"A Science Fair to Remember" is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season of Recess, which was first broadcast on November 8, 1999.


Little Becky Benson idolizes Gretchen... Or does she?



  • This episode marks the only appearance of Becky Benson.
  • Becky Benson shares the first name with T.J.'s older sister, Becky Detweiler. Coincidentally, Becky Benson is voiced by Tara Strong, who would voice T.J.'s sister, Becky, in Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade (due to scheduling conflicts with Melissa Joan Hart).
  • The song Menlo was whistling at the entry table was "Rescue Aid Society" from the 1977 Disney film, The Rescuers .
  • When asking Gus, Vince, and Mikey about their science fair projects, TJ calls them Gus-atoa, Vince-uvius, and Mount St. Mikey, respectively, a reference to three of the most famous volcanoes in the world, Krakatoa, Vesuvius, and Mount St. Helens.
