Series Summary:

The Adventures of Pete and Pete

Surreal comedy, reminiscent of NBC's Eerie, Indiana, in which a peaceful suburban neighborhood was a strange and skewed world as seen through the eyes of a preteen--in this case hyperactive "Little Pete" Wrigley. Strangeness abounded in the quiet town of Wellsville. For one thing Pete's teenage brother was also named Pete, for no particular reason. Don, his dad was a balding goofball obsessed by his lawn, and Joyce, his mom, had a plate in her head on which she could pick up police radio and other odd signals. Artie, the truly nutty neighbor, was a rubber-faced inventor who dressed in red tights and maybe really was a comic-book superhero. Certainly he was Little Pete's hero. Ellen was Big Pete's friend and Nonas the oddly perceptive little girl next door; only Big Pete, who narrated, was half normal. Nimbus was the family dog, and Petunia was Little Pete's bizarre tattoo. Parents, teachers, neighbors, school crossing guards, and others all acted illogically (as adults often do from a kid's point of view), but Little Pete's adventures usually worked out in the end.

The Adventures of Pete & Pete originated as a series of one-minute vignettes in 1990, was expanded into a series of five specials, and then became a regular series in late 1993. Filmed in Leonia, New Jersey.

Did You Know?

The names of the slushies that the Petes, and the baseball team they belong to, drink are all named after Biblical figures. Flavors mentioned include Grape Judas, Orange Balthazar and the addictive Orange Lazarus.

The third line of the theme song (following "Hey smilin' strange, you're lookin' happily deranged") was long thought indecipherable - neither it's writer, nor Polaris themselves, would reveal the line. Finally, in early 2005, the first season DVD of the show revealed the lyric to be "Can You Settle to Shoot Me", as mentioned in our review.

This show started out as a series of one-minute shorts that aired during commercial breaks on Nickelodeon between 1990-1993.
