Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985) I noticed the music during the WB Studios chase scene sounds a lot like the Wizard of Oz wicked witch theme; perhaps it was intentional, like the many other references? @DannyElfman

Good god, I feel slightly dumber after watching the first 30 minutes. Kid's movie? I don't understand the positive reviews....
