Recess is an animated series which was a must-watch for any kid in the late 1990s. The show was a big hit in its day and retains a timeless appeal and now, it's finally available to own on a complete 10-disc DVD set containing every episode.
Usually, every episode ends with one of the characters learning an important life lesson. ''Recess'' is at Third Street Elementary School, and usually focuses on the time the characters spend playing outdoors during recess.
The outdoor environment of Third Street Elementary School is littered with typical playground equipment, and obscure structures (most notably the Ashley Clubhouse and the jungle gym, Ol' Rusty). During this time, the children are governed by a pseudo-monarchy, and required to conduct themselves according to a set of unwritten laws.
