Petey the Dog

LUKE: You’re Petey the dog.

Pete the Pup, the dog in the Our Gang comedies, later known as The Little Rascals, previously discussed. The character was otherwise known as Pete the dog, or Petey.

The original dog who played Pete was Pal the Wonder Dog (1924-1930), an American Pit Bull Terrier with a natural ring almost around his eye, finished off with dye. The second Pete was the same breed named Lucenay’s Peter (1929-1946). He didn’t have a ring around his eye, so it was added in using Max Factor make-up.
