Shout! Factory is bringing children's TV series Pee-Wee's Playhouse to DVD and digital platforms.

The company has secured the distribution rights to all 45 episodes of Pee-Wee's Playhouse as well as Pee-Wee's Christmas Special.

The complete Blu-ray collection and individual seasons will arrive in 2014.

Yesterday, the firm showed Comic-Con visitors the restoration process for the home entertainment release at The Digital Bits Presents Blu-Ray Producers Panel 2013.

"Pee-Wee's Playhouse is a cultural touchstone for a generation, and its visually dynamic design and offbeat sense of humour were a genuine phenomenon" said the founders of Shout! Factory.

"We are thrilled that this extensive restoration project is underway and look forward to presenting this series for the first time in incredible high-definition and with behind-the scenes bonus material."

The Saturday morning show aired throught the eighties and nineties, picking up 22 Emmys and a Parents Choice Award.
