"The Principals of Golf" is the seventh episode of the fifth season of Recess, which was first broadcast on November 4th, 2000.


The kids think Vince is getting special treatment when he becomes Peter Prickly's golf caddy. That leads them to believe he has power over them.


  • Animation/continuity error: During the opening scene, T.J. is sitting closely beside Gretchen. Once perspective changes to focus on Gretchen, T.J. is missing.
  • Animation/continuity error: During the opening scene, the background behind Gretchen has the staircase towards the right. Once perspective changes to focus her replying to Gus, the staircase is pointing towards the left.
  • Animation/continuity/consistency error: During the opening scene, food and objects on the trays at cafeteria lack consistency.
  • Coloring/consistency error: During the second scene at the cafeteria, when Spinelli points at Vince claiming he had spent a lot of time with Principal [Peter] Prickly, her skin color is lighter than usual.
  • Animation/continuity/consistency error: While the gang are standing on the bars hemisphere, the hemisphere has a yellow cap on top. During one of the scenes where Mikey is visible and Gretchen is seen from behind, the cap is missing.
  • Dialogue/consistency error: 98th Street School is incorrectly referred to as 89th Street School in this episode, seeing as how Paul Prickly was principal of the rival school.




  • When the kids tease Vince for playing golf with Principal Prickly, they sing, "Vince and Prickly standing on a green, P-U-T-T-I-N-G." It is an allusion to the song they sing when they tease Gretchen for being Geoffery's girlfriend in "The Pest".
