The Trial is the eighteenth episode of the first season of Recess, which was first broadcast on November 8th, 1997.


In a dirt-clod war, Randall accuses Spinelli of throwing a rock at him, which is against the rules. Spinelli profusely denies the allegations, however, she won't tell the truth. King Bob decides to end this in court.


Coming soon.


  • Animation error: At the beginning of the episode, where the rest of the kids are huddling over Randall, T.J. is drawn with a chubbier-looking face and smaller eyes than usual.


  • Butch makes a very quick cameo appearance.
  • The episode is in the style of the film Roshomon, different points of view of the same event.
  • This is another episode that hints that T.J. has a crush on Spinelli. When he calls her to tell the truth, she is reluctant at first, though when she looks at him, she says, "Boy, T.J., why do I let you talk me into these things?".
  • When Digger Dave appears in this episode, he's voiced by Klee Bragger. It could be possible that it was Digger Sam who appeared in the episode (as only one of the diggers appear,) however, it was drawn as Dave.
  • This is the sixth speaking appearance of King Bob.
