"Pete" is almost, like, kinda "correct." Philosphically, anyway. In a Pittsburgh sense. On Cordic & Company, the real-life inspiration for Louie the Garbageman was a guy who worked at the Verona Foundry; Louie Adamchevitz. Karl Hardman turned the hard-working, genial man into Louie, who became the most beloved of the Cordic & Company regulars. Louie's catchphrase was "Doggone right," his truck was named Catherine and they were once featured in "Better Homes and Garbage" magazine. Who better to change the world, than Louie the Garbageman? Doggone right!
