  • Operation: L.U.N.C.H. Lizzie prepares a special lunch for Nigel, but Robin Food swipes it first. Operation: M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S. The Kids locate the last box of Rainbow Munchies in the Super Villain's Supermarket, and go on a missmoreless

    Operation: L.U.N.C.H.

    Nigel tries to hide from Lizzie to take care of important work during lunch, but she's insistent he spend this lunch with her.

    As they settle down in the cafeteria, Robin Food and his Hungry Men arrive to steal everyone's lunch, so they can feed the retired persons at Sure Would Forest Retirment Home.

    Lizzie goes on a solo mission to get back her lunch, but is heartbroken when she hears from Robin Food that the old people are starving while she and her friends live with sumptuous amounts of food at their school and give nothing to the elderly.

    However, when Grandma Lydia Gilligan, Sheldon and Maurice join to become Seniorcitizon, Lizzie learns that Robin Food is actually just a lazy cafeteria worker who keeps stealing fatty kid's food so he doesn't have to work at preparing old-fashioned old-people food.

    In the end, Seniorcitizon royally beats down Robin Hood and his Hungry Men, and Lizzie goes back to school with her lunch.

    Nigel is disappointed however to learn that the "lunch" is a single stick of celery - Lizzie says he's let himself go.

    Operation: M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S.

    The Kids Next Door are out of their breakfast - Rainbow Munchies cereal.

    They send a swarm of probes to find another box anywhere in the city, and find just one in the Supermarket for Supervillains!

    But no mere villains (even if it's nearly all of their enemies) are going to stand between Sector V and their breakfast.

    As the Kids close in on Check out with the cereal, after getting having to get it back from just about every villain in the store, Nightbrace takes it, with the intention of destroying it (due to his sugars and the damage they do to teeth and gums).

    Putting aside their differences (until the end of breakfast), Sector V and the Villains get the cereal back from Nightbrace and all enjoy breakfast together.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • At the end of L.U.N.C.H., Lizzie says that Numbuh 1 needs to lose weight, that seems a little unfair from her because she's the one who really needs to lose weight!

    • If Father's fire was powerful enough to destroy the KND's ship, shouldn't it have destroyed their armor?

    • Why did Father make a truce with Numbuh 1 and the others when he was more than capable of defeating Knightbrace on his own?

    • At the end everyone but Knightbrace was eating cereal, but they're couldn't have been enough for everyone.

    • Everyone knows that Numbuh Four thinks Rainbow Monkeys are stupid - yet, he loves their brand of cereal?

      Reply: It probably wouldn't matter about what the brand is, he just likes the taste.

    • Practically every villain the KND has faced (except Knightbrace) seems to love Rainbow Crunchies, even though it seems to be a children's cereal - that seems kind of odd.

  • NOTES (17)

    • The fact that Numbuh 3 seems to know what Numbuh 4's favorite food is shows that she does like him enough to remember silly little things.

    • First appearance of Robin Food and his Hungry Men.

    • This is Benjamin Diskin's favorite episode.

    • Apparently villains and kids love Rainbow Munchies.

    • L.U.N.C.H. s a Lizzie episode, while M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S. is a team episode

    • Villains: Robin Food, Toilenator, Mr. Boss, Ice-Cream Men, Mega Mom, Destructo Dad, Count Spankulot, Mr. Fizz, Knightbrace, Crazy Old Cat Lady, Stickybeard, and Father

    • First appearance of the Super-Villains Supermarket & Deli. Among the villains after the Rainbow Munchies cereal there are Father, Mr. Boss, Count Spankulot, two Ice Cream Men, Stickybeard and the Candy Pirates, The Crazy Old Cat Lady, Mega Mom and Destructo Dad, Mr. Fizz, Toiletnator, and Knightbrace. Also, you can see cameos of Professor XXXL (he's now half-snail), Grandma Stuffum, Big Brother, Simon, Cuppa Joe, and an unnamed villain in a chameleon suit before the action starts.

    • Numbuhs 3 and 5 do not appear in "Operation L.U.N.C.H."

    • The Senior Citizens Squad returns with their giant robot in "Operation: L.U.N.C.H.".

    • The Sweet Revenge is parked in the surpermarket parking lot in at least one scene of the outside.

    • KND Technology: L.O.C.K.A.H.S.O.C.K.A.H.: Locker Operated Cybernetic Klanky Armor Has Stinky Old Clothes Kannon Arms - Hooray; S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.D.A.R.T.: Super Hoagie Operated Piston Powered Interceptor Naturally Goes Down Asles Really Turbonically.

    • L.U.N.C.H. stands for Lizzie Underappreciates Nigel's Chowtime Hardworkingness.

      M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S. stands for Morning Uncovers Needed Crunchiness Hiding In Enemy Store.

    • It seems that Count Spankulot has the traditional vampiric weakness to garlic, even though he is immune to sunlight.

    • "L.U.N.C.H." is the first episode where Lizzie has a starring role.

    • Look Hard: If you look closely at the scene where everyone closes in on Knightbrace, you can see that Numbuh 3 is holding one of the Cat Lady's cats.

    • Credits: Everyone is still eating cereal. Stickybeard and Numbuh 5 are sitting together; Mr. Boss is fending off the Cat Lady's cats. After a few seconds, Toilenator burps loudly. Everyone looks at him in disgust, and he says, "I'm sorry..."

    • While the cannons on the Sweet Revenge fire gum wads, the ones on Stickybeard's mini-ship fire sacks of sugar.


    • Star Wars: The scene where the K.N.D send out tennis probes to find the cereal was similar to when the Empire in "The Empire Strikes Back" dispatched probes to find the Rebels. In fact, the probe is similar to the one in the movie. The scene were the probe locks onto the target just before a shopping cart crushes it is similar to when the probe in "The Empire Strikes Back" locates the Rebel's base and is then blasted by Han Solo. In addition, the scene where Numbuh 3 belives the cereal is in the villian's store and Numbuh 4 finds it hard to believe is similar to when Darth Vader believes the rebel base is on Hoth dispite the doubt of one of his generals.

    • Robin Food was a parody of both Robin Hood and Robin from Teen TItans. Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor the way Robin Food stole from the young and gave to the old. And Robin Food used a boastick which is one of Robin's most used weapons.

    • The name of the retirement home Sure Wood Forest, is a play off of Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood had all his adventures.
