Storyline

Comedy about a 12-year-old who only really has 2 friends, and manages to put other kids off by her slightly-nerdy behavior, constant bad timing and insistence on trying to be cool. And to make matters worse, she's just started middle school, and has immediately caught the attention of the perfectionist principal, who's always on her case and waiting for her to screw up.

Cute show.......considering some other crumby cartoons that were around during that time......
16 April 2004 | by XsWeEtLiLGiRL90xSee all my reviews

I really think this was a cute show, the animation was good, and it was pretty original. Pepper ann was a regular 7th grade girl going through life's ups and downs with her best friends, the perfect nicki little, and the original artist milo kamalani......along with them there was lydia, Pepper ann's single working mother, pepper ann's sister Moose *margaret* who sounded and acted like a boy and fooled many until we realized what she was. Then there was aunt janie the hippie cool aunt and her husband jojo, the all around good guy cop. There was also pepper ann's father who you never saw much of and had an accent that you really could never figure out where he was from... and of course there were grandma and grandpa, the old fashioned yet fun grandparents of the girls, all together it really was a fun show if you were into that kind of thing, considering other crumby cartoons that were around then, Pepper Ann and Recess really weren't half bad. Definitley worth a look!
