The Adventures of Pete & Pete (TV Series 1992–1996) Poster

Trivia

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... Does your dog bite (yai yai yai) , 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.
This show started out as a series of one-minute shorts that aired during commercial breaks on Nickelodeon between 1990-1993.

The idea for Pete and Pete's mom having a metal plate in her head came from the story of baseball player and coach Don Zimmer who had to have a metal plate put in his head after receiving a blow to the head by a ball in the 1950's.

According to Danny Tamberelli, Little Pete's famous arm tattoo, Petunia, was achieved with an adhesive patch. However, when supplies of the stick-on began to dwindle, they advised Tamberelli to protect the adhesive from water during shooting periods. Eventually, the producers began applying the tattoo with a stencil.
