  • In the early 1990s, the children's cable network Nickelodeon produced a spate of television series that were funny, smart, and never pandered to--or insulted the intelligence of--its predominantly pre-teen audience. Originating as series of shorts that aired during commercial breaks and then expanded to a full-length show, THE ADVENTURES OF PETE AND PETE was one of Nick's most imaginative outings. The offbeat series chronicled the suburban adolescence of two redheaded brothers with the same name--older brother Pete (Mike Maronna) and younger brother Pete (Danny Tamberelli)--in a surreal town populated by an oddball assortment of characters, including a militant Girl Scout, a lovelorn schoolbus driver, a housewife with a steel plate in her head, and a spandex-sporting strongman (the hilarious Toby Huss). The series also featured inspired guest turns by eccentric figures like Michael Stipe, Steve Buscemi, Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Adam West, Janeane Garofalo, and even Hunter S. Thompson. A quirky spin on the standard coming-of-age formula, THE ADVENTURES OF PETE AND PETE is resurrected in this collection of all eight episodes from the series' debut season.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Nickelodeon's suburban farce about two siblings named Pete possesses the oddball charm that drives current cult faves 'Arrested Development' and 'Scrubs'."
