THE ADVENTURES OF PETE AND PETE

Postby TonyWilson on Wed Aug 24, 2005 8:21 pm

From the shorts to the speaicals to the 3 seasons, nickelodeon's "The Adventure Of Pete And Pete" was surreal, hilarious, incrdibly poignant and melancholy, and almost humanist at times.

Great Pete and Pete Site


If you remember the show then I'd love to hear your comments and the like. No one I know has ever seen it.
I had cable pretty early amongst my friends so watched nickelodeon growing up. The only good show were this and "Are you afraid of the Dark".

Ah happy memories.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Tony It's the same here, no one in England is aware of the brilliance. The Dancing Tatoo, Dad Obsessed with his lawn, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi. I wish more than a couple of episodes were available on DVD.

Now been to the site, forgot about loads of shit, Mom's metal plate, the cute girl that pete had a crush on, Papercut, Hunter S Thompson? I guess I didn't know him at the time to recognise him.

as long as this first set of dvds sells well, im sure you can expect the rest. that show was really well done. i remember seeing the older pete in a really bad trailer for what looked like a really bad flick for teens, and i thought to myself - i havent seen that dude since pete and pete. im planning on picking up the dvds myself.the other one that Nickelodeon is doing that im really waiting for is the "You Can't Do That On Television" set.

Somebody mentioned PETE & PETE! You kick ass. I loved this show when I watched it. Best episode? The one where... hmm... well, I can't describe it well, but the one with Big Pete getting a haircut and Bus Driver Stu (!!) getting stuck at a stoplight. And pizza was there! Mmm. Thank you for mentioning this show.

This was my favorite show when I was a kid. It is easily the best show ever aired on Nickelodian, I wish it was on DVD!

Oh man.. I checked that site out, IT IS ON DVD! I'm going to splurge my next paycheck on it!

I remember both shows fondly. Pete and Pete wasn't watched nearly as much as Eerie, Indiana (non Nick, granted) or You Can't Say That On Television. I remember always being excited and disappointed with Are You Afraid of the Dark, but then again I was spoiled by HBO and TALES FROM THE CRYPT...

Plus I loved both Monsters and Tales From the Darkside (remember the fuckin' creepy opening with the slow piano music and the bare trees? "Tales... From the Daaaaarrrrkkkk siiiiddddeee...")

Mentioning Tales from the Darkside reminded me of that weird Friday the 13th series. That was a show I watched week after week while thinking the entire time, "What the fuck is the point of this whole thing?"

The Dino, he loved a the Friday the 13th series, eh? It was a pretty good, even a though the title was a something of a the misnomer, eh?

Any show that has a the credit "starring...Robey" has a to be a good!

Despite having nothing to do with Jason, I still loved the Friday the 13th tv show. Wasn't the gimmick supposed to be them hunting Jason's hockey mask as the last relic they had to retrieve? And Robey was hot. Hey, I was 12 when the show was on...

I donna know about a the hockey mask, but I do remember how a the show got better as a she went along, eh? Kind of a like a the Highlander... inna the beginning, it was a just a the gimmick, but as a they sold a the show anna to new markets anna hadda to come uppa with a the new stories, they actually put a some thought inna to it, no?

Anna it hadda to be a the most interesting way to "kill off" a the Ryan's character when a he left a the show by a having him turn inna to a little kid, eh?

I forgot about Ryan becoming a kid. Damn, Dino, you got a memory on you for someone your age. I did find this on imdb about the show:

"Reportedly, when the series was conceived, the last item that was supposed to be retrieved by the characters was a hockey mask which would undoubtedly have belonged to Jason, the killer in the films"

Which character was Ryan? Was he that cute bearish guy who was in Kavik the Wolf Dog?
