Trivia

The given name of each kid is a reference to his/her code name. Numbuh 5 is Abigail Lincoln (the $5 bill shows Abraham Lincoln). Numbuh 4 is Wallabee Beetles (the Beatles had four members). Numbuh 3 is Kuki Sanban ("sanban" means "third number" in Japanese). Numbuh 2 is Hoagie P. Gilligan, Jr. (he is the second person in his family to have the name). Numbuh 1 is Nigel Uno ("uno" means "one" in Spanish).
Numbuh 5's evil teenage sister Cree is named after the voice-over artist who plays them both, Cree Summer.
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).
The name of the fourth grade president, Jimmy McGarfield, is made up of the name is three former American Presidents; Jimmy Carter, William McKinley, and James A. Garfield.
The characters Mr. Fibb and Mr. Wink from the episode "No P in the O.O.L. (2001)" are based on the James Bond villains "Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd" from Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

The Kids Next Door were originally meant to be the neighbors (hence their name) of Kenny and Chimpy, who appear in "Kenny and the Chimp in Diseasy Does It! Or Chimp -n- Pox (1998)", Tom Warburton's The Cartoon Cartoon Show (1995) short. While Kenny and Chimpy did not become a series, the Kids Next Door did and retained their name. A character from the original show "Professor XXXL" (Triple-Extra Large) was made a villain of the newer series.

In "Codename: Kids Next Door: Operation A.R.C.H.I.V.E./Operation S.L.U.M.B.E.R. (2004)", Father's real name is revealed to be Mr. Wigglestein. However, later episodes (Codename: Kids Next Door - Operation Z.E.R.O. (2006)) contradict this, perhaps demonstrating that Numbuh 1's flight of fancy was exactly that.

According to the show's Tom Kenny originally was going to voice Numbuh One. Warburton later recast ed the role to Ben Diskin because he felt Kenny's voice take for the character sounded too old for him.
