White Playhouse Mystery Science

Obscure Reference Time! One of the set designers for Netflix’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival is Wayne White.

In 1986 he worked on Pee-wee’s Playhouse doing set and puppet designs (and some puppet voices!). Wayne also did those cool sets for Smashing Pumpkins’ Tonight, Tonight.

Wayne is a fantastic painter and was the subject in a sublime 2012 doc Beauty Is Embarrassing (must see!). Which sadly is not on Netflix however while you wait for the movie to appear you can read his freshtastic paper museum of his work: Maybe Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve.

Get ready for Wayne White…Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming!
