Talking TV With Ryan and Ryan

Hi, it's Mo here with a Thangsgiving special for you. Almost exactly 20 years ago, Nickelodeon debuted a show that has gone on to lodge itself deeply in the hearts and minds of its fans. "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" was the story of two brothers -- both sporting red hair, both named Pete Wrigley -- and their slightly odd but lovable collection of friends, enemies, parents, teachers and neighbors. Rounding out the cast was, of course, Artie, the Strongest Man in the World. 

In this half-hour chat, creators Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi discuss the ideas behind the show, the reasons for the fervor of the fanbase and the reasons they've returned to Nickelodeon with a new(ish) project, "Sanjay and Craig." Enjoy, my little Vikings: I certainly had a wonderful time talking to these guys, and not just because they said I could play Female Older Pete if a movie spinoff ever got off the ground. 

By the way, for proof that my love of "Pete & Pete" runs deep, check this out. It's a "Pete & Pete" interview I did with McRobb and Viscardi in the mid-'90s.
