Availability information for this program

Math rules in the animated adventure series CYBERCHASE. CYBERCHASE energizes kids ages eight to eleven with math power. Full of cyber-mysteries with eye-popping animation and a sly comic flair, the daily series features the voices of Christopher Lloyd and Gilbert Gottfried. CYBERCHASE sends the message that math is fun - it's about problem solving and, boy, does it come in handy. When the dastardly villain Hacker (Lloyd) launches a mad mission to conquer the virtual universe, Motherboard calls upon three earth kids for help. They are Jackie, Matt and Inez - the culturally diverse heroes of CYBERCHASE - who, along with the wise-cracking cyber-bird Digit (Gottfried), travel from their real-world realm to the colorful virtual vistas of cyberspace, where they vanquish the bad guys in an all-out battle of wits. Each episode takes the kids on a thrilling adventure driven by a different math concept - from tackling time in ancient Egyptian tombs to cracking codes in creepy caves or making sense of numbers in a fractured fairy tale world.

Episodes:

  • Parks and Recreation

    Kids in glamorous Gollywood have no safe place to play. When they discover an empty lot that can be converted to a park, they have only one opponent: Hacker. He wants the lot for his new Gollywood Tower, which he claims will broadcast entertainment to all of Cyberspace. (The tower is really meant to corrupt Motherboard's hard drive.) The CyberSquad goes up against Hacker at a city council hearing. Will they get their park, or will Hacker dazzle the council into approving his tower? Big idea: Communities need to provide safe, inviting outdoor spaces where kids can play and be physically active. Math concepts: Data Collection and Representation: Surveys, Tally Marks.

  • Return to Sensible Flats

    (topic: Line Graphs) - Something is amiss with the bliss of Sensible Flats. The reservoir is dry. The town is out of water. And the folks who live there are leaving as fast as they can. But why? When the kids and Digit arrive, they use line graphs to reveal the true story of what happened - and all lines lead to Hacker, the newest resident of Sensible Flats. The Big Idea: You can use a line graph to tell a story about how things change, and make predictions.

  • Escape from Merlin's Maze

    On the prowl for a new power source, Hacker descends on Frogsnorts School of Sorcery. His scheme? To steal Professor Stumblesnore's wand and harness its awesome magic to energize himself. Hacker's first task is to get star student Shari Spotter out of his way. He entraps Shari in Merlin's Maze by blocking her path with a series of heavy stone slabs. The CyberSquad learns of Shari's plight, but the slabs that block her escape are too heavy to move unaided. In their rescue mission, the kids experiment with levers and discover a proportional rule: Multiply the length of your lever and you will similarly multiply the weight you can lift. They free Shari, but not in time: Hacker has been successful and stolen Stumblesnore's magic! Is Shari's magic powerful enough to defeat him?

  • A Reboot Eve to Remember

    It's that time of the year again: Reboot Day - when all of cyberspace celebrates a fresh start and all the bots make Reboot resolutions! It's Delete's favorite holiday, but Hacker is having none of it; he's in a foul mood because he's low on energy. Fortunately for him, the little windy town of Bottowa has a powerful energy source that'll put new pep in his step. Unfortunately for the Bottowans, this power source is what raises the big ball at the stroke of midnight on Reboot Eve (like dropping the big ball in Times Square, but in reverse), and their celebration is being broadcast live across Cyberspace! When Hacker steals the energy source, Delete is so upset that he decides to stay behind and join forces with the CyberSquad, who have come to help the poor little town from Virtual World-wide humiliation. To do this, they'll try to harness the natural power of the wind and build a giant windmill. But will they be able to finish it all by the stroke of midnight? And will Delete decide to stay in Bottawa forever?

  • Inside Hacker

    It's the CyberSquad's most ingenious plan ever - and most dangerous! If they can insert a new memory chip into Hacker's H-Drive, they can turn him from evil to good. Once he's been shrunk and is inside Hacker, Matt's mission goes like clockwork until a force field is activated and envelops the H-Drive. All seems lost until Digit remembers a robot that Dr Marbles made that can break through any force field. They can shrink it down and send it in to help Matt... but must first figure out how to make it follow their commands. Can Inez, Jackie and Digit program the robot in time?

  • Codename: Icky

    (topic: Codes) - In the watery depths of cybersite Aquari-yum, the kids and Hacker go in search of a giant cyber-slug, who feeds on pure energy. The kids and Digit travel underwater in two separate vessels, but Hacker has a listening device that taps into their communications system, allowing him to overhear their plans - and track every move they make. The kids outsmart Hacker by devising a series of codes so they can send messages back and forth in secret - even though Hacker can hear what they're saying. But unless the kids can reach the slug first, Hacker will use the slug to attack Motherboard's circuitry and disable her once and for all! The Big Idea: You can use a code (a communication system that substitutes one thing for another) to send top-secret messages as long as your code has an adjustable rule that can be reversed to read the message.

From a new head of gorgeous hair to total cyberdomination, Hacker enjoys wreaking havoc with his new Ring. While racing to reclaim the Ring, the CyberSquad meets a mysterious teenborg named Slider. He seems nice, but whose side is he really on? The kids must all work together to get the Ring back from Hacker and put it inside the Circle of Supreme Safety before Hacker destroys Motherboard once and for all. But the Ring must be placed in the exact center of the circle -- only then will it be safe from those who wish to use its power to harm others.

    Matt is setting up the farm for his family's annual Halloween Pumpkin Patch Party and he is so excited! All his relatives come for the celebration, and even Grammy will be there this year! Inez and Jackie urge Matt to take a quick break and go into Cyberspace for Haunt-O-Rama at R-Fair City - an amusement park cybersite lit up to the nines for the Halloween holiday. The girls assure Matt he will be back home in plenty of time, and he agrees to go. But all their plans change when Hacker traps the kids on R-Fair City, hacking the portal system so they can't get back to Earth! (He thought he was keeping them out of Cyberspace for good, but alas, Buzz and Delete botched their task yet again.)

  • Less Than Zero

    The Leaders of Cyberspace have gathered to discuss Hacker's increasing influence, when they are suddenly interrupted by Hacker. Buzz and Delete, Hacker's henchmen, hide the leaders including Dr. Marbles, in the building and its' up to the kids to rescue them. Before long, the kids discover that they can only move between the building's levels by scaling its outside walls! So the kids turn the building into a giant ruler in order to keep track of the floors. And when they discover that there are levels beneath what they thought was "zero," the kids must tap into the power of negative numbers. The Big Idea: Numbers don't have to stop at zero! Negative numbers -- numbers that are less than zero -- can extend the range of what you can measure on a scale and give you the ability to compare numbers using direction as well as amount.
