Square Pegs was a situation comedy first broadcast on CBS between September 1982 and March 1983, and on Channel 4 in the UK. It centered on high school and the relationships between nerds and "popular" students.

The show was created by former SNL writer Anne Beatts and starred Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Linker, John Femia, Merritt Butrick, Tracy Nelson, Claudette Wells, Jon Caliri, and Jami Gertz.

The show's theme song was written and performed by The Waitresses.

It coincided with the final season of M*A*S*H and, like that series, used an entirely artificial, low-key laugh track in US broadcasts with no pretense to having a live audience -- one of the last American sitcoms to have done so.

Don Novello appeared as Father Guido Sarducci in one episode.
