Codename: Icky (#116) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Codes) - In the watery depths of cybersite Aquari-yum, the kids and Hacker go in search of a giant cyber-slug, who feeds on pure energy. The kids and Digit travel underwater in two separate vessels, but Hacker has a listening device that taps into their communications system, allowing him to overhear their plans - and track every move they make. The kids outsmart Hacker by devising a series of codes so they can send messages back and forth in secret - even though Hacker can hear what they're saying. But unless the kids can reach the slug first, Hacker will use the slug to attack Motherboard's circuitry and disable her once and for all! The Big Idea: You can use a code (a communication system that substitutes one thing for another) to send top-secret messages as long as your code has an adjustable rule that can be reversed to read the message.

Watts of Halloween Trouble (#1101) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY

Matt is setting up the farm for his family's annual Halloween Pumpkin Patch Party and he is so excited! All his relatives come for the celebration, and even Grammy will be there this year! Inez and Jackie urge Matt to take a quick break and go into Cyberspace for Haunt-O-Rama at R-Fair City - an amusement park cybersite lit up to the nines for the Halloween holiday. The girls assure Matt he will be back home in plenty of time, and he agrees to go. But all their plans change when Hacker traps the kids on R-Fair City, hacking the portal system so they can't get back to Earth! (He thought he was keeping them out of Cyberspace for good, but alas, Buzz and Delete botched their task yet again.) Upset that he came to R-Fair City in the first place, Matt is worried about missing his family's party. The kids must find enough energy on R-Fair City to power Digit's old Portal Rebooter and fix the system. With the Halloween celebration in full swing, can they find enough big and small ways to save energy amid the bright lights? And will Matt make it back in time to see Grammy?

Hacker's goal: transfer Marbles' brainpower into his newly-built robot named Megabyte! Summoned by Motherboard, the kids and Digit arrive with the knowledge that Hacker has taken Marbles to a castle - but which one? There are hundreds and hundreds of castles. To find Marbles, the kids must master the art of properly collecting data, organizing it and graphing the results - which are sometimes surprising! The Big Idea: Data is a lot more than a collection of numbers. When you gather it, organize and analyze it, you can discover useful information hidden in the numbers.

Spheres of Fears (#610) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

In his latest and possibly maddest scheme ever, Hacker traps Digit and the kids in one of the dreaded Spheres of Fears, a mini-galaxy of orbs populated by eerie creatures called Creepers. He wants them out of the way so that Delete, in a diva star turn, can impersonate Motherboard and convince everyone in Cyberspace to cause chaos everywhere. No one can stop him now! To unlock the door and escape their Sphere, the kids must find the codebook-which Digit remembers is at the opposite end of the Sphere's diameter. And there is no way any of them will make that creepy journey alone! As chaos builds in cyberspace, the team uses the relationship between circumference and diameter to overcome obstacles, and their fears, in the search for the codebook. But can they find it in time? If they fail, chaos will reign supreme, and Hacker will take over the virtual universe forever!

But before he can be put back in sync, he gets a glitch and tosses his crystal synchrometer into a tunnel and then flies off the wrong way down into a deep, dark chasm. Called in to help, Jackie, Matt and Inez meet Jules, the cave's timid guard, who teams up with them to find the synchrometer (using the unique geometry of crystals) and to find Digit, who's hopelessly lost. To thwart their plans, Hacker steals the Synchronizer. Can the kids figure out how to replace it and save their friend?

Jimaya Jam (#607) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker has discovered an army of awesome creatures he can use to rule cyberspace, but they are carved in stone on the walls of the Pyramid of Jimaya. To bring the animals to life, he must steal the Sphere of Being, a magical orb closely guarded by three ghosts (Hacker's worst nightmare). How can he distract them so he can steal the Sphere? Opportunity knocks when he tricks Jules, recently hired as tour guide, into pushing the wrong button and falling, along with the kids and Creech, into an underground arena from which there is no escape! Confronted by the Jam Master, the guardian of the pyramid, and the Pyramid's three ghosts, the kids are told they can go free if they can overcome the ghosts in a game of Jimaya Jam. The game is like basketball except for a few small quirks: When Matt tries to dribble and move the ball across the court, it breaks! And he can't move from where he stands on the court once he receives it. Coach Jackie struggles with a game plan until the kids realize that diagramming her plays makes it a whole lot easier to follow them. Down to their last ball, stopping Hacker rests on their ability to diagram and execute the right play.

A Battle of Equals (#125) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker pollutes cyberspace with dangerous cyberstatic by tampering with four satellites designed to keep everything free from cyber- static cling. But is his plan only to trash cyberspace - or does he have something even more devious up his cloak? The kids learn the answer as they use balance scales and equations to restore the satellites and save Motherboard. The Big Idea: You can use an equation - a statement that two different expressions are equal to each other - to find unknown values that make the equation true.

Kids in glamorous Gollywood have no safe place to play. When they discover an empty lot that can be converted to a park, they have only one opponent: Hacker. He wants the lot for his new Gollywood Tower, which he claims will broadcast entertainment to all of Cyberspace. (The tower is really meant to corrupt Motherboard's hard drive.) The CyberSquad goes up against Hacker at a city council hearing. Will they get their park, or will Hacker dazzle the council into approving his tower?

Can the kids find a counter example that proves Hacker is lying -- or will he be elected the new ruler of cyberspace? Guest voice: Al Roker as "Sam Vander Rom." The Big Idea: When people use words like always, never, all, or none to claim something is true, be suspicious!

But Hacker takes advantage of the mishap by sending the Delete clones to takeover the R-Fair City cybersite. To complicate matters, every time Delete sneezes - his clones multiply even more. As the problem escalates, the kids do the math to keep track of the number of clones as they increase. Meanwhile, Cy Clone, a famous clone catcher sent to the site by Motherboard, vacuums up the clones - while Digit tries to get the Clonitron away from Hacker. The Big Idea: Multiplication is just repeated addition. If you're having trouble multiplying, you can always add to find your answer.

To stop the kids and Digit from getting in his way, he tricks them into a cybersite from which escape seems impossible. In a confounding juxtaposition of scale and size, the kids first find themselves in a land of giants - then become giants themselves in a land of little people. The kids must cope with these disparities in scale and size, and use their brainpower to escape and warn Motherboard before Hacker can launch his virus.

When the power mysteriously goes out at the skate park, the CyberSquad and Digit must find a way to turn it back on before the nighttime skateboarding extravaganza. They decide to use solar panels to collect energy during the day that can power the park at night. But will they have enough area to install the panels, and enough time to collect energy before sundown? And if they do, can their friend out-skate the ace cheater of Cyberpsace?

Father's Day (#705) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

It's the annual Father's Day Parade in Tikiville, and Creech's father, Max (Matthew Broderick), is this year's Cyberdad of the Year. Max was once a schoolmate of Hacker's - and continually bested Hacker in all of their endeavors. Hacker has decided it's time to get even and this time he's got a really clever plan... Using secret codes and a band of bad guys, he rolls into action, cleverly changing the code each step of the way to keep those "earthbrats" from catching on. Will Hacker succeed in spoiling Father's Day and embarrassing Max? Or will our heroes figure out the pattern to his codes in time to stop him?
