Big Ol' Mikey is the sixth episode of the fifth season of Recess which was first broadcast on September 23, 2000.


Gretchen and Galileo conduct a test to find out how tall everyone will be when they are all grown up. Gus will be 6'4; Vince will be 6'2; T.J will be 5'9; Spinelli will be 5'6; Galileo says that Mikey will be 50 feet by the end of the year. This causes Mikey to worry that he will be taller than he is now.


  • This is the only time blood is shown in the series, after Cornchip Girl scrapes her knee.
  • Mikey's bedroom is shown for the only time in this episode.
  • This episode was paired up with "The C Note" outside the US.
  • Dr. Quilty from Kids in the Mist and Pat Patterson from A Career to Remember appear in this episode.
  • After the 9/11 attacks, this episode and the episode paired with it, "The Army-Navy Game", didn't air in repeats for the remainder of 2001, due to scenes involving Mikey tearing down buildings in his nightmare sequence. The episode returned to reruns in 2002.
