  • Trivia

    • Operation: O.F.F.I.C.E. is the first short that introduces the Rainbow Monkeys theme song:

      Rainbow Monkeys, Rainbow Monkeys
      All so very round and super chunky
      Bringing love wherever they go
      Every one is made of a big rainbow
      Oh, red and orange, and pink and blue
      Rainbow Monkeys, Rainbow Monkeys, we love you!

    • If all that Numbuh 30C wanted was to save Prof. XXXL's project, why didn't he simply tell sector V that they were looking at the wrong lab?

    • In O.F.F.I.C.E. when Numbuh 3 sees that Numbuh 4 is okay after the rocket crashes she hugs him.In the first scene of the hug if you look at her feet you'll see that her socks are white.

    • In O.F.F.I.C.E., there is an overhead shot of Numbuh 4's dad's office with the drawer of the filing cabinet opened. The following shot when they enter the office, the cabinet drawer is closed.

    • Plot Flub: 30ºC/86ºF is all right as long as you think he's helping heat the earth to stop snow day's, but what does heat have to do with making the perfect snow cone? Does making it perfect involve heating it?
