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

I recently decided to go back to college to further my education. In order to get started, I needed pre-algebra. My kids only watch PBS because of the questionable content of other cartoons that are out there. They love the show. While watching it with them and doing my math homework, I found so many links between my homework and the show that it was just scary. As funny as this may sound, I found it to be a big help for those having trouble in this subject. I think this could benefit children in school because they may see these examples from the show later on in school. Thus making learning easier. Much like School House Rock has done. Gilbert Gotfried and Christopher lloyd lend very entertaining voices. The situations are clever, and the lessons are easy for children to follow. Or, just plain fun to watch for those who don't care or are too young. You also get a real life situation at the end of the show involving what you just watched. Harry and Bianca are very funny. To really understand, you must watch. I recommend it.
