Retroist Podcast – Episode 173 – Square Pegs

On this episode I talk all about the short-lived 1980s sitcom, Square Pegs. I start off talking about how my sister turned me onto a lot of great television and how with this particular show I did not need any extra encouragement. After all, this show had DEVO in it! I also talk about the people in front of and behind the camera, the music, Bill Murray’s guest appearance, its DVD release and much more. Join the cool clique and make sure you check out this episode.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Bill Murray of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at And “like” him on his Facebook Page.

  1. Loved this show as a kid, and talked about it often with my friends. Square Pegs seemed to be popular with kids my age, so I was shocked when the show didn’t come back. I guess a show needs more than popularity among 10-year-olds to make it a hit.

  2. Yeah, it was a mysterious cancellation at my house. It was one of those shows that had decent reviews and good word of mouth, but just couldn’t get the numbers. Shame.
