Curious Pete is a hobo in Down in Moonshine Holler. He is played by Chris Hardwick.
Curious Pete occasionally travels with Banjo Bindlestuff, and his probing questions threaten to expose Banjo's secret identity. In Coal for Christmas, Curious Pete and Mr. Grandpa are on the train Banjo and Gummy hop onto in their search for The Hobo Princess. He has many questions about what Banjo and Gummy are up to, but also wants to know why they aren't caroling if it's Christmastime.
He also says he does not believe in Moonshine Holler, that it is just a fairytale hobo parents tell their children to get them to sleep.
