Artie, the Strongest Man in the World is a character from The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Little Pete's personal superhero, who is very eccentric but quite powerful — for example, he can skip stones on Neptune, move an entire house by an inch, and hit a golf ball 300,003 yards. Artie is also one of the few adults Little Pete seems to have any respect for. His catchphrase is "For I am Artie — the strongest man ... in the world!" His trademark word "pipe!" aggravates the adults of the community, and his favorite scent is the air let out from a car tire. He left the show after the 2-part episode, "Farewell My Little Viking". His spot in the opening credits would later be replaced in the third season with Nona's.
Ultimate Nickelodeon Brawl Stars XEdit
Artie appears as a playable character in Ultimate Nickelodeon Brawl Stars X. He was one of the surprise characters included into the game. He is also the only one to represent his show, and the only one from a live-action show.

Now, his journey has brought him to the battle of a lifetime, where his unique talents are needed. He may be an eccentric oddball, but the call of justice is never wrong!
