The Quirky Adventures Of Pete and Pete
16 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is about two red-headed brothers named Pete and his younger brother who is also named Pete. The show follows both of their lives as they grow up in the quirky town of Wellsville. Older Pete often goes about his daily life with his close friend, Ellen who I think eventually becomes a love interest. He probably has it a lot better than younger Pete. Younger Pete goes about his daily life a lot different than older Pete does. He and odd assortment of friends including Artie, "The Strongest Man in the World" must go about doing all kinds of weird adventures. Young Pete must also face off against a very weird assortment of bullies including a kid named Papercut, who can turn ordinary construction paper into deadly weapons; and another kid named Pit Stain who gets his name because he's always sweating in his armpits. Young Pete also gets into all kinds of weird situations like trying to win a game of dodge ball and trying to go on for a week with getting any sleep.

This is truly one of the more original shows to ever grace the small screen. It shows the weird and quirky lives of people living in small towns. This show is a hell of a better than the crap that Nickelodeon is airing now. I think that what makes this show different from other shows is its unusual cast of characters. Everybody on this show, no matter how small their role might be, their role would always prove to be of very great significance in later episodes. I used to love watching this show on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I think that this was the show that rocketed Danny Tamberelli to fame. Now that he's a teenager and he's on "All That" he isn't the same little kid he was on "Pete & Pete".

There were so many classic episodes of "The Adventures of Pete & Pete". The one episode I will remember will probably be the Christmas special where Pete and Pete try to organize the town so that they can have Christmas every single day while also battling a maniacal garbage man who's after their family tree. Another episode I'll remember will be the one where young Pete goes up against the bully known as Papercut. I think probably my favorite episode would have to be the one where young Pete organizes all of his friends and prepares them to go on a sort of "sleep strike" where they must go on for I think a week without getting any sleep.

It's sad that Nickelodeon took this show off the air. Sure it was unusual, but at least it was good.

"The Adventures of Pete & Pete" gets a 10/10.
