I remember perfectly when this show was on during the original Nick run, but I didn't even really watch it then. But now that it's back on Noggin, I decided to finally watch it for myself. I had NO idea what I was missing!

This show is truly awesome, and is one of the few that I never miss. I'm sure by reading the other comments that you know that it's about two brothers that for some very weird reason have the same name (Pete!). Older Pete tells the episode's story from his point of view, and Little Pete is courageous and often gets into insane situations. I think this show is kind of like "Leave It To Beaver" and "The Twilight Zone" put together, but it's got it's own crazy twist that makes it as good as it is.

It's a shame that it only lasted for three seasons, but in a way, that's a good thing, because then the episodes didn't get too...well, the way the last episodes of really long lasting shows often turn out (need I go on about The Simpsons?). But at least it's being revived. :D
