Ecohaven Ooze (#504) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

When Hacker discovers that the liquid ooze that feeds the animals of EcoHaven also gives him a super energy boost, he decides to drain the pond and take the ooze home. He builds a fort around the pond, so the CyberSquad must figure out a way to get in without being noticed. They take inspiration from the Greek myth of the Trojan Horse and build a giant "Trojan Ducky." After testing a model of their invention to be sure it works, they hide inside the duck, and fool Delete into taking them to Hacker. But how will they stop Hacker's nefarious plot?

Trash Creep (#903) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY

Perfectamundo isn't so perfect anymore - the trash is out of control! A giant garbage heap threatens to break through the cybersite's dome, and the CyberSquad must become garbologists in order to reduce the rubbish. Hacker, meanwhile, is digging through the very same heap for some mistakenly discarded seeds that will allow him to grow an army of monster plants to take over Cyberspace. Will he find the seeds before the Perfectamundians solve their trash problem? Or is the dome doomed?

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?

Fortress of Attitude (#123) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker decides that he can force cybersites to surrender by annoying them big time.

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.

All he has to do to get it is win a cooking contest on the hit cyberspace TV show, The Fearless Chef. Hacker's plan? To kidnap his competition. But the Cybersquad is on to him. The girls go on a rescue mission to save the Fearless Chef, while Matt and Digit take on Hacker. Digit is already a celebrity chef, so this should be a piece of cake.

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.
