The gloves are off as they set out to win the approval of their father and even turn to TV attack ads. When all else fails they go to Defcon 1 and initiate…The Staring Contest.

WBA 004: Rangeboy | Adventures of Pete & Pete

In this adventure Big Pete gets a job as rangeboy at his dad’s golf range. A job so embarrassing that it had driven previous rangeboys to go crazy or have to move to another county and get plastic surgery. Big Pete comes up with a brilliant idea to wear a grizzly bear costume; a species long since driven out by golfers. Little Pete is training Artie (The Strongest Man…in the World!) for the upcoming distance contest when Artie’s swing strength causes a terrible amnesia accident for an old friend. Meanwhile, Pete’s father comes up with a contest idea that threatens to out Big Pete as a rangeboy.

It’s not the strongest episode, but there are some clever themes that Kevin and Erica expolore.
