 Hexadecimal (20 episodes, 1994-2001)


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 ...

Did You Know?


The series ran into numerous problems with ABC's Bureau of Standards and Practices, leading the makers to insert numerous jokes about "BS&P". See more »


It is established early on that simulated time is 10,000 times faster than real time, as the characters use the unit nanosecond like we use the second. Yet, in the one area where the characters interact with the Users (i.e, humans), the games, time passes at a much faster pace while it should be much, much slower. See more »

One of the best children's shows ever made.
4 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Recently I rediscovered ReBoot while I cleaned my house. It had been my favourite television program when I was younger, and I was eager to watch the tape full of recorded episodes that I had just found.

I discovered, while watching it, that ReBoot is not merely any old children's show.

It's set in a computer system called Mainframe, and the heroes of the show (called Sprites) battles computer viruses, games (sent by "the user") and other things that you would find in a computer.

This is a truly excellent show. It was the first series to be completely computer animated and the most cutting edge technology available at the time was used.

The thing I love about ReBoot is that the entire plot of the series is so original. Clearly the producers let their imaginations run wild, while still using true computer facts within the story. As the fun-loving computer geek that I am, I absolutely loved the computer jargon sprinkled into in each episode. And all the parodies they've done - from the X-Files to Pirates of Penzance - are fantastic and funny.

Although the first and second seasons were restricted by ABC ratings, the third season was definitely darker, and the plots more in-depth.

Reboot has come along way since 1994, and it's a shame that it's all over. I would've loved to see where they picked up after the two telemovies left off.

All in all, ReBoot is a pioneer for computer animation. Absolutely classic TV.
