Adventures of Pete & Pete, The

1 9 9 3 – 1 9 9 6 (USA)
30 x episodes

American sitcom chronicling the misadventures of two brothers – both named Pete – and their friends in Westville, USA.

Knowingly heavy on music and celebrities (guests included LL Cool JIggy Pop and Michael Stipe from REM) the show started as a series of one-minute promos for the Nickelodeon cable channel before becoming specials, and eventually a weekly series.

Also seen were Mom (who had a metal plate in her head which proved useful as an antenna), Dad (relatively normal), Big Pete’s friend Ellen, and Artie – the Strongest Man in the World.

Classic episodes included The Burping Room (in which, after excessive belching, little Pete is forced by Dad to conduct all belching in a specially designed room), X-Ray Man (in which little Pete gets X-ray vision, forcing Ellen to wear a lead smock),What We Did On Our Summer Vacation and Staremaster.
