I don't believe there's a 20-something on the planet who wasn't addicted to Disney's animated TV series Recess in the late '90s, the show which hilariously documented the lunch break shenanigans all school students wished they'd experienced.
Each episode circled around the antics of six fourth graders whose playground pranks were usually lead by mischievous T.J. Detweiler and the unruly tomboy, Spinelli (best character), and then worried over by Mikey, debated by Gus, and debunked by Gretchen. Each character offered something relatable for everyone.
Looking through a list of the faces behind the voices of our favorite fourth grade characters, we noticed something awesome and a little bit creepy – just how much each actor looks like their animated counterpart. Take a look for yourself!
