Codename: Kids Next Door Mission Weekend (Partially Found Marathon Bumpers; 2003)


(Redirected from Codename: Kids Next Door Mission Weekend (Lost Marathon Footage; 2003))

Kids Next Door Mission Weekend was a 51-hour marathon that ran from 7 pm on August 8, 2003, to 10 pm August 10, 2003. Although the main focus was Kids Next Door, Cartoon Network also aired Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Ed, Edd, n Eddy.

The main theme of the marathon was that the KND needed to build a satellite, and had to look in the other shows for clues. Throughout the marathon's several commercial breaks, Cartoon Network aired special bumpers, featuring spliced together footage of Kids Next Door characters interacting with characters from the other shows. Numbuh 1 stayed at the Treehouse, while Numbuhs 2 through 5 traveled "into" the other shows.

This marathon remained obscure for over 14 years, as no footage of it was uploaded to YouTube. There is an article on the subject on Cartoon Network's wiki[1], although it goes so unmentioned that it there is not even a mention on the official KND wiki. A surviving ToonZone forum has a thread from August 8, 2003 (during the weekend it aired).[2]

On February 12th, 2017, Cartoon Network & Toonami promo archivist Captain B. Zarre uploaded some of the lost bumpers from the marathon. Approximately 8 bumpers were in the upload, but the rest are still missing.

I remember this marathon. From what I can recall, the "portal through shows" was mostly just the characters having brief interactions with the others. It wasn't particularly animated well; it mostly look liked a decent Photoshop.

These bumpers could have been the inspiration for the CN City 2004-2006 bumpers then?

I very vaguely remember watching this. I was 4 years old at the time. The only thing I can remember clearly was a part of a bumper where it showed Numbah 1 and the schedule listing. It would be cool if someone could find ant footage from this marathon.

I have a few bumpers from this but not all of them - I can upload them to YouTube but they won't be in the best quality, I recorded them straight off my TV.

Where are the bumpers? Don't see them on your channel.

I don't have them up yet. I can upload them very soon, though.
