Did You Know?


The near indecipherable and much-debated lyrics to the theme song are: "Hey smiling strange, you're looking happily deranged (Can you settle to shoot me,) and have you picked your target yet Hey Sandy...ai yai yai yai... Don't Ya' Talk Back, Hey Sandy Four feet Away, end of speech its the end of the day We was only funning, but guiltily I thought... You had it comin', Hey Sandy, Don't Ya Talk Back, Hey Sandy." The line in parenthesis above has never been revealed by the band members, and "Can you settle to shoot me?" is only one of several interpretations. See more »


In the introduction of the show, Mark Mulcahy is wearing a gray vest. In the next shot, the vest is gone and he is only wearing a shirt. The vest switches on and off numerous times. See more »


Big Pete Wrigley: Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house, the Spirit had ended; it had all been doused. The ornaments were yanked from the tree with despair, while dad vacuumed pine needles from his rump.

The Most Amazing Eruption of Nostalgia
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have you ever watched something so emotionally bound to your childhood that when seen today gives you an overwhelming sense of nostalgia almost to the point of tears? This is exactly what occurred when I watched The Adventures of Pete and Pete, or just "Pete and Pete" as my brothers and I would call it. This television show defined my childhood.

I remember being so shocked when I saw little Pete grown up on All That and Figure It Out. And seeing big Pete in somewhat recent movies like Slackers and 40 Days and 40 Nights sends me into that emotional swirl. There's a passion that builds that can only be satisfied by looking these actors up to see what they do, and I feel good seeing that some, although very few, are still doing stuff today. What a terrible tangent I spiraled this into. Nonetheless, I love this show.
