The Kids from Room 402

The Kids from Room 402

The Kids from Room 402 is a television program that originally aired on Fox Family in the USA starting in 1999, previously aired on Teletoon, and currently airs in the UK.

The show is focused primarily on the students from Room 402, as the title implies. Miss Graves, the teacher, is usually shown as an interlocutor in the problems and injustices that are afflicted upon the students, whether the dilemmas be internal or external. Each show usually ends with a substantiated moral or lesson resulting from such aforementioned situations.

The show is based on the popular children's book "The Kids from Room 402" by Betty Paraskevas and Michael Paraskevas. It was developed for television by Cindy Begel and Lesa Kite who wrote all 65 episodes.


* Nancy Francis (Mindy Cohn) - Nancy is the red-head with the glasses, you see Nancy is always trying to fit in with the other girls and is always is helping out Jessie because she sees him being picked on a lot. Nancy is a good kid but bossy and she usually gets up to mischief and that's what gets her in trouble. She is always trying to befriend Penny, but can never achieve that goal, and will sometimes end up being "friends" with Polly McShane who she resists instead.
*Jesse McCoy (Shawn Pyfrom) - Jesse is not the smartest kids from school, and he is often picked on by friends (including Vinnie) because of the way his mother treats him like a baby. Whenever he has a task or a homework to do, he usually gets out of it by telling a lie to Miss Graves, but she catches on and gives him different punishments. Jesse is bald and wears an orange sweater with blue jeans.
* Penny Grant (Tara Strong) - Penny is one of the wealthiest girls in the entire school. Penny is not a snob just because she is one of the richest kids in town.

* Vinnie Nasta (Andrew Lawrence) - Vinnie is the bully of the bunch. He is a tall boy who likes to pull pranks on people. Vinnie is always found wearing a football shirt and spiked up black hair. Vinnie because always has some eggs with him to chuck at the innocent kids of the school. He is also friends with Jesse, and the two pull pranks together on occasion.

The teacher's pets are very annoying but not like this one, Polly loves goats and tries to hang out with others epecially Nancy who she refers to as "Nan" and can never fit in but she always keeps trying.

* Miss Gracie Graves (April Winchell) - Miss Gracie Graves is a really great teacher. The thing is that she is stuck with a tough class. So whenever you see her she's probably just trying to get her class to take at least one pop quiz without getting excuses from Jessie and the others.
