WBA 005: Tool and Die | Adventures of Pete & Pete

In this adventure Big Pete is forced to take the deadly metal and woodshop class. He isn’t happy about having to work with the “socketheads” and even less thrilled to be until the dictatorship of Mr. Slurm. Everyone in the class is obsessed with wanting the opportunity to work Mr. Slurm’s special project, but Big Pete becomes suspicious with what they are really building and sets out to find the truth.

One of the best episodes Kevin and Erica break down the communist/Twilight Zone/horror themes of this story. Ultimately it comes down to using unconventional teaching in order to get kids thinking.
