You've got a great idea. It's this kid, so your target audience can identify with the main character, traveling around the world, finding {{Plot Coupon}}s and [[SaveTheWorld saving the world]]. Just one problem: How many days of school has the hero missed? Not everybody can fit adventures into a summer vacation like in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' and ''WesternAnimation/EdEddAndEddy''[[note: Although it did actually get a season where the titular characters are back at school in September]]; you want the adventure to last through times that school is usually in session. But this can be solved by simply [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom never, ever]] [[LawOfConservationOfDetail mentioning it]]! FanWank will take care of the excuses for you!

** One interpretation offers a [[JustifiedTrope justification]] or even aversion: most of the events that take place on Earth [[WebcomicTime span only a few hours in-story]], starting at 4:13PM Pacific Daylight Time for John, 6:13PM Central Daylight Time for Dave, and 7:13PM Eastern Daylight Time for Rose, so they could have attended school and then come home for the evening. It's early afternoon for Jade, but she's the [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] case anyway.

It all becomes moot given that shortly after the Kids enter the Medium, all civilization on Earth is wiped out, so any schools they might have attended have been destroyed.

** ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' parodied the anime version with Joey wondering why they turn up at all, and with Yugi expressing surprise when seeing an actual teacher, having apparently forgotten what they looked like. Even [[CloudCuckooLander Tristan]] wonders why they haven't been expelled by now.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is never shown at school no matter the season. It turns out he has never had a formal education and doesn't even know what the word "school" means.

* ComicStrip/{{Nero}}: Petoetje and Petatje often want to go on adventure along with the adults, but are told to go to school. Sometimes they do travel along with them by sneaking aboard on the ship or plane that takes them to another country. Other times they travel alone. Adhemar, a five year old boy genius, is always at school, but as a professor rather than a pupil. Nevertheless he does skip classes whenever he needs to go on adventure or save his family and friends. Often just by ending his lesson there and now.
