Video of the Day: ‘Adventures of Pete & Pete’ Cast Reunion


For many children of the ’90s, Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Pete & Pete was the first truly bizarre TV show we ever loved. As a result, it’s made a sizable impact on our generation’s collective consciousness. So we were pretty jealous when we read about the Pete & Pete reunion that went down last weekend at Los Angeles’s Cinefamily, bringing together the show’s cast and creators for the first time in 15 years. Thankfully, there’s video. About 95 minutes of it, even. Big Pete, Little Pete, Artie, and the twisted minds behind the show reflect on their quasi-surrealist masterpiece, which the creators say was an attempt to depict the strangeness of growing up from a kid’s perspective. We have only one gripe: Where’s Ellen? Oh, and be warned — there’s a whole lot of intro before the panel takes the stage almost 12 minutes into the first clip.
