One of my favorites, if not my number one favorite, show when I was. a kid from the Nickelodeon classics. Ranks right up there with “Doug” and “Salute Your Shorts.” I recently got the Polaris CD “Songs from The Adventures of Pete & Pete” and it is awesome. I actually never knew that most all the music in the show was from that band who did the theme song. Totally cool. Anyhow, wondering what the cast is up to now? Look no further, as the Monster gives them the WU@W treatment.
Mike Maronna (Big Pete)
Outside of the show, he is mainly known for his characters in “Slackers” and “40 Days 40 Nights.” He also works as a set electrician and has done huge jobs with that for “Sex and the City” and “Be Kind Rewind”
Fun Fact: Big Pete had an ill sneaker game. Just peep him in those OG VIIIs below:
Danny Tamberelli (Little Pete)
Tamberelli was on a slew of kid-related shows and movies like “The Mighty Ducks,” “All That,” “Figure It Out,” and more. Also made appearance in “Igby Goes Down.” He also is a part of a sketch comedy group called “Man Boobs : Sketchy Comedy.” His main gig these days is the bassist and vocalist for the rock band Jounce and the folk/pop band Every Good Boy (bass only).
Judy Grafe (Mom)
Since the show, she’s really only been on an episode of “Judging Amy”
Hardy Rawls (Dad)
Since the show, he was the Maytag repair main in commercials for 4 years, and has also been on a few different “Law and Order” series (SVU, Criminal Intent).
Alison Fanelli (Ellen)
I couldn’t find a credible current picture of her, so here’s the old school joint. A 2001 grad of Goucher College in Baltimore, she then went on to get her master’s at Dartmouth for Health Care Improvement. Also an accomplished oboist.
Toby Huss (Artie….The Strongest Man….IN THE WORLD)
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, swagger jack my idea. The Monster is going as Artie for Halloween this year. It’s gonna be awesome. Anyways, Huss is also a notable voice actor for his work on “King of the Hill.” He was a boyfriend of Elaine’s on Seinfeld and has done parodies of Sinatra in “Vegas Vacation” and “Down Periscope.” He’s also appeared in episodes of “Hung,” “30 Rock,” “Reno 911!” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and more.
Michelle Trachtenberg (Nona F. Mecklenberg)
A very recognizable actress, her works include “Harriet the Spy,” “17 Again,” “Gossip Girl,” “EuroTrip,” “Law and Order,” “Robot Chicken,” “Six Feet Under,” and most recently, “Cop Out.”
