1.5 “Growing Up” – The Adventures of Pete and Pete

Babyface Conor chooses to revisit The Adventures of Pete and Pete, a live-action Nickelodeon Show about the surreal suburban adventures of two brothers, both named Pete. The show aired in the early 1990’s before Conor was born, so we start by discussing how one can be nostalgic about something they didn’t live through.

We then discuss how it has aged well (wholesomeness, sense of humor) and how it hasn’t (cheap-looking, complete and utter absence of minority characters). In the process, Conor discovers that he completely missed the point of an episode he had a strong personal response to in childhood.

Outro Music: “Hey Sandy” by Polaris
