Soccer Boy is the thirty fourth episode of the fourth season of Recess, which was first broadcast on February 27, 2000.
Vince refuses to let Mikey join his five-a-side soccer team for the King Bob Classic, so Mikey becomes the goalkeeper for Lawson's team.
Animation error: At various times in the episode, we can see the scoreboard displaying the score 1-0 which at times was not the correct score.
Right before Vince kicks the ball into the goal guarded by Jimmy, Willy's hair turns brown. This also occurs after Lawson's team walks away with the trophy.
When the Vipersharks yell, "Go Vipersharks!", only T.J. and Spinelli can be heard.
During the set-up of the boards, Jerome can be seen with short sleeves.
In this episode, it's revealed that Erwin is Lawson's first name.
The names of the teams in the episode are Vipersharks (Vince, T.J., Spinelli, Willy, and an unnamed girl), The Winning Guys (Lawson, Jocko, Koreo, Cheay, and Mikey), Ashley Nauts (The Ashleys), Crushers (King Bob's guards), an unnamed team consisting of Randall, Menlo, Scribe Kid, and Barry, an unnamed team consisting of the diggers, Upside-Down Girl, and Swinger Girl, an unnamed team consisting of Jimmy Cratner and unseen members, an unnamed team consisting of the Third Street Safety Officers, and an unnamed team where only Kurst the Worst is shown as a member.
This is the first and only time Ashley A. is shown wearing pigtails.
Karma: Vince, T.J., and Spinelli didn't welcome Mikey onto their soccer team, which caused Mikey to join Lawson's team. As a result, the Winning Guys defeated the Vipersharks in the finals and Mikey won the soccer tournament with Lawson and his friends.
