Content: Dr. Haubner is a genius scientist. He is always coming up with new inventions that could revolutionize our world. Whether it's teleportation, a cure for baldness, help for cat allergies, a flavor enhancer for chips, or mind reading, there's nothing Dr. Haubner can't come up with the right pill for. But someone has to test the inventions. Luckily, the scientist has Pete for that. He's happy to swallow any pill - true to the motto "Hurray for science". But usually the ingenious inventions also have one or the other unwanted side effect.

Next to the popular characters from the Shit happens! cartoons - such as the ENT-WG or the shaft Thorsten Dörnbach - the three-eyed guinea pig Pete is undoubtedly one of the most popular characters of the author, musician, filmmaker and cartoonist Ralph Ruthe. The 16 episodes about the little blue test subject with the haunting voice are full of bizarre ideas and offbeat gags. When Pete travels to the Playboy Mansion or Atlantis thanks to a teleportation pill, when he grows the craziest hairstyles or uses a very special remedy against cat allergies, then there is truly no dry eye.

Next to highlights like the wonderfully absurd Halloween episode (with guest speaker Oliver Kalkofe) there is also a new episode in which Pete has to fight with hay fever. Even if most of the clips are already known to fans, this compilation of Pete clips is well worth it. It quickly becomes clear why Ruthe and his creations enjoy such a high level of popularity (as evidenced, for example, at this year's book fair by the long queue at the publisher's stand where he signed his books). Over 120 million views on YouTube, more than 420,000 YouTube subscribers and 840,000 Facebook fans, hundreds of thousands of books sold and the success of the Shit Happens! DVDs speak for themselves. And that's why Dr. Haubner doesn't even have to invent a pill for Pete fans to make this DVD another success for Ralph Ruthe. Worth seeing!

Picture + Sound: There is hardly anything to criticize about the technical realization of the clips. The picture is clean, the colors are very vibrant and the sharpness is on a good to very good level. The sound, which is in a PCM stereo mix, doesn't offer a great surround feeling, but the voices - and especially Pete's loud organ - sound very powerful from the speakers. For a cartoon DVD, this is all perfectly adequate. Good!

Extras: In addition to the clips already known from the Internet, the DVD still has a previously unreleased episode, an episode in English (Hooray for science!) and some funny outtakes to offer. In addition, there are the trailers for the Shit happens! DVDs and a Sondermann promo from 2008. An amusing Internet song rounds off the additional offerings.

Conclusion: Ralph Rute's Pete is an absolute must for fans of this quirky guinea pig. In addition to 15 already familiar clips, there is also a new episode, an episode in English, outtakes and an internet song. The DVD is technically well realized, so that also here a positive overall impression arises. For this there is Ein Hoch auf die Wissenschaft - or in other words: Recommendable!
