The Adventures of Pete & Pete

  1. Attention: Pete and Pete (Danny Tamberelli and Mike Maronna) Have a Podcast

    Come, my little vikings!

    The Adventures of Pete & Pete was one of the best things about growing up in the 90's, and fans of the show should be thrilled to know that the Petes themselves, Danny Tamberelli and Mike Maronna, have started a podcast appropriately titled The Adventures of Mike & Danny. Pipe!

  2. Pete & Pete Creator Expresses Surprise That So Many Girls Like The Show; We Laugh

    Consider the Following

    Nickelodeon's could-only-have-been-made-in-the-nineties cult hit Pete & Pete is almost twenty years old (if you start counting when the television show aired, not when the first 60 second shorts did), and last year the creators of the show staged their first small cast reunion, expecting nobody to show up. The gathering sold out. Two subsequent shows at a larger location each sold out in five minutes or less. This week, they took the reunion tour to Los Angeles, and naturally that warranted an interview from the LA Times, in which Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi admitted that their most enthusiastic fans, the ones that seem most touched by the show, are women.

  3. There Was a Pete & Pete Cast Reunion This Weekend, Watch the Whole Thing Here

    The Adventures of Pete & Pete ran for twenty-six short films, five half-hour specials, and three seasons of actual greenlit television, the poster kid/show/kid's show for that early 90's Nickelodeon sense of "How did anyone know that this was a good idea?" (A feeling just on the other side of "Why did anyone think this was a good idea?") Our favorite quote from this Saturday's cast reunion in Los Angeles?
    We were writing for a certain kind of kid, and I guess it was all you folks here today. We were writing for a certain kid that was maybe, um, felt like he was a little weird himself and wasn't really sure how to express that or if it was okay to express that. And we wanted to find that kid and show him our show and say "it's okay."

  6. Nickelodeon To Start Airing Its ’90s Shows Again, For Real This Time

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    Just an introduction, before we blow your mind: a few weeks ago, a fake internal memo from Nickelodeon circulated on the internet, proclaiming that the kids television network had bowed to years of older fans clamoring for a way to watch it's classic shows, and would be producing new episodes of Doug, Rugrats, The Angry Beavers, and more. So yeah, new episodes, very unlikely. Except now it is almost true.
