Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The very first episode of Pee-wee's Playhouse, "Ice Cream Soup," was seen on September 13, 1986. Here we meet all the gang: Cowboy Curtis, Miss Yvonne, Conky, Jambi, and the King of Cartoons (here played by Gilbert Lewis). Courtesy of Conky, we're given the first-ever secret word: "Door." Forced to vacate the Playhouse pool because of inclement weather, Pee-wee and his friends snuggle up in the kitchen to make ice cream soup (hence the title). As a bonus, Captain Carl is rescued from the Sandwich Islands. "Ice Cream Soup" was released on video in tandem with "Puppy in the Playhouse" in Volume 13 of Pee-wee's Playhouse.
