The debut feature film from TjsWorld2011 Entertainment, it was originally released on May 13, 1994 by 20th Century Fox. Its story follows a young girl (Tara Strong) who is recruited into a secret organization and learns that the recent presidential election was rigged by a foreign enemy; the organization's team is thus assigned the mission to thwart its assault on the United States before the new forced president's inauguration.
Upon its release, Operation BLUE was a critical and commercial success, grossing $140.7 million worldwide on a $48 million budget. It was later released on October 11, 1994 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 on May 13, 2014 to commemorate its twentieth anniversary.
When he graduated from CalArts in December 1992, TjsWorld2011 was encouraged by his friend and colleague Ntpockets to start a production company; they thus founded the studio TjsWorld2011 Entertainment the next month, at an unoccupied building in Central Los Angeles, California.
