Escape from Merlin's Maze (#604) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

On the prowl for a new power source, Hacker descends on Frogsnorts School of Sorcery. His scheme? To steal Professor Stumblesnore's wand and harness its awesome magic to energize himself. Hacker's first task is to get star student Shari Spotter out of his way. He entraps Shari in Merlin's Maze by blocking her path with a series of heavy stone slabs. The CyberSquad learns of Shari's plight, but the slabs that block her escape are too heavy to move unaided. In their rescue mission, the kids experiment with levers and discover a proportional rule: Multiply the length of your lever and you will similarly multiply the weight you can lift. They free Shari, but not in time: Hacker has been successful and stolen Stumblesnore's magic! Is Shari's magic powerful enough to defeat him?

Send in the Clones (#119) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Multiplication) - Hacker's plan to clone himself so he can wreak havoc throughout cyberspace in many places at once, goes haywire when his newly invented Clonitron clones Delete instead of himself. 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.

Clock Like An Egyptian (#109) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Timekeeping) - Dr. Marbles finds the encryptor chip (the computer chip that will enable Marbles to delete Motherboard's virus) in an ancient pyramid. But the Mummy who guards the pyramid finds Marbles. When the kids and Digit arrive, they must work their way through the chambers of the pyramid - find Dr. Marbles - and escape before a trap set by the Mummy seals them inside forever. How much time do they have? Unfortunately, they have no clock or watch to tell them how much time has gone by. Is the mission impossible? Not for our kids! The Big Idea: To measure the passage of time, choose a starting point and count up the beats of something that repeats at steady, regular intervals.

Unhappily Ever After (#603) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker, longing again for Wicked, devises a deliciously dreadful plan to impress her: He sneaks into Happily-Ever-Afterville, uncovers the Book of Unhappy Endings, releases them across the site and crowns himself king! Wicked, duly impressed, becomes his Queen and together they delight as unhappy endings unfold. To rescue the site, the CyberSquad must get the Book back from Hacker to recapture the unhappy endings, and seal it inside 3 nesting boxes with precisely fitting lids ... all before sundown! Of course, Hacker has destroyed the lids, but the kids enlist the carpentry skills of one of the Three Little Pigs. Can the team figure out how to cut new lids in time - or will this tale end Unhappily Ever After?

Going Solar (#902) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY

A televised skate-off will decide ultimate naming rights for the new Radopolis skate park. Will it be named after Slider, the ace skateboarder of Cyberspace, or The Hacker, the vainest villain in the virtual universe? 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?

Harriet Hippo and the Mean Green (#203) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker infects Motherboard with a new virus -- one that causes her to make cyber-citizens act mean. Digit and the kids go in search of an antidote: 2/5 of the Electro-Root, 2/8 of the Healing Stone, and 1/3 of a box of Hacker's wig gel -- a strange antidote indeed! Will the young cyber-heroes be able to gather the ingredients and figure out how to properly mix these odd fractions before it is too late? The Big Idea: Fractions that look different can represent the same portion of a whole. Math Topic: Equivalent Fractions.

Of All The Luck (#112) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Logic) - Convinced that his failure to defeat Motherboard is simply a result of bad luck, Hacker collects the Ten Lucky Charms of Cyberspace. The caper works. Hacker's luck changes, and good things begin happening to him. When Motherboard realizes what Hacker has done - she sends the kids and Digit to Hacker's hideout in the Northern Frontier to help the Lucky Charms escape. The kids use logic, Venn Diagrams and the understanding of the words "and", "or" and "not" to free the Charms.

While enjoying a little R & R in Solaria, Hacker is delighted to see Wicked, who is also on vacation-but she's not alone! She's partnered with Nug Grommet, the handsome cyber-surfing champion in a dance contest. Turning even greener with jealousy, Hacker enters the contest to prove his superiority. Only there's one small problem-who can he coerce into being his partner? Enter the CyberSquad. Observing Jackie's prowess on the dance floor, Hacker has Buzz and Delete detain Inez, then forces Jackie to teach him the moves and dance with him in exchange for Inez's safe return. As the contest unfolds, it becomes apparent that the judges lack a workable scoring system to decide the winner. Determined to help Inez, Matt joins the judges to find a way to score the contest. And, as Wicked points out, it had better be fair or she will wreak her revenge! Should Matt give Hacker and Jackie a higher score than Wicked and Nug so Inez can go free? Or judge the contest fairly and hope Digit rescues Nezzie in time?

Codename: Icky (#116) Duration: 28:46 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.

When the kids and Digit arrive to retrieve the Krystal, they are stymied by a series of switches, levers and buttons. Faced with the challenge of too many choices, the kids discover the value of lists, tables and, yes, tree diagrams! The Big Idea: Overwhelmed with choices? Lists, tables and tree diagrams help you master the combinations.

