Operation BLUE is a 1993 American animated spy action film produced by TjsWorld2011 Entertainment and Film Roman for 20th Century Fox. The first feature film from TW2011 Entertainment, it was written and directed by TjsWorld2011 (in his directorial debut) and co-written and produced by Ntpockets and Pyro R. 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 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 its production, TW2011 Entertainment was a small studio with few employees; thus Operation BLUE was co-produced with veteran 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. It was a critical and commercial success, grossing $100.4 million worldwide on its $21 million budget. Critics praised its style, animation, and its differentiation from most animated films at the time. The film was later released on VHS and LaserDisc on September 13, 1994, on DVD on April 10, 2001, and on Blu-ray on February 8, 2011.
