Episode Guide

Season 1 was the first season of Recess which broadcast from September 1997 - January 1998. This season consisted of twenty-six episodes.

The show officially debuted on August 31, 1997 in primetime on ABC (Though only on the East coast, as the West coast was still covering Princess Diana's death), and then made it's premiere on One Saturday Morning on September 13, 1997.

This listing shows the episodes in their original broadcast order on ABC during it's first run. When the show was re-ran, several episodes were re-arranged. In most foreign dubs, this season is aired in its original order.

All these episodes were eleven minutes and paired up with another episode (so episode 1 would go with 2 and so on).
