"Kurst the Not So Bad" is the first segment of the sixty-fourth episode of Recess.
Mikey's new friendship with Kurst the Worst doesn't sit well with their friends.
- Kurst the Worst and Sue Bob Murphy make their final appearances in this episode until Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade is released two years later. This is Sue Bob Murphy's final speaking appearance.
- Floppy Burger from Recess: School's Out is brought up again.
- This episode was paired up with "The Principals of Golf" outside the US.
- The scene where Mikey and Kurst eat spaghetti together is a parody of a very similar scene from the Disney film Lady and the Tramp.
