"Peer Counselor P.A." is the 10th episode of the second season of Pepper Ann. It aired on October 10, 1998.


Pepper Ann's short attention span gets her in trouble when she signs up for peer counseling under the assumption that it's a vacation to a pier-side carnival.


Pepper Ann has trouble listening to others, as evidenced when Lydia told her to "take out the trash" when she thought she said "break out the cash". At school, Pepper Ann is shocked to learn that she made a C+ on her paper; it turned out that she was supposed to write five pages on fifty Americans, not fifty pages on five Americans. Mr. Finky offers extra credit, but Pepper Ann once again gets lost in thought, despite Milo trying to get her to listen. Pepper Ann hears the word "pier" and concludes that the extra credit is about a pier side carnival and immediately signs up along with Nicky.

Pepper Ann shows up dressed in beach gear for the extra credit, only to learn that Mr. Finky said "peer" as in "peer counseling". Pepper Ann is forced to listen, even by her own drawings, and manages to get the basic concept of peer counseling. Obviously, she is not very good at it and completely ignores the other students who come in asking for counseling. She quickly becomes jealous of Nicky and decides to double down on her efforts to counsel students. When Dieter comes in to talk about how his mother does not understand him, Pepper Ann tells him to chase his dream, which he happily does so.

Pepper Ann returns home to discover that Gerta Liederhosen has put out a missing child report. Pepper Ann believes it is her fault, but Lydia tells her that she just gets "spacey" sometimes. Pepper Ann, Nicky and Milo go searching for Dieter and she finally sits down to recall minor details in his issues. Finally remembering, they arrive at Camp Runawifframham; Dieter wanted to become a boy scout. Pepper Ann happily reunites with Dieter and tells him that his mother is worried and he runs off. She tells her friends that she is ready to listen to them, but becomes annoyed when they have nothing to say.



  • Lydia mentions the events of "Sani-Paper".
  • This episode implies that Pepper Ann suffers from a mild form of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).
