  • this episode is cool but there is one thing i dident like.....

    8.9
    ok this episode is very good first of all but the thing i dident like was that it was SHORT if it was an hour i would have loved it but it was only 30 minutes plus commericals. That dosent meen that i hate this episode this episode was funny Number 1 was very funny in this episode and i liked the ending part when grim and number 1 fought all those people it was exciting i liked this because this is so far the best episode in this season (my opinion) i would have liked it if it was an hour cause it would have been more exciting and probely more action in this episode still i liked it and i give it a 8.9/10 i hope the creators of this series keep up the good workmoreless
  • Horrible, simply horrible, kids next door wasn't a great show in the first place, and it just brought the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy down. The characters were flat, the jokes, lame, simply horrid cross over.moreless

    I have seen better cross overs seeing fat sweaty hairy guys in skimpy sailor moon costumes. Uhhh, the stuff of nightmares. But this, all this did is put down Billy and Mandy, and Kids Next Door sunk even farther with a half put togeather plot involving the delightful kids from down the lane. The Grim Advetures of Billy And Mandy crossed over with the wonderful classic Ed, Edd, and Eddy looked a more worthy cross over. The writting suggested more on The Kids Next Door Part and seemed to barely involve Billy, Mandy, Grim, and the rest of the cast. Infact, they really didn't need them to make this lame epsiode, the fusion of the delightfulization chamber with super natural powers could have came from other sources, might I suggest next time, trying to team up with another show I don't care much for, good idea, not well exicuted, Ben 10's Omnytrix. It would pritty much form the same basic results, might have ended up written better to. In short, save yourself the trouble, don't btoehr with the lame jokes, lame story writting, lame cross over and go full on Billy and Mandy.moreless
  • Probably the last episode ever, and definitely the best episode ever! Finally! Mandy doesn't win and gets her comeuppance! (Sort of!) :idea:

    Who would've thought the best episode of both "Codename Kids Next Door" and "Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" would be the latter's last episode and it would all start with something as simple as Billy wearing his dads lucky pants and getting Grim's scythe stuck in them! Who will he call? Ed, Edd, n' Eddy! Oops! They don't help anybody unless there's cash involved! So Billy tries his second choice: the Kids Next Door, who help kids for free. The plan is simple: they'll take Billy to an underwater sea lab and remove the scythe there, Nigel Uno will stay behind and take Billy's place to make sure nobody realizes Billy or the pants are missing. Easy right? Unfortunately for all characters in both shows, nothing can Ever be easy! Mandy gets involved and Demands Nigel tell her what's going on! Of course, he didn't plan on doing so at first but Mandy can be Very persuasive! Meanwhile, the K.N.D. have to stop the Delightful Children from Down the Lane from using their new and improved delightfulization chamber to make kids just like them: creepy! Unfortunately, Billy acts stupid again and suddenly he, the scythe, and the Delightful's suddenly go into the chamber and a push of a button, a little of Grim's scythe magic, and an incredible transformation happens! The Delightful's and Billy have become the Delightful Reaper and are determined to coerce every kid into their being! To complicate matters, Mandy learns everything she needs to learn from Nigel and discovers the long awaited key she's been looking for in global domination! She leaves and when she gets to the K.N.D. headquarters, she successfully manages to trick the other kids into thinking a virus has made Numbah's 5 and 362 untrusty as they get locked up even though Abby can plainly see through Mandy's ruse! Meanwhile, Grim discovers Nigel and has finally had it with people stealing his scythe! The two unlikely allies team up in order to take down the Delightfuls and get Grim's scythe back! But will they be able to do it? Probably! :idea:moreless
  • In this crossover special, Billy is wearing his dad's lucky pants when he's away. As he accidentaly gets Grim's scythe stuck in his pants,he's in trouble. Who's gonna help him:Kids Next Door that's who.moreless

