[via press release from Cartoon Network]

One Hour Not Enough to Contain the Sooper Gihoogic Codename Kids Next Door: Operation Z.E.R.O.

Hit series� first long-form bows August 11

Top 10 Villain Countdown ignites the action beginning July 31

New Operation Z.E.R.O game, Outnumbuh�d, launches August 7

Cartoon Network�s sooper-secret, international alliance of five eager yet bumbling 10-year-olds, the Kids Next Door, face their biggest adventure yet when an evil emerges that threatens not only kids, but the world itself! Codename: Kids Next Door: OPERATION Z.E.R.O. (Zero Explanation Reveals Origins) is a feature-length escapade that needs 90 minutes to unfold as it reaches far back into the mysterious, ancient origins of The Kids Next Door�s global organization. The looming threat of both kids and adults being turned into tapioca-eating, hideously wrinkly Senior Citizombies forces the team to re-commission their greatest operative ever to join them in a battle that exposes Earth-shattering revelations about KND as well as their arch enemies. OPERATION Z.E.R.O. will debut on Friday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m. Leading up to the launch is a Top Ten Villain Countdown starting Monday, July 31 at 4:00 p.m. during Miguzi. Over 10 weekday afternoons a KND episode featuring a different villain � from the slap-happy Count Spankulot to the food-crazed Gramma Stuffum � will advance viewers toward this sooper triple explosive chapter in KND history.

Cartoon Network games group further stokes the Operation Z.E.R.O. hotness with a single-player arcade action game � Outnumbuh�d � in which players take on the role of a KND Operative and upon completion of the game reach an exclusive sneak peek video clip! Outnumbuh�d will be available on the special event KND page (www.operationzero.net ) beginning August 7.

Like any good team, the operatives in Codename: Kids Next Door each have their own distinct skills and personalities. Numbuh One is British-born Nigel Uno, the cunning, slightly overzealous leader of the group. Hoagie P. Gilligan, Jr. the group�s expert pilot and mechanical genius, is known as Numbuh Two and hails from the United States. Diversionary tactics are the domain of Japanese operative Kuki Sanban a.k.a. Numbuh Three. The brash, impulsive Australian Numbuh Four, Wallabee Beetles, is a master of hand-to-hand combat. Rounding out the group is the team�s other American operative, Abigail Lincoln, alias Numbuh Five, the smartest KND operative this side of puberty.

Tackling really important issues facing their peers, such as the right to crash �adult swim� at the local pool or stopping the drinking age of soda being raised to 13, the crew takes on top secret missions utilizing their patented �2 x 4 Technology.� With incredible resourcefulness, the kids use everything from moldy plywood and Styrofoam cups to spare tires and used chewing gum to build such vital contraptions as an Intercontinental Clam Cannon and nacho cheese-powered flying machines. Most of the construction is done inside the KND headquarters, a massive tree house that harnesses the power of thousands of hamsters to operate its impressive security system and elaborate mechanical devices.

Codename: Kids Next Door debuted on Cartoon Network in December 2002, having been greenlit to become a Cartoon Cartoon original series by Cartoon Network viewers through an online vote. The show consistently delivers an average 1.2 million viewers ages 2+ year-to-date.
