    • Three days before this broadcast, PBS affiliates sought to unify their schedules with the new format called PBS Kids Go! The new display put Cyberchase in a two-hour block with Arthur and two new shows: Maya & Miguel (totally new) and Postcards from Buster (Arthur spinoff and designated replacement for Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?).The PBS Kids Go! format reflected in all the Web site pitches at the end of these programs, new or not. Nelvana was not aware of this change when they submitted Cyberchase to PBS. Those who saw the premiere of this program and next, may have noticed the closed-captions stop just before the on-air display of the new Web site boots itself up. No closed-captioning for that new Web site or Digit's closing sentence, "See you in cyberspace!"

  • Allusions

    • When the Cybersquad goes to retrieve the Alphadeck, Inez remarks that a mountain in the distance looks like "Mt. Hackermore". This is a reference to the United States landmark, Mt. Rushmore, which represented the first 150 years of American history with sculptures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The only difference is that all four faces on "Mt. Hackermore" were Hacker.
