Pedro's Revenge (1988) is a unit of the BBC schools radio series Music Makers from the 1980s and 1990s, covering music for primary and secondary school pupils.

A new, expanded production of the popular South American musical Pedro's Revenge, first produced on Music Makers in 1984.

Young Pedro plots revenge on the gangster Rocadura who 'liquidated' his father, and catches out the baddie and his whole gang with a series of risky and cheeky tricks.
