Pizza Hut Pete Costume!

Here's a seldom seen costumed version of Pizza Hut's old mascot, Pete. This was probably used for grand openings and birthday parties. Pretty wild!

 

This is a vintage postcard which should date between 1969-1974. The red roof and that logo were introduced in 1969.

 

It's funny because his name is signed as "Pepperoni Pete". He's generally called Pizza Hut Pete on official materials, but I've also seen some refer to him as Pizza Pete and simply Pizza Man. Pepperoni Pete is a new one for me!

 

Late 1960s - Early 1970s
