Hogarth Hoagie Pennywhistle Gilligan, Jr., known by his codename Numbuh Two, is a Kids Next Door operative in Sector V. His aliases are "The Doofus", "The Pilot", and "The Inventor". He designs most of Sector V's two-by-four technology, including their treehouse, along with being the sector's official pilot and Technology Officer (Operation: L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N.). He was originally meant to be second-in-command of Sector V, but turned it down as it meant he couldn't pilot his own machines [this is also the reason he doesn't want to be leader (Operation: F.E.R.A.L.)]. He is either the second or third oldest operative of Sector V; according to Mo Willems the third oldest. He led the kids on "sled-wingers" (flying sleds) in Operation: S.N.O.W.I.N.G., but they were thwarted by textbooks thrown at them. McGillicutty was on his sled.

Numbuh 2 frequently cracks bad puns and jokes that no one else (including the students and faculty of Gallagher Elementary, shown in Op. C.L.O.W.N.) finds funny and is criticized for this by Numbuh Five (he only thinks it's because she lacks a sense of humour). When he hears others making funny jokes (making everyone laugh), he usually doesn't think of them as funny. His younger brother may tell him some of his bad jokes, as was revealed after Tommy made a bad pun and decided to tell his brother later. A pun (also known as paronomasia) is a figure of speech which consists of a deliberate confusion of similar words within a phrase or phrases for rhetorical effect, whether humorous or serious. ... // Description Abigail Abby Lincoln, known by her codename Numbuh Five is a fictional character and a Kids Next Door operative in Sector V.

He has been in an episode with each single operative alone including all of Sector V: Numbuh 1 in Op A.R.C.H.I.V.E., Numbuh 3 in Ops C.L.U.E.S. and S.P.A.N.K.E.N.S.T.I.N.E., Numbuh 4 in Ops T.H.E.-S.H.O.G.U.N., D.O.D.G.E.B.A.L.L., B.U.L.L.I.E.S. and S.A.F.E.T.Y., and Numbuh 5 in Ops R.A.B.B.I.T. and C.L.O.W.N.He has also been with numbah zero in Z.E.R.O


Although not much as been revealed about his background, it is known that he once had an addiction to chocolate sauce (Operation: S.P.A.N.K.E.N.S.T.I.N.E., in the original episode script he was formerly addicted to cranberry sauce), even seen bathing in it. Before he joined the KND, he was a hall monitor, partnered with Joe Balooka. Hall Monitor is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season one. ...


Numbuh 2 likes to eat, especially cheese and chili dogs (also spinach and Gramma Stuffum's food), and is frequently hungry on his missions and thus is rather overweight. Despite this however, Codename: Kids Next Door has rarely had his build mentioned as an overwhelming negative quality. This is something the show has been praised for, as the stereotype of overweight characters in American animation has been generally somewhat harsh. He wears an aviator's hat (with the number 2 on it), goggles, a blue shirt, light brown pants and black and white sneakers. Although he seldom removes his hat and goggles, he is seen to have messy brown hair. (Op A.R.C.T.I.C., Op L.I.C.E., Op C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E.). He partly resembles Klunk of Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines fame. Cheese is a solid food made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep, and other mammals. ...

He has a younger brother, Tommy (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker), who often gets on his nerves. This doesn't seem to bother the younger Gilligan, who obviously looks up to Numbuh Two. Just like Hoagie, Tommy cracks bad puns and jokes. Tommy went from being Hoagie's little brother, to being an operative (Numbuh T), to becoming "The Tommy", in the course of little over a season. Despite the aggravation, however, the two seem to actually be very close. Tommy Gilligan is a fictional character on the television show Codename: Kids Next Door. ... Dee Bradley Baker Dee Bradley Baker (born August 31, 1962 in Indiana) is an American voice actor for animated television series and video games. ...

