The Adventures of Pete & Pete was one of several sitcoms aired by Nickelodeon during the early 1990s, about two brothers and their oddball family/neighborhood/school/world in the town of Wellsville. Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi, two members of Nickelodeon's marketing department, created the series in 1988 as shorts meant to advertise Nickelodeon in a more roundabout way. The commercials took off, leading to half-hour specials being produced (five from 1991 to 1993), and eventually a full-series order with a three-season run. The plug was pulled in 1996.The two titular brothers are named Pete Wrigley for reasons that are never explained within the series proper* the shorts mention their mom wanted their names to rhyme; co-creator Will McRobb once noted that, should you feel the need to ask, you're probably watching the wrong show. This is, after all, the same show where underpants inspectors are guardian angels, a metal detector can find an entire car (still in good condition) buried at the beach, you can run to the Canadian border in four hours (or use a riding mower), and a mentally challenged man who speaks incoherent sentences and runs around in spandex pajamas is the personal superhero of the younger Pete Wrigley. Why two brothers have the same name should be the least of your issues.The series was fairly successful on Nick when it aired, alongside other live-action shows such as Salute Your Shorts and Clarissa Explains It All. The first two seasons were also released to DVD as part of Nickelodeon's "Rewind" series, which showcased shows from that era. Pete and Pete in particular was also a hit with college-aged young adults—a demographic that Nick wouldn't attract again in such large numbers until Invader Zim in 2001—who enjoyed its quirkiness. Additionally, by being shot on location and eschewing a laugh track, it pioneered a format that became the preferred one for sitcoms by the time the 2000's came around.This is The Adventures of Pete and Pete. And this is its recap page.Hey, look! A character sheet! Pipe!

 The Adventures of Pete & Pete / int_1329e895
comment
Unrequited Love Switcheroo: The shorts, specials and "Day of the Dot" present Ellen as pining after Big Pete, with him having to remind her that she's "a girl, and a friend, but not my girlfriend." Season two episodes like "Yellow Fever" and "Time Tunnel" turn this around—Big Pete is starting to wonder if he has feelings for Ellen, but she no longer reciprocates.

Adults Are Useless. Indeed, even the International Adult Conspiracy itself does little but gossip and moan over the phone. Not all adults are useless though, some are quite wise and insightful like Mr. Slurm the shop teacher and the Janitor at Pete's school.

Getting Crap Past the Radar: Several examples, most notably Endless Mike's dating advice in "Time Tunnel": "No fog, no fun!" A significant portion of Little Pete's lines are Parental Bonus. And again in "Field of Pete": This quote from "Yellow Fever", where the bus has pulled over for its passengers to pee: In "Farewell, My Little Viking," when Artie is hawking aluminum siding, he uses the side of the house to give himself a back massage:

World's Strongest Man: "Artie - the strongest mannnnnnnn *Dramatic Pause* in the woooorrrrld!" His on-camera feats include hitting a golf ball 300,003 feet, pushing a house to the left an inch (he wanted to knock it over, but he had strained a muscle earlier while lifting a brassiere emporium), rolling a bowling ball from whatever state Wellsville is in into Canada, skipping a stone on Neptune, leaving the Wrigley's gutters clean and spotless by blowing through the drainage pipe (and said gunk going flying all over the neighborhood,) and leaping across the city in a single jump.

Beach Bury: Sort of, in a typically surreal and hilarious manner. The Wrigleys take a trip to the beach, and using his metal detector, Don finds a car buried in the sand. Then the family digs it out and drives home in it. This is also the way that Dad finds Mom at the beach for the first time.

comment
Production Posse: Showrunners McRobb and Viscardi would cast Damian Young (Bus Driver Stu) in their Too Good to Last show The War Next Door, as well as the film Snow Day (which was proposed as a Pete & Pete movie.) Bob Mittenthal, who wrote a couple of episodes, would also go on to co-create KaBlam! with McRobb and Viscardi. By a startling coincidence, Rick Gomez (Endless Mike) was cast on another McRobb-Viscardi show — KaBlam! — without any of the three knowing until production started. Also, surprisingly, Scrubs. Several longtime members of Pete & Pete's production crew ended up working on the show, including P&P's director of photography Michael Spillman, who would direct over a dozen Scrubs episodes. The actor who played Teddy on P&P also had a couple of bit roles sprinkled throughout and when you consider how much of the show's style is eerily reminiscent of P&P (first-person narration with ending realization, absurdist humor and characters emphasis on music, etc.), it's almost an adult Spiritual Successor.

Serious Business: "I created Orange Lazarus... for world peace..." The unspoken rule to proving yourself to be King of the Road on a family trip is based on how high you can stack all the luggage on top of your car. Dad's masculinity is threatened when another family's station wagon has a higher stack than the Wrigleys. They eventually have to strip down and put their clothes and underwear and the Statue of Liberty hood ornament to finally win out in the end. That, and just about everything else on the show - the school marching band, bedtimes, shop class, bowling balls, school tests, dodgeball, favorite songs, baseball, awkward silence, Daylight Saving Time, Halloween, underwear inspecting, fishing, field trips, good-luck charms, pool piss, pool hierarchy, spring fever, Varsity sports, how fast your electricity meter is spinning...

Screwed by the Network: More specifically, by the parent company of the network. When Viacom shifted around some key executives at Nickelodeon, it eventually resulted in several "Rewind" DVD releases being postponed and eventually cancelled, leaving the third and final season unavailable on DVD (at least in the US).

