Conky - Silver and black robot on the Saturday morning children's program PEE-WEE'S PLAYHOUSE/CBS/1986-91.

Conky the RObot - Pee-Wee's Playhouse

Conky the robot (voice of John Paragon) lives in the playhouse owned by Pee Wee Herman (Paul Reubens).

Each week Pee Wee unplugs the extension cord that charges his robot, Conky, flips Conky's on switch and stands back to hear his mechanical friend say, "Re..Re..Ready to assist you, Pee Wee!"

Then Pee Wee says, "Good Morning, Conky, what's today's secret word?" and suddenly a small strip of paper spills out of Conky's chest revealing the secret word for the day.

As Pee Wee rips off the paper, Conky says, "Today's secret word is (fill in the blank). You all know what to do for the rest of the day. When anybody says the secret word, scream real loud, Okay!"

Conky's body is a mish-mash of electronic parts, including eyes fashioned from camera flash attachments; a boxy chest built out of a boom box with black speakers; arms tipped with metal pinchers; and a silver base equipped with small black wheels that propelled Conky about the playhouse.

If Conky needs a tune-up, Pee Wee sends for Johnny Wilson, the authorized Conky repairman. (played by Jimmy Smits of L.A. LAW and NYPD BLUE fame).
