Overview
SQUARE PEGS follows the hilarious misadventures of Patty (Sarah Jessica Parker, TV's "Sex and the City") and Lauren (Amy Linker), two freshmen girls desperate to fit in at Weemawee High School. Befriended by oddball characters Marshall (John Femia), a budding comedian, and Johnny Slash (Merritt Butrick), a wacky new-waver, Patty and Lauren still hope to impress the popular kids: valley girl Jennifer (Tracy Nelson), her tough boyfriend Vinnie (Jon Caliri), and their sassy friend LaDonna (Claudette Wells). And it would "behoove us" to not forget Muffy (Jami Gertz), the ever-peppy preppie!

Acclaimed by critics, SQUARE PEGS struck a chord with viewers of all ages and developed a huge cult following. Featuring guest stars Bill Murray, Martin Mull – plus New Wave acts Devo and The Waitresses (who perform the opening theme) – all 19 digitally remastered, rad episodes are now available in this awesome 3-disc set, on DVD for, like totally, the first time ever!
