A truly original series, The Adventures of Pete & Pete played on Nickelodeon for three short seasons in the mid-'90s. Fans have since clamored for more, due to the highly creative writing and impressive lineup. Describing the life of two brothers, both named Pete, and the town in which they live, the show features a slew of odd characters. Throughout its run, Pete & Pete played host to Martin Donovan, Adam West, Bebe Neuwirth, and Chris Elliot. The Classic Petes collection assembles three quirky episodes. "What We Did On Our Summer Vacation" stars Michael Stipe as Captain Scrummy and boasts all original music by the likes of REM and Ministry. "Apocalypse Pete" is the tale of The Great Prank War, led by Steve Buscemi as Mr. Hickle. "Artie's Workout" completes the triad with the strongest man in the world demonstrating exercise techniques. Pete & Pete was an instant hit with both kids and adults. While Pete-aholics can still enjoy reruns, this video ensures the replay of one of the most sorely missed shows on television.
