These principled kids tackle the really important issues facing their peers, like the right to stay up late or to eat whatever they want. But when taking a stand is just not enough, this crew embarks on top secret missions on behalf of children everywhere, utilizing fantastic homemade technology like flying machines and catapults, to accomplish their goals. Like any good team, the agents in Codename: Kids Next Door each have their own distinct identities, skills and personalities. Numbuh One is Nigel Uno, the British-accented leader of the group. Hoagie P. Gilliam, a mechanical genius and expert pilot, is known as Numbuh Two. Diversionary tactics are the specialty of Kiki Sanban, also known as Numbuh Three. Brash and impulsive Numbuh Four (Wallabee Beatles) is a master of hand to hand combat. And ... Written by Cartoon Network (press release)

Trivia

Each season in the series features one or more "art shows". They are experiments in various artistic styles and thus differ significantly from typical episodes. Some examples of these would be the first season's Operation: Codename: Kids Next Door: Operation T.H.E.-F.L.Y./Operation P.O.I.N.T. (2003) (an episode where no dialogue is spoken and the story is told through music), the second season's Codename: Kids Next Door: Operation: R.E.P.O.R.T./Operation: B.R.I.E.F. (2003). (each of the five main characters gives their version of the events of a mission in five different animation styles), the fourth season's Codename: Kids Next Door: Operation F.O.O.D.F.I.T.E./Operation C.L.U.E.S. (2004) (a heavy metal rock opera), and the sixth season's Codename: Kids Next Door: Operation S.C.I.E.N.C.E./Operation A.M.I.S.H. (2007) (a presentation of commercials that, in the episode's story line, characters have created to advertise their 2x4 technology). See more »

I underestimated this show.
3 August 2003 | by (Fullerton, CA) – See all my reviews

When I was watching Cartoon Network as usual, I saw a commercial for Codename: Kids Next Door. When I saw it, I thought this would be a totally lame show with kids who are brats and think that adults want to take over everything. I was wrong.

This show by far one of the best shows on Cartoon Network. It is funny and it has great animation. The dialogue and all the gadgets are funny. For Example: The Flu Bug(a.k.a. The Common Cold)had a mucus squirting machine. The machine was defeated my Numbuh 2's mother's Chicken Soup Machine. That was sheer bliss. It was uproarious. Watch this show. It is way better than Ed, Edd, and Eddy.
