Size Me Up (#124) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Hacker plans to launch a new virus at Motherboard - one that will crash her hard drive once and for all so he can take over cyberspace. 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. The Big Idea: You can create an exact likeness of something--though one that is a different size--by multiplying the size of every part of your original by the same number. Math Topic: Scale and Size; NCTM Links: Geometry, Algebra.

Everyone is having fun - even Hacker is joyriding on his bike (and if that isn't suspicious, Jackie doesn't know what is). Inez, who cares deeply for animals, soon realizes the bike path has divided the habitats of many of Tikiville's cute, cuddly creatures. Creature families have been split up, and the busy bike path is preventing animals from reaching their food and water sources. Inez feels the bike path should be shut down, but Creech doesn't want to take away the benefits the path has created for her community. The disagreement drives a wedge between the two good friends. Will they find a compromise? Will a map of the area help Inez and her friends reunite the cute critters to their families and homes? And what is that sneaky Hacker up to?!

Plantasaurus! (#1104) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY

It's going to be a very special night in Cyberspace for Matt, Inez and Jackie. To show her appreciation for all they've done for her (and Cyberspace), Motherboard has invited the kids to have a slumber party with Digit in the newly refurbished and repainted Control Central! But a case of sneezes, itchy eyes and scratchy throats threatens to put a damper on the slumber fun. And to make matters worse, Hacker has his own surprises for Motherboard that night. Inspired by a B-Monster movie, Hacker makes his own Plantasaurus to finally get the best of Motherboard and take over Cyberspace. Can the kids get to the bottom of the problems inside Control Central before the problems outside come to their front door?

A Reboot Eve to Remember (#1105) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY

It's that time of the year again: Reboot Day - when all of cyberspace celebrates a fresh start and all the bots make Reboot resolutions! It's Delete's favorite holiday, but Hacker is having none of it; he's in a foul mood because he's low on energy. Fortunately for him, the little windy town of Bottowa has a powerful energy source that'll put new pep in his step. Unfortunately for the Bottowans, this power source is what raises the big ball at the stroke of midnight on Reboot Eve (like dropping the big ball in Times Square, but in reverse), and their celebration is being broadcast live across Cyberspace! When Hacker steals the energy source, Delete is so upset that he decides to stay behind and join forces with the CyberSquad, who have come to help the poor little town from Virtual World-wide humiliation. To do this, they'll try to harness the natural power of the wind and build a giant windmill. But will they be able to finish it all by the stroke of midnight? And will Delete decide to stay in Bottawa forever?
