  • It was okay...

    Operation: I.-S.C.R.E.A.M (6.5)

    This episode was okay. I kind of got tired watching it every two days. At first I liked it but now......Anywayz...In this episode the KND were trying to stop the adults from having an ice cream party without kids. The DCFDTL were behind it.(I seriously hate them.Don't you?) They got the ice cream men to work with them and there passward was Frosty and okay..This was like okay. I give it a 7.5.

    Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N

    This episode revolves mostly around Numbuh 4 with the others in it too. Numbuh one went to happyland so numbuh 4 decides to become the "permanent temporary leader" Everyone gets tired when numbuh 4 is forcing them to make a clam cannon using getting the idea from numbuh 5's joke that she made. The DCFDTL are the baddies in this episode and use numbuh 4's badly designed clam cannon to shoot the knds out only shot themselves instead. Numbuh one arrives and sees the clam cannon and is happy and says that they should fix it. All of a sudden everyone is not tired anymore except numbuh 4 and no one has any idea why. Wow. Such a great episode. Not. I idn't like it that much. I give it a 5.5.moreless

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • In the Spanish Language Version, Numbuh One said "Hasta La Vista Baby" instead of "So Long, Suckers".

    • Running Gag: Numbuh 5 repeatedly uses the phrase "that was too easy" when she and Numbuh 1 get the password from the ice cream man, when Numbuh 2 successfully dodges the ice cream blasts and safely lands the M.O.S.Q.U.I.T.T.O.H. on the ice cream factory, when the KND find out the Delightful Children were helping the adults, and when the KND are riding on the ice cream wave.

    • If the air conditioner went all the way up to eleventy billion degrees, why weren't the people in the building hurt?

    • Why didn't Numbuh 5's hat fall off when the truck was upside-down?

    • How come Numbuh1's sunglasses didn't fall off when the truck was upside-down?

    • The "Yipper" franchise, is read as "Yip" on the comic books.

    • In Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N., when Numbuh 4 tells the DCFDTL they have a cannon, their mouths drop open for a second then drop back to the normal look.

    • In Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N., only Numbuh 1's mom talks but the credits say "dad" also.

    • How come Numbuh 4 didn't need magnet shoes like Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 5 when standing on the ice cream truck?

    • Numbuh 3: Party! Ice Cream Party!

    • Numbuh 5: (After getting the password for the ice cream factory) That was too easy!
      (After Numbuh 2 lands on the ice cream factory) That was still too easy!
      (After falling into the trap set by the DCFDTL) I told you it was too easy!
      (When riding the wave of ice cream) I like it when things are too easy!

    • Numbuh 5: What now, Numbuh 1?
      (slight pause)
      Numbuh 3: Party! Ice Cream Party!
      All: Party! Ice Cream Party! Party!...
      Numbuh 5:I like it when things are too easy!

    • Computer: Access Denied.
      Numbuh 1: Numbuh 3, what are you typing?! (Looks at the screen. It's filled with... ) "I love parties"?!!!
      Numbuh 3: You do too?

  • NOTES (7)


    • Truck Chase: Licence to Kill

      During the chase between the kids next door operatives and the ice cream trucks one scene clearly resembles the truck chase sequence from the famous James Bond movie Licence to Kill.

    • Ice Cream Truck: The Matrix
      When Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 5 are on the truck, they go through the tunnel and up the side of the wall, then it goes into slow motion as it goes around. This is an obvious reference to "The Matrix".

    • Ice Cream Beast: Ghostbusters
      This monster was inspired by Mr. Stay Puft, the giant marshmallow monster in the 1984 movie "Ghostbusters" (which many critics count as one of the most creative movie monsters of all time). Note that, like Stay Puft, the Ice Cream Beast is defeated when it is melted.
