The show revolves around a group of five 10-year old kids, using codenames Numbers 1 through 5, who are the main home operatives of what is known as Sector V, which is part of a worldwide espionage-style organization called the Kids Next Door. Their mission is to fight crimes against kids (such as homework and flossing), many of which are willingly committed by “evil” adults, senior citizens, teenagers, and other children. Numbuh 1 is the bald, astute, no-nonsense British-American boy Nigel Uno, leader of Sector V. Numbuh 2 is overweight, intellectual, aviation enthusiastic, pun-cracking German-American boy Hoagie Gilligan Jr. Numbuh 3 is the happy-go-lucky Japanese-American girl Kuki Sanban. Numbuh 4 is the short-tempered and fighting-prone Australian-American boy Wallabee Beatles. Numbuh 5 is the intelligent, laid-back, tomboyish African-American girl Abigail Lincoln.
Following a period of training, every member of the Kids Next Door chooses a number or alphanumeric code (deliberately pronounced and spelled as “Numbuh”) and is sent to a “sector” that acts as their home base. The sector headquarters, like some of the organization’s bases and facilities, are tree houses, with both treehouse and the tree it’s in being of ludicrous proportions, and often suited to their environment. This includes a base constructed beneath the Arctic ice shelf, and a base built into a large pine tree. The main headquarters of the Kids Next Door is a treehouse Moon Base. Kids follow their oath of protecting other kids as well as battling adulthood until the age of 13 when they are “decommissioned”, a process of wiping their memories of any past KND activity and warping their minds. Such a practice has inevitably led to the creation of many KND villains who escaped decommissioning (such as Numbuh 5’s older sister Cree, formerly known as Numbuh 11, and Chad, formerly known as Numbuh 274 and supreme commander of the Kids Next Door).
The practice of strict decommissioning at age 13 was later on revealed to be subject to exceptions: kids who are deemed exceptional agents are offered the chance to carry on in KND as spies infiltrating the teen organization. Decommissioning has also proved reversible due to a “re-commissioning” module used four times in the series (once in Operation: E.N.D. and three times in Operation: Z.E.R.O.).
KND agents utilize a vast array of mechanical, electronic gadgets, weapons, and machinery, collectively referred to as 2×4 (two-by-four) technology. The KND’s 2×4 technology was originally conceived as being constructed from an assortment of objects, mostly including those that are found in common households; a theme their technology continued to adhere to. However, as the series progressed, the kind of objects their technology was constructed from became bigger, consisting of things such as large vehicles and small buildings. Not only that, but the complexity of their technology, such as their defensive weaponry and means of transportation, advanced to such absurd levels as to be considered science fiction, despite all of it still being constructed from nothing but said an assortment of objects. Some KND operatives also wear helmets, with some similar to kabuto or samurai helmets, an example being Supreme Leader Numbuh 362’s helmet.