Both brothers live with their mother Betty (Op C.L.U.E.S.). The whereabouts of Hoagie Sr. are unknown, although after Op C.A.K.E.D.-F.O.U.R., many believe him to be dead or otherwise missing from the household. Also in this same episode it is shown that Hoagie in particular seemed to have a very close relationship with his father, and seems to miss him tremendously. It is also hinted that Father seems to have known Numbuh 2's father previously, as he speaks to Numbuh 2 about his father in a negative way which infuriates Numbuh 2. The nature of their father's whereabouts and disappearance have yet to be fully addressed and has only been mentioned in C.A.K.E.D.-F.O.U.R. Numbuh Two also has a maternal grandmother, Lydia, who was a villain in Op T.A.P.I.O.C.A. (and also appeared in Op C.L.U.E.S. and Op S.P.A.N.K.E.N.S.T.I.N.E.). Lydia's speech patterns and occasional use of Yiddish have led some to speculate that she (and by the same token, Hoagie and Tommy) is Jewish. Although she seems rather hostile, she has actually come to the aid of the kids from time to time, although seemingly unintentionally. Lydia often forgets Numbuh 2's name, continually mixing him up with Tommy, to which Numbuh 2 often has to correct her with "That's Hoagie".

He possibly has a dog, as in Operation: T.R.I.C.Y.C.L.E. he says (in response to Tommy asking why they have to clean the garage) "because we haven't seen the dog in three months", to which Tommy replies "We have a dog?" Trinomial name Canis lupus familiaris The dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is a domestic subspecies of the wolf, a mammal of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. ...


Numbuh Two is fond of mysteries and has undertaken the role of a private investigator in Operation: P.I.N.K.-E.Y.E. and has successfully completed detective work in Operation: C.L.U.E.S., as his KND training qualifies him as such. A private investigator, private detective, PI, or private eye, is a person who undertakes investigations, usually for a private citizen or some other entity not involved with a government or police organization. ...

He is skilled at piloting (he was known as "sky king Hoagie" in Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T.) and takes pride of this, angered that someone (The Kid) was better than him. The name PILOT is an acronym, and stands for Programmed Instruction, Learning, Or Teaching. ...

He is also skilled at mechanics and building things, as he managed to re-do the birthday suits to make someone stay the same age in Operation: Z.E.R.O.


Numbuh 2 is the inventor of all the technologies used by Sector V (other sectors, including Moonbase, have technology officers who do the same); he also designed Sector V's tree house. Also, Numbuh 2 seems to take great pride in his work, even going so far as to include his name in one of his former inventions (the S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.D.A.R.T., where the H in SHOPPING stood for Hoagie, which was terminated in Op. M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S.) A tree house Tree house (also spelled treehouse) refers to a hand-built wooden platform-based structure resembling a shed or house, that is built among the branches or around the trunk of one or more mature trees, and is a least six feet off the ground. ...


Numbuh 2 is North American, the only operative from Sector V from the area Sector V is located in. He is also mentioned to have relatives from Germany. Due to the fact that he is named after his father and Jews from Eastern Europe traditionally name their children after the dead, Hoagie may only be Jewish on his mother's side of the family.


Numbuh 1

Numbuh One and Numbuh Two have been best friends since kindergarten, as found out in Operation: Z.E.R.O.

Numbuh 3

Numbuh Two can behave short-tempered towards Numbuh Three, usually when they team up as a couple. Despite his apparent impatience, he has trusted her his recurrent job as a P.I. (Operation C.R.I.M.E.). Their relationship was eventually strengthened by the appearance of Bradley the Skunk, and their subsequent adoption of him (Operation C.A.M.P.). Sharing parental responsibilities has brought the trio back together in H.O.S.P.I.T.A.L. and S.I.X..

