  • Best episode ever - Operation t.e.e.t.h.

    I absolutely love Knightbrace. my favorite quotation from him has to be: "What in the name of fluoride is going on here!?!" i even speak with a lisp despite not having braces or a retainer. (though i really want one.) this episode introduced us to Knightbrace and his insanely huge red toothbrush and mechanical and hysterical laughter. (which i think is so cute, but not as cute as his singing voice from operation v.i.d.e.o.g.a.m.e.)moreless
  • Operation: N.O.-P.O.W.U.H. After the Hamsters go on vacation, the KND have no power to fight off the new villain, Grandma Stuffum. Operation: T.E.E.T.H. A mysterious new menace is forcefully cleaning teeth, and the KND need tomoreless

    Operation: N.O.-P.O.W.U.H.

    After the Kids repel a mass attack of adults with their high powered 2x4 technology, and Numbuh 2 doesn't go further than using a giant rubber band, Numbuh 1 shows his friend (and us viewers) the central power-supply for the Kids Next Door Treehouse - a huge network of running hamsters on wheels that provide the KND with power.

    But when Numbuh 3 lets all the hamsters go on vacation, the KND are left in the dark.

    Meanwhile, the Delightful Children From Down The Lane recruit the maniacal Grandma Stuffum to fatten up the "skinny" Kids Next Door.

    Without power for their 2x4 weapons, the Kids must fight the new villain's feast head-to-head, and the enemy forces itself upon the kids, and into their stomachs.

    Only Numbuh 2 seems immune to Grandma Stuffum's disgusting food, but even he can't beat back so many courses.

    At the last minute, the hamsters return, devour Grandma Stuffum's feast, and the evil ogre is catapulted out of the Treehouse and back to the "skinny" Delightful Children, who she then feeds the rest of her arsenal to.

    Operation: T.E.E.T.H.

    Numbuh 3 was just a happy-go-lucky, candy-loving girl whose teeth were as rotted out as all the other Kids Next Door, but one afternoon when she was sent to get candy for her fellow operatives, she was attacked by some phantom adult that turned her teeth pearly white!

    After going into the neighborhood where she got cleaned, the kids are accosted by Dr. Teef, a charming dentist who offers them free check ups. Naturally they turn him down and head to pick up their candy. He grits his teeth, but lets it go.

    Though it's after closing time, the nice owner of the candy store gladly opens the door to his shop. Then on the way home, Numbuh 4 gets nabbed and fitted with braces, while Numbuhs 2 and 5 get roped together with Dental floss.

    Returning to the scene of the crime, the Kids run into the Enamel Avenger, Nightbrace! Though convinced he's Dr. Teef, it turns out to be the Candy Store owner, a Dental school drop out who wanted to correct the damage he'd done through selling cavity causing candy to children.

    Dr. Teef lends the kids a hand and Nightbrace is subdued, but the kids still blow him off on the free check up.moreless
