was doing. When Ricardo was away, he found it hard to bring himself to calm down and rest, until he got so weak and sick he had to take Ricardo's advice. However, he became very mean and nasty around everyone as a result

Like many of the men on the show, Yvonne had a crush on Ricardo during his time on the show.

Played by Vic Trevino (seasons 2-5). His first appearance was in Open House and his final appearance was in Fun, Fun, Fun.


Ricardo is a Hispanic-American man with wavy black hair.

His athlete attire consists of a blue-and-dark-blue vertical-striped shirt, white shorts, black socks, and white sneakers with a gold necklace.

Sometimes he can be seen wearing a tank top (either white or grey).
