THIS WEEK ON CARTOON NETWORK...

CODENAME: KIDS NEXT DOOR
SEASON TWO!


Yup... as per the Cartoon Network schedule over HERE, they'll be airing a big chunk of KND season two this week!

And what a season it is:

Symbiotic Moustaches!
The Fourth Flavor!
Battle Ready Armor!
Cheese Ninjas!
Dueling Tubas!
Undead Hamsters!
Kid's Meals made with real Kids!

It's a wonder the KND survived such villainy!

And speaking of villains... this is the season we met The Crazy Old Cat Lady, Mr. Fizz, King Sandy and Numbuh Five's traitor sister Cree!

We also got to meet more of the KND organization-- like the boy hating Numbuh 86 and future Supreme Commander Numbuh 362!

So just for fun... here are some tidbits from the episodes that air this week:

Operation: POP - Ultra powered Head Writer of Wrongs Mo Willems and I formulate the theory that KND stories need an 'evil' and a 'sooper evil' . In this one the evil is 'adults raising the drinking age of soda to 13' and the sooper evil is '...but they're actually BOTTLING kids until they're 13'.


Operation: SUPPORT - I thought it would be cool to name Numbuh Five's older sister after the actress that played Numbuh Five but wasn't sure she'd approve. So during a recording session I asked Cree Summer if it was cool and she let out an ear piercing scream that absolutely meant YES.

OPERATION: MOVIE - To fill out the crowd of villains in the theatre, the character designers made villains out of almost all the KND crew. Someone listed a couple of them HERE.

Operation: GHOST - The original story was deemed TOO SCARY by Cartoon Network and had to be toned down a bit.

Operation: FLAVOR - The mysterious Fourth Flavor was almost licensed to an ice cream company! There was going to be a contest where kids could write in to say what they think it tasted like. Sadly, it never happened.


Operation: FUGITIVE - Many people thought the design of Numbuh 86 looked just like CN exec Linda Simensky. I tried explaining to them that 86 was Irish and had flaming red hair-- two things that Linda had not, but they still insisted I change the design... especially because 86 was such a nasty character. Linda happened to be stopping by the studio that day so I showed her the design and asked her who it looked like. "ME," she said. When I explained to her that the character was kind of a b*tch... she ordered me to leave it as is.

And there ya go!

Hope you enjoy the shows this week... hopefully there'll be more next week!
