The best animated show ever!
I absolutely LOVE the show!I am 15,and I like to watch it because it can take you out of the high school misery feelings and back into the joyful recess hours...It is also a fun show to watch,because the plots are exciting and adventerous.Unlike some of today's action-packed films with nothing but obscene content and language,recess has plots which teach us something in the end.I dont know why they cancelled it,but they obviously didnt do the right thing.As you can read above,MORE PEOPLE like the show than hate it.So I think they should bring it back.Definately a show to be watched!I am getting BOTH movies when they come out!:)
