Creech's Creature Quandary (#1102) Duration: 28:55 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

Creech invites her good friends the CyberSquad to Tikiville to show off the amazing new bike path that has everyone driving their fantastic new bikes and trikes rather than cars. 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?!

They find one Ekardian left behind - Ted. Everyone else left because Ekardia ran out of frixite, the nonrenewable resource they used to power everything. Now Ted lives off the natural resources around him. If Hacker and the kids are going to get home, they and their resourceful new friend will need to learn from Ekardia's past. Can they also help save its future?

Meanwhile, the kids have a special gift made for their pal-a chocolate "Digit" sculpture. But to get it to the party, they must cross a desert where the heat threatens to melt the sweet treat.

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!

Eureeka! (#113) Duration: 28:55 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.

With Motherboard down, they must rely on their quick problem-solving skills and help from citizen scientists to get to the bottom of the trash trouble and protect Control Central.
