Storyline

This UPA cartoon introduces a new character, Pete Hothead, a feisty little man with a violent temper. Pete Hothead was featured in only one other cartoon. In this one he receives a parrot from a store rather than the radio he ordered. In his attempts to exchange the parrot for a radio, he cause much havoc, disruptions and chaos in the store. He finally gets his radio, but then decides he'd rather have a television set. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pete Hothead is a worthy UPA cartoon
31 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this UPA cartoon on the DailyMotion site as linked from the Cartoons, Model Sheets, and Stuff one. In this one, the title character is entrusted by his wife to take care of a visitor named Marmaduke. He doesn't want to but the real trouble comes when the deliveryman delivers a parrot instead of the radio Pete ordered from the store. Naturally, he goes there to exchange...Quite funny though the character's surname tells all you need to know what to expect. Still, there's also Jim "Mr. Magoo" Backus as a floorwalker that's also worth hearing and looking forward to. So, yes, that's a recommendation for Pete Hothead.
