Pete Thelman is a 4th-grader who first appeared in "Raisins".


Pete first appeared in "Raisins" when Stan tries to join their group after being dumped by Wendy. Up until Season 17's "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers", Pete was referred to only as "Hair Flip".

Criminal Record

Pete has engaged in numerous criminal offenses, mainly along with the other Goth Kids.

  • Arson: In "The Ungroundable", he, along with the other Goth Kids, sets fire to the South Park Hot Topic store, burning it to the ground.
  • Attempted Murder / Kidnapping: In "The Ungroundable", he, with the Goth Kids, kidnap Mike Makowski with the intent of murdering him.
  • Drug Abuse / Underage Smoking: The Goth Kids are frequently seen smoking cigarettes despite their age (5 and 10), in addition to abusing cough syrup to hallucinate.
  • Grand Theft Auto / Driving Without A License: In "The Ungroundable", the Goth Kids steal Henrietta's mother's car without her permission, even though they are too young to have a license.
  • Treason / Sedition: In the Superhero Saga, the Goth Kids are shown to be part of the Cthulhu cult and supporting Cthulhu's reign of terror.



He plays the bass guitar in the Goth Kids' band. Their only known song was "Talent Shows are for Fags" played ironically at the elementary school talent show in the episode "Erection Day".


Pete is shown to have some magical abilities, as he talks with the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe through his coffee in "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers".


In "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers", he is shown knowing how to drive a car, despite being 10 years old.


He has teased hair that's shaved around the bottom half and is dyed red near the roots. He also has a long fringe, which he is constantly seen flipping out of the way when it gets in his eyes. Apparently this long fringe of hair, which touches his face, has caused him acne problems, resulting in apparent pockmarks as mentioned by another student in "The Ungroundable". He wears a dark gray dress shirt, black pants, purple buckled winklepickers and a silver bolo tie with a red center.


He seems to be one of the most sympathetic of the goth kids, and in "Mysterion Rises" he's a little worried about the situation he and the other goth kids are in when they're trying to kill Mysterion. Though he didn't want to kill anyone, he ended up walking with the rest of the goths because Michael said, "killing is expected when you're a servant of Cthulhu." He cared about his friends too, and in"Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" he and Michael try to help Henrietta after she turns into an emo. They even risked their lives to get her back to normal. At the end of "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" Pete tells Henrietta that they burned down the emo factory's leadership to avoid the embarrassment of her admitting that she was not forced into the emo, but out of her own free will.
