Characters from ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete''.
!The Wrigley Family

!!Big Pete Wrigley (Michael Maronna)
->She's a girl, and she's a friend, but she's not my girlfriend.

The elder Pete is more stoic, as well as the one who tends to face the most "normal" challenges and moral quandaries of the two. He's somewhat insecure to boot.

!!Don Wrigley (aka "Dad", Hardy Rawls)
->C'mon, Pete, we gotta kill Bob while he's still alive!

He's a well-meaning man who loves his family, his car, and his job (he owns a driving range). Dad is sometimes torn between his devotion to his sons and pressure from his neighbors.

* BumblingDad: But not to the Homer Simpson degree; Don is right ''some''times.
** Moreover, he usually realizes when he's messed something up with minimal prompting. It just takes him awhile.
* VanityLicensePlate: "KING O FROD", later replaced when he finds and defeats the holder of "KING OF ROAD"

* TeachersPet: Or so she thinks.

!!Artie, the [[WorldsStrongestMan Strongest the World]]! (Toby Huss)
->Soon you will be like cheese, boy: Melty, melty, melty!

->Love bites!

A newcomer to Wellsville, Little Pete is the first friend she makes. Nona has a lot of strange habits, including wearing a cast on her arm at all times because she likes how it feels.

* {{Nerd}}
* PickyEater
* SpitTake - Milk out his nose [[spoiler:and eventually his ears]] when Bill tells jokes.

!!"Endless Mike" Hellstrom (Rick Gomez)
->I am the Doctor of Death, and I have come to cure you of your life.

* ArchEnemy - To Big Pete
* BookDumb
* MeaningfulName - Hellstrom
** Subverted by "Endless", though, because--in direct contrast to every other kid bad guy--the nickname has no appearent meaning and it's never explained why he has it. Fans have theorized that it's because he's endlessly repeating high school or because his hatred of Big Pete is endless.
* PoisonousFriend - Sometimes Mike's willing to settle for corrupting Pete rather than destroying him.
** In "Time Tunnel" he manages to do both, by tricking Pete into behaving like him on his date with Ellen... which angers and disgusts her, ruining the date

!!Mr. Slurm

A mysterious, possibly-crazy professor with a prosthetic hand. Big Pete and Ellen's shop (and later, driving) instructor.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Is curt, myserious, and harsh, especially toward Pete. [[spoiler: When Pete is in his office, he sees a birthday card from his wife, and discovers that his disgust for Pete is because of the lack of respect he has toward shop class. Slurm's secret project was just a way to get him to build something and not have to stick him with the F he would've gotten otherwise.]]
* SecretTestOfCharacter