    In the introduction of the Grim/KND crossover, Billy's Dad leaves Billy at home for underwear shopping and telling Billy 1 important thing: Not to Eat the last piece of chicken. Just kidding, He told him not to touch his lucky pants. So billy does the opposite of what he says, but then grim's scythe gets stuck in the seat of his pants. So he realises 2 things: His dad should stop leaving him home... and he's in trouble. So who's gonna help him out: Ed, Edd n Eddy? Nah, they're not helping people this season; billy's also broke. So Eddy gives him an idea, leaving Billy with 2 options: The Kids Next Door or The Powerpuff Girls? First one at billy's house gets to help him(I put my money on the Kids Next Door).The KND appear.(Now where's my money?) After that, "Everything gets off the hook." This is a great Crossover of the two shows, but just 3 problems. 1.The plot is good, but it's only for 30 minutes. Why not for 1 hour or more. 2.Most people in the crossover is stupid. Why everyone keep thinking Number 1 is Billy. It should have worked on mandy and save them the trouble. And finally the most important 3. Ed, Edd n Eddy isn't main characters in the show. They were only seen at the beginning and the end, so why couldn't they be in the middle. The only 2 good things that happen is: 1. They appear in this crossover and 2. They were essential in the story. Eddy told billy to call the Kids Next Door. If it weren't for them, Billy would be stuck with the Powerpuff girls(maybe). Other than Ed, Edd n Eddy not being main characters, the crossover is great. What do you think?moreless
  • Billy breaks his dad's pants... who's he gonna call? KND!

    First things first, I totally love crossovers (I've seen Freddy vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator and the first Jimmy Timmy Power Hour. I also have enjoyed both Super SMASH Bros games and the first Kingdom Hearts) so when I heard about The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door, I got interested!

    I at first had trouble getting the episode (living in Sweden, the episodes usually air months after it's shown in the US... and we always have to stick with horrible dubs!) but then I found a link to it and watched it!

    Both are really cool shows, so I was certain I'd like it, and I did! The jokes are clever and the script's awesome!moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof:

      In Codename Kids Next Door, in Operation A.R.C.H.I.E.V.E, we learn that Sector V lives in Cleveland, Ohio. In The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy in Jeffy's Web, we learn that Endsville lives somewhere in New York, judging by the Statue of Liberty as seen in that episode. If they live in different states apart, then how come some characters from Cleveland showed up in New York? We see Tommy Gilligan, Numbuh 2's brother, in Endsville, and there was no explanation as to how he got there, whatsoever.

    • In Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure, Numbuh 3 promised to get back in Grim, but when Grim is captured, they don't even remember each other or the events of the TV movie. Reponse: To be fair, Numbuh 3 may have forgotten about it (she is somewhat ignorant) and Grim just didn't care.

    • The first five minutes of the movie, Ben 10: Race Against Time, were featured during the final commercial break.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Billy: DAD'S PANTS! What do I do?! Dad would sell my organs if he finds out I ripped his lucky pants! (squinting his eyes) There's only one group of kids who can help me now...
      (Scene to where we see the Eds from Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy. Billy calls the Eds and Eddy answers it)
      Ed: Hello!
      Eddy: Ed, Edd, and Eddy's Pesky Problem Fixers! Got a problem that's pesky? We'll fix her for just one lousy quarter!
      (Eddy then looks annoyed as Billy talks on the other line)
      Eddy: WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU'RE BROKE!? (Ed and Edd crashed to the ground) Hey! If you're looking for charity, call Kids Next Door! They're cheap!
      (Eddy hangs up)

    • Computer Voice: Mandy New Dictator Manned Robot: Monkeys And Nice Doggies Relax On Bodies of Turtles.
      Mandy: (furiously) What kind of acronym is that?
      Numbuh 3: Well, if you weren't in such a rush, maybe I would have come up with a better one!

    • Fred Fredburger: Um, can I come out of the TV? I gotta poo-poo.

    • Mandy: I want her found a locked up yesterday.
      Numbuh 4: Aw, I had plans that day.

    • Billy: Hey, You're not the Powerpuff Girls!

    • Numbuh 4: Ah crud, what is Billy doing?
      Numbuh 5: Challenging you for fool of the month!

    • Numbuh 2: Uh, Numbuh 5, do you think it was a good idea to leave Billy alone in the ship?
      Numbuh 5: Do you want to go back and stay with him?
      Numbuh 2: Good point.
