"Zen and the Art of Milo" is the 17th episode of the fifth season of Pepper Ann. It aired on November 15, 2000.


Milo is observed by two Shaolin monks. They are impressed and invite him to visit the Semi Zen Academy. There, he will meditate instead of learning. Milo enthusiastically accepts the offer. When Pepper Ann learns about this, she feels betrayed by her friend. Both quarrel and don't want to speak to each other any more. All attempts to reconcile the squabblers fail. In the meantime, the school becomes more boring without Milo, and it's not all all comfortable at the Zen academy with him.
