Sooper Triple Rare?

So every day KND operatives write asking me a lot of VERY important questions. Like these:

'Oh hai, im in ur internets wondering can i haz more KND episodes pleez k thx'


'In Operation: INTERVIEWS I noticed that Numbuh Four was standing exactly 15.5 inches away from Numbuh Three, which is the EXACT distance that married couples stand apart from each other in Pre-Serbo-Texan wedding ceremonies (circa 1453 BC) so obviously that means that Numbuh Four likes (as in likes LIKES likes likes LIKEY like likes) Numbuh Three. Right? Could you please confirm this so I can tell everyone on the 3/DCFDTL message board 'in your face'?'

Important, indeed. But one of the most frequent and important questions is this:

'Where can I find the Codename: Kids Next Door Sooper Hugest Missions File 2 DVD?'

And you know me. I love to give clear concise answers to everyone's questions. So this is what I tell 'em:


Ya see it's like this- For some crazy reason, Cartoon Network only made a limited amount of File 2 and sent them out in limited distribution. And they went kind of fast. And for some OTHER crazy reason, they never made any more. So nowadays if you go somewhere like HERE you can see it, but you can't buy it- hence the 'currently unavailable' notice. They also don't mention what episodes are on it, but I will:

1. Operation: C.A.N.N.O.N.

2. Operation: C.A.M.P.

3. Operation: C.H.A.D.

4. Operation: S.H.A.V.E.

5. Operation: T.R.I.P.

6. Operation: T.R.A.I.N.I.N.G.

7. Operation: D.A.T.E.

I think the really funny thing is that I don't even have a copy of it. Cartoon Network didn't send enough for our crew (par for the course) so we raffled 'em off. I figured I'd just get one later.

I never did.

But if YOU got one, maybe it'll one day be considered a 'collector's item' and you can sell it for eleventy ka-hundred dollars. And if you do, just make sure you hook me up with some curly fries the next time ya see me.

It's not common knowledge, but I spend a LOT of time in my office wondering.

About what, you ask? That's a good question.

Mainly I wonder where I'm gonna get a bowling ball. I mean, even in New York City, where you can get ANYTHING, it's not like there's a bowling ball shop on every corner. Or a cart that sells them. Or even a shady guy hawkin' them in an alley on the wrong side of town. So imagine my delight when a fan sends me a link to this:


Go ahead... click that link and feast your eyes. Bowling balls... ka-thousands of them. All online.

Oh, but it gets better. As you can see from the picture above, they sell a Codename: Kids Next Door bowling ball. Click HERE to check it out!

Now the big question is... how much is it gonna cost to ship one of those things?

* note: mr. warburton does not actually spend time thinking about bowling balls. he's thinking about robots fighting dinosaurs

I'm pretty sure you know by now that Billy and Mandy creator Maxwell Atoms and I came thisclose to taking over the world a long time go but just couldn't agree on how to divide up all the Pokemon cards. So rather than wage eternal war against each other, we decided to make cartoons instead. And while these days both of our respective endeavors have come to an end (for now) Mr. Atoms seems to have pulled one more premiere from his exquisitely tailored sleeve.

So ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, KND operatives and teenagers, I present to you the airdate for UNDERFIST, a one-shot spinoff of Billy and Mandy starring some of your favorite (or not so favorite) characters (specifically Hoss Delgado, Irwin, Fred Fredburger, Skarr, and Jeff the Spider... with a liberal dose of Billy, Mandy and Grim, of course) all teamed up to kick all-new butt. Preceding this tour-de-awesome is a Billy and Mandy marathon to get you in the mood. Allow me to explain:

Sunday, October 12th

Billy & Mandy Marathon:

2pm "Hoss Delgado: Spectral Exterminator/Educating Grim/The Crawling Niceness"

2:30pm "Skarred For Life/Bearded Billy"

3pm "Spider's Little Daddy/That's My Mummy"

3:30pm "My Fair Mandy"

4pm "Irwin Gets a Clue/Spider Mandy"

4:30pm "Keeper of the Reaper"

6pm "The Most Greatest Love Story Ever Told Ever/Dracula Must Die"

6:30pm "Billy & Mandy's Jacked Up Halloween

And who knows... if you like it, maybe Mr. Atoms will make more. It would keep him off the streets and out of my hair.

So what're you doing wasting time reading dumb blogs?
Go get this book!

Speaking of books... I caught decomissioned KND agent Numbuh 9 Numbuh 9 Numbuh 9 (aka MO WILLEMS) at the Brooklyn Book Fest reading to a rabid crowd of kids that couldn't get enough of his stuff- which included the not yet released: 'Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed' and my son's new favorite Elephant and Piggie book, 'Are You Ready To Play Outside?'. Awesome stuff as always!

I'm a jerk, right? I finally tell you that one book is available, only to turn around and introduce you to two more that aren't.

I always wanted to meet Bob Boyle, former art director of Fairly Odd Parents and Danny Phantom and creator of Nick Jr's Wow Wow Wubbzy and Disney's Yin Yang Yo. Mainly because I wanted to rip his face off and prove to the world that he's a robot- an automaton programmed for inhuman levels of talent and work ethic. i mean, no HUMAN could run TWO sooper cool shows at the same time, right?



And while I'd occasionally see Mr. Boyle lounging about the aforementioned Sooper Exclusive Cartoon Creator's Club House, I never got a chance to introduce myself (and rip his face off) before he disappeared into the 'I've Got More Than One Cartoon' private bathroom- which I'm not allowed in. (I'm WORKING on it... okay?!)

But last week, my big chance came! Former KND voice director Collette 'Sunderwoman' Sunderman, who also works with robot- er, Bob... was in NYC and invited me to dinner.
And guess who was gonna be there?

So I'm thinkin'- 'It's face ripppin', robot revealin' time, baby!'

We went out, had some root beers, ate some delicious BBQ food, and got to chat with his lovely wife, Terri (who also works in animation... robot?), and some other Wubbzy folk. And you know what?

I had such a great time I TOTALLY forgot to rip his face off.

But I DID get Bob to draw me this awesome pic of Wubbzy.

Next time, Bob Boyle... your face is MINE!
