The Case of Pete and Pete

Hey Sandy! This week we took a trip back in time to Wellsville, USA and visited with our favorite red-headed brothers! If you get a minute, sit with us a while and listen as we chat about Pete Wrigley, his brother Pete, Ellen, Artie (the strongest man in the world), Mom, Dad, Mom’s plate, and Petunia.

The Adventures of Pete and Pete is a beloved 90s Nickelodeon show with a cult following. This week we sat down to discuss what made this show so special!


While we researched for this episode, we found A LOT of great resources. For example, we referenced this video by PushingUpRoses

We also highly suggest visiting any of the articles put out by The A/V Club on this show.

If you are interested in watching the show, there are episodes on YouTube! You can also buy seasons 1 & 2. Season 3 has never been released on DVD. We linked to a petition to have it released here.

One of the most important and special aspects of the show is the music. Here is a link to the theme song:
