6. Recess

Recess is yet another beloved animated series we all rushed to go home from school to watch. Recess is the animated series Rugrats fans moved on to after we grew too old for Rugrats. Of course, now we know there is no such thing as “being too old” for cartoons.

Instead of following toddlers, Recess focused on six elementary school friends. These friends stuck together during recess time and often teamed up for different tasks. The friends consisted of T.J., Vincent, Ashley (who preferred going by her last name, Spinelli), Gretchen, Gus, and Mikey. Some shared a class, but, for the most part, it was during recess when they were all able to gather.

During recess, all rules that take place during regular school hours, change. The playground becomes a government-type structure. There’s even a king and different positions each student takes on.

Recess ran for six seasons, beginning in 1997, and had four TV movies created for it – Recess: School’s Out, Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street, Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade, and Recess: All Growed Down.

Due to being a Disney series, you won’t find it streaming on Netflix, with the exception of one movie! That’s right, you can still watch Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade on Netflix. Hurry, before the streaming giant removes it.

All other episodes and TV movies can be found on Hulu.
