Operation BLUE is a 1993 American animated spy action film written and directed by TjsWorld2011 (in his directorial debut) and co-written and produced by Ntpockets and Pyro R. The debut film from TjsWorld2011 Entertainment, its story follows a young girl (Tara Strong) who is recruited into a secret organization and learns that the recent presidential election was in fact rigged by a foreign adversary. The organization's team is thus assigned the mission to thwart its assault on the United States before the new forced president's inauguration.

Production on the film began not long after Tj's production company was founded in June 1992. Tj and Nt had both expressed that a spy film was the first film they wanted to produce for the company. Tj also expressed his desire to animate the entirety of the film's characters in the style of his close friend Craig McCracken's 1992 short Whoopass Stew! A Sticky Situation, due to him describing the style as having potential to become "something of an underground art movement". Nt was at first reluctant about this choice, fearing possible legal repercussions that would come with it, but eventually agreed after McCracken "unemphatically" gave them permission to do so. At the time of production, TW2011 Entertainment was a small studio with few employees; thus Operation BLUE was co-produced with animation studio Film Roman, with Tj describing the partnership as "giving our studio a jumpstart".

Operation BLUE was originally released in theaters on August 20, 1993 by 20th Century Fox. Upon its release, it was a critical and commercial success, grossing $132.7 million worldwide on a $48 million budget. Critics praised its style, animation, and its differentiation from most animated films at the time. The film was later released on December 7, 1993 on VHS and LaserDisc, on DVD on April 10, 2001, and on Blu-ray on February 8, 2011. It was re-released on DVD and Blu-ray to commemorate its twentieth anniversary on August 20, 2013, exactly twenty years after its original release date.
