This a page for other One Saturday Morning shows besides the show that our wiki is about.

Recess (1997-2003)Edit

Recess portrays the lives of six fourth graders — mischievous prankster and leader of the little "gang" T.J. Detweiler, T.J's best friend hot-headed tomboy Spinelli, popular jock Vince LaSalle, awkward genius Gretchen Grundler, gentle giant Mikey Blumberg and upbeat yet unlucky military brat Gus Griswald — as they go about their daily lives in a highly clichéd school environment at Third Street Elementary School, where students have set up a microcosm of traditional human society complete with its own government, class system, and set of unwritten laws. They are ruled by a monarch, a sixth grader named King Bob, who has various enforcers to make sure his decrees are carried out. The little society has a long list of rigid values and social norms that imposes a high expectation of conformity upon all the students.

The Weekenders (1999-2004)Edit

The Weekenders is a Disney animated series about the weekend life of four diverse misfit 7th graders: Tino Tonitini, Lor McQuarrie, Carver Descartes , and Tish Katsufrakis, voiced by veteran cartoon voice-actors: Jason Marsden , Grey DeLisle, Phil LaMarr, and Kath Soucie , respectively. It is stated at least once that the four main characters are each twelve years old. The setting is the fictional town of Bahia Bay, California. The show was created by Doug Langdale, later creator of Disney Channel's Dave the Barbarian. The theme song was performed by Wayne Brady. Each episode takes place during the weekend. Friday usually sets up the conflict for the episode, Saturday escalates or develops it, and the climactic third act is usually what happens on Sunday. The implied "ticking clock" is used to signify that the problem must be solved before school on Monday. Unlike most children's cartoons and teenager's television programs, The Weekenders rarely touches upon the aspects of school life. Furthermore, because it is the weekend, the characters are not supposed to be in school, and thus they are allowed to partake in activities that are not school-related (such as playing arcade games) without a logical error. Disney's Recess chose to set the episodes during the school's designated hour of playtime for a similar effect. (It should be noted, however, that in The Weekenders, homework is occasionally the instigator of conflict, making some episodes related to the characters' academic lives.) The episodes either tell one story for the full-time duration (as in "Nevermore," a Halloween special) or two stories that each take up half of the episode. Although most of the episodes are told from the character Tino's point of view, making him in a way the main protagonist, the episodes can and do center around the other three. Similarly, although Tino frequently provides an introductory greeting and exposition, à la Greek chorus, the other characters sometimes make the episode's conclusion or will step in for Tino to make the introduction. When this happens at any time, the fourth wall is broken. The main characters seem to be fully aware of the audience and the fact that The Weekenders is a cartoon in production, as when Tino says "Okay, next scene!" or harshly ordering to "Go to Sunday!" or that certain phrases are not allowed by television censors.

Lloyd in Space (2001-2004)Edit

From the creators of Recess, comes a series set in the far future, shortly after the end of World War IX, it's the adventures of Lloyd in Space. The show tells the continuing saga of Lloyd Nebulon a green-skinned alien (of the Verdigrean race) with strange ears and a single antenna sticking from his head. Lloyd lives in the Intrepidville Space Station along with his telekinetic and telepathic sister Francine and his mother, Commander Norah Li Nebulon, the Head of Intrepidville. Lloyd's friends are Eddie R. Horton (a red-haired teenage human), Kurt Blobberts (an enormous purple blob with a single eyeball and simple intelligence, of a species known as the Blobullons), and Douglas McNoggin (a giant brain with arms, feet, eyes and a mouth, of a species known as the Cerebellians). Other characters include Staion (the station's computer). Mrs. Bolt (Lloyd's cranky robot teacher), and Brittany (Lloyd's on and off girlfriend).

Filmore!(2002-2004)Edit

Fillmore! is an American crime/mystery/suspense animated series that ran from 2002-2004 on the ABC One Saturday Morning block. Set in X Middle School, the series focuses around Cornelius Fillmore and his partner Ingrid Third, members of the school's safety patrol. Following their adventures in keeping the peace at the school, the series is generally a parody of numerous cop films and television series translating familiar elements into the middle school setting. It is notable for being the final series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation independently, sans association with the Disney Channel.
