The Adventures of Pete & Pete is an American comedy television series created by Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi for Nickelodeon. It centered on the humorous and surreal adventures of two brothers both named Pete Wrigley, along with an eccentric cast of family, friends, and enemies. The Adventures of Pete & Pete began on Nickelodeon in 1989, as minute-long shorts that aired as interstitials. Owing to the popularity of the shorts, five half-hour specials were made, followed by a regular half-hour series that ran for three seasons from 1993 to 1996. Reruns of the shorts and the shows now run on TeenNick as part of their block NickSplat on October 5, 2015. Jason Ankeny of AllMusic called the series “the greatest children's show ever”, while IGN called it “one of the most well-written kids shows ever”. The first two seasons were released on DVD in 2005; the third was planned for 2006 but was indefinitely postponed.
The Adventures of Pete & Pete - Setting - Netflix
Pete & Pete is set in the town of Wellsville (the state is implied, but never explicitly mentioned, to be a fictionalized version of the real-life town of Wellsville, New York). An allusion to its location comes during “When Petes Collide”, when the Petes' father runs four hours to the Canadian border to get rid of his bowling ball, Rolling Thunder. Portions of Wellsville were fictionalized for the purposes of the show; Glurt County, mentioned in “Yellow Fever” and “The Good, the Bad and the Lucky”, does not exist in any state (the real Wellsville is located in Allegany County, New York). License plates in the show refer to Wellsville being located in the “Sideburn State”. The show was filmed largely in South Orange, New Jersey, with location shots done in a variety of other spots around northern New Jersey, including the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, New Jersey. The exteriors of Pete & Pete's house (as seen in the credit sequence and other shots) were filmed on Melrose Place in South Orange, New Jersey. The football field used for various episodes is that of Bayonne High School in Bayonne, New Jersey. The fictional Wellsville High School's mascot is a squid.
