A Clean Sweep (#502) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker makes Buzz's dream come true and gives him his very own donut shop in Radopolis. But it's just part of Hacker's latest scheme. Working out of the donut shop, Hacker makes confetti out of magnetite, and uses it to put all the Radsters to sleep, so he can take over the cybersite. The kids must engineer a huge "confetti cleaner" to save the Radsters, but encounter problem after problem with their invention. Has the CyberSquad finally found something they cannot do?

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?

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!
