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 ...Written by

Originally there was going to be a spin-off learning series with the binomes as the character. It never went into production, however a concept art sheet can be seen in the Reboot Art Book. See more »
In the episode "Painted Windows," when entering Lost Angles,
Glitch, who had been "melted" early in the episode, kept appearing on Bob's arm. On the Bob "stand ups," you can see when Glitch had been put there on accident. See more »

Several episodes were changed for their original U.S. airings. In "The TIFF", when Dot punches Bob, there is normally a loud smack noise. ABC replaced this with Bob saying "ouch!" "Web World War" was changed significantly, with many small parts cut out, including the destruction of Dot's Diner. When Cartoon Network aired "Mousetrap" in April '99, they cut out the entire party sequence due to the implied alcoholic intake, though a similar scene in "End Prog" was left intact. See more »
I was so overwhelmed by how smart this series was. It quickly became one of my favourite TV-series, because of the multi-dimensional characters and the imaginative world built upon this computer operating system and the internet. Since ReBoot was the first fully computer animated TV-series I think it is genius to make build the world like that.
What I mean by never expecting it to be so awesome was my ambivalent feelings toward CGI, because I despise when hand-drawn movie frachises transition into such. And at times ReBoot does make these unnecessary close-ups on faces which gets tiring. But that's the only thing worth noting.
And MAN I love Tony Jay as Megabyte! He is one of my favorite television voices, and this is his best perforance along with Disney's Frollo. Intense, merciless and tyrannical just as Jay does it best. And Hexadecimal is also delightfully over-the-top evil and will probably scare younger viewers more than once with her masked design.
Some of these storlines are among some of the best TV I have ever seen, and how unpredictable it can be really makes it engaging. These characters are so likable that you care about everything that happens to them. And to underline my point, I once in a while simply forgot they were animated because of those brilliant performances.
We really need ReBoot to be revived properly, because like many TV-series we ended on that cursed cliffhanger. But ReBoot is awesome, just in case you didn't notice ;)
