Codename: Kids Next Door Mission Weekend was a 51-hour marathon that ran from 7 pm on August 8, 2003, to 10 pm August 10, 2003. Although the main focus was Kids Next Door, Cartoon Network also aired Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Ed, Edd, n Eddy.

The main theme of the marathon was that the KND needed to build a satellite, and had to look in the other shows for clues. Throughout the marathon's several commercial breaks, Cartoon Network aired special bumpers, featuring spliced together footage of Kids Next Door characters interacting with characters from the other shows. Numbuh 1 stayed at the Treehouse, while Numbuhs 2 through 5 traveled "into" the other shows to team up with the "secret operatives" from other shows. [1] Numbuh 2 teams up with Dexter. Numbuh 4 teams up with Ed, Edd, and Eddy. Numbuh 3 teams up with Courage. Numbuh 5 teams up with The Powerpuff Girls. The bumpers featuring Numbuhs 2 and 3 are lost.

This marathon remains obscure, as only some footage has surfaced on YouTube. The found bumpers are complied in this playlist. [2] There is an article on the subject on Cartoon Network's wiki [3] and the Codename: Kids Next Door wiki[4]. A surviving ToonZone forum has a thread from August 8, 2003 (during the weekend it aired).[5]
