Other mistake: At the start when the gang change the time on the clock in the classroom, it wouldn't control the main school clock, plus in every other episode the clock has been operated by the box on the side of the school, as shown in " The spy who came into the playground".cameron davies
Continuity mistake: Across the show, the number of kids in a class/what kids are in which class varies. For example, in "The Great Can Drive", the Ashleys are in Ms. Furley's class. However, in almost every other episode besides this one, the Ashleys are all in Ms. Grotke's class, and the exception are a couple of episodes in which 2 Ashleys are in Ms. Grotke's class, and the other 2 Ashleys are in another class (which is not specified by name), making a serious consistency error.
Plot hole: Whenever Gretchin calls Mikey up to the stand to explain what he saw, he says that he had followed Spinelli and Randall to the wooden fence, where he Saw Randall on his knees in front of Spinelli, begging for forgiveness, then Mikey began running to the other side to stop Spinelli from pummeling Randall with the "rock" but didn't make it in time. We then later find out that Spinelli had actually rescued Ms. Finster's cat out of a tree and Randall hit himself with the rock out of spite. But it is impossible that Spinelli could have given up on hurting Randall, climbed up a tree, rescued a cat, climbed down, handed the cat back to Ms. Finster, gotten praise from Ms. Finster, then have Randall attempt to pick up a big rock, then get a smaller one and hit himself with it in under 3 seconds (the duration of how long Mikey ran before he heard Randall's scream).
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, right as Mrs. Grotke asks for Gus to describe his "personal journey", there is a short kid with a white t-shirt and dirty blonde hair, with the globe behind his head. As the kid asks if they can go to recess now, the globe has moved way to the left.
Continuity mistake: When TJ makes the morning announcements, in the first scene of the classroom we see a boy in a blue hat sitting in the back row. After TJ says that the kids can refuse to answer a teacher, the same kid is suddenly sitting in the second row so he can slap hands with someone in the first row.shorty30490
Continuity mistake: When TJ's friends climb on on the jungle gym to try and take TJ's place, we see that Gretchen is the last one up and there is no one on the bars behind her. But in the next long shot, Mikey is right behind her. Then when it shows a close up of them, Mikey is gone again.shorty30490
Factual error: When Gus walks in, all kinds of kids have their backpacks on, like they just got there. Then Jordan asks Gus when he got there, which was 7:58, just a couple of minutes ago. Then TJ says, "Who's up for some kickball?" But it is already after 8:00, meaning they would be late.
Plot hole: Why did Mikey jump to make the feathers fly if Vince said to abort? When TJ gets hit by the feathers, he's on the 'X marks the spot.' But when he got honeyed, he was nowhere near it. Before TJ gets feathered, He gets up onto his feet, like he had fallen down. But he was still standing when Mikey fired the feathers.
Factual error: At the end when Ms. Finster tells Randall to give her the names of the kids involved with the ball incident, she says to list them in alphabetical order. The first name Randall says is "Dettweiler, T.J." But "Blumberg, Mikey" would actually come before that, and given what we know of Randall, this isn't the kind of mistake he is likely to make.shorty30490
Other mistake: When the gang go to visit vince in his house, it shows vince watching a video of a kickball game. but kids most definitely wouldn't be able to bring a video camera in to school, and it most probably would be confiscated by miss finster.cameron davies
Factual error: In the beginning, when everything on the playground is swamped out, there is a see-saw in the front of the playground doors. It is never ever seen again in an episode of Recess. For example, in "The Great Jungle Gym Standoff", Ms. Finster comes out those doors and asks T.J. what he is doing.
Revealing mistake: Right after TJ and friends are looking at the "thermometers" of cans, the Ashleys have at least 4 crates of cans that they bring in on forklifts. However, the end result is 4,362 cans for the Ashleys. This may seem kind of picky, but I think there was more cans than 4,362.
Plot hole: Hustler kid tells Gus in this episode that hustlers never deal in things that could get a kid in trouble. In the episode where all the kids need to become Ashley's he has no problem in handing out plenty of fake IDs, and at the beginning of every show he is shown displaying dodgy merchandise to a kid inside his jacket.(the kid isn't inside the jacket...the merchandise is...).
Continuity mistake: When Agents Barnes and Noble are passing out the test, there is a boy in a green hat sitting in front of a girl with long hair. The next shot is of the same boy asking if he can use a pen, but now there is another boy with blond hair right behind him.shorty30490
Continuity mistake: When the superintendent arrives at the school, he looks towards Stone who gives him a thumbs up. When he does this, Stone and the group around him are on the steps right in front of the entrance to the school. A couple of shots later, the entire group has suddenly appeared in front of the window without time for all of them to have moved.shorty30490
Continuity mistake: After Vince discovers that Mrs. Finster's new cactus is missing from the windowsill, we see that Swinger Girl has it with her, on top of the roof of the school. However, when the shot changes to the new group (With Lawson, Skeenz, Kurts, Menlow, and Randall) Swinger Girl is suddenly standing right next to them. There was not enough time for her to have climbed down from the roof.
Continuity mistake: In the time before King Bob tells his story about being the Prankster Prince, no one is on the jungle gym except TJ and his friends. But after Bob finishes, around 20 kids are on the jungle gym, plus TJ and co. There was not enough time for ALL those kids to get on top of the jungle gym from the time King Bob started his story to the time he finished.
Continuity mistake: When TJ announces that there will be no gum sharing, it shows Gretchen in the classroom. There is a kid sitting behind her. However, this is the same kid who is caught running in the hall, who Ms. Lemon says is a sixth grader. The gang is in fourth grade.shorty30490