One of the Kids: A very rare case of a "good" adult child was Artie, who was the local super-hero, best friend to all children and a positive (yet very weird) role model to anyone who actually listened to him.

Relationship Reset Button: Whether Pete & Ellen were friends or toying with being more than was irrelevant by the next episode. They had a series-finale-quality kiss in front of a high-school-stadium audience in episode 2, and nothing ever really came of it. By the writers' own admission on the commentary, "I think we just forgot about it."

The Cameo: One of the great joys of the show was the plethora of guest stars such as Steve Buscemi, Janeane Garafolo, Adam West, LL Cool J, and Bebe Neuwirth. The show was also crawling with cameos from alternative rock musicians including Iggy Pop (who had a recurring role as Nona's dad pop), Kate Pierson of the B-52's, Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes, Marshall Crenshaw, Syd Straw, Michael Stipe of R.E.M., David Johansen of the New York Dolls, the rock band Luscious Jackson and Richard Edson (the original drummer for Sonic Youth)

Planet Eris: As much as they could in a live-action show. I mean, the school's mascot was a squid in a bucket, Little Pete once caused an explosion by placing a humidifier and a dehumidifier next to each other, Big Pete was once visited by a space alien that was a fan of Johnny Unitas, and that's not even getting into Artie... Rolling Thunder, a magical bowling ball with Power For Good... and Powers For Evil... Little Pete found Jimmy Hoffa's wallet buried under Dad's lawn.

Applied Phlebotinum: The metal plate grafted to Mrs. Wrigley's skull usually gets used for something sooner or later, and she never seems to catch on (though she usually does feel a "Ping" when it happens.) Examples include being used as a magnet, getting struck by lightning, using it as a radio antennae to pick-up a radio station from halfway across the world and reflecting the signal from a garage door opener off in order to close it. It's also how Dad found her in the first place- with a metal detector at the beach. They hit it off and the rest is history.

Put on a Bus: Poor, poor Artie. (In retrospect, all Toby Huss can remember of his reasons for leaving is that he did it "of his own accord", according to his commentary on the DVD.) Perhaps lampshaded, as Little Pete thereafter kept regular company with Bus Driver Stu.

Bigger on the Inside: Another source of the show's quirky humor. Artie's residence looks like a normal Port-A-Potty, but apparently it's big enough to host a dinner party with a lot of people...? Artie is a Time Lord? That actually makes a lot of sense.

comment
Wondrous Ladies Room: In the episode "All-nighter", Pete (the younger) and two of his friends (Wayne and Monica) end up locked in the school overnight by accident. Naturally, hijinks ensue as all three take the opportunity to do all the things they would otherwise never be allowed to do on school grounds. Monica decides to go and check out the BOYS room, since she has never been inside one in her life, apparently. Upon entering she is utterly astounded by the presence of urinals and completely baffled as to their purpose. The two boys (who happened to be in the exact same bathroom for some reason) decide to have some fun by telling her the urinal is "a foot washer".

Platonic Life Partners: Played straight and with. By the writers' own admission on the DVD Commentary, they were unfamiliar with character arcs, so every episode was written enitrely self-contained, meaning Pete and Ellen's friendship was sometimes bent to fit the plot at hand. Most episodes played the trope straight, but several have one pining for the other, most notably "Day of the Dot", "The Big Quiet", "Time Tunnel", and "Crisis in the Love Zone".

Meaningful Name
 The Adventures of Pete & Pete / int_bf97a2b3
comment
Meaningful Name: Many of the bullies, such as Open Face (who loved his open-faced sammiches) and Papercut (who had an obsession with dealing out...well, paper cuts - and he always threw Paper during Rock-Paper-Scissors). And, of course, Pit Stain, whose problem happened to be glandular...and Little Pete's problem happened to be his fist. Hell, the only villain to whom this doesn't apply is "Endless" Mike; the nickname is never elaborated upon (though fans have speculated the "endless" is in reference to his hatred for Big Pete or his tenure in high school.) Those are all Meaningful Nicknames; Mike's surname "Hellstrom", however, is quite a Meaningful Name. In a non-bully example, there's Slushmaster Bob Oppenheimer, who even makes his own spin on J. Robert Oppenheimer's famous quote: In "On Golden Pete," involving the Petes' Dad's obsessive quest to catch an elusive striped bass, his HAM radio nickname is revealed to be Ahab

Lyrical Dissonance
 The Adventures of Pete & Pete / int_c8c15b55
comment
Lyrical Dissonance: The main theme, "Hey Sandy," is a peppy alt-rock song that is widely rumored to be about the Kent State Massacre. (Naturally, however, it was a chore to get even most of the lyrics clarified—finding out the meaning is all but a lost cause. See Indecipherable Lyrics above.) Little Pete's favorite song from one episode is "Summerbaby" (performed by Polaris, who also did the opening theme) which includes lines like "When I'm alone I do things nobody knows" and "Every drop of sex and every little mess I make". Though the version sung in the episode was altered to "Every time I guess and every little mess I make".

comment
Indecipherable Lyrics: The theme song, "Hey Sandy", is made of this, the most commonly misinterpreted lyric was "Don't you talk back" as "Does your dog bite?". The lyrics have since been published, except for the third line, which according to the DVD commentary will remain a mystery but according to the DVD subtitles is "Can you settle to shoot me?". Danny Tamberelli (Little Pete) claimed on Reddit that the line is "Can you settle a sure bet?". It would make sense, as it properly fits the song's rhyme scheme.
