Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T.: Numbuh 2 has always been one of the best pilots in the organization - but one day while taking his 2X4 aircraft for a spin, he's shot down by a mysterious child pilot with a 2X4 plane of his own. 2 seeks revenge, but the pilot is untouchable, and manages to shoot him down out of every aircraft in the team's arsenal! Considering giving up, piloting, Hoagie finally finds a way to defeat the pilot - only to discover that his supplier has been fooling them both into fighting each other in a plot to destroy every chili dog in town! Can the dueling dogfaces prevent this mystery meat massacre?!

Operation T.R.I.P.:
Father learns that Numbuh 3 is traveling to her homeland to meet up with the secret Japanese branch of the Kids Next Door; so he sends his best spies, the Interesting Twins From Beneath the Mountain, to trail Kuki and find the location of the Japanese agents' hideaway so an attack can be made. But when the two young spies trail 3, a combination of their incompetence and her natural good luck impair them at every turn! What will be the outcome of this stealthy struggle in the Land of the Rising Sun?!


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Two very good Kids adventures

    A review of two episodes, "Operation D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T. and Operation T.R.I.P. first it's Operation D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T. starring Number Two. In this fifteen minute segment, Number Two battles another kid with bigger anf better planes. Remindes me of a TV series "Dasterdly and Muttely in their Flying Machines." Only with better planes. The second, "Operation T.R.I.P." featuring Number three in her best adventure. She goes to japan to meet up with japanese counterpart, only to be followed by enemy agents. Everything bad happens to the emeny agents. Those two segments feature the agents in seperate adventures, as in the case of number 2 and number 3. Both segments are very good.moreless
  • Not too good.

    Operation: D.o.g.f.i.g.h.t

    It was a little boring. I didn't like it that much. It was mostly numbuh 2 using difernet planes to beat THE KID. At the end if you watch numbuh 3 and 4 you can see these two look at each other when numbuh 2 tells 1.3,4 and 5 about the kid.

    Operation: T.R.I.P

    It was funny a first but now it is downright annoying. It's only about the interesting kids from beneath the mountain trying to follow numbuh 3 to find the location secret of the japanese kids next door.

    It was funny though. The twins were kinda weird. But it was good.moreless
  • These are the best episodes of Codename: Kids Next Door!!!

    I like this two episodes in Operation: D.O.G.-F.I.G.H.T., I like the part when Numbuh 2 and the other guy were fighting and at near the end when they work together to stop the enemie or villain. A great episode and mostly the other episode I like the best. In Operation: T.R.I.P.,I like the part when the two kids were following Numbuh 3 to Japan. When Numbuh 3 was on the airport and airplane, the peoples and animals she met were really Kids Next Door operatives but in Japan or Japanese. They were making sure Cookie will go safe on Japan. Very funny episode! These two episodes are the best episodes of Codename: Kids Next Door!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • It's not possible for a bullet train, the fastest train in the world, to stop so easily. And since it did, all the passengers riding in it should have been jerked forward violently and been severely injured, not just the twins.

    • The Japanese airport has citizens wearing sombreros. Sombreros are worn in Mexico and U.S. states with facilities representing it, something Japan clearly doesn't have.

    • In Japan, not taking your shoes off before entering a house reveals a huge lack of manners. Not much cultural research there...

    • "Airplane" is misspelled in the credits (airplaIN).

    • How come the interesting twins dressed up in all those disguises. I mean it is not like Numbuh 3 knew who they were.

    • In reality, the Bullet train that Kuki rides on is Blue or green, depending on the side of japan it is on. It also doesnt have a cowcatcher on the front (like steam trains), and is drawn to represent the Kodoma, the original JNR bullet train that has long since been retired.

    • Another goof regarding Chinese and Japanese in "Operation T.R.I.P." is the fact that Brother summons the twins' airship with a remote watch that bears the Chinese Yin Yang symbol.

    • Kuki's excuse for making the train stop (which she may or may not have done on purpose, since we know that the driver was a fellow operative) is to shout that a panda is on the tracks - pandas are natives of China, not Japan (of course, we could blame this on Kuki's being an airhead...)

    • Father told the Twins that they are the best villains he has - frankly, if that was true, Father is in trouble.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Numbuh 2: Looks like I found a new hobby Mr. Washer, kicking your butt!

    • Numbuh 2: You're good.
      Kid: Not good. The BEST!

