Theodore Jasper "T.J." Detweiler is the protagonist of the Disney animated television series Recess. He is the ringleader of his five best friends, and usually spends time planning pranks against the teachers (at which he is quite talented). He has good leadership skills, a talent for public speaking, and can charm his way out of any situation. Despite his trouble-making acts, he is very concerned about the well-being of his fellow students and often rallies them and convinces them to work together to stand up for their rights. He is a kind, generous kid who has done incredible things for the sake of his friends.
