Without a doubt the funniest character in The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Artie is little Pete's personal superhero -- but have no doubts, this is not an imaginary friend. Artie performs very real feats of strength. Like all superheroes, Artie has weaknesses: He cannot resist the pull of the song "Love Rollercoaster," and whammy bars have a similar effect on Artie as Kryptonite on Superman. He also had his own costume, Buddy Holly glasses and red and blue striped long underwear made out of a 60/40 blend of titanium and cotton.
Artie was played by Toby Huss; while he wasn't a main character in Pete and Pete, he appeared regularly and was a personal favorite.
