Brandon Placido, also known as The Singer Kid, is the prized vocal performer at Third Street School.


He often sings instead of speaking, much to the annoyance of his fellow students, to the point where they cheered when he swallowed a bee and he was stung in the voice-box and was not able to sing for a while. In some episodes, he gets picked on by other students due to his always singing everything he says. For example, in the episode "Tattletale Heart", Brandon sings "These shoes were new!", when food hits his shoes during the food fight. 


He wears a red dinner-jacket, a white dress shirt, along with a green cravat, and blue dress pants. He wears classical men's black shoes, a green ascot, and his hair is slicked-back.


  • Brandon makes a cameo in Recess: School's Out. He is seen sleeping in the bed next to Mikey's at the Young Voice Training Program.
  • In "The Principals of Golf", Erwin Lawson gave Brandon a "swirly", as Muriel Finster stopped him and rescued Brandon.
