Codename Kids Next Door. What can you say about it? When it comes to explaining things im completely retarded about it. So im going to let TV Tropes explain it for me
Codename: Kids Next Door is a show on Cartoon Network about a team of five ten-year-olds, members of a secret organization who fight adult tyranny. It's much better than it sounds.The idea grew out of side characters for Mr. Warburton's failed series Kenny and the Chimp. The show featured five kids who lived next door to Kenny with no parental supervision. The five were simply troublemakers who enjoyed terrorizing the neighborhood. When the show fell through, they were retooled into the stars of their own show.The five kids became Sector V , a Five Man Band in the worldwide organization the Kids Next Door. Numbuh One, The Hero, is a Properly Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist who is always seen wearing sunglasses. Numbuh Two, The Smart Guy, is an inventor known for cracking anIncredibly Lame Pun at inappropriate times. Numbuh Three, The Chick, is The Ditz of the team, constantly happy and serving as the team doctor. Numbuh Four, The Big Guy, is a Book Dumb kid who holds an invaluable amount of street smarts. Finally, Numbuh Five, The Lancer, is the only sane girl trying desperately to keep the team together.Together they fight several villains, such as the demonic and mysterious Father, his creepy children The Delightful Children From Down The Lane, Numbuh Five's traitorous sister Cree, and the Corrupt Corporate Executive Mr. Boss, all of whom hate children and want them enslaved.The show was known for its consistent continuity and its use of the Story Arc, as well as having several Parental Bonus moments within. Among these include an Affectionate Parody of the Animatrix short The Second Renaissance and aMusical Episode starring GWAR. This has attracted fans outside its intended audience. Another draw is the aversion of Spotlight Stealing Squad, Invincible Hero, and Failure Hero- a new episode can actually have suspense over who's going to win or lose, and it's hilarious and/or awesome either way.It ended after six seasons, one movie, and a crossover with The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy. The Grand Finale, Operation: INTERVIEWS, answered
all unsolved a few questions.

Watching this show as a kid i absolutely loved it. And i still love it to this day. I loved the diversity of the characters, I loved the mythology, I loved its consistency, and I loved its backstory. When the show is funny, its funny. when its dramatic, its dramatic (and it gets pretty dramatic.) and i loved how it took normal everyday situations of kids and warped it into a 15 minute plotline. (crazy old cat lady = lady who looks and acts like cat and has a telepathic control over cats. braking moms favorite vase = a secret game of baseball where baseballs are fragile porceline whatevers.)
However there are several problems with the show that never seemed to be explained. For starters, why is Numbah 1 bald all the time? in one episode its explained how he got balled in the first place(The Delightful Children from Down the Lane captured him and "Made Me Bald" as Numbah 1 puts it) but its never explained why hes ALWAYS bald. did they use acid or fire or which permanently removed all his hair follicles? And second, why are the teenagers enemies with the kids? i always viewed teenagers as authority haters (as stereotypical as that sounds) and the kids seemed to hate authority as well. so common sense would suggest they would team against the adults. but instead the teens team with adults against the kids which is unfair odds if you ask me. i think it would have made more sense if they were some sort of neutral faction of the three. (since teenagers are on the verge of becoming adults but still maintain there childlike sense of adventure)
Nevertheless, Codename Kids Next Door will always remain in my heart as the one of the greatest shows of all time. if you like the show, great but don't just put "i liked it to". explain why. if you didn't like it, don't just put "i didn't like it." explain why.
