"Mikey's Pants" is the seventeenth episode of the fourth season of Recess which was first broadcast on November 14, 1999.


Mikey's pants split, but will the gang be able to help him avoid Ms. Finster and her needle? Every time they try to hide their pants they're ripped until the end, the other members of the gang ripped their pants to protect Mikey.


  • Mrs. Klemperer, the kindergarten teacher, is shown without a neck brace and the kindergarteners have regular clothes on and are acting like normal children. It's possible that the kindergarteners caused Miss Klemperer's neck injury.
  • This is one of only six episodes of the television show Recess that were directed by both Sheetz and Parkins, the two prominent directors of the series.
