Did You Know?

Trivia

The names of the slushies that the Petes, and the baseball team they belong to, drink are all named after Biblical figures. Flavors mentioned include Grape Judas, Lime Balthazar and the addictive Orange Lazarus. 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.

wow I miss this show
10 August 2001 | by weerdo1482See all my reviews

I think of all the shows I still wish were on tv, I miss this one the most. this was one of the most weirdest creative sitcoms ever made. it was like this bizarre little suburban universe that I really wanted to be part of. not only was the writing great, but the music by one of my favorite bands polaris, is also great. I don't think that televison gets much more creative and funny than this show.
