The Fuss Over Finster is the thirty third episode of the fourth season of Recess which was first broadcast on February 27, 2000.

Summary

Ms. Finster injures her leg and can't keep up with the kids during recess.

Plot

The episode starts with Ms. Finster confiscating Mikey's chocolate bar, telling him that candy at recess is "strictly forbidden". Despite further hesitation from T.J. and the others, she continues to take candy from students, including the Diggers and Skeens. T.J. spots this, and has a brilliant idea. He tells his friends that the target is to take all the candy Finster has confiscated. Just then, the "Ubiquitous" Finster grabs the blueprints and walks away when her sack of candy bursts and she falls over, hurting her leg. Finster is taken away in an ambulance and the other students cheer. The next day, everyone goes outside for recess, happy because Finster is absent. Just then, Finster arrives on crutches, surprising the gang. However, going around the playground with a broken leg proves to be difficult for her. Chaos breaks out in the playground. T.J. realizes that it was the perfect time to reinstitute "Operation Contraband Candy". They succeed but start to feel guilty when they see that they were taking advantage of the "poor" Finster. They then call a gathering of the crowd and then convince the crowd that she should not be taken advantage of. After that, they start acting like disciplined children. It turns out Finster didn't break her leg, and she could come the following afternoon to have her Cast taken off, but she refuses, making an excuse that she would be busy all week.
