"More Pee-Wee music, but for a different movie studio, which meant I couldn't repeat any thematic material from the first Pee-Wee movie. What, however, is 'more fun' than a circus?"






Originally released by Arista Records (ARCD 8568) in 1988, Big Top Pee-Wee soon became a hard-to-find collectors item once it went out-of-print. Pendulum Entertainment, also known as Pendulum Recordings re-issed the album (PEG016) in 1997 with similiar artwork.

The tracklists on the packaging are not numbered, and at first glance the CD would appear to contain thirty-two tracks. In fact the disc has thirty-one tracks. The tracks "Zsa Zsa's Delight" and "Elephant Ride" are one single track.
