Inside of your computer is a world you've only dreamed of. A small system/city known as Mainframe is watched over by a "living on the edge" guardian named as Bob. With the help of the work-a-holic Dot Matrix and her hyper active little bother, Enzo, they protect Mainframe from viruses and games. As their lives grow more chaotic by the nanosecond, Bob becomes a part of their family and makes the city his home. Yet what starts off as casual battles and teasing of the viruses changes into a serious threat that could cost Bob, Dot, Enzo and their friends not only their lives, but Mainframe as well.
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 Guardian, but things will never be quite the same...
ReBoot set the bar for cg-animated tv for generations to come, and it's been widely regarded as a classic cultural milestone from the 90s, just like Pokemon or Spongebob went on to be comparable phenomena in the decade. Also, it's Canada's BEST cartoon ever! It's eons ahead of the other animated stuff the country's produced over the last decade, and ReBoot is still great entertainment for kids and adults today. Compare it to something like Total Drama Island: there's no comparison as to which one is better.<br/><br/>ReBoot is great 90s entertainment and came at a time when computers were truly on the rise in the entertainment industry. It's maintained a cult following since its debut in 1994, it's still good even after all the shows which came after it, and I still reckon it's a good childhood memory.
This is, undoubtedly, my favorite T.V. show. It is to die for. The animation is phenomenal, especially considering it was made before CGI became such a popular medium. The characters are well defined and have depth to them, showing that even heroes are human (or in this case, sprites). The voice actors behind the characters are amazing. As for the humor- well, if you don't use computers, you'll think the jokes are very funny. If you do use computers, you'll think they're hilarious. One of the best parts is their parodies of other shows, all of which are also hilarious. But, coming through the humor are their well written, sometimes serious and always interesting story lines. This is one show that will have you on the edge of your seat one moment and laughing hysterically the next.
