''Simmer! Simmer! Simmer down, students!''

'''''Mrs. Munger's Class''''' was a series of 90-second shorts directed by Tim Maloney that aired between commercial breaks on Creator/{{ABC}}'s ''OneSaturdayMorning'' block from 1997 to 1998. It is a yearbook page of students and their exasperated teacher exchanging funny insults and dialogue. Each student had a different personality to go along with his or her portrait.

Actual school portraits were used for the characters, though distorted and manipulated to avoid clearing personality rights. Despite this, it still eventually led to a class-action lawsuit against {{Disney}} from the teacher and four of her former students whose portraits were used in the show.

After the lawsuit, Maloney created ''Centerville'', which used the same premise of talking student photos.

Episodes from both shows can be watched [[http://www.youtube.com/user/MrsMunger here]].
----
!!This show contains examples of:
* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: George and George.
-->"WE'RE NOT TWINS!"
* ButtMonkey: Grace, often because of her weight.
* CatchPhrase: Many characters have one.
** Mrs. Munger: "Simmer! Simmer!", and variants thereof.
** Grace: "Cut it out!"
** George and George: "WE'RE NOT TWINS!"
** Mahoot: "What?"
** Gordon: "Olé!"

** Or better yet, anyone who isn't Dawn or Yvonne.
* CrossDressingVoices: Mrs. Munger is voiced by OSM executive producer Peter Hastings.
* FlatWhat: Mahoot.
* {{Goth}}: Karyn, complete with a [[BlackComedy morbid sense of humor]].
* GotMeDoingIt: In "Spelling Bee", Mrs. Munger responds to Theodore's attempt to spell "gather" in which he lists most of the alphabet by sarcastically suggesting that he left out a letter... "Olé!"
* HiddenDepths: The two times Mahoot said something besides "What?" During an oral report he said a complex sentence praising the diversity of America. Another time, he gave a sympathetic "Oh." when Dawn revealed her FreudianExcuse for being a perfectionist and teacher suck-up.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Naturally being sued out of existence means the show can never be released officially anywhere, but fortunately Disney doesn't seem to care about keeping it off the Internet either.
* OncePerEpisode: The whole series runs on running gags, but in the first season, Mahoot almost ''never'' leaves when the bell rings.
* PigLatin: Lance speaks entirely in this manner.
* PokemonSpeak: Mahoot, though by saying "What?".
* TheQuietOne: Rock, though he eventually starts talking (and sounding a lot like [[StarWars Yoda]]). [[spoiler:He even reveals himself to be an alien after Mrs. Munger takes a sick leave and zaps all his classmates (except Lance, who is also an alien), then invites his alien friends. This, however, turns out to be a [[AllJustADream daydream]] as Rock is awoken by Mrs. Munger, who is revealed to be his mom. However, [[DreamWithinADream this, too, is a dream]] as a delirious Mrs. Munger wakes up.]]
* ScrewedByTheLawyers / AuthorExistenceFailure: The aforementioned lawsuit, which led to ''Centerville''.
* SpeechImpediment: Theodore. He frequently gets called upon to answer questions regardless.
* StrawFeminist: Yvonne.
* TeachersPet: Dawn, who sits right next to Mrs. Munger.
* UnusualEuphemism: Mrs. Munger [[OncePerEpisode ends almost every episode]] with one. "Oh, criminy Dutch!"
