The Emperor's New School is an American animated television series that airs on Disney Channel, ABC Kids, and Disney XD and is produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. The show is based on the characters from The Emperor's New Groove and its direct-to-video sequel Kronk's New Groove. It follows the adventures of young emperor Kuzco as he completes his education in order to return to the throne.
The series comes after The Emperor's New Groove. Several episodes mention the events of the movie.
The series can be seen as coming before Kronk's New Groove (in the series Kronk is still working for Yzma and is single, but in the movie he retires as Yzma's lackey and gets married during the closing credits), or after it (in the beginning of Kronk's New Groove, Yzma has a cat's tail, claiming it was a side effect from her kitten transformation at the end of The Emperor's New Groove; but she does not have a tail in the series).
It was revealed in some episodes that the characters are Incas even though the characters use modern-day materials, like a motorcycle, an arcade unit, etc. as side jokes. The name of the main character "Kuzco" is derived from the name of the capital of the Inca empire "Cusco".
