* ComicBookAdaptation: A few comics based on the show appeared in ''Magazine/DisneyAdventures'' from 1997 to 2001. "Gus's Journal" was later made into a digital comic on ABC's official website for the show, and "The Trouble with Shorts" was included as a digital and optional read-along comic (Narrated by AshleyJohnson, the voice of Gretchen) for the DVD release of ''WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut''. One story, "The Long Hot Recess", from 1999, was loosely adapted into "The Coolest Heatwave Ever" for season five.

* KarmaHoudini: [[AlphaBitch Ashley A]] and her GirlPosse. They [[ManipulativeBastard exploit]] Gus's HonourBeforeReason approach by tricking him into a "jinx" such that he doesn't talk at all, [[ForTheLolz just to toy with him for their own amusement]]. When Gus holds back from talking at all, even to the point where the school staff is threatening to take him to the police station over it, '''[[KickTheDog they STILL enjoy causing him to get into this kind of trouble]].''' Eventually it's announced that Gus was jinxed, and the main characters retaliate against the GirlPosse by tricking them into a jinx. However, the episode ends there, and if you just think about the logic of the episode, you will realize there's no way in the world that GirlPosse has the "honor" within them to obey said "jinx."

* LessonsInSophistication: In one episode, the Ashleys challenge Tomboy Spinelli to a Beauty Pageant. Bizarrely, sports loving Vince is the hyper-competent coach schooling Spinelli in how to win in a Pageant. His justification is that his characterization is hyper-competitive and will learn how to win at any competition he sets his mind to... he's meticulously studied Beauty Pageants [[CrazyPrepared just in case one of his friends was challenged to win one and needed to be taught how to win one.]] Ultimately, Spinelli wins by explaining to the judges that her rehearsed lines weren't really who or what she's all about, who in turn find it refreshing that for once, someone isn't using the same cliche lines.

** The fifth grader with a blue shift and brown curly hair also may qualify. In her only speaking appearance she complimented Gretchen on her appearance...before making fun of her for her glasses and alleged baby fat.

The series was notably the only show to premiere in the initial season of ''Disney's OneSaturdayMorning'' that would last the entirety of the block's run, going on well into the first two years of Creator/{{ABC}} Kids (''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' doesn't count, as it originally ran on ABC from 1988 to 91; they put in on to fulfill ABC stations' E/I quotas). 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.

** Spinelli and Gus got this type of publicity during ''Recess'' promos on ToonDisney, overshadowing Mikey, Vince, Gretchen, and even T.J.. Though this is somewhat justified as Spinelli and Gus were only second behind T.J. as the most popular and iconic characters of the series (The three were the most prominant on every promotional item released since the 1990s), and it woudld've been too difficult for T.J. to get new dialogue written for the promos due to Andrew Lawrence's voice breaking (And possibly Myles Jeffrey's depending on when they were recorded), and it was easier with Gus and Spinelli because Courtland Mead's voice hadn't had broke yet for Gus, and Pamela Adlon was already an adult when she began voicing Spinelli so her voice would never have broken. Once Courtland Mead's voice broke, Spinelli took front-and-center on almost every promo for the show until ToonDisney's demise in 2009.
