During the early 70's Tricky Pete tried out his skills in being a boxing manager.  Since he never fought, boxed, or managed he failed miserably.  He did find a lot of candy though.


The Moon

Tricky Pete decided that there must be some good candy on the moon.  He hitched a ride with Neil Armstrong and landed on the moon.  He was sad though because all he found was a moon rock.

American Idol

Tricky Pete was chosen to be one of the original judges of American Idol.  He had a hard time getting along with Simon since Simon kept stealing his 3 Musketeers.  So he quit before the first episode aired.
