The most recent information posted about Paramount's upcoming Season One set of THE ADVENTURES OF PETE AND PETE indicated that in addition to the 8 episodes, there will be some (perhaps all) of the initial 1-minute short films and 4 out of the 5 "specials" that aired on Nick before it became a regular series. But I have not been able to find which 4 of the 5 will be included. For the uninitiated, the five "specials" are: "Valentine's Day Massacre" - Big Pete accidentally kills the school mascot. Syd Straw and Richard Edson guest star. This was apparently reedited after the initial broadcast, perhaps to remove a reference to school bully Hat Head killing someone by pushing them from a plane; "New Year's Pete" - Little Pete tries to find meaning in the New Year holiday by having an impact on the world. Hunter S. Thompson guest stars as a partygoer; "Apocalypse Pete" - Pete's dad has an escalating war of pranks with his best friend Ellen's dad. Steve Buscemi guest stars as Mr. Hickle; "What We Did On Our Summer Vacation" - Pete, Pete, and Ellen inadvertently scare off beloved ice cream vendor Mr. Tastee, and desperately try to woo him back to Wellsville. Kate Pierson and Michael Stipe guest star; "Space, Geeks, and Johnny Unitas" - Ellen needs help on a science project while Big Pete ponders whether the new kid at school is an alien. I don't know why Paramount would only include 4 of these 5 shows with the first season, as it would still be only 13 episodes, shorter than most season boxes. I hope it's not "Summer Vacation" that's being held back; a lot of fans, including myself, are going to feel shortchanged at not getting to hear Captain Scrummy tell Big Pete, "You look like a bonafide Sludgesicle man."
