About Us

So who is behind the PsychPineapple Website?

We are a family of 5. Mom, dad and three kids who were adopted from foster care.We became a family in 2007 when we adopted the kids when they were 8, 10, and 11 years old. We enjoy watching Psych while looking for pineapples. When we aren’t pineapple hunting, we like to geocache, play board games, travel and camp. We have lived in Chicago, Indiana, Wisconsin and Florida, but we currently live in beautiful Washington State.
Dad, the CheifPineapple, created the sight. Mom fills in past seasons as time permits, and the kids are the pineapple sighters. Being the first person to spot a pineapple has become a sport in our family. One day in 2009 during a Psych Marathon I (CheifPineapple) decided to cheat and searched google for a list of locations. To my surprise there was not one. So we spent the day creating this site.

This sight has quickly become successful, at least in numbers of visitors. Since launching our little homegrown weekend project has generated about 3000 unique visitors every week, thanks in large part to the many contributors. We are always open to suggestions on how to make this sight even better.

If you’d like to give a little back to our family, be sure to visit our advertisers.

Thanks for visiting!

    Thanks for the site! Rarely do we spot the pineapple, but it’s great when we do. The bonus for us is that the show is filmed in our neighborhood, in North Vancouver, so we not only look for the pineapple, but places we know too. My wife has started to feel like a stalker as she keeps finding set locations and then hanging around to look for Gus (& Shawn). Attached is her latest ‘stalker’ photo.
    Thanks again,

    I just stumbled across your website,and I must say I am impressed. I now know who to turn to when I’m stumped about that pesky pineapple!!!!!

    I’ve been watching all the episodes of Psych thanks to a Netflix subscription I got for Christmas.  I started noticing that every episode has a random pineapple.  In SSN 3, “Lassie Did a Bad, Bad, Thing,” the pineapple was in Lassiter’s bag of groceries (usually it is Shawn who has the pineapple).  There was also one in the bank in the episode, “Gus Walked into the Bank.”  This show cracks me up, and I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who is amused by the prevalence of pineapples!

    You should also ask why there are so many references to Cincinnati or the Cincinnati Reds on the show. I can’t figure it out!

    We love the show and had heard about the Pineapples in every show except that we never found it in so many seasons! And we have followed it since the very 1st season.

    Your website is awesome and you have some very observant kids — nice job there!  

    In addition to a prevalence of pineapples, we also noticed a lot of references to Red Robin, the restaurant, at least in Seasons 2 & 3 (yes I have been re-watching old episodes)…

    Great site, and very useful.

    Sorry for being the spelling police, but every occurrence of the word “site” is misspelled as “sight.” Would’ve emailed about it, but there’s no email link. Sorry. Please feel free to delete this comment if/when it becomes irrelevant.

    Thanks again for a great site!

    Just wondering why you didn’t post the location this week. Love your site I usually have to DVR the show and this way I still get to enter the contest. Thank you for a great site.

    Amazing site, we love Psych.  We have watched the through the end of season 6, but now we are going back to rewatch them all to look for the pineapple.  We will be back to the site often, to verify our sightings.  Thanks.

  13. Pam G

    How on earth did we watch 7 seasons of Psych and not know that there was a pineapple in every episode?!  Thoroughly enjoyed your website!  Thanks!

    I hope you’re doing well. I’m writing to inquire if you would consider acquiring “PineApples. info”.
    Please let me know.

    There should achievement for finding all the pineapples

    I’ve been trying to leave a comment about an episode and it’s not working. It’s for “Shawn and Gus Truck Things Up”. There is no pineapple on the cereal box. I googled it and zoomed in and there is no pineapple. Had to leave comment here because this page is working.

  17. Selora Lawrence

    What about a page for the movie.

  18. insert56

    Uhm I can’t find a ‘Contact Us’ page so I’m using this and hoping you see it.

    For some reason every time I try to add a comment to an episode with a photo, I keep getting a 404 error and the comment isn’t submitted. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    Chief, not Cheif.
