"Officer Mikey" is the sixth episode of the first season of Recess, which was broadcast on September 27th, 1997.


After witnessing a demonstration on the safety rangers, Mikey wants to become one - only to be told no. The gang decides to find a loop-hole and make him one.


After watching a presentation of the safety rangers in his class, Mikey really wants to become one of them, but Brad won't let him be one. So the gang tries to make him one, by running through the playground asking for favors. In the end, Mikey joins the safety rangers, but he quits because he has to get up early, miss breakfast, and it rains. Also, when he tries to stop kids from skateboarding, they spit at him. He now has a new dream: he wants to be a jet pilot; as he finishes talking he notices the gang has left.
