Mom got the plate in her head before the Petes were born, right? Perhaps the metal pressing down on her skull had something to do with her unorthodox child-naming practices.
Perhaps the plate also explains why there wasn't much of a fuss over her 10-year-old son's gigantic sexy lady tattoo.
To be honest, I never really cared for little Pete (despite his remarkable lumberjack hat).
I wouldn't have minded if the titular adventures were solely Pete's. And when I say Pete, I'm referring to Pete.
As an adult, I always confuse Pete's villain, Endless Mike, with Pete's villain, Pit Stain. But I think that if you revisit the show, you will discover that both Endless Mike and Pit Stain had pit stains...
and that Artie's relationship with Pete is incredibly inappropriate, especially when you take those red, bulge-enhancing tights into consideration. There was clearly something psychologically off about that man. It was pretty irresponsible of the people of Wellsville to let him run around town like that.
