The Adventures Of Pete & Pete is an absurdist Nickelodeon sitcom that began in 1993. Before the show itself premiered, it was a series of interstitials during commercials, which later became full-length TV specials that were supposed to be backdoor pilots.

Background[edit | edit source]

The TV specials were similar to full length episodes of the show, being contained stories in a 25 minute long runtime. However, these earlier episodes did not use the same format as the continuing show. The show would end up having a different theme song, "Hey Sandy" by Polaris. These original specials were not aired with that theme song, and instead aired with an intro where the character Ellen would describe the plot, and had footage that was exclusive to those specials. However, on later reairings and on syndication, it would be reedited to include the Polaris theme song, and cut out clips to fit in a more conventional TV runtime.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Every DVD and VHS release has the specials' Polaris cut, not the one as originally aired. However, the original copy of one specific episode has been found, the pilot, "Valentines Day Massacre." Redditor thatguamguy has said he has the first half of the final special, "New Years Pete," however this has not been confirmed.[1]
