"Pete and Pete" Revisited

Now can we get the fucking season 3 DVD out on the shelves, please?

Reigniting the dim fire amongst fanboys of a very specific age (read: mine) for the short-lived Nickelodeon show "The Adventures of Pete and Pete" to get the proper respect it deserves demands, the blog "Gaytriarchy" slapped together a bunch of 120 Minutes-influenced cameos that were featured on the show in its too-short existence.

Which I'm mad grateful for, but I have to object to the exclusion of LL Cool J as Little Pete's teacher. Dude was straight academic with it.

Anyway, here's a reference list of the cameos in the order they appear. Stay tuned for Iggy Pop as Nona's dad. (Nona, played by Michelle Trachtenberg, is the only one of the cast's kids that's doing anything noteworthy these days, and honestly, I'm cool with that. The Pete boys just didn't have much to offer beyond this).

Patty Hearst, David Johansen (New York Dolls), Ann Magnuson, Martin Donovan, Suzzy Roche (The Roches), Sarah Shannon (Velocity Girl), Chris Elliott, Bebe Neuwirth, Syd Straw, Steve Buscemi, Gordon Gano (Violent Femmes), Janeane Garofalo, Debbie Harry, Heather Matarazzo, Kate Pierson (the B52s), Marshall Crenshaw, Juliana Hatfield, Luscious Jackson, Iggy Pop, Hunter Thompson
