Farewell, Kids Next Door by Kroizat Farewell, Kids Next Door by Kroizat
Saw this pic, [link] and it got me to think what is Numbuh 1 doing right now?

I suppose it was a bittersweet finale. Sweet because the KND was given a proper ending and had the most emotional goodbyes in the history of recent animation, and bitter because it ended with a lot of questions yet to be answered, and the fact the show has ended. Still, I was satisfied and thoroughly enjoyed the show finale of the Kids Next Door. Thanks to all who crafted this show into becoming one of the most enjoyable show on Cartoon Network. It has been a pleasure. Correct me if I got the names wrong.

About the pic, well, Nigel is on the way to the Galactic KND headquarters... reminiscing his past days with his friends and family. He misses them so much. I suppose it's a reflection of us fans right now, sad that show has reached the end, and happy that it ended gracefully.

"No P in the OOL" - "Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S."

End Transmission.

Such a great way to end the series. Especially the ending and even this image after the credits:…

Thank you Mr. Warburton for making this awesome show. We need more shows like this.

So where did Nigel go after this, what direction do you suppose his life went in considering all the loopholes in the possibilities of the future?

Or go crazy and blow up the earth to get rid of the adults on it but also his friends and family.

I didn't watch the finale because I wasn't into KND at the time (my reason that I stopped watching it is pretty ridiculous but I was still 14 at the time [also my main reason for commenting]) Although, I got back into it along with a couple others I stopped for similar reasons and viewing it made me wish I had seen it at the time.

This was truly a great series, I still get teary-eye when occasionally re-watching that finale.
What a beautiful tribute to the show this is, I love how much emotion you forged in it. =')

This song, "Say Goodbye" by S Club 7, definitely suits this fanart. People and things come and go, whether you're leaving your friends, your old house or anything old behind. Every time we leave something behind, we open up a new chapter in this book called life. Farewells and goodbyes are the hardest things to do and say but we'll always remember our experiences and friends in many years to come when we look back on them.


Unfortunately as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end".

I saw Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S. a couple of weeks ago and it still made me cry and I'm 17

Watched it the first time after 6 years. Still got teary eyed.
Knd Forever~!

I have to admit, KND was a very well creative show and each episode does show from the kids point of views when tackling certain subjects ( romance, friendship, trust/betrayal and the most importation one.....What is a Bra!)

I've never seen A cartoon be creative when it comes to explaining what a bra is to a child and lead to some funny moments!.....

Years now I find myself missing that show, I hope Cartoon network will air some re-runs
Michael260315 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013   Traditional Artist
Well, you said it right. I hope they do air some re-runs. Miss that show. 
Krispina-The-Derp Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013
yeah... the re-runs will air once a blue moon

I always knew that he'd break down... It's okay.
What you did over here's one of the best artworks I've ever seen in my life. Suggesting it'd deserve more than a wave of well-deserved favorites and heartwrenching comments from us. :heart:

Seriously, who wouldn't after jumping to such a compromising challenge? Despite being the best operative from the Kids Next Door in Earth, Nigel was still a kid: with a lovely family. With friends he cared about. Got to the conclusion that we'll never be able to find a reasonable answer for so many questions one of my best childhood memories left behind as it simple 'slipped'.

With the conclusion of this amazingly done cartoon series, my childhood reached a slow ending [I've passed my 13th birthday when 'Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S'. aired on Mexico after a worth watching marathon]. I'm still quite upset yet grateful to watched the whole project. Thank you so much for everything, Mr. Warburton.

The ending was sad but beautiful......I love this show too bad it had to end. But even if Number 1 is far away he and his friends will always be together........No matter what, they always will be best friends.

It finished with the movie "Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S." (It's Now The Extra Really Very Interesting End Wrap-Up Story)
kayanne21 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Uh...this might be a little out of left field but isn't him mum worried about him. As far as I remember she had little to no knowledge about the KND. His dad did but his mum didn't. Does she just think that her son has gone missing?
Jexxinto Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Student General Artist
his mom was actually the first female KND agent
kayanne21 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow. Did not know that...does she remember?
Jexxinto Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013  Student General Artist
no, but neither does his dad.

Although, they can remember if recommissioned.
kayanne21 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
So in other words, neither parent knows anything about where their child has gone and never will... Geez
ASkinnyWhiteGuy Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
I'd be more than happy to make a KND: Next Generation series. Problem is, I'm not a cartoonist. Nor will I become one. But a guy can dream, can't he?

When it ended, I was so sad yet relieved it had a proper and final ending. I'm glad Number 1 came back, but I would love to know what he did all those years in space.

did you make this when the show ended?
Afalstein Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012
Could I crop part of this and use it as the cover for my Nigel GKND oneshot on

Codename KND was a great cartoon, and to see this show end the same time I started growing up makes it all the more sad, all well it had a god run and it was good for the show to end with such a bang
LeotordoTH Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011
Huh? Is it already ended?
I never knew before.
Blossomforth Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Hobbyist Writer

In the show, I liked Numbuh Four's reaction the best. "Yeah, yeah, I know. Ya gotta go save the space kids in Canada and stuff." XD