    • Twin Girl: You idiot! You were supposed to be visiting the Japanese Kids Next Door! Not your stupid grandmother!
      Numbuh 3: That's not my granny!
      Twin Girl: Are you completly stupid! That looks like a granny to me! I am a world class master of disguise, so I should know what and who...ooohhhhhh!
      (Disguise comes off, Shows Numbuhs 1, 2, 4, & 5)
      Numbuh 1: As you were saying?

    • Numbuh 3: Can I drive?
      Conductor: No
      Numbuh 3: Please?
      Conductor: No
      Numbuh 3: Can I drive now?
      Conductor: No
      Numbuh 3: How about now?
      Conductor: No
      Numbuh 3: Can I drive now?
      Conductor: I said no
      Numbuh 3: Look out a panda!
      Conductor: (Hits the breaks, causing the twins to crash through the front of the train) AAHHHHH!
      Numbuh 3: Oopsie! That was just a shadow. Can I drive now?
      Conductor: Okay

    • Twin Girl: I am losing my-
      Twin Boy: .. Patience is a virtue, sister.

    • Twin Girl: Since when does a Japanese airport...
      Twin Boy: ... have a free sombraro day?

    • Twin Boy: All she wanted to do was entrap you, and facillitate your DOOOOM!!! But do you care, NO!

    • Numbuh 2: Hate to sound corny, but.. you're gonna get creamed!

  • NOTES (15)

    • Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T. is a Numbuh 2 episode.
      Operation: T.R.I.P. is a Numbuh 3 episode.

    • Running gags:
      1) In Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T., Numbuh 2 getting blown out of the sky repetitive times and somebody spilling hot dogs onto the Hobby Shop owner's countertops and his cleaning the mess.

      2) In Operation T.R.I.P, the Interesting Twins from Beneath the Mountains trying to catch Kuki, only to end up caught in some harmful dilemma.

    • The Kid wears sunglasses similar to Numbuh1's.

    • D.O.G.-F.I.G.H.T. is the 10th Numbuh2 episode of the series

    • Numbuh 3 is Japanese, and so is her name. I (contributor) found out "Kuki" (Numbuh 3's first name) means "Stem" in Japanese. (like the stem on a flower).

    • Villains: Mr. Washer; Interesting Twins From Beneath The Mountain.

    • Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T. is on the Codename Kids Next Door GBA Video.

    • Kuki visits a traditional japanese village, possibly Nikko, known for the "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" statue of monkeys on a temple

    • The various scene changes that occur during "Operation: T.R.I.P.", instead of using the KND logo, uses the logo of the Interesting Twins from Beneath the Mountain, a white mountain which is cracked near its peak (possibly representing snow at the top) with the red rising sun inside the middle (which is the same as the flag of Japan), and bearing the silhouette of the twins (Sister on left side, Brother on right) in the foreground.

    • The Interesting Twins From Beneath the Mountain have names similar to those of the Delightful Children. They also tend to finish each others sentences, unlike the Delightful Children, who talk at the same time.

    • First appearance of the Interesting Twins From Beneath The Mountain.

    • Aircraft that Numbuh 2 use in this episode include the School Bus vehicle, the M.O.S.Q.U.I.T.T.O.H., the S.K.Y.C.L.A.W., the M.E.R.R.Y.G.O.R.O.C.K.E.T., the P.I.P.E.P.O.D., the boat-vehicle from C.H.A.D., the raft-vehicle from F.A.S.T.-F.O.O.D. and the flying limosine from D.A.T.E.

    • D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T. stands for Dueling Over Gooey Frankfurters Inevitably Gives Hogie Trouble.

      T.R.I.P. stands for Twins Reconaissance Increases Peril

    • Numbuh 1 only has one line of dialogue in Operation T.R.I.P. Numbuhs 4 and 5 have no speaking dialogue in either short. As a result, Dee Bradley Baker and Cree Summer's names don't appear in the end credits.

    • At the end you finally see the Japanese KND, dressed up as all the people you've seen throughout the episode (bulldog, train driver, old lady ect.)


    • Numbuh 2's Plane: Appearance
      One plane that Numbuh 2 uses looks a lot like Snoopy's doghouse from "Peanuts." As any comics fan knows, Snoopy engaged in several dogfights with the Red Baron.

    • Interesting Twins: Facial Features
      As mention in the trivia, the faces of the Interesting Twins From Beneath the Mountain bear a resemblance to the two halves the Yin Yang. The Yin Yang is the Taoist symbol of the interplay forces in the universe. Yin supposedly represents the receptive, passive, cold female force and is also the symbol of the moon. Yang is supposedly masculine, representing heat, force, movement, and the sun. The symbol also represents the balance between light and dark, good and evil, creation and destruction, etc.
