Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Benedict's plot in the movie is to increase standardized testing and get rid of recess in order to improve grades in American schools. Fast forward fifteen years to the present and the American government in many states appears to be doing this, placing more focus on standardized testing and not allowing recess in some areas.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: Benedict never wastes any opportunity to blame Prickly for ruining his life and career, even though it was his own deluded beliefs and insane methods that drew him the wrath of not just everybody around him, but also the ''President''.


Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Benedict's justification for destroying recess? ''To improve test scores in the US''. However, his aspiration of becoming President through this as well as his attempt to ''jumpstart a new ice age'' certainly makes this one an aversion.

* ColdBlueEyes: Benedict: a rather chilling scene of him back in the 60's has him wearing big turquoise LennonSpecs as he acts like the typical 'cool-cat' of that era. But after he reveals his plans to get rid of recess, he pulls them off to reveal his eyes, and the change in his overall demeanor is shocking.

* CutSong: There was going to be a new song by TheyMightBeGiants playing as T.J. rode his bike sadly after his friends left for camp. After the movie started using '60s songs for its soundtrack, the song was scrapped and replaced with "One" by Three Dog Night.

* VillainHasAPoint: Benedict wants to get rid of summer vacation: ''Boo!'' He wants to get rid of summer vacation by moving the moon and disrupting the Earth's weather patterns: '''Boo!''' He wants to do it because he's angry at how American kids are falling behind their international peers in academic tests: '''B'''-- Wait, that... is actually a legitimate concern.

They find out that a former principal and his cronies are trying to work on a plan to end summer vacation for good, creating a permanent winter. After accidentally getting spotted (thanks to Mikey), the villains chase after the kids, including an army of ninjas. While the other five escape, T.J. is caught, and is put in the same room Prickly was captured in. Apparently, Prickly knows the former principal (Philliam Benedict), who has wanted to get rid of recess since the '60s. Will the gang thwart the plans to get rid of recess and summer vacation? [[spoiler:Well, seeing as the show was renewed for another season and two direct-to-DVD movies after that, you already know the answer.]]
