Lost Leader is the fifth and last episode of the sixth season of Recess which was first broadcast on November 5, 2001. This is also the last episode of Recess.
T.J. loses his confidence after a series of failed plans and refuses to lead the Recess Gang, to which he leads de facto.
- This is the final time Andrew Lawrence plays the voice of T.J.
- The episode is very similar to season one's "I Will Kick No More Forever", with one character feeling inferior to what he does and gives up. In this case, it was T.J. instead of Vince.
- This is the last episode of the Recess TV series, as well as the last one to be made completely using traditional ink and paint cel animation.
- Though the episode premiered on November 5, 2001, some syndication markets didn't air it until November 21st.
