* In ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', Numbuh 86 appears to recruit people for a girls-only mission. Numbuh 3 agrees to go. [[BoisterousBruiser Numbuh 4]], not wanting to miss the action, disguises himself as a girl and tags along, claiming his codename is "Numbuh Four... Thirty... Teen... Seven". Though considering the Kids Next Door database has accepted names such as "Numbuh 65.3", "Numbuh 30c", "Numbuh 19th Century" and "Numbuh T", it's not ''that much'' of a stretch to accept there's a "Numbuh Four Thirty-Teen Seven".