The Guilty Party (#212) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker returns to Poddleville with a peace offering: a magnificent statue of the Mayor of Poddleville. But at the unveiling party, Hacker accuses someone of stealing the key to his recharger chair. The accused claims he's innocent. Like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, the kids and Digit investigate the crime by interviewing eyewitnesses and recreating the crime scene. But the more they investigate - the more the accused is placed at the scene of the crime. Everyone saw him. It appears that Hacker has found the culprit. But has he? And what's that strange noise coming from inside the statue? Math Topic: Point of View; NCTM Links: Geometry.

Team Spirit (#606) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Interest is lagging in the annual Mount Olympus Games, attendance is sagging, and Zeus is not happy. How can he restore the spirit of competition? With lightning bolt speed, he pits Team Motherboard, coached by Digit, against Team Hacker, coached by Wicked, The teams have to compete in the Triadditon, a relay-type race made up of an obstacle course, a swim race, and a foot race where each competitor does one event and tags their teammate to do the next. Bragging rights and hero worship go to the winners. But Wicked and Digit have their hands full when Hacker and Matt both insist on running the final event so that they can claim Zeus's glory. How can the kids convince Matt to let go of his personal pride - and rivalry with Slider who subs for the injured Jackie-for the good of the team?

Ecohaven Cse (#301) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Someone has stolen the legendary cyberbeast Choocroca from cybersite EcoHaven, and the only clue is the culprit's footprint. Using the principles of "body math," the CyberSquad has to sleuth out who took Choocroca, and rescue the massive beast. The suspects are members of a safari team -- one of them is secretly working for Hacker, who wants to capture the creature and use it to takeover Cyberspace. The CyberSquad must use forensic science to build their case and find both the culprit and the critter before Hacker gets his way.

Eureeka! (#113) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: 2- & 3-D Geometry) - Pursued by Hacker, Digit lands on cybersite Eureeka, where his mission is to find Professor Archimedes - the maker of the encryptor chip, a unique computer chip that can fix Motherboard. But Archimedes is nowhere to be found - only a pile of two-dimensional rods where his chip factory should be. The kids arrive to help, and discover that by linking the two-dimensional rods together into certain geometrical patterns they actually create a surprising three-dimensional shape that leads directly to unraveling the mystery of Archimedes' strange disappearance. The Big Idea: When you follow simple rules to make flat geometrical shapes (two- dimensional), and join them together, you can discover new shapes that, instead of staying flat, rise up to make three-dimensional objects.

Step By Step (#605) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

In the company of the ghostly pirate Ivanka, the elusive Doctor Marbles is back, and this time he's discovered a powerful cybermineral he can use to help Motherboard. Located deep inside a volcano on the cybersite Corsario, this "Magmalux" is strong enough to override the virus Hacker inflicted on the beloved Cyberspace ruler. Unfortunately, Hacker is on to Marbles and traps him on Skull Island so he can retrieve the Magmalux for his own evil purpose. Enter the CyberSquad: Digit tracks Hacker while the kids solve another problem: how to rescue Marbles! Hacker has destroyed the bridge to Skull Island, and the water surrounding it is infested with electric eels. Can they build a new bridge-with just an old sign to work with-and get to the volcano in time to stop Hacker?

Spellbound (#707) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Wicked casts a spell on the Pompadorians to make them all adore her, Jackie and Digit must reproduce the only symbol that can break it - without being able to see what the symbol looks like. Matt and Inez can't get to Pompadoria to help, so they describe the symbol through their Skwak. But how can they describe the odd-looking spell-breaker accurately so Jackie can make a reproduction that works?

Hacker launches his most dastardly and secretive scheme ever! He's building a device so dastardly, victory over Cyberspace is in his sights. His cunning contraption calls for an unusual power source - the Electric Eel of Aquari-Yum. To get the eel, Hacker traps its guardian, cyberslug Icky, far from home. The kids and Digit must use the concept of factoring to save the day. But can they rescue Icky and stop Hacker from stealing the Electric Eel?

Find Those Gleamers! (#115) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Algebraic Variables) - The Hacker challenges Jackie, Matt and Inez to a contest on cyber-wide television! In order to prove to all of Cyberspace that Hacker's not as powerful or smart as he seems - the kids return to Topsy-Turvy Island on the Northern Frontier for the contest. Their mission is to power up a Mini-Wreaker using cyber-fireflies of varying power before the island turns inside out at sunset. The kids must use algebraic equations to determine how many Gleamers - and how much power - they'll need. The Big Idea: When you use a letter to stand in for a number that repeats or changes in a problem, you can simplify the arithmetic and make the problem easier to solve.

Spheres of Fears (#610) Duration: 28:46 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!
