Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street is a direct-to-video animated film released on November 6th, 2001. It was released alongside Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse and Santa Who?. It compiles of four unrelated episodes of the Recess TV series, including the series' Christmas special "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave".
The film was re-released in November 2003 on DVD.
Peter, Alordayne, and Muriel head home during a snowstorm and remember the times with T.J. and the gang. When they get stuck in a snowbank, Peter blames it on T.J. and the others, although Miss Grotke says there is a logical explanation over that, considering that T.J. and the gang are not around the snowbank.
As Alordayne and Muriel tell their stories about their experiences with T.J. and the gang, they are rescued, from where they are trapped, by T.J. and the gang, and Peter admits T.J. and the others are not so bad, to which Muriel agrees, saying it really makes her feel more warm and fuzzy than before. The film ends with T.J. and the gang singing their version of "Jingle Bells", describing their classmates and teachers.
