- Page 1


Recess is one of the best cartoons that has ever been made. Sure, it was fun for kids to watch, but there was actually a lot more going on in this little cartoon than anyone actually noticed.


The show started back in 1997 and quickly it became one of the most important shows for us to watch. There was just something about these outcasts trying to fit into their school that felt very real. The characters all felt so familiar to us, and we could relate to at least one of them.


Whether you were more like the leader of the group, T.J, the tough but lovable Spinelli, or the quiet and anxiety-ridden Gus, there was a character for everyone. Fitting in wasn't always easy in school, but Recess was able to point out a lot of stuff we were all going through and help us feel a little less alone.


Here are 7 things you didn't know about the hit Disney show Recess!  

They actually used kids for voices

Unlike most other cartoons, the voices of the kids were actually children. The only character who wasn't was Spinelli, but obviously that's fine because she was perfect the way she was.

Gretchen was technically in The Avengers

It was just for a minute, but the actress who voiced Gretchen in Recess played the waitress in The Avengers. So Gretchen got up close and personal with Captain America... Lucky lady!


Blossom was on the show


Mayim Bialik actually plays 'Kurst the Worst'. She is featured in a few episodes, including the one where TJ gives out joke Valentines.

These aren't the only crazy facts about the show...
