Mondo and most other toy characters being brought back has a more likely reason, they're blank slates for writers to do whatever they want with. Someone out there will kinda remember them but not enough to care if any changes were made.

He was already popular because of his toy and Archie appearances, and his character lived on in fanfiction/fanart for years before his revival.

Honestly the most popular of all the Mutanimals back in the day, not counting Leatherhead who was popular individually, was always Mondo Gecko. He was more popular than Dreadmon/Jagwar, and Man Ray and Wingnut/Screwloose.

I have nothing against Pete and feel he has potential, but like others have said, there's only so much he can do. My guess is that he was kicked off the team for some reason though I do feel that if he wanted to join them again, they would take him back with some exceptions. At least we know he isn't dead.

He did appear at Splinter's funeral after the mysterious disappearance though. I'm guessing that Pigeon Pete probably just got jealous of Mondo Gecko joining, argued with the Mutanimals, left for a while and will eventually come back later on in season 5.

Anyways back on topic, I like Nick Pigeon Pete, I feel its unfair to judge him as a fully developed character when he's meant to be little more than a gag. For what he is, I find him enjoyable and funny.

Right, sorry.
Anyway, I'm with you on that, Bubbly. They'd probably give him minor tasks, like cleaning the laire.
Can you imagine what would happen if he went near a bakery?
Pete: (Peaks through window, smiling dreamily): So...much...bread...

It would be very neat if they made a toy out of Pete. It'd stand about a foot tall and come with a remote control and a slice of sourdough bread. It'd have two modes: play and follow. In play mode, you can make Pete walk, peck, fly, and speak. In follow mode, he sees the loaf of bread and zooms towards it and pecks happily at it.

They prototyped a Halfshell Heroes figure of him but it (among many others) never saw release. Too bad.

Pete is the epitome of "looks can be deceiving."

Mondo also has potential, in my opinion. Slash, Leatherhead, and Dr. Rockwell could teach him some new moves and how to utilize his natural defenses, such as his claws and teeth. As for what happened to Pete, my theory is that they were on patrol, when he spotted a bakery, and, overcome by the urge to have some bread, took off, slamming into the window and jeopardizing the patrol.

Pigeon-Pete feels like a generic Godzooky.

I like bread.. Deeerp!

He'll literally bulldoze anyone in his way just to have some bread. It's hilarious.
Oh, I like your signature.

What the f*ck even happened to Pigeon Pete? Could the VA just not make it to the recording session? The show doesn't usually drop lines like that.

That, or, as I stated previously, he probably received too much negative. Pete isn't the only one to have met the same fate. Spider Bitez, Muckman, and Timothy have disappeared. It's a shame.

I'm fine without Spider Bytz...he wasn't really the most exciting of the antagonists, and not sure if he's one I would want to remodel for my own take (Snakeweed, on the other hand, has gotten an enormous lift...)

Once I found out Pete was at Splinter's funeral, that led me to believe he either left the team or was kicked off. I think they did that to leave it all up to the viewers.
