Vet thesp FRED WILLARD pulls a “Pee Wee Herman” after cops catch him with his junk out of the trunk and out in public view.

Willard was taken into custody for lewd conduct Wednesday night after he was caught at Hollywood’s Tiki Theater with his genitals exposed and his pants down. He was reputedly watching last night’s XXX adult feature with his penis exposed and in his hand.

Willard, 72, who first burst onto the national spotlight nearly 40 years ago on a spinoff of “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” in a fictional talkshow “Fernwood Tonight”, was cited and then released by LAPD.

A mugshot was taken, police said, adding he was “cooperative” .

Willard is slated to appear in court at a future date, police told

Willard has appeared in billions of films and TV shows including AnchormanBest in ShowFor Your Consideration, and Everybody Loves Raymond.

According to the imdb Willard has a film currently in pre-production called …wait for it… “The Yank”.

Pee Wee Herman was famously arrested for indecent exposure in an adult theater in Sarasota, Florida in July of 1991, damaging his career for years. He has since recovered from his indecent exposure.
