Only Petunia Might Not Be There
Like most children of the 90s, growing up I had my TV constantly glued to Nickelodeon. Whether it was watching Stick Stickley in the afternoons introduce cartoons like Doug, Rugrats, or Ren and Stimpy, game shows like Legends of the Hidden Temple or Double Dare, or live-action shows like All That or Salute Your Shorts, I could not get enough of the channel. One of my all-time personal favorite shows though was The Adventures of Pete and Pete.
Dozens of classic episodes, like when the younger Pete went for the world flashlight freeze tag record with his friends, when the entire Pete family had to strip down naked to win the unspoken ‘King of the Road’ challenge on a family vacation, or when the younger Pete tried to figure out the conundrum of where Mister Softee went when the summer ended, Pete and Pete was another example of unique Nickelodeon programming that somehow found an audience with kids.
So, if you were a fan like me, you probably wonder what happened to everyone from the show. Well, if you live in the Los Angeles area, you’ll have a chance to find out.
On August 28th, at Downtown LA’s Orpheum Theater, for one night only as a part of Cinefamily’s Everything Is Festival, almost everyone involved with the show will reunite for a lengthy discussion about the show.
If you’re interested in checking the show out, tickets are on sale now if you’re a member of Cinefamily. Tickets go on sale to the general public on July 21st. General admission tickets are going for $25 a pop and VIP tickets are going for $75, which not only gets you better seats, but gives you the chance to meet everyone who will be on stage at the after party. Maybe then you can finally see if Artie is indeed the strongest man in the world.
