In this sketch comedy series for preteens, principles of mathematics are presented through parody and music videos. Also featured is a mock video game called "Mathman," the bumbling cartoon detective Dirk Niblick, and a farcical serial called "Mathnet." In "Mathnet" (a parody of "Dragnet") Los Angeles detectives George Frankly and Kate Monday (and later Pat Tuesday) solve various capers with the help of mathematics. Written by

Square one simply rocked :) It was held together by a lot of silliness but that's ok. Mathman (pacman-like cartoon) ruled and was my favorite part of the show :) I was less fond of many of the game shows, especially "piece of the pie". Production was best during the first season, though later seasons had gems like "Nobody's Inn", a parody of John Cleese in "Faulty Towers" and nearly as well done :)
