  • Operation: CABLE-TV may be the groundbreaking episode that led us where we are today. It was just the beginning. CAUTION: Spoilers.

    It's amazing what if you think about it. Starting from this very episode, Operation: CABLE-TV, begins the epic journey that our Sector V still venture on today. You may not realize it, but it is the beginning of it all.

    Start with Mr. Boss. Age changing. And series changing. With just his cigar, it led the Delightfuls to retrieve it, and, being the goody-goodies they are, return it to their Father. That eventually leads to Operation: GROW-UP--the beginning of Father. At least, to us that is. And because of Numbuh 1 now, Father grows his hate for the young boy. So then he recruits Cree, Abby's older sister, and puts a twist in our story. And Cree is there to just help Father destroy the KND. Amazingly enough, they have a well executed plan and almost seemingly flawless one too. This takes us all the way to Operation: SPACE, which then jumps to END, where Cree's plan is foiled by figuring out that someone else beat her to the draw. And that someone else just so happens to be an ex-operative, Chad. Cree now recruits him and he joins Father. Later on, Father tries to take the one thing that could control a child's fun life--the Code Module. Fortunately, for the kids, the KND take it back, only to find out that he planted a trap along with it. Then once more, the KND stop him. (Well, by now it's not really the KND, it was more of "The Tommy" who did.) By now, Father and his crew take a break.

    But as you guys could probably tell by now, this whole thing. This whole plot right there, all started with this episode. So you could say that it is technically the "beginning". And beginnings are where it is interesting.

  • NOTES (9)


    • Numbuh 2: One of these days...

      This is a reference to Jackie Gleason's character Ralph Kramden on "The Honeymooners". Specifically, it refers to one of his most famous lines, "One of these days... one of these days... POW! Right in the kisser!"

    • Counselor: And, I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling skunks!
      In Scooby Doo, when the bad guy is unmasked, The gang would explain about the crime he or she commited and why, the crimminal would say "And, I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!"

    • Announcer: And next up, Rainbow Monkeys! Followed by, Rainbow Monkey Babies! Followed by Rainbow Monkey Teens!
      This may be a reference to the Muppets, which had Just the regular Muppets, then Muppet Babies (which was animated). A little logic, apparently the movie which the Muppet Babies (as puppets) was first featured had the Muppets fresh out of college, so technically they were teens.
