Trivia

Almost everything in the world of Pete and Pete is created and manufactured by the KrebStar Company. Products include Lady Krebstick deodorant, Kreben Up soda, Kreb Zeppelin the world famous rock and roll band, the board game Krebtego, and the Wrigley family's car is a Krebrolet. See more »

Goofs

Little Pete's forearm tattoo, Petunia, is important enough to get her own identification ("and Petunia") in the opening credits for the show. Apparently, Petunia likes to travel. In early episodes, she is on Pete's left arm, in later episodes on his right arm. In the opening credit sequence, during her main appearance she's on his left arm, and in the very next shot, when Pete and Pete are walking toward the camera with a sunset in the background, she's on his right.

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.
