Omega Kids is the sixteenth episode of the second season of Recess, which was first broadcast on December 12, 1998.


All the kids at Third Street School have fallen ill after eating Tuna Fish Tacos, leaving the gang as the only students in school.



  • During lunch, when T.J. asks Vince for another pepperoni, Vince instead gives him his entire pizza.
  • This is the first episode where T.J. uses his catchphrase, "Tender".
  • This was the first episode written by Steve Bannos.
  • In reality, the school would have been shut down while all the students were recovering from poisioning, or simply cancelled class.
  • The CDC should have very easily been able to tell that the kids were faking.
