Storyline

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 Thirteen/WNET New York

Trivia

During voice-over sessions, Christopher Lloyd delivers his lines while gesturing wildly to get the correct delivery. Animators would often record Lloyd's sessions to get down the motions of the Hacker. See more »

Inspiring
1 April 2005 | by gusj82See all my reviews

An enthralling series that inspires children to the real practicalities of mathematics. The authors have magically intertwined math lessons with intriguing story lines... similar to the very successful Magic School Bus series... any one with children will be able to fully appreciate how these pedagogical stories manage to entertain with so much valuable content. The visual styling of the show is beautiful, vibrant and stands out from the crowd of look a likes that fill children's programming. The use of textures and 3D elements create a balanced visual treat that keep the ever growing audience of this series coming back for more. The word texture also comes into play when listening to the wonderful voice talents. Who would have ever thought of mixing the voices of Christopher Lloyd and Gilbert Gottfried on the same stage? There are some wonderful comic moments when these two come face to face…. Well nose to beak.

I look forward to seeing more of these shows and shows created with the same philosophy in the future, it's a good thing that PBS realizes and uses the true possibilities of this medium. Thank you.
