My favorite show on PBS Kids!
Out Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, Arthur, and Wordgirl being the best shows on PBS Kids, this is my childhood. It's about three Earthlies (Matt, Jackie, and Inez) who, along with their bird pal, Digit, protect cyberspace from the evil Hacker. And this when they math FUN. Unlike Dora the Explorer, There is hardly any annoying songs, and the Earthlies NEVER break the fourth wall. It is a very funny show, the For Reals are amusing, and the theme song is very catchy. There is one major downside of this show: the stupid Flash animation. Other than that, this is an excellent educational show. Therefore, my grade for Cyberchase: 10 out of 10!moreless
Why does everyone like it but me?
Ok, one of the worst shows in History! Me and my freinds all hate this show. The acting, its bad! Matt sounds like he drank 66 cans and 37 bottles of beer! Even Jason Griffith sounds better than Matt! And Jackie sounds like she was beaten up by some local gang. And the storyline, oh god its bad. The Hacker makes a big weapon, the Cybersqaud comes and defeats him. ITS REPEATIVE! The only good thing in the show are the Colors, and has some Action and adventure, but still is a dumb show. I mean i know its aimed at 3-7 year olds, but i hate this show. a 1.3/10 for atleast good animation, and action/adventure. Nothing else. Thank You.moreless
It was a great educational show before it moved to *Gulp* flash animation.
Like I said already,PBS Kids is failing to go back to his basics by showing terrible educational shows like Sid the Science Kid and The Cat and The Hat Knows a Lot About That,however,it's great shows like Arthur,Fetch! With Ruff Ruff Man and this show are saving it's life. Cyberchase is about three kids named Matt,Jackie and Inez who defend the world of cyberspace from the evil Hacker...by doing math. It may sound like a terrible idea by the minute you hear about it,but it ends up being a great educational show. First off,there is no "asking the audience questions" thing that they do in almost every educational show. These kids actually do 100% of the work themselves. They even added a little humor to the show,and most of it comes from Hacker or Digit. They are even voiced by Christopher Lloyd and Gilbert Godfried,which explains the humor. And the education doesn't lack. It actually teaches kids what they need to hear. Some of the lessons include tessalations,measuring,and many more. It was great,until it moved to flash animation,which screwed everything up. Seriously,everybody moves wayyy too slow in flash animation. It's just as bad as Caillou in flash animation. I also hate the Cyberchase for real sketches. What's the point of them? They just waste time and are extremely boring. They are only there to teach kids more about the lesson of the episode,but they just suck. Overall,this was a great educational show,but it went downhill very fast. However,it's a lot better than a lot of PBS kids show these days.moreless
Better than most of the shows PBS has released as of late and a helluva lot more intelligent.
Ever since 2002 when it first premiered, "Cyberchase" has been a great fandom of mine, and that's saying something since I don't usually watch PBS Kids. At all. At least until this show premiered, anyway.
At first I was a rather cock-eyed critic of it, mainly because I was 12 at the time and classified a lot of children's shows as "stupid" or "boring" (yeah, typical behavior there). But this show somehow managed to strike a different chord with me. I don't really know why. Perhaps it was the funky "retro" animation that brought back fond memories of so many great children's shows of the past that I watched as a kid, maybe it was the non-stereotyped heroes, or maybe it was the adorable characters. But either way, whatever it was, I was immediately drawn into it. It also helped me understand math better through fun and entertainment, which pretty much got me through middle school with a good straight-A record (math was my worst subject, always has been).
Not only does it feature the voices of Christopher Lloyd--whom I knew as Judge Doom from Rodger Rabbit--and Gilbert Gottfried, who I easily recognized as Iago from Aladdin, it also sticks to the old-school style of cartoons, despite its modernized setting. There are many pratfalls to be had and all sticking along classic lines of comedy, plus a few jokes thrown in here and there. There are even a few adult ones once in a while, which I find a refreshing change. Many shows today are too busy trying to appeal to "real-life" issues, but Cyberchase just sticks to good, clean fun and education. Not only that, it also doesn't insult the viewers' intelligence like most kids' shows do; it even uses words that I had to look up in the dictionary. It appeals to everyone--adults love it, teens love it, and kids adore it! No wonder it's one of the highest-rated children's shows on television. True, there are people who dislike it (such as the guy below me) but they're usually pretty dense (see previous). It's not a kids' show that can just be kicked aside like so many of the kids' shows today.
So give it a try, and chances are, after a few episodes, you won't be disappointed.moreless
Aww, it's cute.
Like I said, it's a pretty cute show. I don't watch it much anymore but my little sister adores it. The characters are cute, maybe a little goody-goody, but still cute (I'll admit that I really liked Diget when I was younger). Also, I think it's actually helped my sister get better in math. OK, maybe it's not the best cartoon out there but I like it OK, so that's why I am giving it a 7.5. Too bad that it might be getting canceled soon *sobs quietly* I think they should keep it around for at least a few more years. *sigh* Oh well.moreless
Ok, maybe it's for 6-year-olds, but...
Cyberchase-we're-movin'-we're-beatin-Hacker-at-his-game.... Anyway, besides the awesome and highly catchy theme song, Cyberchase is a fun show to watch. It explains basic - 2nd through 4th grade - mathematical skills in the context of an interstellar war between good and Hacker. Yes, Hacker. Featuring well-developed characters, pretty good explanation of the mathematical concepts at hand, interesting plots (can anyone say Shari Spotter?), and, like most other shows on PBS, appreciable by a much larger audience than intended, Cyberchase is an appealing program. I don't watch it regularly anymore, but it's a great show if you want to watch kids doing math on advanced hand-held computers - and depending on your mathmatical prowess, it might teach you something, too. C-Y-B-E-R-CHASE!moreless
Matt, Jackie, Inez are the three earth kids choosen to help Digit, Widgit, and Mr Marbles protect Motherboard from The Hacker and his brainless henchmen Buzz and Delete. They use forms of mathamtics and problem solving to protect Motherboard.
This shows is meant for an age group that is way below mine, but i started watching it when it first came out in 2002, and i was hooked. I love this show, all that mathamtics and problem solving does not interest me. The shows storylines interest me, i love the way they interact socially like Inez getting annoyed when Matt calls her Nezzie. The Hacker's brainless henchmen Buzz and Delete are some of my favourite characters as they are very funny and amusing and very silly. However Digit and his little pal who name is Widgit also are my favourites. This show is such a great one thats enjoyable and eductional.moreless
Cyberchase was a show I watched every morning before school on CBC. They replaced it with the Doodle Bops. I really miss the show and want it to come back on CBC. AH if only I had cable.
This show is a very creative method for teaching young children about math although I am older and learning different math skills it helped me think outside the box when it came to patterns and math subjects. Interesting plots and silly stories make math fun. Some people watch the show and don't realize how much math is placed into it. Over a period of time you notice how much better your marks are and feel more confident. Cyberchase is an easy way to grasp the subject in many ways. Not only you laugh you learn and realize how it is an important factor in our lives.moreless
