The CyberSquad quickly learns the restaurant's food is unhealthy...and Hacker is behind it all. To get Hacker to stop making his unhealthy food, Digit challenges him to a cook-off. But if Hacker wins, the kids must leave Cyberspace forever! Who will win the hearts--and stomachs!--of Castleblanca? Big idea: Eat a balanced mix of food at meal times to keep your body healthy.

Less Than Zero (#121) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

The Leaders of Cyberspace have gathered to discuss Hacker's increasing influence, when they are suddenly interrupted by Hacker. Buzz and Delete, Hacker's henchmen, hide the leaders including Dr. Marbles, in the building and its' up to the kids to rescue them. Before long, the kids discover that they can only move between the building's levels by scaling its outside walls! So the kids turn the building into a giant ruler in order to keep track of the floors. And when they discover that there are levels beneath what they thought was "zero," the kids must tap into the power of negative numbers. The Big Idea: Numbers don't have to stop at zero! Negative numbers -- numbers that are less than zero -- can extend the range of what you can measure on a scale and give you the ability to compare numbers using direction as well as amount. Math Topic: Negative Numbers NCTM Links: Number & Operations.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Castleblanca (#102) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

(topic: Finding Meaning from Data) - Dr. Marbles is captured by Hacker and taken to Castleblanca, a cyberspace version of Transylvania. 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.

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

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?
