CYBERCHASE takes kids on a wild ride through cyberspace where they are challenged to use the power of math in a classic good-versus-evil battle. When the dastardly villain Hacker (played deliciously by Christopher 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 heroes of CYBERCHASE - who travel from their real-world realm, along with the wise-cracking cyber-bird Digit (comic actor Gilbert Gottfried), 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. In their quest, the heroes use minds, not muscles, to overcome obstacles and danger everywhere. Every episode of CYBERCHASE concludes with a "For Real" ... Written by

This was my favorite show growing up. Cyberchase helped foster my love of learning and even taught me math concepts that haven't come up in the classroom until High School. It's an odd feeling, being familiar with math you shouldn't be, and not being sure why. It gets even weirder when you remember what evil plot Hacker was up to when you learned it!! I'm a High School Senior now and in the top 1.4% of my class. I plan to major in a math heavy field from the most exclusive school in my state, and I doubt I would have been able to get this far without this amazing show. Thank you, PBS and the creators of Cyberchase!
