Recap / Pete and Pete S3 E7 "Last Laugh"
It's April Fools Day, which brings out the merry prankster in Little Pete and has everyone in his vicinity fearful of his antics. Principal Schwinger (Adam West
) is planning his annual assembly featuring The Up With Personal Hygiene Singers, and vows that Little Pete will not ruin his precious ear-cleaning show. When Schwinger finds out Little Pete has something in store for him and the troupe, he hires Pit Stain and his cronies to help put a stop to their common enemy. Pit Stain is able to manipulate Nona to tell him — with Schwinger listening in — on the prank in store. Schwinger apprehends Little Pete from class and detains him in his office, where Pete falls down a trap door and is trapped in the school basement.
As the assembly gets underway, Little Pete's plan begins to formulate with Nona busting him out "right on time". Monica and Wayne (the latter being the only one who doesn't know what's going on) meet up with them to put the prank into motion, unveiling three oil drums filled with Schwinger's cafeteria food of choice, creamed corn. However, the group is caught by Pit Stain, who alerts Schwinger that Little Pete is out of the way. As Schwinger gets on stage for a cotton swab/giant ear skit, it's revealed that Pit Stain is on it and helps Pete set up the oil drums and hooking them into the giant ear. As Schwinger and the singers begins to clean the ear in song, Little Pete turns on the hoses and sprays Schwinger and the troupe with creamed corn coming out of the ear to the delight of the students. Little Pete comes out with his co-conspirators and proclaims to Schwinger "April Fools!". Big Pete narrates that it went down as the "greatest prank Wellsville had ever seen."
