I too was looking for information about the Dave and Pete show when I found your inquiry. Dave Lee brought Pete to the Twin Cities in Minnesota and put on his show until the early 70's. He had a studio audience of children and would give 'grab bags' to everyone. One lucky kid would be picked to show everyone what type of candies were in the grab bag. He also had a gag where he would pull girls' ponytails which would cause the television picture to bounce or go upside down. Pretty advanced special effects back in those days. Great kids' television for a great generation! I don't know what became of him but few people stay in Minnesota as they get older because of the cold weather. Hope he doing well though...
