  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Cree: You... You did that for me? After all I've done to you and the Kids Next Door?
      Numbuh 5: Yeah, you may be my archenemy, but you're still my sister.

    • Numbuh 1: We've hidden Numbuh 5 somewhere in our treehouse: a place where you'll never find her. (Cree gets mad and tosses Numbuh 1)
      Cree: You better hand her over now before I turn this stupid treehouse upside-down!
      Numbuh 1: Go ahead and try it.
      (cuts to the scene where the treehouse is now upside-down)
      Numbuh 1: Wow. I didn't think you could do it.

  • Notes

    • V.I.R.U.S. stands for Very Icky Research Under Sea.
      O.U.T.B.R.E.A.K. stands for Overflowed Undersea Treehouse Bears Really Extra Awful Kontamination.

    • Operation: V.I.R.U.S. leads up to Operation: O.U.T.B.R.E.A.K., the first time this happens for a pair of shorts airing in the same half-hour. And both begin at the same location: the KND underwater treehouse.

    • Abby (Numbuh 5) and Cree's mother is shown in the episode "Operation V.I.R.U.S.", and is either French from France, or French Creole from New Orleans or such.

    • Operation V.I.R.U.S. is a Cree episode.
      Operation O.U.T.B.R.E.A.K. is a team episode.
