Conky - Silver and black robot on
the Saturday morning children's program PEE-WEE'S
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
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,
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).
