Season 6 refers to the sixth and final season of Recess, broadcast from October 31st, 2001 to November 5th, 2001. The season ran short because the show hit its 65th episode, and due to Disney's rule regarding the number of episodes a show has, Recess ended.
The season was not originally planned, but due to the success of Recess: School's Out in theaters, the show was renewed for one more season. The episodes of the season consisted of unused episodes of Season 5. Like season five, all of the episodes of the season have a 2000 copyright date, though the season premiered in 2001. They are considered the series' "Lost episodes".
After this season aired, ABC noticed how high the ratings were for the reruns, and wanted to order more episodes for their 2002-03 season. However, Disney declined it in mid-production, leaving three of the episodes to be released direct-to-video as Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade.
In the United Kingdom, this season was combined with the fifth season, possibly due to the fact that the episodes were leftover from season five.
For unknown reasons, ABC and Disney Channel (in the U.S.) did not include this season in their rerun rotation. The episodes did not appear on Toon Disney until 2006. Many fans believe this is due to Disney having issues locating the episode masters for the season.
