Dislikes Losing to Vince
Erwin Lawson[1] (usually called by his surname) is the school bully, and the arch enemy of the Recess Gang, more notably, T.J. and Vince.


Lawson is tall and skinny. He wears a light blue short-sleeved shirt with two red and one white stripes, blue jeans, black and white sneakers, and a blue baseball cap worn with the visor in front over his brown hair. He also has freckles on his cheeks.


His personality is akin to a bully jock. He is mean, rude, and competitive, and he is athletic, not to mention obnoxious and at times, ruthless. His blatant originality has been seen on more than one occasion, and he does not seem to know much other than sports.

Lawson has appeared in many different episodes and could be referred to a recurring nemesis for the Recess Gang, often causing trouble for them or insulting them. He was a major part of the 20 Minute Special episode "Lawson and his Crew" where he becomes jealous of T.J. and his crew getting all the glory for fixing thing in the playground and so he forms his own crew.

Lawson's Crew

His new crew consisted of the Snitch (Randall Weems), Swinger Girl (Referred to as Swinger Kid by Menlo in the episode), Greg Skeens the Graffiti Kid, Kurst the Worst and Menlo himself.

Each member of Lawson's Crew members had the same job and position as and can be considered counterparts to each one of T.J.'s Crew: Randall being the Gus, swinger Kid being the Spinelli, Skeens being the Vince, Kurst being the Mikey, Menlo being the Gretchen and Lawson himself being the ringleader, T.J.

His new gang all work well together throughout the episode, managing to beat the Recess Gang in solving all the problems of the playground before they can. Problems they solve include: Getting the Diggers back together, 2 of the 6 members performing ballet on stage with each other, giving free ice cream to every one and saving the Library Kid.
