Jump to navigation Jump to search

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The soundtrack of independent college rock has given otherwise-forgotten bands a cult following they rightly deserve.
  • Ear Worm: Summerbaby by Polaris. It's so infectious that there's an entire episode devoted to Little Pete becoming obsessed with it.
    • Not to mention the memorable show theme, Hey Sandy.
  • Large Ham: Artie, Mr. Wrigley, and Adam West as the school principal in season three.
  • Memetic Outfit: Little Pete wore a red flannel cap almost everywhere he went.
  • Narm: Very, very rare, but there's at least one memorable incident--in "Yellow Fever", after Big Pete takes the blame for the actions of a put-upon classmate, Endless Mike (who's spent the episode attempting to corrupt Pete) shouts angrily, "You're out of my gang!" On the commentary, those involved spend the next two minutes laughing and go on to claim that Rick Gomez to this day shoehorns it into conversations.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Garbageman is probably one of the creepiest villains ever.
    • "Endless" Mike Hellstrom also qualifies in certain episodes.
      • There was an episode where he caused a kid got SUCKED INTO A HAND DRIER.
      • "They say there are 106 bones in the human body...where to begin, where to begin..."
      • "Pinned!". All of it.
  • Tear Jerker mixed with Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The end of "Farewell, My Little Viking".
