The Dark Knight Rises‘ hits theaters July 20th. This means we are now solidly into the “bat days” of summer. Jimmy Fallon played his part in hyping the much-anticipated movie with a sketch in which Paul Reubens uses his Pee-wee Herman voice to overdub all the voices in a ‘Dark Knight Rises’ trailer. Check out the simple but effective edit below.

It turns out Pee-wee is the perfect antidote to Christian Bale’s low Batman growl and Tom Hardy’s muffled Bane dialogue.

Reubens has a previous history with Batman — he played the Penguin’s father in 1992’s ‘Batman Returns,’ and voiced the role of Bat-Mite in the animated TV series ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold.’

However, this has to be our favorite Bat-turn for the 59-year-old actor. In fact, we’d like to see him overdub a full-length trailer. Or –why not? — the entire movie.
