The extraordinary adventures of life within a computer, as depicted in one of the world's first totally-computer-generated series. The riotous humour, infinitely-variable action and scenery, and intelligent use of every computer reference known, combine to produce a stunning universe where good constantly fights the forces of evil. Dot Matrix and her brother Enzo, plus thousands of friendly binomes, live in Mainframe, which is plagued by viruses Megabyte and sister strain Hexadecimal. Guardian Bob is sent from the Net to protect them, and soon makes it his home. Together, they must prevent Megabyte from taking control of all the systems. As an added complication, games being played by the mystical User invade the system regularly, and must be defeated, or else portions of the city are laid waste... This gives us a chance to see every genre of video-game ever conceived, from the point of view of the characters! When Megabyte finally manages to banish Bob, Enzo takes over as the city's ...

During pre-production of the series, all the characters were going to be binomes. However animators have successfully achieved in creating a handful of human-like character for the series. The models of the binomes were really easy to change and alter to end up creating a whole cast of extras for the cartoon. As the series progress, more human like characters were introduce than in the first season. See more »

Matrix! It's about time you got here. Call off your mangey mutt.
Powerlock. What happened here?
I caught these two trying to crash the system.
Hmm? Frisket, sniff!
[Frisket starts sniffing the spectrols and then turns his head towards Powerlock and growls]
Frisket always had a thing for viruses.
Stop. One more move and the system crashes.

Detractors are missing the point -- this is the best animated art ever on TV!
The original premise is simple and somewhat lighthearted. What would it be like to live INSIDE a video game, where you were the one of the entities that had to deal with the "user," who lives outside? That kind of plotline, and that this is a cartoon marketed to kids, is bound to win quick dismissal from many of those looking for "serious" fiction and perhaps that is justified. But Reboot is far more than that.
Recall how the old WB and other cartoons -- those that were originally "short" features in movie houses before most people had color TV -- were carefully scripted to appeal at multiple levels. The adults would get the sly humor and the kids would be beguiled by the cartoon action. That exists in Reboot to the extent that you can videotape each episode, watch it ten times, and still not catch everything there. A subtle expression on Dot's face or a background event shows stunning attention to detail. Don't cheat yourself out of not watching this!
