These principled kids tackle the really important issues facing their peers, like the right to stay up late or to eat whatever they want.

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.

Quotes

[Count Spankulot had just entered a house and spanked whom he thought were Mr. Fibb and Mr. Wink for attempting to destroy children's playgrounds everywhere, but he was mistaken; it's a judge and his wife]
Count Spankulot: There! Let the achiness of your bottoms be a reminder of the power of Count Spank...
Judge: You... you... you... you...!
Count Spankulot: [shocked] Judge!
Judge: How dare you come into my house and spank me and my wife!
Judge's Wife: [rubbing her rear] Oh, my bottom. I can't feel my bottom.

One of the more funnier and original recent Cartoon Network cartoons
12 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think it is the best Cartoon Network cartoon though, Dexter's Laboratory was definitely the most consistent, smartest and most engaging of all their shows put together. While some episodes are very repetitive and there are later episodes that meander quite considerably, Codename:Kids Next Door is one of the funnier and original recent Cartoon Network cartoon shows with a great concept. The story lines are creative, the writing is intelligent and funny, the animation is done in a unique visual style, the theme tune is memorable and the characters are likable with unique personalities, Numbah 1 being the smartest and Numbah 3 being the cutest. The voice acting isn't necessarily award worthy but it is solid and delivers the dialogue perfectly. Overall, funny and original, even if like Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy it lost its way in the later episodes. 8/10 Bethany Cox
