"Operation Stuart" is the fifteenth episode of the second season of Recess, which was first broadcast on November 14th, 1998.


Mikey rescues Stuart, a stray cat, who wreaks havoc at Third Street School. When the gang loses Stuart, he is found by the Ashleys, thus starting a fight between the two groups over ownership of the cat.



  • The two men from animal control resemble Horace and Jasper Baddun from One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
  • This episode was part of a special "Stuart-themed" Disney's One Saturday Morning block, where all three main shows from the block premiered episodes with a character named "Stuart" in them. Aside from "Operation Stuart", Disney's Doug had "Quailman vs. The Annoying S.T.U.A.R.T.", while Pepper Ann had "Presenting Stewart Waldinger/P.A.'s Life in a Nutshell".



  • This episode is similar to the Doug episode "Doug's Fat Cat", where Doug has to take care of Roger's pet cat, Stinky, to find out "he" is a "she" after having kittens.
