Welcome user, to the Recess Wiki, database of information all about Disney's hit '90s animated television series Recess, which has been made for the fans, by the fans. The television show ran for six seasons, 127 episodes, between August 31st, 1997 – November 5th, 2001. We are currently managing a massive 662 articles, 5,040 images, and 48,220 edits.

Recess portrays the lives of six fourth graders as they go about their daily lives in a highly clichéd school environment. The students of Third Street School have set up a microcosm of traditional human society complete with its own government, class system, and set of unwritten laws. They are ruled by a monarch, who has various enforcers to make sure his decrees are carried out. The little society has a long list of rigid values and social norms that imposes a high expectation of conformity upon all the students.
