    Notes (26)

    • Family Member Debuts: Betty Gilligan (Numbuh 2 and Tommy's mom. Technically, this is her second appearance, but we only saw the lower half of her body in TOMMY; here, we see her whole body, and she also sounds nothing like in TOMMY), Kani and Genki Sanban (Numbuh 3 and Mushi's mom and dad.)

    • Operation: F.O.O.D.F.I.T.E. is a team episode. Operation: C.L.U.E.S. is a Numbuh 2 and 3 episode.

    • This episode marks that Numbuh2 has now appeared with one other KND core member in an episode without any other member: Numbuh1- A.R.C.H.I.V.E. Numbuh3- C.L.U.E.S. Numbuh4- T.H.E.-S.H.O.G.U.N. Numbuh5- R.A.B.B.I.T. Numbuh Two also appears in more episodes like these, but these are the first ones to be marked.

    • The name of the giant super-hamster in F.O.O.D.F.I.T.E is Joaquin.

    • The following are the translations for the entire Sanban family: -The surname of "Sanban" itself is a reference to Numbuh 3 because in Japanese "san-ban" means "3rd number." -"Kani" in Japanese means "crab" and is maybe implying that Kuki's father is "crabby" because he was very quick to get angry and tended to be on the belligerent side. -"Genki" in Japanese means "Spirited, robust, healthy" which could imply that Kuki's mother is a strong, spirited women who knows who she is and what she wants. -"Kuki," depending on which Kanji is used, means either "stalk" or "trouble, crisis, or predicament." I'm leaning more towards it meaning "trouble" since she is usually the one to get into a "crisis or predicament" first. After all, she is the distraction of the group. -"Mushi" seems to be the hardest to decipher seeing as how her name could mean many things. A few being selfless; unselfish, an insect, or disregard; ignore. She has been known to display several of these traits and she may have been intended to be one or all of these things. Mushi has been selfless when thinking about her sister before her own safety, she has been ignored by the other KND agents, and she has been known to be quite the pest.

    Trivia (4)

    • Mrs. Sanban told Numbuh 2 she was powdering her nose when the lights went off, but how could she do that in the dark?

    • For some reason, the KND are the only students in the cafeteria (although this may not be a real goof - Stuffum may have set a trap specifically for them).

    • Mrs. Gilligan's voice doesn't sound at all like it did in Operation: T.O.M.M.Y.

    • Tommy can build giant war machines and spaceships (as seen in T.O.M.M.Y. and E.N.D.) but he can't install decent light fixtures?

    Allusions (5)

    • Tommy: I am the Tommy When he said that upstairs lighting and he covered himself with his cape is just like batman in the animated seires, "The Batman"

    • Tommy: I was hungry and I was thirsty!
      The scene where Hoagie is interrogating Tommy, and Tommy keeps saying "I was hungry." and after a slap, "I was thirsty." Until finally he said, "I was hungry AND I was thirsty!" is a reference to a famous (and disturbing) scene from the Jack Nicholson film Chinatown. I will not post the actual scene here, but I will provide the url for MovieTome.

    • Numbuh 3: Well don't look at me! I didn't do it!
      That was said by Mr. Green over and over again in the movie Clue. Clue was based on a board game, and it is where 6 dinner guests and a butler try to find out who killed Mr. Boddy.

    • Grandma Stuffum: Songs
      All of the songs sang by Grandma Stuffum were rewrites of songs sung by the band GWAR, a very adult band, from their album America Must be Destroyed. Specifically the song Gor-Gor Also, the first song she sings is The Private Pain of techno Destructo from their album Carnival of Chaos

    • Numbuh 2's Grandma: Sherlock Holmes
      Numbuh 2's Grandmother mentions how Numbuh 2 acted like Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is a famous literature detective.
