Makes My Heart Happy



Way back in the early-to-mid '90's Nickelodeon aired The Adventures of Pete & Pete, a show that I adored (still do). And the theme song, "Hey Sandy" by Polaris, rocked out loud. Pete & Pete was weird and kooky and nutty and absurd and most excellent. What's not to like in a show that had characters named Artie, The Strongest Man In The World or Endless Mike or guest-starred Iggy Pop (who played Michelle Trachtenberg's dad), Bebe Neuwirth, Steve Buscemi, and Kate Pierson & Fred Schneider of The B-52's? Do you know of any other kid's show that has (or had) that caliber of talent?

If you get the chance, either check it out for the first time or refresh your memory of this awesome show. It's out on DVD. In the meantime, make do with this.

Okay, seriously, you have to come out with us on Sunday if you can. Katie is a HUGE fan of P&P and has it on DVD.

You two are the only people I know who have ever spoken about it with such love. ;)

HAHA I was just thinking about Pet and Pete the other day. My favorite episode is when they were locked inside the school and the guys convinced the girl that the urinals that went clear to the floor were actually foot washing stations. HAHA classic.
