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>

The title character is aptly named and, to me, thoroughly unappealing
8 September 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

Not a bad cartoon, but one of two (starring the same character) that I don't like much. Good use of limited animation, but Pete Hothead is a most unlikable character, which is the point, I suppose. For UPA completeists, though others might not find the character so irritating. Think Donald Duck without feathers and clearer speech.
