Hailed by critics and fans alike, ReBoot made history for being the first fully computer-generated animated TV series. Its unique setting inside a computer allows ReBoot to mine references to computers and video games, giving the show its humorous edge. ReBoot was originally seen on North American television in 1994 on YTV in Canada and on ABC in the U.S. The series ran four successful seasons and was eventually seen in over 70 countries around the world. The innovative animation, insider humor, and high-octane action combine to give fans a lot of binary bang for their buck.