Numbuh 4

Numbuh Four is Numbuh Two's other best friend, as stated in Operation: F.I.S.H.Y. How they became friends is not known, but they have been paired up in many episode's. As shown in the comic Operation: T.R.I.K.E., they have known each other before they were in the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 2 likes to trick Numbuh 4, which annoys him (Operation: T.H.E.-S.H.O.G.U.N.) and annoy him along with Numbuh 5 about Wally's crush on Numbuh 3.(Op.B.E.A.C.H)

Numbuh 5

Numbuh Five often criticizes Numbuh Two for his bad jokes and puns. However, they do seem to be good friends - in fact, when Numbuh One told the rest of Sector V to pair up in Operation: D.A.T.E., Numbuh Five immediately picked Numbuh Two. They also appeared together in R.A.B.B.I.T. and C.L.O.W.N. without any other Sector V member in it. Curiously, in Operation: C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E. (the continuation of R.A.B.B.I.T.) she pulled several Numbuh Two-esque puns herself ("You're about to have a meltdown!"and"You can't hurt anyone any Smore.) The Numbuh Two/Numbuh Five pairing has become one of the larger ships in fandom.

The Kid

Numbuh 2 may have a friendly rivalry with another pilot only known as "The Kid", who rivals his piloting skill in Operation: D.O.G.F.I.G.H.T.

Love life

Cree Lincoln

Numbuh Two has a huge crush on Cree,who is Numbuh 5's older sister, despite the fact that she's older and can't stand him. When he had been turned into a teenager in Operation: K.I.S.S., though, they had a brief romantic relationship. However, whether or not these feelings still exist is debatable, especially after Cree's outing as a villain in season 2 (Operations S.U.P.P.O.R.T., K.I.S.S., S.P.A.C.E.). The issue was also explored in Operation: S.I.T.T.E.R., which was then revealed to be a dream sequence, and thus open to interpretation. Operation: V.I.R.U.S. shows Hoagie jealous of Maurice for going with Cree to their prom dance.

Numbuh 10

Numbuh 2 also has a crush on Numbuh 10, a fact introduced in Operation: C.O.U.C.H. when he commented on how he thought she was "easy on the eyes", and brought up once again in Operation: H.O.L.I.D.A.Y, when he said "she can fly my ship any day"



Numbuh 2 was accidentally turned into a skinny teen alter-ego (Hank) while working on an invention in Operation: K.I.S.S. to make a hamster very powerful. In this form, he won the affections of Cree (despite occasionally turning back into a kid, though Cree didn't see these transformations), and the two shared a kiss. When Cree attacked Sector V, though, Numbuh 2/Hank put his friends over his love life and stopped her, then revealed his true identity. Needless to say, Cree wasn't too happy about finding out who she'd really kissed.

Numbuh 2 Guy

The alter-ego of Numbuh 2 in Operation: R.E.P.O.R.T. when he told his side of the story. Acted like a superhero in a comic book. Had penetle vision (nothing can escape his gaze). His one weakness was supposedly anchovies, which the DCFDTL defeated him with.

Boys Next Door Member

In Operation F.U.T.U.R.E. there's a boy in the BND who looks and acts like Numbuh 2. Voiced by Tom Kenny. Thomas James Kenny (born July 13, 1962 in East Syracuse, New York) is an American voice actor who is perhaps best known for his work in the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, in which he is the voice of Spongebob, the narrator, Patchy the Pirate, and a number of other characters. ...

Negative Numbuh 2

Negative Numbuh Two (Eigaoh Eltsihwynnep Nagillig) is Numbuh Two's opposite, introduced in Operation: P.O.O.L. Unlike Positive Two, many people find his jokes funny.

Vice President Hoagie P. Gilligan

An evil adult alternate universe version of Numbuh 2. He tried to get President Uno (a.k.a Numbuh 1) to sign the bill of no rights for kids, and had evil adults Numbuhs 3 and 4 at his disposal. Had a mustache.

In the movie, Numbuh 2 suggests remodeling the KND's birthday suits so, when worn, they will make the person who wears them stay a kid and not a Senior Citizombie. He sent Numbuhs 3 and 4 to Sector V's treehouse to get a machine; but he had to work without it once they were turned into Senior Citizombies. He then worked in a closet guarded by Numbuh 86, finishing at least four birthday suits. When Numbuh 86 was Senior-Citizombified, she turned Numbuh 2 into a Senior Citizombie. A childs first birthday party. ...

The birthday suits were later used on Numbuhs 2, 3, 4, and 5 by Numbuh 1 to help him pedal the Moonbase into Earth.
