'''''Recess''''' was an American animated television series that was created by Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere (who worked on ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' until the show was originally supposed to end in 1994), and produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It ran from September 13, 1997 to November 5, 2001 simultaneously on ABC (Saturday mornings) and UPN (Sunday mornings and weekday afternoons, beginning in 1999). Recess focused on six elementary school students and their interaction with other classmates and teachers. In many respects, it serves as an animated knock-off of prisoner-of-war movies such as ''Film/TheGreatEscape''... combined with a generally positive depiction of the elementary school experience.

The series was notably the only show to premiere in the initial season of Disney's One Saturday Morning that would last the entirety of the block's run, going on well into the first two years of Creator/{{ABC}} Kids. It was also rerun the most out of all the shows on OneSaturdayMorning, pretty much being on all of Disney Channel's affiliates at one point or another. It was one of the few older shows to air on Creator/DisneyXD after ToonDisney shut down.

* {{Kissgusting}}: T.J. and Spinelli's reaction to kissing each other in "The Experiment". Though there are slight implications that they did enjoy it.

Added DiffLines:

* RhymingWithItself: During "Rainy Days," the gang becomes rather zombie-esque after five days of horribly boring indoor recess. Mikey composes a poem like this; it rhymes every thing with "thee" and "tee-hee."

* MenInBlack: In "The Substitute", Gretchen builds a PerpetualMotionMachine as her project. While presenting it, two men from the government enter the classroom, photograph the equations she wrote on the chalkboard before erasing them, take her machine and leave. Mr. E, the substitute teacher filling in for Miss Grotke, simply says "That happens".

* FailOSuckyname: Lawson tends to do this. He renamed Fort Tender "Fort Fort" and his soccer team the "Winning Guys".

** At one point in "The Kid Came Back", TJ's ranting about how since they can't get rid of that one kid, they'll be "[[Film/{{Clerks}} slacking in their twenties, clerking in a video store!"
