Pee-wee Herman's bike fetched some big bucks on eBay.

The red-and-white bicycle rode by the comedian in "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" sold for $36,600 on the online auction site, way more than the $10,000 reward Pee-wee offered for it in the 1985 film.

It's also three times as much as the seller paid for the bike in 2010.

According to the listing, the seller said he needed to get rid of the piece of film memorabilia "because my family is getting larger."

The bike came with an autographed photo of Paul Reubens (the actor who played Pee-wee), a photo of Reubens signing the photo and a certificate of authenticity.
