Codename: Kids Next Door was an animated television series which premiered on Cartoon Network in 2002 and ended in 2006 receiving 6 seasons, two specials, and a made for TV movie. The series focused on the adventures of Sector V, a branch of a worldwide organization of children dedicated to fighting adult tyranny. Throughout the course of the series, several episodes were planned for the series that were either heavily rewritten into different episodes or scrapped in their entirety.


Operation: T.R.E.E.S.

A parody of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax, right down to the art style and rhyming dialogue. It was so similar to the classic Dr. Seuss style that the creator, Tom Warburton, had to get permission from Theodore Geisel's estate. They declined, and the episode was scrapped. A script was posted on the now defunct Kids Next Door production blog, but it has since disappeared.[1]

Operation: S.P.A.N.K.S.G.I.V.I.N.G.

An episode that was originally planned to be a 22-minute Thanksgiving special that was likely canned due to lack of international appeal. The plot involved Numbuh 3's younger sister, Mushi, bringing to life Thanksgiving turkeys to spank Numbuh 2 as punishment for catching her sabotaging one of Numbuh 3's dolls in a previous episode. This was later re-tooled into a standard 11-minute episode known as Operation: S.P.A.N.K.E.N.S.T.E.I.N.. The entire script was available for download as a PDF on the production blog but has since vanished.[2]

Operation: H.A.I.R.C.U.T.

This was an early name for Operation: D.A.D.D.Y. One major difference between the 2 is that the original was planned to have a flashback of Numbuh 1 before he lost his hair. Storyboards were on the production blog, but have since disappeared .[3]
