Storyline

Codename: Kids Next Door follows the escapades of five eager, yet bumbling, ten-year-olds as they join forces against adulthood to fight for the right to enjoy all the fun things in life. 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)

Entertaining for children *and* adults alike.
3 December 2004 | by schlep_knd_fanSee all my reviews

I really enjoy this show because of its humor, colorful characters, and great voice actors. I'm sure there's many people who wouldn't care for this type of show, but it has a HUGE Internet fan base, with many many many fan sites devoted to it (check out ericandamelie.tripod.com or numbuh69.proboards39.com/index.cgi.) Also, the show's creator answers your emails and he's very cute. ^_^

Anyway, the show is about an organization called the Kids Next Door. The show follows one sector of the organization in particular, Sector V. The leader of Sector V is Nigel Uno, aka Numbuh 1, and his fellow team mates (operatives) are also known by their codenames: Numbuh 2, Numbuh 3, and so on. There are five operatives in Sector V, and each bring a unique skill/gift/characteristic to the show. For example, Numbuh 2 is an engineer, and he's obsessed with airplanes. Once in awhile, he may crack a *few* witty puns. Numbuh 3 is Japanese, and kind of an airhead. Numbuh 4 is Australian and the "tough guy" on the team (he's also the shortest!) While Numbuh 5 is American, and does the spying for the team. You may like it or not, but I say just watch it once. You never know.
