New Year's Pete is a New Year's-themed television special spun off from the Nickelodeon interstitial short series The Adventures of Pete and Pete, originally aired in 1993. After The Adventures of Pete and Pete was spun off into its own series that same year, the special was reaired as an episode of the show.
Little Pete reflects on a year in which he ultimately failed to achieve his New Year's Resolution of changing the world.
- It was long rumored that this episode contained a cameo by Hunter S. Thompson as a man Little Pete interacts with on the street. However, the man on the street was played by an extra with the name Hunter Thompson and is not the famous gonzo journalist.
