Review

  • "Recess" is one of those cartoons that can never run out of ideas. It's a very basic show about six 4th graders at 3rd Street school. The show follows their troublesome schemes and unbreakable friendship, mostly during the 40 minutes of fun called recess. The six main characters are: T.J.(the leader), Gretchen(the brain), Spinelli(the tough girl), Vince(the athlete), Mikey(the eater/poet) and Gus(the coward). There's also a lot of other good characters like Randall, the playground spy and snitch. Or the powerful 6th grader King Bob, ruler of the playground. The new episodes are on Saturday mornings on ABC or Sunday morning on UPN. And for those of you who aren't morning people, catch it weekday afternoons on UPN.
