  • Episode Description
  • Operation P.I.A.N.O.: Numbuh 4 discovers a shipment of "Type P" kid torture devices--the P meaning pianos! On the mission, he gets injured and the rest of the KND have to continue without him. But Numbuh 4 goes along anyway and bungles the second mission as well, resulting in all of Sector V getting badly hurt as well. As they heal, the Hamsters Next Door take over for them! Operation Z.O.O.: Many of the kids in town, are captured by an evil zoologist who tags them and puts them in cages at the kids zoo. The KND are among them and if they want to escape, they'll need to work alongside the Delightful Children from Down the Lane!moreless

  • Operation: P.I.A.N.O. and Operation: Z.O.O., were alright episodes, just like all the others episodes. I think P.I.A.N.O. was better than Z.O.O.

    • While each KND was given their own numbered tag, notice that only the blonde girl of the DCFDTL was wearing a purple tag primarily because they act and speak as one.
