Hey Sandy, you may be a storm to beat all storms, a monster of meteorological proportions, and you may be a theme song whose words are difficult to understand, but you will never, ever, stop Little Pete from celebrating Halloween. Nothing ever will.
Now a hurricane named Hurricane Little Pete, that would be interesting.
It’s that (two times) of the year again! Daylight Savings! And this time we’re going into the future. As always, EAT YOUR RIBOFLAVIN!
Remember to change your clocks from normal to awesome!
Tonight is Daylight Savings, so obviously we’re linking to Pete & Pete‘s seminal “Time Tunnel“, as is our autumn tradition. However, this year our night of Time Travel is special, because not only is tonight (well, 3am tomorrow morning) is the moment when we set our clocks back, but it’s also the date in 1955 to which Marty McFly travels back. Yes, on this, the night of time travel, we also celebrate the 56th anniversary of the DeLorean’s arrival in 1955 Hill Valley. Is it just coincidence that Daylight Savings falls on this very significant day? Or does this mean that at 3am we’re going to go back more than just an hour? A day? A year? A decade? Who knows? Just make sure to hold onto your smart phones. They might be your only means of checking this blog when you’re stuck in the past.

With the long Halloween nearly over it’s time to commemorate the day the way we commemorate every great holiday, with a nod to one of the most under-appreciated shows of its time – neigh, of any time – The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Like the show did with New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day (and, as we’ll see in just a few short days, Daylight Savings), Pete & Pete refused to let a great holiday pass by without putting their very specific mark on the event. We proudly present, once again, “Halloweenie.”
See you 3am Sunday.
As we set the clocks forward one hour.
And you know what that means: Time Travel!
(yes, we know this is about going back an hour, but it still counts. Twice a year we’re going to post this video, no matter what. You can take that to the bank).
[also, Pete & Pete are coming back to the present!]
Except for the way we ring it in. As is our tradition (two years running!), we proudly present “New Years Pete:”
Parts 2 & 3
For realies though, this is the year we change the world.
