Episode Summary

Operation: B.U.T.T. / Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G.
Operation: B.U.T.T.: Feeling that Numbuh 1 must take a day off, the team force him to go to the beach, telling him to have fun or else. Nigel makes an honest attempt--until a crab swipes his swim trunks! After suffering a great amount of public embarrassment, Numbuh 1 makes his way back to the Treehouse, and minutes later, walks out of his room to tell his team that he's resigning from the Kids Next Door! After he leaves, the purpose becomes quite clear--an envelope is found in his room from the Delightful Children, with a picture of his tush and a note saying "Leave your team behind or we'll put your behind in the school yearbook." Now Numbuh 1 is heading for Delightful Manor, where the evil peeping toms desire to make him one of them! Can the team save their leader from the sadistic shutterbugs?! Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G.: At the KND Arctic training facility (the second largest KND base in existence, and location of the top secret KND Code Module), young cadet Tommy is joined by two other cadets, Lee and Sonia. Suddenly, what promises to be the start of their training is interrupted when a panicked distress signal from the Moonbase inform the facility that Father is attacking! The Kids Next Door evacuate to provide backup, leaving the three cadets alone--and they soon find out that the distress call was a ruse. Father soon arrives with his Ice Cream men at the facility, his true target being the Code Module. Now the only thing standing between the fiery fiend and Global Command's most vital secrets are three young KND cadets. Can these rookies possibly defeat the greatest villain in Kids Next Door history?moreless

  • I think this is one of the funniest Numbuh 1 episodes there is.

    My favorite of the two episodes is Operation B.U.T.T. It seems even at a depressing situation, they sure don't have a hard time laughing at his butt. Even Numbuh 5 can't help but laugh at Numbuh 2's puns (which is the first time). The only thing I don't understand is why do they all think that Numbuh 1 has such a huge butt? I mean have they looked at Numbuh 2's rear end lately? To me, Numbuh 2 is a hell of a lot bigger than Numbuh 1! But i guess you can't make fun of the fat kid. The other episode is cute too. Before I really knew a lot about the KND, I thought that Lee was Numbuh 4's brother. They kindof have the same face. But Lee sounds a lot smarter than Numbuh 4. All in all,they were both very good episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • In Operation: B.U.T.T., When Numbuh 2 is saying he'd know if Numbuh 1 left the beach, he is standing in front of the snack cabinet. Then Numbuh 3 starts shouting how she won in the videogame, and nobody is in front of the snack cabinet. Then when they hear Numbuh 1's bedroom door close, Numbuh 2 is back in front of the snack cabinet.

    • In Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G. we can clearly see that Father is a shapeshifter.

    • Since Numbuh 2 is fatter than Numbuh 1, then speaking from logic, shouldn't 2's butt be bigger than 1's?

    • Wouldn't all those chains on Numbuh 1's swim trunks at the end of B.U.T.T. make him drown?

    • Towards the end of B.U.T.T., the Robo-Crab rips off Numbuh1's pants, but after the DCFDTL are defeated and he puts his pants back on, they're whole and un-ripped.

    • Father seems a little excited at the prospect of obtaining a book with Numbuh 362's autograph, even though he likely hates her. (Would the Green Goblin desire Spider-Man's autograph?)

      Numbuh 3: A kitten? Didja bring me a kitten?

      Numbuh 3: If he has to leave the room, its gotta be somthing big. Like a pony!

    • Numbuh 3: How could such a HUGE tushie fit on such a tiny piece of film?
      Numbuh 5: Guys! Now come on, Nigel's had a big day.

      Numbuh 1: Come on guys, I just want to put this whole thing behind me.

    • Numbuh 4: He's gone! J-A-W-N!!

    • Sonia: Hey, Fireface!
      Father: Huh?
      Sonia: Looking for this code module thingy? (Waves the "Code Module", then runs away as Father gives chase)
      Father: AAAHH!!! WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?! (The chase continues before Sonia drops the object and he laughs) Finally! I possess the code mod... Wait a second!? This is an autograph book! Oooh! Signed by Numbuh 362. Now, that's rare.

      Chamber to make citizens of Mobius into robots.

    • Numbuh 60: The MOOOOON!
      This is a refernence to Homestar Runner when Strong Bad always says "We're going to the MOOOOOON!"
