  • Good, except...

    I liked this episode and I thought it was handled well for the most part, I liked Jimmy being a villain. But I really do not like FOURTH graders using the word "love" to each other. To me, that is just not true, as in real life no one that young would use the word love to something they LIKED. I know this is a cartoon, but I just cannot like that they actually had 4th graders tell each other they loved them. The rest was pretty good in this episode though, about a B+ or so is my grademoreless
  • It's snowing and everyone is having a great time except for Nigel Uno, who is feeling sick and must stay home. But it's not long until something terrible happens and it's up to Nigel Uno and the Kids Next Door to save the day.moreless

    Funny episode, it's like half and episode of star wars mixed with half an episode of KND.

    I found it was really funny how the librarian guys rolled like the robots in Star Wasr ep 1-3, and how the big robots represented the AT robots from Star Wars ep-5.

    Also it was really funny when Nigel Uno heard Lizzie's voice saying 'Use the Soup Nigel, use the Soup', when in Star Wars the phrase is 'Use the Force'.

    This was a really good episode not only because it was like a parody of Star Wars but also because it had a great storyline.moreless
  • Operation S.N.O.W.I.N.G.- Its a snow day! Except Jimmy, the fourth grade president wants all the kids back at school for a "special" assembly to crown his queen? Who is his queen? Will he be succesful in bringing the kids back to school? Fun parody of Stamoreless

    8.5
    Operation S.N.O.W.I.N.G.- Personally, the whole bringing kids back-to-school on a snow day was an idea that would've never entered my brain. The whole episode was A Star Wars parody which was well done, especially the whole light saber // ruler fight. *Commends for not using : I am your Father line like every other parody of Star Wars* The episode was overall awesome, except I thought it began really slow and the fight//ending scene was cut a teensy bit to short. Also, we could live without checking on Jimmy every other minute, it made it boring at parts. Overall it was a solid episode, so I shall give it an 8.5.moreless

    Let me start off plain and simple: this episode was one of my favorites. To some, it isn't. I could understand where they're getting at, but let me explain myself.



    President Jimmy is a returning character, and one heck of a character too. It seems that you don't know what's going on with him. Well, at first, at least. When you first meet him, he's innocent. Then again, at the end of Operation: PRESIDENT, our dear ol' Jimmy becomes all evil, but that soon becomes into this story, am I right? Well, anyway.



    I love how he just morphs into a KND-Version of Anakin Skywalker. I really did believe he belonged with Anna since the beginning, but it gave a good twist for Lizzie to be the one.



    It may just be me, but I love parodies. And this being a Star Wars parody just makes it even more humorous and intruiging. Because of the parody, it just adds the best to it.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Keep a close watch on the wall in Numbuh 4's room; he has a picture (that someone, most likely him) of Numbuh 3 with the sun above her.

    • This is the first time the President has done an evil deed.

      Reply: Actually, the first evil deed President Jimmy did was back in Operation: P.R.E.S.I.D.E.N.T., when he made school hours much later, and added triple homework assignments for everyone.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Numbuh 2 and Numbuh 4 smell Lizzies soup and gag)
      Numbuh 4: I thought you wanted to cure Numbuh 1, not kill him!
      Lizzie (scoffs): Shows what you know (She begins to walks off). At least my Nigie has a sense of taste.
      Numbuh 2 (mutters): He won't after he has a spoonful of that.

    • Numbuh Five: "STOP! how many times does a snow day come around? Once a year if we're lucky. we have worked hard all year in school, we deserve this day off. am I right? (the other kids mumble and agree) now I came out here to play in the snow today! and I'm gonna play, even if I have to play rough. Are ya with me!"

      Kids: YEAH!!

      Numbuh Five: "Okay then! Numbuh four snow ball defenses!, Numbuh three streamline attackifacation! Numbuh two Ready the Sled wings! Everybody! BATTLE STATIONS!!"

    • Jimmy: And maybe I will learn what it really means... to love.
      Numbuh 4: Ughhh! Get these guys to the Arctic Prison before I get totally sick! (Numbuh 44 leaves with captives.)
      Numbuh 4 (Mocking imitation voice) 'Maybe I'll learn to love', oooooh 'I love you'... PLEH! (Numbuh 3 looks sad) You will never catch me acting like that... (Numbuh 4 faces Numbuh 3 with his eyes closed. She starts getting mad)
      ...not with anyone. (Opens his eyes. Numbuh 3 is shaking with anger)
      Numbuh 3: Grrrrrrr (pushes Numbuh 4 down, then stomps off) ...ahhhh. (Numbuh 2 chuckles)
      Numbuh 5: Ooh, your in trouble.
      Numbuh 4: What? What did I say?

    • Jimmy: You will call me, Master President! (Makes a fist, soldier pretends like he is being choked)
      Jimmy: What are you doing?
      Soldier: I had tacos last night.

    • Lizzie: Use the soup, Nigel.

    • Jimmy: ... With the boyfriend helmet.
      Lizzie: GASP! You want a boyfriend?
      Jimmy: NO!

    • Jimmy: So tell me Lizzie... Have you ever dreamed of being a queen when you grow up?
      Lizzie: Sure! Either that or a real estate appraiser...

  • NOTES (10)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Bus Walkers: Appearance

      Although the Bus Walker employed by President Jimmy are made to resemble the AT-ATs used during the Hoth Battle of Star Wars Episode V--The Empire Strikes Back, they have the same tentacles used by the walking machines of War of the Worlds. It would make a lot of sense, considering that the ATs were inspired by the walking machines of the aforementioned movie.

    • 4th Grade President's Name: James Nixon McGarfield
      "Master President's" name seems to be a combination of the names of several US Presidents. There have been six presidents with the first name "James": Madison, Monroe, Polk, Buchanan, Garfield, and Carter (the last is better known as Jimmy Carter). Nixon is an obvious reference to Richard M. Nixon, the only president to have resigned. Garfield is another obvious reference to the aforementioned James Garfield. "Mc" may be a reference to William McKinley.

    • The entire episode is a reference to Star Wars Episode Five The Empire Strikes Back. The refernces are:

      * Lizzie: "Use the soup" is a refernce to Obi-wan Kenobi telling Luke to use the Force.
      * Bus Walkers: AT-AT (Imperial Walkers)
      * Numbah 2 and the sled riders: Snowspeeders
      * Numbah 1's fighter: X-wing (But the visual resembles more like a Z-95 Headhunter)
      * The drivers in the bus walkers: Strom troopers and snow troopers
      * Snowball guns: Laser turrets
      * The girls wrapping the busses up: harpoons and tow cables used to wrap up the ATs
      * Jimmy's tarnsport and dark clothing: the Imperial Super Star Destroyer and symbolism of how Anakin turned into Darth Vader for Padme
      * The bomb Nigel used to knock out the bus: The explosive that Luke used to destroy one of the Ats
      * Numbuh One and Jimmy's fight: Lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader in Cloud City

      Also, the battle in the snow, In which the KND lead the resistance, while The President's minions try to capture them, is very much like the opening of Episode V, when the empire stormed the temporary Rebel HQ on the ice planet Hoth. The only part thats missing is some sort of central command for the KND.
