The Emperor's New School is an American animated television series on Disney Channel, based on the 2000 film The Emperor's New Groove. It follows the adventures of a temporarily-dethroned Kuzco as he completes his education in order to return to the throne, while Yzma, as the school's principal, will stop at nothing to prevent Kuzco from passing all of his classes.

The series comes after The Emperor's New Groove, and several episodes mention the events of the movie. The series is likely set in a different continuity from Kronk's New Groove, as 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. In addition, in Kronk's New Groove, Yzma has a cat's tail and ears, 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 or cat ears 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, ATMs, etc. as side jokes. The name of the main character "Kuzco" is derived from the name of the capital of the Inca empire "Cusco".

Yzma's plans to stop Kuzco backfire, ending up helping him instead. By the end of the series, Kuzco has grown as a person, wanting Pacha and his family to move into the palace with him, and chose Kronk as his adviser.
